Paddy rice is stable food of a big population in the world .The production of paddy rice in the world has been increasing for the last ten years on an average rate of 16.48 million tons.The following countries i.e China,Egypt and Cuba are the major producing countries when it comes to Paddy rice.These countries produce 27.51%,0.63% and 0.77% respectively. On estimation paddy rice has the following components: Rice (72%),Bran (5-8%) and Husk(20-22%). During paddy rice production the husk is one of its major by-product which is the major concern of discussion in this article.
The husk has inner and outer glume with 2.5-5mm or 5-10mm length and a thickness of 25-30um. It presents itself with golden yellow, tawny or brownish red hue. The husk is rich in crude fibre,cellulose(40%),five carbon sugar polymers and lingnocellulose .The husk has a density of 96-160kg/m cube which is higher after crushing.The husk takes 20% of the overall weight of the paddy rice making an estimation of over 100 million tons of husk produced worldwide. The husks have a caloric value of about 14MJ/kg which is equivalent to 35% of diesel caloric value the reason why it's used as a burning material. As compared to wood rice husk is a preferable burning material.
