According to research and academic articles, burning rice straw emits carbon dioxide. About 40%-80% of straw weight is burnt and CO2 can be dispersed in atmosphere for 50- 200 years. By this reason, it can be calculated that Kokoboard offset 100-180 tons of CO2 annually.
Air Pollution Decrease.
Burning 260 tons of straw releases 0.8 tons of particulate directly into the atmosphere; therefore Kokoboard reduces the release of this particulate.
And reduce the burning of rice straw, means kokoboard to help slow global warming along with it.
Currently, Kokoboard buys rice straw from 8-10 farmers from Koobangluang Sub-district Administration Organization. This initiative provided a second income for their families and keeps them away from becoming waged or part time labors.
