Innovative solar dryer to benefit coastal communities
MetadataShow full item record
A technology-based multi-purpose solar facility in Sagay City, Negros Occidental is expected to open a new opportunity for the local resident, particularly to the fisherfolk living in the city's coastal areas. Through the facility, which is initially composed of three greenhouse-like structures, the targeted beneficiaries can produce quality rock salt or process other products that need solar drying like fish, coconut and others - in any weather condition. The facility comes with an innovative design ad layout that is expected to enhance the production process and the quality of rock salt to be produced.
