The solar dryer is an invention by Silpakorn University (Thailand), using materials produced by Covestro, which co-financed the WeCare project together with DEG (German Development Bank). A solar dryer can shorten significant drying time with exceptional quality of the end products in comparison with conventional drying methods. This is expected to accelerate the product value and improve incomes. ASSIST managed the free distribution of three solar dryers to three agriculture cooperatives in Vietnam.
