Cost- and Climate-Efficient Milk Cooling Using Slurry Ice and Natural CO2

Objective

KUBBI COOLING is a milk cooling technology for dairy farmers based on slurry ice as the active cooling ingredient and
natural CO2 as refrigerant. The main advantages for the end users (dairy farmers) are superior milk quality, higher raw milk
prices and significantly lower energy costs for milk cooling and storage. KUBBI COOLING enables unprecedented rapid
cooling of the fresh milk (30-60 sec. vs. 90-120 min.), being 120-180-fold faster than conventional milk cooling systems; this
in turn enables much better preservation of valuable proteins in the fresh milk and inhibits bacterial spoilage. The
advantages for the milk quality are decreased microorganism growth and slower rancidification (degradation) of the milk fat,
directly and positively impacting the taste and the smell and extending the shelf life by 1-3 days. The timing of KUBBI
COOLING technology is ideal since recent EU regulation encourages adoption of halogen-free refrigerant solutions which
have none to insignificant Ozone Depletion and Global Warming Potentials (ODP and GWP). By supporting Commissions’
efforts to phase out and ban conventional refrigerants, we bring forward a solution working 24/7 for farms with 50-350
milking cows, using milk machines or robotic milking systems (estimated target 30,000 farms in Northern Europe alone).
LogPh Ltd.’s ambition is to introduce resource-efficient and cost-effective solutions for healthy and high-quality food. KUBBI
COOLING is produced as a size-customable module (as opposed to several separate parts of the conventional milk cooling
systems) and comes in 4 different sizes with the highest capacity cooling up to 10,000 l milk per day. In a branch which has
an acute shortage of cooling technicians, KUBBI COOLING is designed to be easy to install and support, without the
demand for a specialized technician.
