CryoLogistics is a collaboration of seasoned academic, engineering, business and industry professionals who are developing economically viable and environmentally sustainable solutions to the many challenges faced by the global cold chain industry. Our first goal is to commercialize a passive, naturally refrigerated transport load unit that will revolutionize the industry. We are located in Victoria, BC.
Our journey began in the 1980’s following a call by the American Frozen Food Institute, a U.S. national trade association, for innovative refrigeration technologies that could benefit all segments of the frozen food industry. Our early design exploited carbon dioxide’s natural properties to provide exceptional cooling power to loads of frozen food aboard rail boxcars, transport trailers and intermodal containers. We’ve since re-engineered the system to make it more efficient and scalable, allowing it to be customized to meet the unique requirements of the various industry segments. With the goal of introducing new operating efficiencies throughout the cold chain industry, our ongoing research and development enjoys strong support from industry and government.
Simplicity is elegant. Our technology has no moving parts and requires no electrical power. It is user-friendly, reliable and economical to operate. It can sustain -30oC without much effort. It is noiseless and has a net-zero carbon footprint. It’s that simple, that elegant. Click here to view/download a copy of our Executive Summary.
Our primary goal at Cryologistics is to develop practical solutions that address the problems being experienced throughout the cold chain industry. We are a customer driven, solutions-based business that listens to customers and responds to their needs by incorporating their insights and feedback into our design development processes.
At Cryologistics we believe that the future must be created. By engaging post-secondary students in exciting innovation projects led by experienced professionals we solve real-world problems and create a future that we can all profit from. We are currently partnered with the University of Victoria, Camosun College and with the Foresight CleanTech Accelerator Centre. Funding contributions have been received from the National Science and Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Mitacs and NRC-IRAP.
