Research & Development

Glaciem Cooling Technologies head office is located at the University of South Australia Faculty of Engineering Mawson Lakes Campus and is part of the Low Carbon Living Cooperative Research Centre’s (CRC) program

Working with awarded scientists such as Associate Professor Frank Bruno, Dr Martin Belusko and Dr Steven Tay from University of South Australia who developed their whole life to energy efficient and sustainable solutions enables Glaciem to be ahead of its time and industry. Our leading edge expertise provides Glaciem with the credibility to deliver projects of any size and scale.

Glaciem Cooling Technologies in collaboration with UniSA have been awarded the following grants and is currently conducting the research projects below.

The Australia-India Strategic Research Fund (AISRF)

Glaciem Cooling along with the University of South Australia has been awarded close to $1m from the Australia-India Strategic Research Fund to develop a commercialised renewable energy driven cooling technology integrated with energy storage for the refrigeration of raw milk.
