Refrigerators are so crucial to keep food fresh, not to mention to slow down bacterial growth. Unfortunately, many people in developing countries don’t have access to this basic home appliance.
Refrigerators are essential for reducing food contamination and waste especially when temperatures change, affecting the durability of food. Sprout Studios and Draper have designed a mobile thermoelectric refrigerator, a cost-efficient and low-energy device that aims to aid with refrigeration.
This is especially important for countries like India. India is the world’s largest milk producer, but this milk can easily get contaminated with airborne diseases due to lack of refrigeration during the storage and transportation stages. Therefore, this device helps prevent those issues.
The refrigerator works based on thermoelectric technology. The system can cool using minimal power, running from off-grid power sources. It even comes with a multifunctional handle design which facilitates the transportation of the device by hand while walking. It can also be attached to a bike or a motorcycle which facilitates the overall transit of the device.
