Performance of a Fabricated Solar-Powered Vapour Compression Cooler in Maintaining Post-Harvest Quality of French Beans in Kenya

This report describes the efficacy of a solar-powered cooler in Kenya. In addition to keeping the produce cooler, it also maintains the carbon dioxide and oxygen balance and reduces spoilage. These conclusions were drawn from variations of storage conditions and climate conditions of the beans in the study.
