Contexte initial

The exploitation of underused agroforestry biomasses in the Philippines tannin sources is envisaged to create of new revenue sources for the local rural communities and to support a sustainable land use and the afforestation of the Philippine uplands. the development of a tannin extraction activity faces diverse challenges: sustainable management of the biomasses, energy demand of the extraction process, suitability of the chemical characteristics of the extracts.

But

The project Pinoy Tannin intends to develop the scientific, technological and socioeconomic basis for the implementation of an innovative and sustainable tannin extraction technology among local communities in the Philippines
