Cool Insights Webinar: Intro to Design and Operation of Walk-In Cold Rooms (1/2)

Watch the recorded webinar!


 Tuesday, May 21, 2024 | 2:00pm - 3:30pm GMT


Off the back of the release of a Guide advising on their design and implementation, we are thrilled to announce the first webinar in our 'Cool Insights' series, highlighting the use of walk-in cold rooms for precooling and storage of fresh produce in the Global South.


The “Walk-In Cold Rooms: A Practitioner’s Technical Guide” consolidates the current state of the art technologies used in designing and operating walk-in cold rooms that are well suited for hot climates, especially in off and weak-grid areas. The guide presents practical guidance for developers, owners, operators and suppliers to make informed decisions when specifying, installing and operating precoolers and cold rooms.


In collaboration with the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR), this series of webinars will explore the design and operation of walk-in cold rooms. The first webinar, hosted by Efficiency for Access's Jakub Vrba alongside Arpana Philip of Enviu and Sonja Mettenleiter, Consultant, will provide an introduction to the Guide along with insights to inform the key technical and business model decisions.
