Descriptif
Introduction of an affordable multi-function technology (multi-purpose platform) to facilitate dehulling, milling and further processing of basic grains and oil seeds and providing a power source for distribution of water.
"Multi-purpose platforms" installed in the villages by extending the use of dehuller and milling engine as a power source for other various kinds of activities such as battery recharging, pumping and distribution of water, operation of oil presses for sea butter/groundnuts or pourghere. Oil extracted from pourghere to be used as fuel in simple diesel engines, the promotion of environmentally sound technologies
