Energy Source for Pottery


In collaboration with The Businessmen Association in Tanta (which support the pottery makers in Farastak village),’s team implemented a solution to the challenge of "Energy Source for Pottery" which was published on’s platform under the auspices of the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology to find an alternative energy source for pottery instead of traditionally gas cylinders and electrical furnace used as a source. The pottery industry in Farastak village depends on the heating source used, which threatens the village economy and all the citizens living due to the constantly increasing costs of these sources.

The Solution

The winning solution was a machine that transforms the agricultural wastes as biomass fuel which provides the high heating source with a temperature ranges from 1000°C to 1200°C. The machine uses digital control to adjust the temperature and all other parameters.

The Challenge

TheEnergy Source for Pottery challenge aimed to innovate a machine which delivers sufficient energy to pottery and ceramics industry.
