Providing ice for economically and environmentally sustainable rural development


Food Preservation problem of Rural Communities. This problem must be solved.

Food spoils because there is no ice or refrigeration. The result is financial loss and constrained economic and social development.

ISAAC provides refrigeration for these communities and an opportunity for income generation. The benefits of ISAAC include: food security, income generation and environmental conservation.

The ISAAC Solar Icemaker is being demonstrated in two small-scale dairy villages in Kenya. The project is hosted by Heifer Project International and was funded by the World Bank's Development Marketplace program.
