INTRODUCTION For most developing countries, it appears that biomass, particularly agricultural wastes, has become one of their most promising energy sources. The idea of utilizing the residues from agricultural sectors as primary or secondary energy sources is somewhat attractive sine they are available as free, indigenous and environmentally friendly ones. Furthermore, the decreasing availability of firewood has necessitated that efforts be made towards efficient utilization of agricultural wastes. They have acquired considerable importance as fuels for many purposes viz. domestic cooking, industrial process heating, power generation etc. Some of them, such as coconut shell, corn cob and wood waste, are ready to be directly used as fuel. The majority of them, however, are not appropriate to be used as fuel without a suitable process since they have low density, high moisture content, and low energy density. All of these issues may cause problems in transportation, handling, storage, entrained particulate emission control including direct combustion.
