Saving cargo - and money

Abstract:
Green Box boasts three layers of thermal defense to keep out heat or cold. The first is a high-density polyethylene outer container. The second layer consists of "Thermal-Lok" insulation panels. Using nanotechnology, Entropy manipulates the microscopic pores in the panels so energy cannot easily pass through.

The third layer is what Lindquist calls the company's "secret sauce." Entropy developed packs of patented materials made from vegetable oils that change states of matter depending on certain temperatures. Outside energy that seeps into the box bounces between the packs as the materials phase back and forth between solid and liquid states, creating in effect an internal thermostat within the box that can handle settings ranging from -4 to 122 degrees.
