SS-GATE Case Study – Thailand-Viet Nam Technology Transfer: Rice Husk Board Technology

Rice husk board are:

  • Fire-resistant
  • Water-resistant
  • Insect-resistant
  • Sound-reducing
  • Heat/Cold insulating

As agricultural waste, rice husks can be used to produce building materials that are substitutes for wood. This process is sustainable and friendly to the environment as it involves a 100 per cent utilization process, by which all materials are fully used, generating minimal waste or pollution.

In addition, its production process requires low energy consumption.

Project matching
