Abstract:In India, about 63 million hectares is covered by forest with a deforestation rate of around 3 lakh ha/year (Grover, 1996). In addition to the barren land (around 30 million hectares) available for forestation and forest residues, about 500 MT of agricultural residues are generated every year from agricultural lands(Source: Ministry of New and Renewable energy in association with Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore). Agriculture is the mainstay of rural India, constituting 70 % of total population and 198.9 million hectares of gross cropped area with a cropping intensity of 140.5 %(Singh S Y 2010). It also contributes significantly in India’s economic sector with a share of approximately 13.9 % of India’s gross domestic product (Mishra, 1996). Due to wide spread practices of agriculture, lots of agricultural wastes are generated which remains unutilized. Agricultural residues which account 33 % of total residues has surplus significance as concerned to global warming as its combustion has the potential to be carbon dioxide emission neutral. Low bulk densities of agricultural residues suggested them to opt for an effective transportation, storage and firing or usage of residues at the point of generation..
