Abstract

Agricultural residues are widely used as fuel for cooking and other industrial purposes. World population increases day by day; as a result there is an increased demand of food supply to mitigate poverty and nutrition. A huge amount of biomass is obtained as residues of agricultural crops and the production of residues increases as well. Agro-residues are a renewable source of energy as the combustion products (carbon dioxide) and the energy from residue renews within a very short period of time by consuming next growing season. Entire amount of field residues cannot be used and harvested as energy because a large share of residues should be left in the field for maintaining the health of soil. However, entire amount of crop-processed residues can be utilized as source of energy. There are several technologies for converting the residues to energy. The type of residues available at specific region is an influence to the use of technology in energy conversion. The research on technologies for energy conversion is under progress at satisfactory level. The processes of harvesting and conversion of agro-residues also generate green job in different sector in the society. The success of sustainability of renewable energy from agricultural residues depends on the development of efficient conversion technology.
