Many people in the developing countries are burning wood, charcoal or even garbage on open fires for cooking purposes because they do not have access to electricity or gas. Inefficient burning of wood, charcoal, dung, and plant residues is causing health problems, deforestation and greenhouse gasemissions. The effective use of solar energy in sunny areas for cooking, food drying, and water sterilization is crucial. At the same time, there are also many people living in sunny parts of world using only gas and electricity for cooking.
The potential of thermal solar energy for cooking is well understood, butadoption of this technology is not increasing as rapidly as would be desirable.Thermal solar energy has great potential for food processing tasks like drying,cooking, and pasteurization.
