The bagasse was packed in the air tight and placed inside electric control furnace and burnt at a temperature of 1200˚C for 3h and 6h to obtain bagasse ash. After firing, it was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD). Bio-char disk (pellet) was formed by following appropriate amount of silica gel, PVA and DIW. They were annealed at 110˚C for 3h to be binder burnt-out. They were annealed at 600˚C for 1h to be more rigid. The bagasse ash ceramics were annealed at 1200˚C for 1h, 2h and 3h. Microstructural properties of bagasse ash ceramics were characterized by scanning electron microscope (SEM). Physical properties such as firing shrinkage and density of all Bio-char ceramics were determined.
