Rice Straw Power stands for clean, renewable energy and resources of rice straw. The Rice Straw Power Project was started in 2006 by Hans Lothar Köhl and the official company was founded in 2015. The project is focused towards reducing air pollution caused due to open burning of crop fields after yielding. This rice straw project has now reached its final stage after years of project development.
After spending several years in research and study, Mr. Köhl along to many other volunteers developed better ways to rot the rice straw which will not cause any methane contamination or air pollution. The aim of the project is to provide clean renewable energy and resources by doing efforts to reduce pollution as well as wastage of energy and renewable resources.
This initiative came alive along with the coordination with Ms. Thi Minh Ngo from Vietnam in East Germany. There are several advantages of this rice straw project. This energy project will facilitate in creating heating and building materials from rice straw. Reports have stated that, this is an environmentally safe project and would definitely safeguard the environment. Several problems of the world are going to get resolved after the successful completion of this initiative.
Under the project, the volunteers have developed facilities which will create heating and building materials from the rice straw. This project will not only resolve the problem of air pollution due to smoke emerged from the burning rice straw but will also provide a source of income to many poor families.
The project is focused in poverty stricken areas of countries such as Asia, Africa and India where rice is grown in a large amount annually. Thousands of families in these countries are involved into farming and through this project they can earn extra income.
