5 April marked the launch of a high-quality, low-emission rice production pilot model in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho

The 50-acre model that will apply sustainable farming practices, will first be tested at the Thuan Tien Cooperative in Thanh An commune. Once the model proves successful, it will be replicated in all of the cooperative’s 512 hectares, as well as other localities. The project has managed to garner support from numerous international organisations and businesses such as the World Bank and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI)

The launching ceremony of the project was attended by representatives from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), and 12 Mekong Delta localities, farmers, experts and those from international organisations. With the aim of training local farmers, the MARD on the same day, launched five demonstration sites on high-quality, low-carbon rice cultivation

Farmers and the local agriculture sector hope that implementing these revolutionary farming methods in Can Tho will help raise rice quality, while also cutting emissions from cultivation. IRRI deputy director general, Joanna Kane-Potaka also hopes that this private model will enable farmers to reflect on the experience of experts and partners in low-carbon rice cultivation.

A poultry farm in the Philippines has embraced Hi-MO X6, which was installed across the rooftops of the farm, pioneering a low-carbon, and sustainable agricultural paradigm

Under the mission of 'To make the best of solar energy to build a green world', the world's leading solar technology company, LONGi is at the forefront of bringing photovoltaic technology to cultivate an agriculture sector that thrives in harmony with nature. 

Equipped with HPBC cell technology and having an estimated annual generation of 300,000 kWh, Hi-MO X6 supplies the farm's energy needs and anticipates a net CO₂ emission reduction of 4439 tonnes over its lifetime – a figure equivalent to the CO₂ absorption of 14,796 trees over 30 years.

Boasting a 2.27% increase in light absorption, Hi-MO X6 significantly enhances power output, with empirical tests revealing that Hi-MO X6 operates for 5.8 hours per day, surpassing the average four-hour generation time of mainstream products. Annually, this amounts to an additional 1182.6 generation hours and yields for users.

Being the first to offer full rear-side soldering, Hi-MO X6 considerably improves anti-crack capabilities and exhibits exceptional performance in severe weather resilience tests. Moreover, these panels also passed the TUV SUD ammonia corrosion test, ensuring stable and efficient power and securing daily operations at the poultry farm.

Symaga's strong commitment to the preservation of its natural environment, has urged the company to increase the overall capacity of their solar plant from 200 kW up to 800 kW this year

Currently, 70% of all Symaga's manufacturing operations are being driven by their own generated green energy resources. The company is on the path to becoming more efficient, sustainable and competitive, with their medium-term goal being focused on shifting the entire production to their green supplies. 

The most recent investment in Symaga's manufacturing site has strengthened the company's production process of the silo roof sectors, resulting in a 30% increase in productivity within the cutting and bending section. Symaga has acquired two new flattening-cutting and bending lines equipped with stiffening rollers to improve both the flattening and structural quality of their roof sectors. In order to absorb the increase in their cuttiing operations, a new robot cell for bending and packing roof sectors has been implemented. 

This action is part of Symaga's Annual Investment Plan, which underlines their commitment to maintaining production and operational excellence, while also promoting environmental and occupational safety standards. These plans seek to improve the company's production capacity, a cornerstone of Symaga’s success, ensuring state of the art production supported by a team of 150 professionals, capable of handling projects from layout to after-sales.
