Stovers,

I was talking to a rice grower in Northern Calif. and found out that Wild
Rice has much less silica in the hulls than White Rice. I haven't tested
wild rice hulls to confirm.

Dear Rajan

One stove that burns whole rice hull efficiently is the Mayon Turbo Stove.

I do not know whether a stove can efficiently burn rice husk.

But it seems rice husk can be burnt efficiently in FBC ( fluidised bed 
combustion ) boilers. There are several medium sized FBC boilers operated 
all over India. So the fuel need not go waste.

Regards,


Rajan
