Kobo360’s Post

According to FAO, food losses in Sub-Saharan Africa reach $4B every year.

The lack of cold storage accounts for at least a quarter of post-harvest losses.

In 2020, Kobo360 partnered with the IFC – International Finance Corporation (IFC) to study robust cold chain storage in Nigeria with a focus on sustainably cooled temperature-controlled logistics (TCL). Our goal is to reduce food waste and improve business outcomes by leveraging TCL for Nigerian businesses.

Alongside our partners, as we continue to test each potential technology and find best solutions, we will pioneer end-to-end sustainable cold chain storage system in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Refrigeration (storage)

With capacities of between 18 kW and 300 kW, and temperature ranges of 3C to 18C, we deliver cold storage solutions with zero fuel cost and zero CO2. Our chillers can be run off waste heat from any generator, including hydrogen, and also off direct fired heat, or biomass. We are actively working on solar solutions as well, such that our technology can be deployed in almost any situation.

Refrigeration (transport)

With cooling capacities from 4 kW to 7 kW, designed for refrigeration of trailers up to 40/50’, and temperature ranges from 3-18C, our thermal compressor TRUs run off the engine exhaust gases, providing 100% cost- and CO2-free refrigeration. Back-up power from gas and solar is also provided, making the unit entirely self-contained.

Air Conditioning

Zero2Cool offers highly efficient, reliable cooling and heating units designed to fit easily into any existing air conditioning system. Both our stand-alone and externally powered models deliver a significant reduction in cooling emissions and energy costs at far higher ambient temperatures than other solutions.
