GIEC Delegation Visits the Institute of Science and Technology of Laos


Under the invitation of the Institute of Science and Technology of Laos, a delegation of Guangzhou Institute of Energy Conversion, led by the director Chuangzhi Wu, paid a visit to the Science and Technology Institute of Laos from March 23 to 31. The visit was aiming at further enhancing cooperation and exchanges between two parties.

During this period, they visited the Jatropha Plantation Base in Laos, which is owned by Green Resources Asia Ltd.(Hong Kong), and then discussed the bright future for the industrilization of the Jatropha bio-diesel. They also visited Cassava processing factories, salt fields as well as an under-construction glutinous rice processing plant which is able to produce 200,000 tons of rice. And all of these would help us gain more information of the utilization and the potential market of biomass resources in Laos.

The two sides also conducted an in-depth discussion about the cooperative research on bioenergy and other renewable energies. Further cooperation on researches in the fields of biomass gasification power generation, biomass briquettes, and centralized biogas technology in rural areas are going to be advanced.
