Cold Chain Optimization 2021

The term cold chain comprises the processes and technologies that maintain products at cold temperatures, from harvest to retail end uses. Because agriculture is dependent on the cold chain, this Efficiency Vermont Research and Development (R&D) project has investigated two opportunities for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving energy and operational efficiency in that industry:

  1. Optimizing cold chain emissions in dairy farm bulk tank storage
  2. Reducing crop loss in diversified agriculture settings
