Refrigeration systems for food processing

Because of world population growth, it is estimated that we must produce 70 % more food on the planet by 2050. In addition, it is necessary that we reduce greenhouse gas emissions dramatically. In this picture, it is important to preserve and utilize all the food being produced. One of the key elements is to gain control of the temperature immediately after harvest and capture, through processing and all the way to the end user. SINTEF Fisheries and Aquaculture is analysing, simulating, measuring and improving refrigeration systems to increase the benefit, increase product quality, reduce the negative impact on the climate, and to provide our customers with better profitability.
