Title: Sustainable management of rice straw


Years: 20042007


Objective: To reduce the pollution associated with the burning of rice straw and to study possible systems for the recovery of the waste.




Project led by the Valencia City Council in which an alternative management model is sought for one of the main waste generated in the collection of rice crops: rice straw, proposing an alternative to the burning of rice straw after harvesting.  


PROJAR participated in the following actions: 


– Collection of rice straw from the harvest. 

– Experimental production of organic blankets with rice straw. 

– Application of the blankets on the land of an almond tree farm. 

– Feasibility study of the technology applied by monitoring the results obtained.
