Tyumen scientists proposed creating storage facilities in the Arctic that use underground cold
According to the scientist, national science has not yet studied the ways of using the natural cold in traditional economic activities of different peoples of the world. Meanwhile storages which make use of permafrost can be economically efficient to a significant degree.
There is already a growing interest in using natural cryogenic resources as industrial coolers in the world, Fedorov pointed out. «This is due to the fact that expensive tariffs for electricity consumed by freezing equipment are an important factor that increases the cost of food production. Environmental problems associated with the use of Freon coolers are obvious as well, and therefore the study of peoples practices is once again relevant,» said Fedorov.
