Documentary Short | DoP
India isthe second largest producer of rice in the world, the
problem of waste generated (rice-stubble/parali) after cutting the yield is a problem that has taken news spotlight in many parts of the country in the form air pollution.
As part of this project, we spent 5 day in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh in an attempt to understand the challenges faced by rice farmers, and potential intervention that EU’s Resource Efficiency Initiative (EU-REI) could provide in the implementation of the United Nations global sustainable consumption and production.
This short film promotes and builds awareness on ECOR Global's material value chain, a Netherlands-based enterprise that uses secondary raw materials for making products. Leftover rice stalks, a waste generated in the processing of rice could become a secondary raw material used to make an array of products.
