ECO-Freezer / Refrigeration equipment


Regardless of the rapid development of China, there are still many Chinese rural areas lacking access to electricity, and 42.8 percent of rural residents cannot afford to buy refrigerators.
ECO-freezer is an environmental, ecological and low-cost food preservation device. Making use of the thermal insulation nature of ceramics and water, ECO-freezer adds a cooling layer in the inner wall of the common ceramic jars, which
helps to keep the food fresh longer.
