Farm scrap needs to be treated as natural resource

Ngoc Hung

HCMC – Many people have long seen scrap in the agricultural production process as a kind of garbage harmful to the environment even though it can be treated as a natural resource to help enterprises reduce input costs.

A seminar was held in HCMC last Friday by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, the Vietnam Cleaner Production Center, and the Hanoi University of Science and Technology to highlight the useful aspect of farm scrap.

Rice processing is vital in the agricultural sector, so it needs improving to reduce emissions by using advanced technology, said Miroslav Delporte at the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), which sponsors an industrial waste minimization for low carbon production project.

Experts said many rice processing plants guzzle electricity, making finished rice expensive. Rice processors make use of scrap to lower costs, according to SECO.
