A few degrees can make a big difference when it comes to food storage. Foods cango bad if they get too warm. But for many of the world's poor, finding a good way tokeep food cool is difficult. Refrigerators are costly and they need electricity.Yet spoiled food not only creates health risks but also economic losses. Farmerslose money when they have to throw away products that they cannot sell quickly.
But in nineteen ninety-five a teacher in northem Nigeria named Mohammed BahAbba found a solution. He developed the "Pot-in-Pot Preseryation/Cooling System." Ituses two round containers made of clay. A smaller pot is placed inside a larger one.The space between the two pots is filled with wet sand. The inner pot can be filledwith fruit, vegetables or drinks. A wet cloth covers the whole cooling system.
Food stored in the smaller pot is kept from spoiling through a simple evaporationprocess. Water in the sand between the two pots evaporates through the surface of thelarger pot, where drier outside air is moving.
The evaporation process creates a drop in temperature of several degrees. This coolsthe inner pot and helps keep food safe from harmful bacteria. Some foods can be keptfresh this way for several weeks.
