Low-cost Solar Cooker
Solar Cooker Japan (SCJ) is an organization established by members of several Japanese NGOs for promoting solar cooking in Africa for reducing the dependance on wood-fueled cooking which results in deforestation and desertification. The newly developed inflatable solar cooker is made of rubber. When the cooker is inflated with air, light reflectors made of aluminium evaporated film stretch out on its concave orbicular surface. It provides high performance using low-cost light reflectors. It is also portable when deflated. Such a solar cooker will be very helpful in disater situations when facilities such as electricity or liquified petroleum gas (LPG) are not avialable for food preparation.
