Optimizing Production and Logistic Resources in the Time-critical Bio Production Industries in Europe

Project description

Using AI and data technologies for the bio-product industry

Climate change has affected many sectors, including the bioproduction industries and agriculture. Expectations are high. There is a growing need for solutions that would help these sectors deal with the current challenges and thrive. The EU-funded CLARUS project introduces such an innovative solution. Specifically, it will connect the sustainable paradigm of the food industry with artificial intelligence technology, offering these sectors the benefit of better communication, optimisation, automation, better control and efficiency. To do this, the project will assist and showcase several pilots that aim to reduce energy and water consumption using artificial intelligence and data technologies.


The CLARUS project aims to connect the Sustainable Paradigm in the food industry and AI-based applications, with the goal of developing a platform with high communications and processing capabilities, as well as the use of standardized open protocols and data models that will allow resource consumption assessment and traceability for food industry processes.
The project will be submitted under the call HE-CL4-DIGITAL-EMERGING-01-09: AI, Data and Robotics for the Green Deal and will target the non-robotic outcome. Currently, two pilots have been selected for validating the CLARUS solution. The first pilot focuses on the production of the frozen food, where energy and water consumption can be reduced using AI and data technologies. The other pilot focuses on the meat by-product production where the aim is to reduce the energy and maintain the quality of the products by optimizing the logistics of the by-products arrival. CLARUS ambitions include not only contributing to resource and logistic optimization methods through the two pilot solutions, but also making a more general contribution through the creation of a Green Deal Index (GDI).
