The thermal efficiency of the existing furnace was found to be 14.75% which was low. The bagasse used was 3.85 kg/kg of jaggery manufactured. The study revealed that use of gasifiers for such thermal applications can lead to considerable increase in efficiency and development of a suitale bagasse based gasifier to generate producer gas for concentrating juice appears to be promising.
