AGI MILLTEC, as a market leader, strives for continuous improvement to serve customers better and to provide good value for their money. Disposal of rice husk is one of the major challenges faced by millers all over India. India produces around 25 million tons of rice husk every year. Rice husk when burnt in the boiler as fuel, generates ash known as rice husk ash (RHA). While RHA is environmental waste, it contains 60% to 80% amorphous silica, which is useful in various industries.
As an expansion and diversification strategy, AGI MILLTEC has introduced a high-efficiency precipitated silica extraction technology from rice husk ash. The equipment for the extraction plants are designed locally, at AGI MILLTEC. AGI MILLTEC batch processing plants operate at 2 tons per day silica extraction capacity. Along with silica, there are other by-products like carbon and sodium carbonate from RHA that are useful in various industries. This product is currently in its pilot phase.
