Rice mills consume large quantities of both thermal and electrical energy. Thermal energy in the form of hot water or steam is needed for paddy drying (seasonal) and for parboiling (throughout the year). Rice husks represent around 20 % of the resources processed in rice production and using this as fuel can cover the complete energy need of the milling and parboiling process. VYNCKE’s solutions are especially designed to handle the extreme ash properties of rice husk. The ashes from VYNCKE’s combustion systems are a very valuable raw material which can be sold to the steel and concrete industries.
