Coperion Delivers Twin Screw Extruder to Uganda
A ZSK twin screw extruder from Coperion GmbH, Stuttgart, Germany, will soon go into service in Uganda for the production of pre-gelatinized matooke flour from non-storable plantains, also known as green or cooking bananas. The flour is simply stirred into hot or cold water to make matooke, which is a staple and easily digestible Ugandan meal. The ZSK 54 MEGAvolume PLUS twin screw extruder has been purchased by the Presidential initiative for Banana Industrial Development (PIBID), which is part of a project aimed at promoting the sustainable production of plantains in Uganda, increasing local added value and at the same time improving the nutrition of the population.
