Evaluation Of Manure For Industrial Application Of Biomass Based Gasification System
Acute shortage in global fossil fuel reserves and increasing concern on climatic changes shifts people’s
concentration towards alternate renewable resources. Livestock manure especially cow dung has a significant position in the
Indian culture. Commercialization of this source of energy is required for the for harnessing this renewable source of energy.
Efficient technological advancement is always welcome in energy sector. Gasification of livestock manure for industrial
use will make local people to use these waste materials as a emerging source of energy. we conducted a survey in Rayagada
district ,in south western Odisha ,India .We came across very surprising figures of this hidden resource. we found, we can
meet the energy requirements of local industries.
