Hi Mitul, you are right ! The value and quantity of biogas recovered from onion does not add much value. That's why i am finding alternatives. This dehydration method triggered a thought to collect this raw onion and sale by dehydrating which will add more value. However, collecting raw onion and maintaining hygiene will be challenge as it considered as waste. Also, you must be aware about how waste is handled in Indian restaurants.

Hi Chad, actually i worked on dehydration project few years back and now i working full time on my biogas project. But anything comes will definitely let you know.

While i am working currently on food waste issue in urban India, i have observed that lot of raw and chopped onion is getting wasted from restaurants, canteens, hotels. I wanted to know is it possible to collect these onions and dehydrate the same using your technology. Because raw and chopped onion is absolutely of no use for biogas. If we are able to dehydrate it and sell then we can more value.

Hi Mitul, the co-operative farming is an excellent solution. In India, there are many farmer producer organizations (FPO) already in place for collective efforts. We can tap this to market your solution of dehydration.
