Promotion Of Smoke Free Villages in Chittoor District & Employment Generation to Rural Youth Through Solar Food Processing - C.B. Jagadeeswara Reddy (January 2009)

The paper addresses the concerns of air quality in the Chittoor District in India. In the past, cow dung was burned as a primary fuel source creating quite smoky conditions. Some areas in the district have been able to build biogas convertors to create a cleaner fuel. In areas where biogas convertors are not possible, the use solar cookers has been promoted. This area in India has an abundant supply of sunshine. Parabolic solar cookers have been accepted as a good alternative to smoky fires and their use is growing. Beyond domestic use, solar cooking is being encouraged for new commercial start-up business ventures. In particular, because the local mango crop is in abundance for a short period during harvest, there is frequently an over-supply which must be sold at a discount. The use of solar dryers have allowed new businesses to start producing mango fruit bars. This has created more value for their harvest, and provided local employment opportunities.
