Value Addition to Waste for Sustainable Development

Raji S., D. D. Sarode

Abstract: The effect on environment by agricultural and other industrial wastes is increasing and causing a lot of problems. It is estimated that about 500 million tons of agricultural and agro-industrial residues are being generated annually in the country. Adequate means of disposing these wastes are lacking, hence, converting them to value added products such as briquettes for domestic as well as industrial fuel is desirable. This study aims to establish a mix of options for organic waste processing that can deliver better economic and environmental outcomes than the production of low quality compost or other means that have limited market potential. The present review aims at summarizing value addition options for various biomasses towards energy production and value added product generation.
