Dehydration to preserve and provide food!

Lisungi Fablab  -  Democratic Republic of the Congo

The Solar Dehydrator is a solution which is useful for the entire population. It preserves foods through the use of a modern greenhouse storage system which focuses sunlight in a single location to monitor the drying process. The solution differs from traditional drying methods in that it enables constant evaporation and offers protection from bad weather. Some of the young people in this FabLab are not in education because of economic reasons or because of the wars of the past few years.
