• Using digital solutions to reduce food waste by tracking and predicting transport conditions

    2 monthes ago - By Phys

    On the way from the place of production to the consumer's plate, about one third of all food worldwide spoils. One reason is unfavorable storage conditions along production and supply chains, including suboptimal storage at home. Researchers at Empa's Biomimetical Membranes and Textiles laboratory in St. Gallen have been working for some time on digital solutions that could reduce this food waste. Now, together with researchers from the University of Bern and South Africa's Stellenbosch University, the team has developed digital twins of citrus fruits and published the results in the...
