Adoption of IceBattery technology significantly enhances cold chain logistics for short-distance transportation of perishable cargo.

  • This technology Maintains temperature of 2-8°C for up to 72 hours without external power (Electric supply or DG sets), crucial for handling vegetables, fruits, Medicines and milk etc.
  • In India about 25% of vegetables/fruits food are wasted due to lack of proper storage and transportation facilities. Use of this technology can greatly reduce this wastage.
  • Since diesel run DG sets are not used to maintain cold chain in this case, this technology helps in reducing carbon emission by approx. 70% and less noise is produced during operation as compared to DG sets.
