dc.description.abstract This current study examined the use of traditional extraction methods as well as the most recent findings in the extraction of silica from agricultural wastes, specifically sugarcane bagasse, employing inorganic acids to make nano-silicon. The primary methods addressed here are the leaching processes that use strong acids like hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide as a base for the ash treatment. Sugarcane bagasse has been discovered as the most cost-effective source of silica from a prospective raw material for the synthesis of nano-silicon. Sugarcane bagasse has emerged as a particularly good and sustainable source of both customized silica particles. The capacity to modify tailored silica particles at the nanoscale from sugarcane bagasse-based silica is thoroughly explained. Silica is a key raw element with numerous industrial applications, and extensive research is being conducted to efficiently extract it from industrial agro-waste, such as sugarcane bagasse. The production of highly pure silicon nanoparticles from sugarcane bagasse ash was an important synthetic route in lowering manufacturing costs, and it provided values for the mass of the leached sugarcane bagasse ash and the volumes of NaOH used to obtain the optimal values of silica extraction from sugarcane bagasse ash. The purpose of this research is to extract silica from sugarcane bagasse ash hence reduce the challenges of environmental pollution and health complications and diseases due to improper disposal of sugarcane bagasse ash into landfills. en_US
