Fossil oil supplies have permitted an exponential rise in human populations across the world and are consumed in every aspect of modern life. But the impending shortage of fossil fuels and the environmental problems have aroused some other alternative forms of energy. As a consequence, the demand for alternative renewable sources have been intensified in substitution of the rising demand for energy and raw materials[1]. The aim is to develop a method for the production of ecofriendly fossil fuels since the other industrial methods used for the fossil fuel development with increasing greenhouse gases emission scenario and anthropogenic activities poses a huge challenge to our agriculture, water resources and economy. In this sense, the project aims to study the characteristics of cashew apple bagasse and to verify its potential uses for ethanol production. At the initial stage, physicochemical characteristics of the cashew bagasse are carried out, following which it was incubated with Saccaromyces cerevisiae at 37° C for around 48hours for the verification of the capacity of the biomass for ethanol production.
