|| Food storage and cooling is a challenge in many countries, resulting in extensive food loss. This is particularly problematic in rural areas without grid-access and regions where imports of cooling appliances are costly.
If cooling presents a challenge in your country, join “Solar Cooling Engineering” for an exciting five-day technical training and conference in March 2019 in Nairobi, Kenya. You will learn how to build battery-free refrigerators, ice-makers for fish and milk cooling, and small ice-storage systems for cooling rooms by yourself. This training will enable you to design, produce and assemble your own solar cooling appliances while (mostly) using locally available materials – making solar cooling an economic and simple solution to food storage challenges.
