DESIGN CHALLENGE

Current last-mile vaccine delivery technologies rely on unreliable ice-based cooling, which results in hundreds of millions of dollars of wasted goods annually. With humanity on the cusp of needing to deliver billions of doses of vaccines to fight COVID-19, we cannot continue to tolerate this massive waste.

 

Stone Cold Systems was designed to enable reliable cold transport and storage where electric infrastructure is off-grid, intermittent or destroyed. SCS does this by combining state of the art communications technologies with proven thermal electric cooling powered by lithium-iron batteries and controlled by proprietary hybrid charging algorithms. In short, SCS is the modern solution that will bring last mile vaccine delivery into the 21st century.

 

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation awarded SCS the prestigious Grand Challenges Exploration Award in the beginning of 2020.
