All that glitters is not gold thus all that sweet is not so sweet. Sugar is our everyday commodity but we rarely give a second thought to how and where it is produced and what cost our environment have to pay for it. The focus of this book is to provide the reader the grounds for better understanding of the air pollution problems in sugar industries, their root causes and critical environmental impacts resulted during the sugar manufacturing process. Data from four sugar millls of Punjab (Pakistan) was collected and analysed. The whole study was framed in the light of National Environmental Quality standards (NEQs). It was noted that carbon monoxide (CO), particulate matter (PM) and smoke exceed the NEQs limits. Various air pollution control and treatment technologies were explored, reviewed and evaluated to find out the best possible solutions to make the sugar manufacturing process more supporting and sustainable for environment. These include reduction at source, modification in processes and use of appropriate equipments such as Cyclones, Wet Scrubber, Bagasse Filters, Electrostatic Precipitator and Settling Chambers etc.
Conventional roughage sources such as jowar stover, maize stover were compared with sweet sorghum bagasse an unconventional roughage procured as agro industrial by product. The roughages were incorporated (at 50% level) in complete rations and were fed as expander extruded pellets in growing ram lambs divided into three groups for 120 days after weaning. The parameters such as growth, digestibility, carcass quality and economics of feeding were evaluated in-depth.
Livestock production in the developing countries has been one of the most important economic and social activities of human culture. Ruminants have served and will continue to serve a valuable role in sustainable agricultural system. They are particularly useful in converting vast renewable resources from rangeland, pasture and crop residues into food, edible for humans. Among ruminants, sheep and goats play a vital role in the rural economy of India. They not only provide food security, employment and manure but also have great social value. Incorporation of unconventional feedstuffs, such as agro-industrial by-products (AIBP) in animal diets may help in solving the problem of feed shortage. Many economic advantages could be obtained through processing and recovering such agricultural by-products in different methods, including ensiling, biological, chemical and mechanical treatments. Dealing with such residues and agro-industrial by-products led to, decrease the feeding costs and alleviate the pollution problems. One in this direction is sweet sorghum bagasse, an agro-industrial by-product of ethanol industry.
