In mid-1979 a project for the Asian and the Pacific Region was initiated by ESCAP, UNEP, and FAO as a continuation of effects to identify opportunities for agricultural and agro-industrial residue utilization and to stimulate development of appropriate technologies and systems for residue utilization. In the context of Asia and the Pacific these crops were identified as paddy, sugarcane, maize, cassava, coconut, oil palm and rubber. It was further decided to match the residues from each crop to specific end-uses. An assessment of the residues from the seven crops and their potential end-uses are presented from the point of view of their environmental impact and from the technologies available and needed for their control.
