October 20, 2022 |

In India, ANI reported that Vikas Lifecare is collaborating with multiple institutions to produces cellulose, lignin and silica from rice husk.

In this project, the Indian firm is working with the Indian Institute of Technology (BHU)-Varanasi and Sweden’s Stockholm University.

The main aim of the project is to establish innovative value chain concepts for production of circular materials from agro-industrial side-streams, the company said.

“In addition to avoiding pollution arising from burning of crop residues directly on the fields, which is the biggest cause of poor air quality in northern part of India in winter season, this project will aim developing techniques to produce new bio-based materials from the natural polymers extracted from these farm waste materials,” it added.

The Managing Director of Vikas Lifecare SK Dhawan said,:”The objective of this collaboration is to develop a circular economy to achieve sustainability through production, recovery, reuse and sending back the product to its original form at the end of life, resulting in zero or negligible waste”.
