Abstract:
This paper deals with the characterization of raw material used for pelletization i.e., mixture of Shredded Cashew leaves litter (S.C.L.L), wet dung and water in different proportion combination. The study involved seven different combinations of these proportions, denoted as C1 (500:400:100), C2 (500:380:120), C3 (500:420:80), C4 (520:380:100), C5 (480:420:100), C6 (480:400:120), and C7 (520:400:80) respectively. The moisture content of the raw material in these seven different combinations ranged from 2.60% to 7.53%, Volatile matter was found to be between 65.00% to 74.60%, while ash content varied from 3.43% to 12.7%. The fixed carbon content ranged from 14.5%, to 22.6%. Among these combinations, C7 (520:400:80) exhibited the highest higher calorific value (HCV) and bulk density were 3214.9 kcal/kg and 306 kg/m3 respectively.
