The Mini GEM system is a 300 - 700 kg/day parboiling system that uses rice husk gasifier stoves as a source of energy for the entire parboiling process. These systems are being out-scaled in Benin and Cote d'Ivoire.

Equipping women groups in Gagnoa, Cote d’Ivoire, with improvedparboiling technologies and skills financed by FAO and executed by AfricaRice.

The Mini-GEM has been requested and installed for a private milling company in Daoukro with a capacity of 1 ton/day. The GEM system gives best results when the paddy quality is good (absence of diseased grains). However, when a paddy cleaner and color sorter are installed with GEM system, the effect of paddy quality on the final product quality is minimized.

Private company (RINA SARL, Daoukro) install 700 kg/day Mini-GEM system.
