SolCold is developing special coating, paint and fabric, that use sunlight to cool objects: The stronger the sun, the stronger the cooling effect.

The technology is based on a physical phenomenon named the Anti-Stokes Fluorescence, where we managed to develop a special nano-particle material that harnesses the broad band solar radiation absorbed by sunlight, for cooling. Specific spectrum of solar wavelengths are being shifted and immediately emitted in higher frequency, which in turn lead to a cooling effect within our material. It als...

The technology is based on a physical phenomenon named the Anti-Stokes Fluorescence, where we managed to develop a special nano-particle material that harnesses the broad band solar radiation absorbed by sunlight, for cooling. Specific spectrum of solar wavelengths are being shifted and immediately emitted in higher frequency, which in turn lead to a cooling effect within our material. It also takes advantage of the ambient temperature as if the surrounding temperature is hotter, then the cooling effect is stronger and vice versa.

Stage 2: Research & Development

SolCold is at the final phase of developing it's first cooling coating material - thin cooling film. Within Q3-4 of 2020, pilots are expected to be launched with top selected clients and partners, and witness the marvel of cooling by sunlight.

Problem

Cooling objects is one of the largest challenges facing humanity in a warming world. The warmer our environment gets, the more people will want to own and use HVAC systems, leading to increased electricity consumption and air pollution - which further heats the environment and contributes to global warming. P.S. The number of air-conditioning units in the world is forecast to jump to 5.6 billion in 2050, from 1.6 billion as of 1990 - according to IEA statistics.

Solution

SolCold is working on developing special coating and paint, based on the anti-stokes fluorescence phenomenon, that uses sunlight to create a cooling effect. The material absorbs specific sunlight energy and then emits it at higher frequencies, which contain more energy. As the material losses it's own energy, the temperature is lowered and cooling effect is achieved.

Target Beneficiaries

Our material will benefit the entire plant - throughout various industries: construction, automotive, agriculture, logistics, aerospace, apparel and many more.

Mission and Vision

Reduce HVAC's energy consumption significantly - help minimize greenhouse effect, and provide a free energy cooling solution for off-grid areas.

Competitive Advantage

Widely used "cooling" materials are the reflective colored filters/paints: these only block sunlight energy from heating the object (at 40%-95% reflection) - thus, they don't actively cool the object below the surrounding temperature. Other future competitors rely on infrared light, which is inefficient in humid environments - while we’re the first to prove the feasibility of using visible light for cooling.

Planned Goals and Milestones

Complete our first product - a thin film to be utilized as a cooling coating material, which is expected to be launched and tested together with top selected clients and partners during Q3-4 of year 2020. Next to come - our cooling paint and fabric.
