Conversion of Jute Caddies (Jute Mill Waste) into Value Added Products: A Review

L.K. Nayak, L. Ammayappan and D.P. Ray

Jute caddies (jute mill waste) can be used as a cellulosic raw material for production of biogas with the residual slurry for making manure. The non-wovens made out of jute caddies can replace glass fibre as reinforcing material in composites for making various utility items. It can be converted into biomass energy through briquetting and gasification after mixing with other agro-residues. Hand made paper for various applications can be prepared from jute caddies after scouring. The study reviews the potential application of jute caddies through different value addition techniques, highlighting the spectacular progress made in the research and development on this industrial biomass in recent years.
