An integrated solar/biochar hybrid food processing and electricity generating unit for off-grid communities
The Sunstore Powerpan XLM has been designed to address the problems of food and fuel poverty, smoke and water pollution, deforestation and loss of biodiversity, low human productivity, access to electricity for rural communities and climate change. It combines a solar concentrating lens with an integrated fire bed that can operate individually or in a hybrid combination. The fire bed has been designed to burn bio-char pyro-formed from crop waste and can incorporate thermo-electric generators and provide up to 2kWh of electricity per day to off-grid communities. The unit has also been designed to solar track for 8 hours while filtering drinking water. The Sunstore Powerpan XLM can provide 2000 (330g) portions of food per day. Where displacing biomass burning on open fires, it can save between 30-40 tonnes of CO2 per annum. This equates to 15 mature trees. The appliance represents the world's most cost-effective and environmentally friendly feeding station.
