Good-quality fruit is often suitable to store for several months. Storage costs and quality retention are both important factors in long-term storage.
Big data and alternative energy
In the video below, Eelke Westra, scientist in postharvest technology at Wageningen Food & Biobased Research, answers Jacco Vooijs's question: Can I achieve the same quality with less storage costs? The ZoCool project investigates how refrigeration plants can be used more efficiently without loss of quality. In addition, a big-data approach helps find out the causes of differences in energy consumption between cooling locations.
