This video shows a smaller version of the micro-factory. Here it is used for processing a high-value tree seed “butter” – ideal for cosmetic uses and as a superfood.
The system is fully scalable. It is modular and made of off-the-shelf components that fit in 3 shipping containers. It can start out small, serving 40 families, and grow to serve over 6000. Over time, as other agro-forestry crops mature, they can also be processed. The system design is highly adaptable and can be converted to process a wide array of locally appropriate suites of crops.
