Statement of the problem
The study aims to assess the effects of incineration factors on the quality of silicafrom rice husk ash, and determine the optimum time and temperature in the production of goodquality silica from rice husk ash. Specifically, the study seeks to answer the following:1. what is the percent silica composition of rice husk ash?2. is there a significant difference in the quality of silica produced from rice husk ash under thedifferent incineration variables such as temperature and time variations?
Significance of the study
The study will be conducted mainly due to the commercial significance of silica.Rice husk is also viable since there are rice mills abound in Zamboanga Sibugay that it became apollutant in the environment. It is on the other hand beneficial in terms of the reduction of theenvironmental pollutant. The product-to be is on the other hand of cheap cost.
: There is significance difference between the qualities of the silica synthesized underdifferent temperatures and time variations.
: There is no significance difference between the qualities of the silica synthesized underdifferent temperatures and time variations.
Scope and delimitations
This study will collect rice husk from Brgy. JS Perfecto, RT Lim, ZamboangaSibugay. The study will be delimited in the synthesis of silica from rice husk using differentincineration variables that is, temperature and time. The silica will be synthesized from the ricehusk ash by treating the rice husk ash with different concentrations and volumes of preparedNaOH.
