India: Solar Drying System with Vacuum Tubes Pays off within the First Year

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on August 28, 2013

Indian company ACME Jelly Products has been successfully showcasing the use of solar thermal dehydration systems of agro-products since October 2011. The company, which is located near Ahmedabad in Gujarat state in western India, is one of the rare Indian examples of vacuum tube collector projects that use metal heat pipes filled with glycol-supplying, water-based fan coil units. After two years in operation, the owner of ACME, Jaykishan Parmar, has confirmed that the system paid off within the first year because dried vegetables are sold at a much higher price than fresh ones.
