MIT Passive Cooling System
When MIT researchers aren’t working on Roboat, a fully autonomous robotic boat, some are busy developing a passive cooling system that doesn’t require electricity to run. More specifically, the system provides a way to use passive cooling to preserve food crops while supplementing conventional air conditioners in buildings, without requiring electricity and only a small need for water.


MIT Passive Cooling System
This system essentially combines radiative and evaporative cooling with thermal insulation, all encapsulated in a slim package that resembles existing solar panels. It can provide up to 19° Fahrenheit (9.3° Celsius) of cooling from the ambient temperature, or just enough for safe food storage for about 40% longer under very humid conditions. If used in dryer conditions, it could possibly even triple the safe storage time.

This technology combines some of the good features of previous technologies such as evaporative cooling and radiative cooling. [By using this combination], we show that you can achieve significant food life extension, even in areas where you have high humidity, [which limits the capabilities of conventional evaporative or radiative cooling systems],” said Zhengmao Lu, MIT postdoc.
