dc.description.abstractAround the world, the growing concern about sustainability, self-reliance, healthy diets, and the increasing interest and use of solar energy make our project and our goals as interesting as important. We are developing a product for a very specific and relatively new market niche, which is however rapidly expanding. Our target group – private consumers, such as small farmers, families with a garden or a terrace, or simply any person who is concerned about maintaining a healthy diet and a healthy planet – is one that will keep growing in the years to come. The project consists in developing and building a solar food dehydrator. It is a food processing device which is used to extract moisture from different kinds of foods or herbs. The product is specifically designed for the dehydration of fruit and vegetables. The goal is to develop an optimized and ideal fruit and vegetable dehydrator, encouraging the use of food dehydration as a healthy and efficient method for food preservation
