Phononic 2019 Disruptor 50

Phononic is a semiconductor manufacturer that has developed new solid-state cooling and refrigeration technology that displaces compressors, heat sinks and fans — ancient, energy-inefficient technology that’s been around for more than 100 years. Phononic replaced the compressor with solid-state technology and nontoxic refrigerants to give medical facilities smarter, more precise refrigeration with 40% more storage space.

Phononic 2019 Disruptor 50

Phononic is a semiconductor manufacturer that has developed new solid-state cooling and refrigeration technology that displaces compressors, heat sinks and fans — ancient, energy-inefficient technology that’s been around for more than 100 years. The Durham, N.C.-based company, launched in 2009, started by selling medical refrigerators used in labs and hospitals. Phononic replaced the compressor with solid-state technology and nontoxic refrigerants to give medical facilities smarter, more precise refrigeration with 40% more storage space.

Last year that technology really took off when the company partnered with Thermo Fisher Scientific as the exclusive supplier for its life sciences and health-care solid-state refrigeration and freezer products. Phononic founder and CEO, Tony Atti, the former director of boutique private-equity firm MHI Energy Partners, claims his company’s units are nearly silent and use about 25% less energy than a traditional refrigerator.

That’s attractive to food and beverage companies like Pepsi Bottling, one of Pepsi’s biggest distributors. Last year the bottling company installed Phononic refrigerators at the end of aisles and near registers in some North Carolina supermarkets and convenience stores and compared sales at stores where the beverages were in large refrigerators near the back of the store. The Phononic refrigerators had better sales, and now Pepsi Bottling is using them throughout the country.

So far Phononic, with 140 employees, has raised close to $160 million from Oak Investment Partners, Venrock Associates and Tsing Capital, among others. Eventually, the company wants to get into commercial and residential cooling so that it can alleviate some of the load on local power grids. It’s testing that in Singapore right now in partnership with Temasek-EcoSperity.

Former Diageo bottling site to be transformed into low carbon development

The Scottish Government has announced that £5.3 million ($6.82 million) will be invested to convert a former bottling plant for Diageo brand Johnnie Walker into a low carbon development. In a statement on Wednesday, the government said that the site in Kilmarnock would be home to a renewable energy center, affordable homes, an enterprise and innovation hub, and commercial and leisure units.

Former Diageo bottling site to be transformed into low carbon development

The Scottish Government has announced that £5.3 million ($6.82 million) will be invested to convert a former bottling plant for Diageo brand Johnnie Walker into a low carbon development.

In a statement on Wednesday, the government said that the site in Kilmarnock would be home to a renewable energy center, affordable homes, an enterprise and innovation hub, and commercial and leisure units.

A brand new geothermal heating system would provide what the government described as “low cost, renewable energy” for the homes.

Geothermal energy is heat which comes from below the surface of the Earth. The U.S. Department of Energy has described it as a “vital, clean energy resource” which is able to supply renewable power continuously while emitting “little or no greenhouse gases.”

Scotland’s Economy Secretary Keith Brown said that as a “responsible, progressive nation,” Scotland needed to show strong leadership on climate change.

“That is why I’m pleased that the Scottish Government will also be able to support our first new geothermal heating system in almost two decades, allowing local residents to access low carbon energy at an affordable price,” he added.

According to the Scottish government, there are more than 58,000 jobs in the low carbon and renewable energy economy in Scotland, spread across nine renewable energy sectors. Onshore wind is the largest single sector.

The government adds that renewables are the “single largest contributor to electricity generation in Scotland.”
