The Feasibility of Palay (Oryza sativa) husks and Bamboo (Bambusoideae) dust as an Alternative Cork board | 1 INTRODUCTION Background of the Study Nowadays, a lot of people are using cork boards.

In the Philippines, there are still some people who cannot afford buying a cork board. Cork board is usually seen in schools, offices, and houses. We use them above our desk, in board rooms, in hallways and even next to office phones. We pin up our “to do list”, reminders, appointments and we even put some of the emergency phone numbers in case something came up. Cork boards from different shops differ from price. The prices of cork boards vary. According to CDR King Shop (2017), the most expensive one costs 900 Philippine Pesos and according to National Bookstore, on the other hand costs at around 1000 Philippine Pesos.

Another source of bamboo dust are furniture factories. Made from hard materials, including silica and lignin, the coating of a seed or grain of rice or the palay itself has this covering to protect the seed during the growing season. Each kilogram of milled white rice results roughly 0.28 kg of palay husk as a by- product of rice production during milling. Produced during rice milling, the husk is already dried and accumulated at the factory. The specific weight of uncompressed is about 100 kg/m3. Average properties of rice husk in proximate analysis is a 15% fixed
