AbstractThe pollution caused due to the fire work is becoming one of the major problems in both environmental safety and human health. The greenhouse gases released during the burning of crackers causes global warming and eventually increase the temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere. The pollutants from burning the crackers cause health hazard in human being. The particulate matters in the dust such as PM2.5 and PM10 are easily inhaled by the human beings and affect the human health. So a new mixture which has less pollutant, particulate matter as compared with the existing mixture is formed with the help of Boron Carbide as fuel and Potassium Nitrate as the oxidizer. The newly formed mixture is completely Barium free and is much safer to handle than the Barium nitrate. The Boron carbide is implemented in the smoke flare and was found to have the performance as same as the existing composition. So the alternative for the Barium nitrate is proposed and various tests are done for the new mixture.
