About Rebound

Rebound Technologies has developed a freeze point suppression cycle that enables agile cooling for cold chain food manufacturers and logistics companies in an otherwise fixed capacity, legacy equipment world. This agile cooling allows for leaner cold chain operations with optimized productivity while achieving safer and more sustainable operations. A globally patented technology, Rebound’s IcePoint® system provides flexible, additional capacity to meet varying cooling demands. It easily retrofits into existing equipment in food processing facilities and refrigerated warehouses. Rebound is preparing its first unit for Factory Acceptance Testing now and our commercial partners are monitoring this rigorous testing and looking forward to deployment in 2021. Rebound Technologies has previously received funding from the National Science Foundation, The U.S. Department of Energy, Clean Energy Ventures, Skyview Ventures, and others.
