DOST holds livelihood training program

Manila, Philippines --- More help is still coming to the victims of Dec. 2012's Typhoon "Pablo," with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) one of the latest to offer livelihood training for residents.
DOST's Region 12 office and one of its attached agencies, the Forest Forest Products Research and Development Institute (DOST-FPRDI) conducted recently for 22 residents of Monkayo, Compostela Valley, the "Technical Training on Charcoal Production and Briquetting."

The goal was to make use of the Pablo-uprooted trees and agro-forest wastes as raw materials for a potential livelihood project, the FPRDI said yesterday.

It could be recalled that Compostela Valley suffered from destruction wrought by Pablo, with Monkayo one of its towns that got hit.

At the forum, FPRDI engineer Belen B. Bisana, supervising science research specialist and chief of Bio-Energy and Equipment Section, explained the process and raw materials for making charcoal, why briquettes are advantageous to use over ordinary charcoal, and how to market charcoal.
She discussed during May 8-10 forum what is a charcoal briquette.
