On the occasion, Prof. Dr. Ni Nyoman Tri Puspaningsih, UNAIR Vice-Rector for Research, Innovation and Community Development, was invited to discuss her research on renewable energy.
“The advantage of biomass energy is zero waste. Nothing is thrown away,” she said.
“If the concept of biomass renewable energy can be mass-produced, the zero waste principle will be integrated more into our lives, ” she concluded.
