Abstract

The efforts were made for the laboratory preparation of useful elemental based powder from the waste/residue of Rohu fish. The concept was initially applied similar to the process of extracting silica from ash. Extracted Residue Powder (ERP) thus obtained by systematic processing of fish residue contained many noble elements like Silica, Calcium, Carbon, Magnesium, Sodium etc. which were scrutinized later by FESEM compositional analysis. The ERP was used as a particulate in the epoxy based composite where it shows appreciable compatibility, bonding characteristics and enhancement in mechanical properties. The extracted residue powder resulted in good thermal and decomposition characteristics as seen in TGA analysis at 320 and 720 degree centigrade.
