It is now important for local governments to portray their cities and towns ...

  • Biowaste conversion technology for household food and energy security in the Philippines: appropriate on–site small–scale rice husk waste carbonisation

    Successful long–term domestic rice research to feed the rapidly increasing population in the Philippines facilitated increased production of the nation's staple from 11.786 MT in 1999 to 16.258 MT in 2008. The additional rice production has correspondingly increased the annual milled rice husk waste resource to around 3.4 MT - currently, a disposal problem for millers who often dump the waste in ...
