Title: Fuel and Gum
Issue Date: Apr-2004
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Fuel-Agricultural residues are a potential source of energy comparable to lignite coal. Jowar, Sorghum bicolor(Linn.) Moench is grown throughout India as fodder and food grain crop. The Jowar stem stubbles (JSS) left in the field after harvest of grain are possible source of biomass fuels. Since they are slow to decay, causing difficulty in subsequent tillage, researchers at Panjab rao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola made efforts to convert JSS residues into briquettes along with deciding their suitability for briquetting and determining its energy value.

Gum-Acacia tree yields a naturally occurring bio polymer Gum arabica. The gum is being used for its excellent medicinal properties and has been found to be an ionic conductor. The suitability of bio polymers, which are available in nature, for their use in polymer electrolytes has not been explored in detail.
