Fossil fuels are the conventional resource of energy from a long time and well known for many environmental drawbacks like greenhouse gases emission and global warming. These bad effects of fossil fuels (i.e., coal, oil, diesel, natural gas etc) are owed to excessive consumption, most commonly in urban areas. India is an agriculture-driven economy where almost 50% of the total population is engaged in the cultivation of agronomic products. About 600 MT of agricultural biomass has generated in India every year (Gabhane et al., 2014; Kaparaju et al., 2009). The production of harvests such as rice, maize, sugarcane and wheat not only nurtures our own country but is likewise a major supplier to the foreign sector (FAO, 2019). The production of millions of tons of agronomic crop every year has also amplified the origination of agronomic waste. This leads the problem of disposal of wastes which our country is facing at present. The waste that we commonly called ‘the residue’ is made up of organic composites from various organic sources like rice straw, coconut shell, sugarcane bagasse etc Bhu. Since the residue accumulates to form a really bulk amount, it is tremendously hard for farmers to take care of the generated waste. The reaping of the paddy fields causes a massive quantity of husk and straw which needs instantaneous dumping during the harvesting season (Chieng and Kuan, 2020; Bhuvaneshwari et al., 2019; Chandra et al., 2012).
