1st Envoy: Achmad Solikhin
The eco-project committed by Achmad Solikhin is Jepara’s Biocomposite. It focuses on conversing wastes based lignocelluloses materials including agricultural and forestry wastes into composite boards. The boards will be utilized to substitute solid woods so that it will be able to reduce deforestation. In addition, it helps preserve the intangible culture of Jepara’s local indigenous in form of traditional wood carving motifs. The obtained boards could be designed and carved of being useful furniture, such as jewelry box, artistic air ventilation, calligraphy, small table, and so on.

Her project is the Smart Filter Technology. It is emerged because of the increasing water waste produced by households. By using filter membrane directly, it assist absorb organic waste combined with domestic waste water. The mechanism of this system is so simple which is by using active carbon from woods heated until 700 oC. The carbon can also be obtained by carbonization method from other natural fibers consisting of lignocelluloses materials. The project will help reduce organic wastes of water so that they can be separated and used become fertilizer and the other benefits.

Thermal properties and strength properties of the bricks are so good, it signs that these are able to shelter our goods and ourselves from the earthquake.
