Hadijah commented on Eco-Storage Technologies

Dear Lia,

The ZECC is a wonder farm low cost cooling technology with various advantages;

1. It does not require any electricity or power to operate

2. Materials required like bricks, sand, papyrus etc. available easily and cheaply.

3. It is a double brick-wall structure, the cavity is filled with sand and walls of the chamber are soaked in water.

4. Unskilled labour can build the chamber, as it does not require any specialized skill.

5. Cool chambers can reduce temperature by 10-15 oC and maintain high humidity
of about 95% that can increase shelf life and retain quality of fruits and vegetables

6. Small holder farmers can store a few days' harvest to avoid middlemen.
