Breakthrough Technology to be Introduced to Nevada Leaders
Published on Wed, Feb 17, 2016 (10:40 a.m.)Al Hollingsworth, Aldelano Founder and former Commissioner of Economic Development for the state of California speaks to Nevada business and community leaders at the Innevation Center.
Las Vegas – The Royal Tech Team, recipient of the Emerging Business Award 2015, and the Urban Chamber of Commerce will host Al Hollingsworth to share his vision for the Aldelano Solar Coldbox at the Innevation Center on Thursday, February 18th at 10:00 a.m.
Mr. Hollingsworth will speak to Southern Nevada leaders including members of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, LVCVA (Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority) Chairman and Clark County of Southern Nevada Commissioner Lawrence Weekly and Urban Chamber of Commerce President Ken Evans about the possibility of creating as many as 500 technical jobs for Nevada residents. The Aldelano Solar Coldbox is the company’s answer to the problems of extensive food waste and water storage. Hollingsworth founded the Aldelano Corporation in 1968 and has since grown the company to be a national leader in customized assembly packaging and warehouse services with operations nationwide.
Experts estimate that 40% of the world’s food supply is wasted, much of it because cold storage is not available. “On a national and a local scale, what separates the “haves” from the “have nots” is often their access to dependable infrastructure- electricity, clean water and refrigeration. The Aldelano Solar Coldbox was created as an alternative to this missing or unreliable infrastructure that cripples communities in the developing world,” Hollingsworth says.
Hunger is just one of many problems linked to failed infrastructure. Worldwide water-related diseases claim lives of one out of every five children under the age of five. The optional Aldelano Solar WaterMaker generates up to fifty gallons of safe drinking water each day by extracting moisture from the air. This feature, combined with the Aldelano Solar IceMaker and auxiliary power feature, makes the Aldelano Solar ColdBox an ideal solution for short-term disaster relief efforts and long-term community sustainability.
“We are excited about exploring the opportunities in Nevada and working to impact the world by solving the challenge of hunger, both here and abroad.” Hollingsworth states.
Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions (Aldelano Corporation) was established 48 years ago by Al & Hattie Hollingsworth, and has become a National leader in Custom Assembly Packaging/Fulfillment Services providing Warehousing for ambient and refrigerated products. They are also founders of B.O.S.S. The Movement and owners of the beautiful Alhatti Christian Resort on the 123-acre California film site of the former television hit series, "Bonanza". Their contributions have impacted many people throughout the world.
