The project involves a drying system using solar assisted solid desiccant dryer that has been designed and developed for universal drying.
Technology / Innovation Summary
The solid desiccant is used to produce dry air by adsorbing the moisture from the air and the solar energy is used to regenerate the solid desiccant and increase the dry air’s temperature. The drying system is capable to supply hot air to the drying chamber at temperature up to 600C and humidity around 12-15%.

The most promising market for solar drying is generally, but not always, those crops that are mechanically dried at lower temperatures. Crops that are currently sun-dried are well suitable for solar drying, but the challenge is that financial resources to implement a solar drying system are often lacking. The processes that are used to dry crops at temperatures greater than 50oC could benefit from solar drying as a supplemental system, but the drying process must be re-organized.
Jute and kenaf production declined slightly in 2012/13 reaching 3.2 million tonnes compared to 3.34 million tonnes in the previous year. Despite this fall, output was still significantly higher than the 2.6 million tonnes and 2.9 million tonnes reached in 2008/09 and 2009/10, respectively, when demand was dampened with the global economic downturn.
The area of kenaf plantation throughout the Malaysia is about 2210 hectare. Based on the current area of kenaf plantation, 44200 tonnes of kenaf fiber will be harvested in a year (2 seasons). Assuming that the drying cycles per years is 150 times for each dryer. Therefore 184 units of dryer with capacity 1.6 tonnes are required. The dryer price is estimated RM 200,000 per unit. The overall target market is estimated at RM 36.8 million.
Drying kenaf at lower temperature than electrical oven and low humidity increases the quality of the kenaf, shortens the drying time and the drying process becomes more economic through the usage of solar energy. Further it will help kenaf farmers to increase their productivity due to the faster drying process of kenaf and production of better kenaf quality.
