Based on the background of high energy consumption of industrial silicon, we introduce the existing state of silicon in the biomass resource of rice husk and discuss how to extract "silicon" from rice husk in the view of energy, environment and green chemistry. Utilizing the latest scientific research achievements of rice husk silicon, we want to strengthen the popularization of science and technology and intensify the readers' awareness of energy conservation and environmental protection while understanding the principle of extracting "silicon" from rice husk. Furthermore, we intend to stimulate readers' enthusiasm to explore green chemistry and chemical industry through this article.

Key words: Silicon, Rice husk, Green chemistry, New energy material
