ABSTRACT

The Turkish company produces tarhana which is a grain-based, fermented and dried traditional product. The mixture including yoghurt, spices and a kind of wheat is dried under the sun a few days. Therefore the production of tarhana made usually in summer. The company is looking for technologies in uniform heat distribution in greenhouses using solar light/energy to continue production during the year under a commercial agreement with technical assistance.

FULL DESCRIPTION

The company was established in 1991 and has the biggest facility with 55 employees for tarhana. Tarhana is a cereal based fermented traditional product. Ground wheat and yoghurt are used as basic main components and thyme is also added as flavoring agents in tarhana formulation. The mixture obtained from various components is kept for a while and dried under the sun The drying time under sunlight takes about 2 days.
Tarhana production is affected by environmental factors such as temperature, moisture, and light as it is dried under the sun in summer. The production is made usually in sunny days. The company needs to establish an optimum condition of those factors, inside a greenhouse. The temperature, of course, is the most important parameter because it has a big influence on the tarhana production. The company wants to have uniform climate conditions in their greenhouses. The temperature variation must be eliminated and the difference in humidity must be reduced.
The company currently seeks a technology which allows to dry food as well as a sun with controlling the climate conditions. The technology can be suitable to establish in the greenhouse or it can be smaller system or machine which shortens the drying time by providing the sufficient results as in solar drying process. The company is wiling to establish commercial agreement with technical assistance. The technology provider should guide the company during the installation and adjustment of the most effective drying conditions.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The requested technology should include:
- Uniform temperature in the greenhouse
- Easy to install.
- Adjustable heat distribution in greenhouse.
- Adjustable humidity.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: -The suitable partners can be any size of companies which operate or have experience in the food manufacturing technologies.
-The detailed information about traditional drying process will be provided and suitable the partner should provide a feasibility study for the suggested drying system. The suggested technology should be cost effective.
