Improving Cold Chain Energy Efficiency

Project description

Improving the energy efficiency of the EU food cold chain

The refrigeration of food during transport, processing and storage makes energy consumption in the supply chain high. The overall aim of the EU-funded ICCEE project is to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from the European food cold storage sector through application of energy-efficient equipment choices in line with European policy. The project will help cold store operators overcome reservations to the uptake of new technologies. Through a combination of knowledge-based information packages and education programmes, the team will work with cold store operators to help them make informed decisions on equipment and identify cost-efficient options for their businesses. Project outcomes will also offer policy makers a solid foundation for sector-specific policy.
