It’s called the “F-House” – a fast-build, firm,and fold-away shelter that can be highly useful in times of emergency.  It can be assembled as quickly as a tent to house people during disasters, and can also serve as a depot for emergency supplies or distribution center for food, medicine and other supplies.

It’s very versatile, and it is locally available because it is made by Filipino experts.

Developed at the Department of Science and Technology - Forest Products Research and Development Institute (DOST-FPRDI), the F-House comes very handy in times of emergency.

“Like tents, the F-house can be folded, packed, stored and used repeatedly,” said Dr. Florence Soriano, project leader and former DPST-FPRDI director. “Unlike tents, however, the F-house has a floor that can be mounted on specially designed prefabricated footings.”

According to Dr. Soriano, the height of the footings of the F-House can be adjusted when the terrain is not flat.

The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) recently unveiled locally-developed equipment that will make local food processors more productive.

Developed by DOST’s Industrial Technology Development Institute (ITDI), said equipment are part of the science department’s High Impact Technology Solutions (HITS) that support the growth and competitiveness of the country’s small and medium enterprises.

Water retort. This is a cooking vessel capable of withstanding extreme pressures and designed to destroy all microbes to prolong shelf-life and make product safe.

Freeze dryer. It dehydrates heat sensitive materials through the sublimation process, or changing solid ice into gas, under vacuum conditions. This process preserves perishable items and make them more convenient for transport. This equipment is used in prolonging the shelf life of buko pie; vegetables, meat and fish for instant meals and soups; cheese; yoghurt; proteins; enzymes, etc.

Vacuum fryer. This is designed to fry food in deep fat under reduced pressure and in a closed system that lowers the boiling point of both oil and water in food. Vaccum fried foods include potato chips, durian, pineapple, kiwi, and others.
