Green Rice Figure 1

Schematic representation of the GREEN RICE hybrid carbon-neutral system that combines the combustion of rice husks with a PBR that will create a valuable product (fuel, biomass, metabolite, nutraceutical) while taking up and cleaning flue gas. The system is also designed to high-quality solar-grade silica and electricity to the grid, while using and/or metabolizing waste products (rice husks, waste water, etc.).
