AcronymCOOLTAINER

Proposal titleDEVELOPMENT OF A MOBILE SOLAR-DRIVEN REFRIGERATED CONTAINER

FOR RURAL AREAS

AbstractIn countries with a high level of sunshine there is a considerable demand for cold supply.  

Statistics have shownthat in sough Europe nearly 10% of fresh food become worse in

quality due to the lack of sufficient refrigeration.This concerns in particular structurally

weak rural areas in Southern Europe (Greece, Spain, Portugal, etc.) whichrepresent about

2/3 of the total territory in these regions.  The main problems in these thinly populated

areas are often the logistics and the lack of infrastructure.  Against this background there is

a majour demand for new andinnovative solutions for decentralised and combined cooling

processes.  Solar refrigeration plants are ideal for keeping foodstuffs fresh, since the solar

radiation which "causes" the need for refrigeration is available in sufficient quantities.  The

COOLTAINER proposed here can be used for different applications such, for exampleas

the storage of fresh fish, meat and vegetables and also of medicine.  Prior to the project, the

possibility ofapplication on a large scale was tested by means of some basic system-related

laboratory trials and the resultswere positive. The objective is to develop further and

optimise the COOLTAINER in the framework of a researchproject so that upon

completion an experimental plant is available which demonstrates considerable advantages

with regard to economy in compar
