High-Performance Portable Evaporative Refrigeration for Vaccine Delivery

Seung M. You of the University of Texas at Arlington in the U.S. will develop and test an aluminum wicking medium that can be used in an evaporative, passive- cooling refrigeration system for vaccine storage and delivery in dry climates. The wicking medium will be lightweight, low-cost, and include micro- and nano-scale pores for high wickability over a large surface area, providing sustained water evaporation to keep vaccines cool.
