Welcome to Solar Food Processing Network
The aim of the Solar Food Processing Network is to establish a global network of interested parties (NGOs, politicians, farmers, and experts) in order to develop and promote efficient methods of solar food processing and conservation.
The implementation of solar-based technologies for food processing and conservation can help to reduce poverty, improve local economic opportunities and health conditions, and reduce environmental damage. Particularly, in countries with a high solar radiation potential, proper solar technologies can contribute to the sustainable development of small rural communities.
The Solar Food Processing Network is managed by the German NGO “Solare Zukunft” which means “Solar Future” in English (http://www.solarezukunft.org). It is financially supported by WISIONS (http://www.wisions.net) an initiative of the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy to foster practical sustainable energy projects. The network was developed and is still managed by Rolf Behringer.
