This project proposes two methods of sustainable design to address food spoilage that hinders the progress of female farmers in Ansongo, Mali.
Biomimetic design elements are employed to create storage conditions that are cold and humid while promoting passive air conditions and indirect light. Biosensors are suggested as an early warning system to detect specific Volatile Organic Constituents (VOCs) that are released from damaged potatoes.
