The underlying concept of the Eco-Cooler is the principle that air cools on expanding. The temperatures rise as high as 45 degree Celsius in Bangladesh. Most of the villages have no access to power and thus they have to endure the hot weather.

To counter the fierce heat, Eco-Cooler is an inexpensive and easy solution, which is readily available to all people. Thus far, more than 25,000 Eco-Coolers have installed across Bangladesh, most of which are being used by the Grameen Intel employees and Grey Dhaka volunteers.

Working of Eco-Cooler

The performance of the Eco-Cooler varies with the conditions it is being operated in. However, the contraption can effectively bring down the temperature of a mid-size room by 5 degrees Centigrade.

In the same manner, the neck of the plastic bottle helps to constrict the air. As it moves towards the rim of the container, the air expands and thus, becomes cooler.

Eco-Coolers are quite simple to make.
