Generally, coal is used largely as a fuel in boilers. Coal burning emissions containing Sulphur combines with air to create the poisonous gas Sulphur oxide. When this gas releases into the atmosphere, it causes polluting rain. Extracting coal from mines further damages soil and water resources, adding to the disadvantages of using coal burning boilers. Also coal is a costly fuel for local users such as in hotels in small towns, in villages, etc. They use wood as a fuel but that too is a very damaging factor for environment Also the transportation of wood is costly as well as a tedious process as it is a bulky fuel. This also makes the handling and storage difficult. Also the ash content is high and this also creates a disposal problem. Our main objective is to suggest cheaper water heating by studying various bio fuels and try to make it available on a local level mainly for the small hotels which use boilers in local industries.
