ABSTRACT
Second generation bio-fuels are extracted from lignocellulosic biomass. This process uses low cost, non-edible feedstock. One such potential candidate for this process is pennisetum purpureum k. schumach, also known as elephant grass. Its specialty is that it can grow on a land regardless of the soil type and fertility, i.e. it can be grown on lands which are not used for agricultural purposes and especially where the soil contains high percentage of Nacl or has a pH level of 4.5 to 8.2. This paper investigates the prospects of pennisetum purpureum k. schumach as a bio-fuel and using it an alternate source of energy and analyzes the percentage of extracted bio-fuel in lab condition by using rotary evaporator.
