Food refrigeration - improving energy efficiency of operations

In June 2006, a UK Government Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (defra) funded project to “identify, develop and stimulate the development and application of more energy efficient refrigeration technologies and business practices for use throughout the food chain whilst not compromising food safety and quality” started. The project is a collaboration between 4 top University research groups, an industrial steering group and hundreds of stakeholders from the food and refrigeration industries. This paper brings together, for the first time, the important current findings of this project.

The research programme has concentrated on three topics: mapping of energy use; identifying new technologies andfeasibility studies on promising technologies.

The paper explores the findings.
