TechEmerge Sustainable Cooling – Agri Value Chains Andean Countries
In partnership with:
In Latin America’s Andean region, cooling is critical to the vital agricultural sector. More efficient refrigeration, cold chains, and temperature-controlled transport can deliver climate benefits and improve food security, while also growing Andean economies and strengthening the export potential of perishable fruits and vegetables, flowers, meats, fisheries, and dairy products.
This TechEmerge Sustainable Cooling Innovation program provides a total pool of $1 million in grant funding and expert advice to support pilot projects across the Andean region, with a focus on agricultural value chains in Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.

We continuously source new technologies via scouting and open calls for innovators. Pilot projects to field-test innovative solutions are evaluated and selected on a rolling basis.
Innovators across the world can apply to join the TechEmerge program and access the knowledge, networks, and resources to enter and grow their businesses in the dynamic Andean region. Priority will go to companies with proven products installed in at least one commercial setting, but innovations at the product development stage will also be considered.
Leading local companies receive comprehensive support to identify, field test, adapt, and adopt the best sustainable cooling solutions from across the world that meet their unique needs.
