New Leaf Dynamic Technologies Pvt. Ltd. with 4 years of in-house R&D, have developed GreenCHILL: an off-grid, compressor-less & renewable energy powered refrigeration system that uses farm waste (biogas, cow-dung cakes, biomass pellets, dead wood, husk, hay, bamboo waste etc.) or biomass Gasifiers (producer gas) or waste heat of generators for cooling. GreenCHILL is directly benefiting small, marginal farmers as wells as producer cooperatives, who are using this refrigeration technology to refrigerate their produce until it is ready to be taken to market; thereby reducing food wastage & maintaining high quality of agricultural produce leading to higher price realization.
Mr. Anurag Agarwal, Co-founder
Even as India is the world’s largest producer for milk and second largest producer of fruits and vegetables, about 40 to 50 percent of the total output goes waste reason being shortage of adequate infrastructure, lack of trained personnel, outdated technology and inconsistent power supply.
The startup has developed GreenCHILL, an advance cold storage system for small and marginal farmers at a fraction of the cost of equally sophisticated cold storage systems developed by large firms. GreenCHILL can cool 500 – 1,000 L milk & 5 – 10 MT fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish & other horticultural produce without using grid power and diesel generator backup. The system has been built to store the agricultural produce at the village/farm level before it is transported to the market or to a processing facility.
