Biomass Fired Dryer

  • Preservation of fruits and vegetables for prolonged periods is a major problem for rural economy.
  • Modern commercial dehydration machines are expensive and consume large amount of electricity.
  • Moreover availability of electricity in the rural areas is also poor.
  • With these in view, a reasonably low cost dryer which is efficient and based on wood fuel has been designed and built by Science & Technology Department, Nagaland.
  • It is hoped that such a dryer will boost the rural economy.
