Green Power Panay Philippines Inc. Uses Agricultural Waste Materials
Green Power Panay Philippines Inc. (GPPPI) uses agricultural waste materials such as rice straw, corn straw, sugar cane waste or other farming residuals as fuel for our biomass power plants. The use of this material displaces the use of fossil fuels such as oil and coal.
Our biomass is collected from farmers and food processors such as rice mills who have problems disposing of rice husk after the rice is processed. GPPPI also uses bagasse, a by-product of sugar cane processing. All of these agricultural residuals are normally burnt in the fields causing Carbon Dioxide emissions or left to decompose in the fields causing Methane, a Greenhouse Gas that is 21 time more damaging to the atmosphere than Carbon Dioxide.
GPPPI activities encourage "Best Practices" within the agricultural and food processing industries waste management sectors. Through our "Biomass Fair Pricing Policy", the company ensures that the farming community receives a good and fair price for agricultural waste that ensures a significant additional income to our host community that alleviates poverty and provides opportunity to our partners in development.
