Technology for a more sustainable world

The solar de hydrator

Why a solar dehydrator?
Where we live there are many small farms with fruit trees, that while they are productive are not viable to sell the produce fresh and the trees are left without harvesting. Dehydrating the fruit allows these small farms to create a viable way of exploiting their crops.

Here on the Costa del Sol we know that many eco-friendly products come from abroad so shipping costs and import taxes inflate the retail price. The certification … Continue reading

At this historic moment the ‘economy for the common good’ appears on the … Continue reading
