Ecozen Solutions was started with a vision to disrupt the way perishables are handled across the value chain, with clean and innovative technology. The company is the brainchild of 3 young and enthusiastic graduates from IIT Kharagpur, Devendra Gupta,Prateek Singhal and Vivek Pandey.
At Ecozen we are building a smart + sustainable future through deeptech. We see a shift from unclean and inefficient solutions to clean and efficient ones, and Ecozen is looking to accelerate this shift. We believe technology and innovation has the power to bring change. We look to harness this power to build solutions that deliver impact to our customers, our people and our planet.

Ecozen, a technology company, develops climate-smart deeptech solutions using its core tech stacks of motor controls, thermal energy storage and AI, IoT & analytics. Applying these stacks to agriculture, our solutions have revolutionised the cold chain with Ecofrost (the world’s leading solar cold room) and irrigation with Ecotron (a leading brand in Solar Pumping in India).
While Ecotron helps farmers increase yield by up to 3x and reduces their dependence on rain fed irrigation, grid and unclean fossil fuels, Ecofrost helps them earn more from their produce through proper post harvest practices. Ecofrost farmers see a 5~8x increase in shelf-life, a 10x increase in market reach and up to 40% increase in revenue net off product cost.
Our global installations reduced over 30K tonnes of food loss and irrigated 300k acres of arable land. The impact was not just on the lives and livelihoods of farmers, but on the environment as well, as our solutions generated 2.4 billion kWh of clean energy and abated 2 million tonnes of GHG emissions. We have been instrumental in the decarbonising of agriculture.
Our solutions are packed with technology that ensures they are easy to use and cost-efficient to operate. The embedded AI & IoT elements ensure farmers can remotely monitor and operate their Ecotrons and Ecofrosts. While they are being used, we continuously receive data from our installations that help predict failures and send alerts and even run remote fixes.
Patented technology solutions like InverterTech and IceCore ensure efficient utilisation of energy and up to 30 hours of low cost batteryless backup respectively. All this through the power of solar energy. The world is moving from inefficient and unclean solutions to clean and efficient ones. Ecozen through our climate-smart deeptech solutions is accelerating this shift.
Ecozen’s uniqueness lies in several factors, which may include:
- Focus on sustainability: Ecozen is committed to promoting sustainable agriculture practices through its technology solutions. The company aims to reduce environmental impact while enhancing agricultural productivity.
- Renewable energy integration: Ecozen’s solutions often incorporate renewable energy sources, such as solar power, to provide energy-efficient and cost-effective solutions for farmers.
- IoT-based innovations: The company leverages the Internet of Things (IoT) technology to offer smart and connected agricultural solutions. This includes IoT-enabled devices, sensors, and data analytics to help farmers make informed decisions and optimise their operations.
- Remote monitoring and control: Ecozen’s products may allow farmers to remotely monitor and control various aspects of their farm, such as irrigation systems, temperature, and humidity, which can lead to improved efficiency and resource management.
- Customization: Ecozen may offer customised solutions based on specific agricultural needs and geographical conditions. This adaptability can be valuable for farmers with diverse requirements.
