1. Dynamically predicted shelf-life service : Exploring and evaluating a potential sustainable food supply chain innovation
Sammanfattning : Roughly one third of all the food produced worldwide goes to waste. The global goals for sustainable development set by the United Nations in 2015 call for a 50% reduction of food waste per capita by 2030. We thus face several major food waste challenges that need academic and practical attention. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Food packaging should ensure the safety and quality of food, minimize spoilage and provide an easy way of storing and handling it. Barrier coatings are generally used to meet the demands placed on fibre-based food packages, as these have the ability to regulate the amount of gases that can enter them. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In the present work a dynamic model library of components for process lines was developed. The analysis addressed characteristic aspects of liquid food process lines, and new models were developed for fluid transitions, dispersion, mixing zones and first-order chemical reactions in pipes and heat exchangers.

Sammanfattning : This thesis explores possible future forms of a sustainable food supply system from an energy aspect. Particular attention is devoted to local food supply as a means to reduce energy use for transport. The thesis consists of a covering essay and three studies: one futures study of the entire food supply system and two case studies of local farming. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : With an increasing share of intermittent renewable energy sources in the electrical grid, the need for adapting the demand to the available supply of electricity becomes increasingly important. Within this thesis, the demand response capacity by supermarket refrigeration systems are investigated and methods for enabling it is developed. LÄS MER
