Solar Roast Coffee Helios3

Solar Roast Coffee uses 7 m2 concentrator called Helios 3 they can roast 2.5 kg of coffee grains in 22 minutes.

Solar food processing is an innovative and multi-faceted technique capable of addressing various problems faced by people in the developing world. The implementation of technologies for food processing and conservation using solar energy can indirectly help to reduce poverty, improve health conditions, create sustainable local economic opportunities, and limit environmental damage by promoting the use of clean and renewable energy sources. This project targets developing countries with a high solar radiation potential, in particular those countries in need of unique and sustainable development assistance and ideas that relate to solar food products.

The project aims to extend and develop efficient methods of solar food processing for the following activities:

Objectives:

  • Improvement in the quality of food;
  • Creation of local jobs and income; (See Income generation.)
  • Demonstrating environmental benefits (with high potential for CO2 emissions reduction)
  • Involvement of local personnel and local resources
  • Creation of a new market and encouragement of economic competition in this field.
