Nothing cools like a cold drink on a hot day, but access to refrigeration is sometimes tricky in outdoor settings such as camping or in parts of the world that lack adequate refrigeration.
A Singapore institute of higher learning has developed a portable self-cooling bottle with an integrated thermal battery that cools the liquid inside only when the consumer wants.
Licensing or technical cooperation for further co-development is sought, particularly with bottled water manufacturers.
Millions of dollars are spent yearly to refrigerate cold drinks, which are eventually consumed at less than ideal temperatures, wasting the energy used to maintain the drink at a reasonably cold temperature. This problem intensifies in tropical countries due to the high demand for chilled drinks throughout the year. This cooling technology's vision is for the drink to be cooled only moments before consumption, thus saving the energy necessary to keep it cold for long periods.
A Singapore institute of higher learning has developed an innovative cooling technology that consists of a self-cooled bottle with an integrated thermal battery to cool down the liquid inside only when the consumer wants. Currently available bottles require the liquid to be cooled down in advance as they do not offer any means/option to cool the water on-the-go.
This cooling technology can radically change the way users have access to cold water when needed. It relies on a new concept of cold thermal battery, which cools down the liquid to the right temperature, anywhere and anytime without the need for electricity. It is a self-enclosed, lightweight and durable unit connected to the water bottle. It comes with no moving parts and weighs less than 200g. Due to its innovative design, it has the ability to release cold to the liquid in the bottle at any duration for several hours.
This cooling concept can suit potential users involved in the following:
• Sports and physical activities, such as cycling, hiking, running, etc.
• Everyday users who use traditional portable water bottles
The technology provider is interested in licensing or technical cooperation with MNEs/SMEs of all sizes.
Advantages and innovations of the solution include:
• Reliable and durable: Requires no electricity and has no moving parts
• Self-enclosed, lightweight, and portable
• Unit can be connected to any water bottle
• Lightweight: Weighs less than 200g
• Release cold to the liquid at any point of time, for several hours.
The Singapore institute of higher learning is interested in licensing or technical cooperation with the following types of partners that can be MNEs or SMEs of all sizes:
i) Licensing agreement: The partner could license the technology for further development and introduce it to its customers.
ii) Technical cooperation - The Singapore institute of higher learning could work with partners such as bottled water manufacturers to co-develop a new product to be brought to the market.
