A Charcoal Coolant as an Alternative to Electricity Freezers by Use of Dried Trees as We Encourage Reafforestation
Use of dried forest trees to make charcoal coolers that can sustain and keep perishable farm products for a week and this can reduce losses before a good market is found and encourage tree planting.
Being aware of climate change and agreat challenge of over population in africa which lead to deforrestation,which adversily damage water catchment areas and the end result will be little or no rainfall this gives way to droughts and famine.On the other hand unhealthy population cannot yield well economy wise and in education sector or other development project due to malnutriation and poor health.I find very important if the community can educate the youth on importance of tree planting and conserving forested areas.
My big question is can we make use of the dried trees around us?which would help to save alot of money lost by most hortcutral farmer,bearing in mind that in most african countries energy to maintain an electric freeze is much higher other option may be available like generator but we need a healthy population staying in un polluted enviroment,the only solution to reduce money and resources use is through use of alternative storage methods that will be economical and non pollutant for young farmers and the whole community enjoy high returns on their goods by reducing the cost of production.(storage)
My whole idea was how we can built charcoal coolers which are less expensive to build as one need some wire mesh,20pieces metal pipes 4meters and a polethene paper,and timber off cuts to make shelves.the coolant is built near the house as rain is harvested and stored in atank to sprinkle the charcoal coolant house when in use the used water can be piped for irrigation this is a safe method of preserving perishable product for more than a week and it can save young farmers money in terms of electricity bill or the cost or running a generator and at the same time it does not pollute enviroment .
Got a suggestion on how to make this idea even better?REMIX IT!
