|India, the world’s second largest producer of fruits and vegetables, is throwing away a large fraction of the fresh produce. The reason behind this is the lack of adequate cold storage facilities.
Our project is based on the long neglected Stirling engine. Nowadays Stirling engines are primarily used in cryocoolers, but not in commercial and consumer refrigeration. Our main motive is to bring this technology into consumer space. Thousands of engineers have devoted millions of hours to the development and improvement of Internal Combustion engines. Our purpose is to reintroduce this concept and make refrigeration more efficient and the environment- friendly.
|This project is an attempt to cater the urgent need of Solar panel Cleaning and Maintenance.|
