Many agricultural commodities and food commodities are being kept in commercial cold storages. Problems associated with these cold storages are during power cuts for cold storage leads to an increase in temperature and can result in the loss in quality and value of stored products. This paper proposes the use of a passive system integrated into the walls of the cold storage facility to limit the rise in temperature due to power loss. Hence useful for commercial establishments as presently there are frequent power cuts.
