Summary Many situations exist in rural areas of developing countries where the help of simple technology can make substantial positive impacts on living conditions, finance, and in this case; sustainability. In the Melanesia region, there are numerous areas identified as needing improvement, including indigenous food preservation which will be addressed with a proposed solar thermal solution utilizing locally available materials as much as possible for low cost local construction. The current knowledge of the drying requirements for the product chosen in this study is quite limited. However, it is believed that solar thermal drying might be feasible for the remote sunny regions as in Melanesia. This paper describes the processes involved in determining the drying parameters of the Canarium indicum nut, and the proposed solar dryer designs that have been considered for the particular environmental conditions and product specifications. Through the selection process, a mixed mode, low-tunnel solar dryer was chosen as the best match to satisfy the different parameters.
