Our Task

Problem Statement:

Due to lack of infrastructure and split from Sudan, South Sudan is unable to capitalize on their abundant natural resources. Sesame seed oil production continues to be limited due to inefficient manual oil extraction processes.

Our solution is to design a mechanical process to extract oil from sesame seeds in an efficient, sustainable, and affordable way. Our customer is James Tor Monybuny, the Governor of the Upper Nile Region of South Sudan. We will design our system for use on a plot of land outside the city of Malakal.
