India: Solar Food Processing Network Launch

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 2, 2013

With the launch of the Solar Food Processing Network in January 2013, India can look forward to a successful usage of solar thermal systems to meet the energy needs of this sector. The initiative for the network came from private entrepreneur Ghanshyam Lukhi (see the small photo above). He is the owner of Tapi Food, an export-oriented producer of tutty-fruity, jam, jelly, soft drink concentrate and ginger candy, located in Gujarat state, Western India (see second photo). Since November 2008, most of the factory’s energy has come from a solar thermal concentrating system installed on its roof. The well-performing system has become a landmark project for India’s food processing sector. Meanwhile, other process industries have already commissioned another 10 of those systems.
