Agro waste as raw material

 

India is primarily an agricultural country. In the absence of organised data, exact estimates of the agricultural wastes such as bagasse, banana leaves and stalks, saw mill waste, sisal fibre, rice husk, jute stalk etc., are not available, but their availability in the country is more than 500 million tonnes per year.

 

Recycling Agro Waste

 

The building materials industry is gainfully utilising these wastes in a wide range of applications, many of which can serve as timber substitutes for wood-based products. By their very nature, fibrous wastes along with suitable binders under pressure are eminently suitable for making several kinds of insulation boards, panels and roofing sheets. These products can be strong, lightweight and also find aesthetic acceptance.
