General Description of the Research Project

Supporting local agricultural development in Asia through biomass technology
Population growth in Vietnam has led to a number of serious problems including food and energy shortages, environmental degradation, and economic disparities. We are seeking to address these problems by designing systems and assessing the environmental impact of relevant technologies for integrating locally self-sufficient, sustainable agriculture with sustainable energy in the form of biomass. We are constructing biomass utilization systems that integrate well with farming communities, focusing in particular on manufacturing bioethanol from rice straw and biogas from domestic animal manure.

From fundamental experiments to demonstration: operating a biomass plant with sights on practical implementation
We installed an experimental bioethanol plant on the grounds of Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and are conducting research for practical implementation while providing on-site training to local students, researchers and operators. We have also set up a demonstration plant using biomass energy at Thai My Village, a farming village on the outskirts of Ho Chi Minh City, and are continuing research in both Japan and Vietnam with the aim of creating a viable system.
