Cooling Technology Reduces Carbon Dioxide Emissions

InteliSpark client, Heat Inverse, LLC, secures a phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Science Foundation for their project, “Passive Cooling Materials for Transparent Applications in Refrigerated Trucking and Solar.” The research team, led by Dr. Romy M. Fain, Founder and CEO at Heat Inverse, LLC, will develop a transparent passive cooling thin-film product for applications that lose efficiency when heated such as over advertisements on refrigerated trucks or on the front face of solar panels.

To meet the growing need within the refrigerated trucking industry to reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions, researchers will optimize the revolutionary method of entirely passive heat management through the development of a thin-film photonics application to the outside of refrigerated truck trailers. This has the potential to provide a 25-80% increase in fuel efficiency which would benefit customers through cost savings in fuel, maintenance and replacement, temperature maintenance in maximum heat, and reduced emissions to meet regulatory requirements and contribute to the overall well-being of the broader society.

Located in New York State, Heat Inverse, LLC is a clean tech startup that is utilizing a cooling technology for the development of thin-film materials that offers manufacturers an affordable way to increase efficiency.
