Rice husk and straw, coconut husk and bagasse are non-alimentary agricultural wastes existing in very large quantities in South-East Asia. Only in the Philippines where half the land is agricultural, around 25 million tons of coproducts are generated every year. Some of these biomasses, considered as wastes, are wildly burnt for the large majority causing important air pollutions (rice straw in particular), despite effective regulatory laws forbidding such practice (Clean Air Act).
