American Clean Technology Company Solves a Critical Third World Problem

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON / ACCESSWIRE / April 30, 2014 / Up and coming American clean technology company GreenRigCo has invented a new low-cost solar powered transport application called the Solar Electric Tricycle Fridge/Freezer Application (SETFA). The SETFA can transport up to 150 kilograms of perishable foods chilled or frozen, and carbon-free up to 80 kilometers.

The SETFA concept will help reduce the amount of food that perishes whilst traveling through the supply chain in third world countries. GreenRigCo co-founder Lindsay David believes “if there has ever been a more simple solution to solve a very critical problem in underdeveloped countries, this is it. With an operating cost of less than ten cents per day, developing countries could reduce the amount of food that perishes within the supply chain by 50%-70%. The less food that perishes or becomes exposed to bacteria; the better chance more people in underdeveloped countries will have affordable access to fresh food, milk and water.”

The SETFA is a carbon-free, low-cost electric transport application with an integrated fridge and freezer to transport perishable food and liquids. The SETFA is built and designed by GreenRigCo. GreenRigCo believes this technology could replace animal (cows, donkey & horse) powered wagons transporting perishable foods at air temperature in third world countries.
