Promoting Innovation & Trade in Horticulture

Pitch Presentation at 2.55pm today at the conference hall.

Innovation Solution: Re-use of Plastic (PET) Bottles for Cold Rooms (Eco-Cold Storage)

EcoLife foods has established a low cost insulation technology for cold storage facilities by recycling plastic waste bottles. The plastic (PET) bottles are collected from all the hotels, restaurant and collection centres in the suburbs of Kampala. These are cleaned, closed and re-used as source material for insulation in the cavity wall for Eco-cold storage® facilities.

Insulation is very important in cold rooms in achieving energy efficiency and maintaining temperature conditions which can extend the shelf-life of the perishable fruits and vegetables. The facility helps to curb the rate of high post-harvest loses faced in the horticulture and therefore farmers can have more stable prices/income.
