In a successful circular economy initiative, focused on adding value to one of the main residues in our operations, we have been using processed rice husks in some industrial plants to generate energy. By using rice husks to generate energy from biomass, we reduce the demand for fossil fuels, since rice husks have a high calorific value and thermal regularity suitable for the production of thermoelectric processes.
