Laguna soon to have rice straw biogas hub

LOS BAÑOS, Laguna: A Philippine government-hosted intergovernmental treaty organization in collaboration with a United Kingdom-based research organization has embarked on a project to make clean energy accessible to remote and underserved rural communities.

Dr. Glenn Gregorio, Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (Searca) director, said the project, "Rice Straw Biogas Hub," is a three-year undertaking.

Gregorio said the project will generate biogas as clean energy from waste rice straw and provide an innovative package of technology services for rice farmers.

The project which is funded by Innovate UK under the auspices of the United Kingdom Research and Innovation organization is gearing for its first commercial scale in this province starting in September 2022.

The lead proponent is UK-registered startup Straw Innovations (SI) in collaboration with Searca, the UK SME Koolmill, and UK academic partner, Aston University.
