Trane Technologies

Project: Cooling Cart for Street Vendors

A global team of Trane Technologies employees consulted with fruit and vegetable street vendors on their greatest needs, then designed and prototyped an affordable cooling cart that leverages passive radiative cooling technology. This project is an undertaking of Operation Possible, a social innovation program Trane Technologies.

The Problem: Reduce food loss and waste:

Over 30% of the food produced each year is lost or wasted 8%of global greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste More than 25M street vendors sell street vendors sell fruit and vegetables in developing economies With research support from CCCIR team, Trane technologies developed a cooling canopy using dual-mode film technology developed by SkyCool Systems. The film reflects sunlight to prevent fresh produce from overheating, while passively cooling the area beneath the canopy by emitting infrared heat to the sky keeping the produce fresh for longer, decreasing food waste and increasing the street vendors’ potential income. Reducing food loss and increasing vendor income with passive cooling technology.

Cambridge Institute of Technology focuses on imparting quality education to all. We provide an opportunity to all our students to develop the qualities of global professionals. An academic platform through standardized teaching learning processes assist the students towards achieving academic excellence. At Cambridge  Institute of Technology, the students are trained on emerging technologies through Industry collaborative programmes, Real time projects and Internship opportunities through Industry sponsored labs, participate in research activities in advanced research labs. A start up ecosystem is established at the Institute for students and faculty with mentoring, training and infrastructure support to inculcate the start up culture among the young minds. Students have ample opportunities to participate in sports and extra curricular activities. Technical competencies through various clubs at the Departments. Our goal is to develop our students as technocrats who can contribute  to the society and build a sustainable eco system.
