We want to utilise local bio-resources (mainly considered waste) & convert them to value added products in a Bio-Refinery type concept. The motivation behind this idea is the readily available bio (waste) resources, eg. Coconut husk, surplus Rice Straw, Bamboo, etc. and a large growth market where the products can find place, i.e. the road construction industry.
For starters, we want to create binders from our Agro-Waste and use it as a partial replacement for bitumen in the road construction sector. Such a process has already been proven by European research groups, who would be our eventual partners in the project.
