Turn biowaste into resources: Thailand's big step towards CO2 neutral and circular economy

Thailand produces over 5,000-6,000 tonnes of waste per day. More than 60% of them are bio-waste. It poses a significant challenge in sustainable waste disposal vs. is an opportunity of recycling a massive pile of biowaste for new products. Thanks to a team of researchers from #Khon Kaen University, #Kasetsart University, and a social enterprise like #Thaiprotien  for initating a black soldier fly (BSF) farming. The innovation helps converse biowaste into insect protein for livestock feed.  Biomass from this process can also turn back to the soil for improving soil health. This technology is now available.

The Integrated Pest Management (IPM) of the Better Rice Initiative Asia (BRIA) project strengthens farmers’ ability to produce the sustainable rice and enhance the sustainable rice value chain markets for small farmers. The period of project is from April 2018 to February 2022 and implemented under the cooperation between the Rice Department, OLAM International and GIZ.

The project focuses on supporting the activities to transfer knowledge and encourage farmers participating in the project to apply the Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP) standard guidelines with pilot areas in three provinces, namely Ubon Ratchathani, Roi Et, and Surin. Its goal is to increase the productivity to at least 150,000 tons, which will be a role model for the development of sustainable rice in the global market.
