Giant solar-powered fridge solves food problems
The Aldelano Solar ColdBox is an industrial-grade, portable, solar-powered cold storage mini-warehouse that provides refrigeration, freezing capacity, water, ice, and a completely renewable auxiliary power source, all by harnessing the power of the sun. All this can be done with virtually no operating costs.
Aldelano Corporation founder Al Hollingsworth has observed the problem of hunger firsthand. An expert in the refrigerated food supply chain, he decided to do something about it. “We are offering an alternative to the infrastructure, a way to generate power, refrigeration, and safe drinking water almost anywhere, at any time.”
Equipped with the optional Solar WaterMaker, each Solar ColdBox can also produce up to 50 gallons of clean, drinkable water per day by extracting moisture from the air—which can save lives worldwide. Illnesses caused by unsafe drinking water claim the lives of 1 out of every 5 children under age 5 each year worldwide. UNESCO estimates that by 2025, almost 2 billion people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity.
The Aldelano Solar ColdBox is not just a solution for the developing world. The technology is also an ideal fit for military and mining base camps, hospitals and clinics, relief organizations, warehouses, and the agricultural and grocery industries.
