B4-01 Production of ice slurry with high fluidity for Cold heat storage and transformation

Ice cold storage and transport system are being developed for electric load leveling. Agglomeration of ice slurry, however, is still a big problem. Then, appropriate additives such as bio-surfactant are needed for agglomeration prevention of the ice slurry.
In this study, to prevent the agglomeration, some surfactants were selected. As the results, it became clear that adding of the surfactants could prevent the agglomeration and product the ice slurry with high fluidity
