Scientists and experts are never stopped in conducting researches in order to solve various problems people might have faced today and in the future. Renewable energy sources are still being the main target and hundreds new researches are conducted every year in order to find the best possible source of renewable energy that would change the way people use energy nowadays. Among so many interesting projects being conducted by those experts today, there is the Rice Straw Power project that potentially is to be able to make a huge contribution to environment preservation.
So what is Rice Straw Power project all about? The project is mainly about finding an alternative way to make good use of rice straw waste, especially after harvest season. The fact is, most farmers are still using the traditional way to get rid of those rice straw wastes, such as by burning it in the open environment, which could pollute the air severely. So, instead of burning it, the project had found an alternative way to utilize these rice straw as renewable energy as well as also to be used as housing materials. Yes, someone’s trash may be other people’s treasure. In the right hand, something that seems to have no value at all, such as the rice straw can be transformed into something useful that even could help improve the life of poor people.
Shortly speaking, the Rice Straw Power project offers various great benefits, such as the significant reduction of air pollution, more environment-friendly rice straw waste management, renewable source of rice straw energy, and in a big picture, the project is expected to be able to help reduce the risk of severe climate change in the future. There are various other great benefits can be gained from the project, including also more affordable building materials thanks to the unlimited stocks of rice straws especially in agricultural countries.
About the Rice Straw Power Company an Project:
The Rice Straw Power Project was pioneered by Hans Lothar Köhl. He started the project in 2006. The idea came to his mind after he realized the significant amount of air pollutants were produced by open crop burning after yielding. He believed that the repetitive tradition of crop burning has hugely contributed in triggering climate change that occurred nowadays.
And to participate in climate protection, he managed to start researching an alternative way to manage the rice straw waste in as a friendliest possible way to the environment. The official Rice Straw Power Company was founded in 2015! The project team stands for clean renewable energy, fuels and innovative building materials made from rice straw.
Environmental and climate protection plays a special role.
