SolarFreezer Freezer BoxA solar-thermal ice producer with zeolite technology for providing icepacks for refrigerated transport.
The SolarFreezer was designed to run without electricity as a solar-thermal freezer with zeolite technology for providing icepacks for refrigerated transport. The aim was to develop a rugged solar-thermal-powered refrigeration system that only requires little electrical energy and, on the whole, works with a higher level of energy-efficiency than conventional systems. Further innovative aspects of the project included completely foregoing large electric batteries and using environmentally-friendly materials.
The SolarFreezer is a "Selected Landmark 2011". With this development, Zeo-Tech won an award in the competition "365 Landmarks in the Land of Ideas"
This development was funded by the German Ministry of Economics and Technology on the basis of a resolution by the German parliament's Central Innovation Program for SMEs" (ZIM): Funding code EP092215
Zeo-Tech has filed for a patent for the SolarFreezer: DE102011011308
