Biomass Gasification Technology - Sustainable Energy Solution for Agri-Food Processing and Waste Management in Rural Areas of Vietnam (BEST) (2020 - 2024)
The Biomass Gasification Technology, a Sustainable energy solution for Agri-food processing and Waste management in rural areas of Vietnam project (or BEST Project) aims to promote the adoption of volumetric continuous biomass gasification technology (VCBG) in the agri-MSEs, positively contributing to the transition to renewable energy and waste management in Vietnam by scaling up the adoption of environmentally friendly and low-cost volumetric continuous biomass gasification (VCBG) technology.
Thai Nguyen, Tuyen Quang, Yen Bai, Lao Cai provinces; then national level.
To promote sustainable agri-food processing and contribute to enhancing waste management in Vietnam by facilitating the adoption of VCBG as renewable energy among agri-MSEs.
tonnes of biomass are used as fuel for VCBG in the four provinces.
tonnes of CO2 equivalent are reduced in the four provinces.
Planned research under the BEST project
A study of the domestic and international market potential for biochar:
The study explores the current size, applications, benefits, production costs, pricing, and future trends of the biochar market. In addition, the study will map the stakeholders in this sector.
A study of comprehensive cost-benefit calculations for deploying VCBG in agri-food processing, including biochar:
The study will develop standard cost-benefit calculations for the use of VCBG for MSEs in the agri-food processing industry taking into account specific local contexts. The calculations will quantify and compare VCBG-related investment and operational costs with its economic, social and environmental benefits.
