Summary No spare parts portrays the introduction and utilization of appropriate technology in a developing nation. In Ghana, thrown away materials are being recovered, and used to build and modernize their economy. Requiring only minimal financial resources, small workshops use recycled automobile parts and traditional crafting skills to produce machinery of great benefit to the local people. Grinding mills, lathes, palm oil presses and lumber saws, all made from scrap, enable the population to improve their everyday lives. Ghana's utilization of discards as a resource for raw materials reduces their reliance on imports and improves their independence and self-reliance. The appropriate technology movement is burgeoning in Ghana, having a beneficial impact on all levels of society.
