Cai Be Rice Husk Thermal Energy Generation Project

Project Overview

  • Universal Project Number (UPN) 09905962
  • Project Name Cai Be Rice Husk Thermal Energy Generation Project
  • Description Wilmar Agro Vietnam Company Limited produces rice bran oil, in Can Tho province, Viet Nam. The rice bran is procured from rice mills locally available within a radius of 150 km and stabilized at a pelletization plant closer to the sources of rice bran (within 60 km) in Cai Be District. Additional steam requirement led to ceasing of existing coal-fired boiler without going for any retrofit for capacity enhancement, and the implementation of a 7.2 MT/hour green-field risk-husk based boiler. The new boiler has a rated capacity to supply 1.5 MPa pressure steam at around 198oC. The rice husks generated in rice mills in the region are generally in excess and get disposed in unplanned ways into nearby rivers. As a result of such disposal and due to natural decay in the absence of the project activity, the rice husks used in the project would have emitted methane. Thus, in addition to reducing GHG emissions through displacing coal, the project avoids emission of methane.
