Rice Husk

We are offering Rice Husk in lose form.  Rice Husk is the hard protecting coverings of grains of rice. In addition to protecting rice during the growing season, Rice Husk are a class item for animal feed. It can be put also in building material, fertilizer, insulation material & as alternative fuel.

ANIMAL FEED

Rice Husk are a class item for animal feed

BUILDING MATERIAL

Rice Husk are a class A thermal insulating material because they are difficult to burn and less likely to allow moisture to propagate mold or fungi. It has been found that when burned, rice Husk produce significant amounts of silica. Rice Husk ash is a potential source of amorphous reactive silica. If burnt completely, the ash can have a blaine no. of as much as 3,600 compared to the Blaine no. of cement between 2,800 to 3,000, meaning it is finer than cement. Silica is the basic component of sand, which is used with cement for plastering and concreting. This fine silica will provide a very compact concrete.

The ash also is a very good thermal insulation material. The fineness of the ash also makes it a very good candidate for sealing fine cracks in civil structures, where it can penetrate deeper than the conventional cement sand mixture.

FERTILIZER AND SUBSTRATE

Rice Husk can be composted, but their high lignin content can make this a slow process. Sometimes earthworms are used to accelerate the process. Using vermicomposting techniques, Husk can be converted to fertilizer in about four months.

Rice Husk that are parboiled (PBH) are used as a substrate or medium for gardening, including certain hydrocultures. The Husk decay over time. Rice Husk allow drainage and retain less water than growstones. It has been shown that rice Husk do not affect plant growth regulation.

FIREWORKS

Rice Husk are coated with fine-grained gunpowder and used as the main bursting charge in aerial fireworks shells.

FUEL

With proper techniques, Guar Straw can be burned and used to power steam engines in various industries.
