The project promotes South South Cooperation through technology transfer from China
with broader development objectives
The selected technologies, solar, biogas and biomass technologies will provide solutions to address issues faced by the SME sector in order to increase productivity and promote gender equality in the agricultural sector through gender responsive technologies
Advanced biogas technologies from China will be transferred that include process control and automation, communication interfaces for monitoring and system optimization for efficient operation. Applications from biogas such as power generation and process thermal needs will be focus of the project
Solar technologies to address issues faced by SMEs will be the focus such as solar powered milk can coolers for small farmers, solar sprayers, solar powered cold rooms, solar powered greenhouses etc.
To encourage the use of agricultural residue as a source of energy briquetting and pelleting plants integrated with applications such as mobile biomass fired rice dryers, boilers etc. will be demonstrated.
