Nanotechnology insulation could reduce fridge running costs

Abstract:
AN INSULATING material using the latest nanotechnology could reduce the energy consumption of refrigeration units by as much as 20%, it is claimed.

The micron-thickness film, which provides a thermal protection layer by using small cells containing a vacuum, has been developed by British company General Applications. Called Nanoskin, it would be applied to the inner wall of the fridge during the manufacturing process to provide a highly effective added layer of insulation.
