The Costa Rican Foundation for Sustainable Development works to improve human development, economic balance, and the respect for environment through the promotion of technology. The Foundation utilizes Lincos containers, a shipping container that includes multiple information technologies, as a tool to further sustainable development. To help the Foundation meet the global demand for Lincos, we found alternatives for power generation systems, connectivity methods, as well as chemical substance tests to be included in the environmental testing kits for the containers.
