    Nice review of an emerging biomass market to Asia. Philippines can certainly be a sustainable supply chain for biomass energy and animal feed. Viaspace Inc I understand is reviewing opportunities for their Giant King Grass. Thanks Salman!

      Biomass energy projects can be of small, medium as well as large capacities. It can definitely be tailored for a small community in the Philippines and elsewhere.
      Hope this information is of interest.

      Best wishes

    It was stated that “Rice hull is perhaps the most important, underdeveloped biomass resource that could be fully utilized in a sustainable manner.” Why is it still underdeveloped? What are the hindrances?

    Biomass potential is higher: 16 million tons is what is dumped for the larger part. Excluded is rice straw (burned in field, although not allowed), reject wood, sawdust, from clearings etc.
    Main points that it isn’t getting developed: a. transport (only trucks and small roads); b. central grid instead of distributed (co)generation, c. very low mechanization grade and antiquated processing facilities.
