Abstract From the farm to the store, food and drink including eggs and poultry products must be chilled -- and kept chilled, packaged and handled properly so it will be safe for consumers to buy. In addition, in the UK, there is a legal requirement, that the internal temperature of a warehouse for food and drink storage or processing must be kept at 8 C or below and food must be kept in a fridge or cool ventilated place. Refrigeration is a necessity for sustainable conservation and supply of food and drink products; however currently, fossil fuel consumption costs and greenhouse gas emissions are too high. The aim of the project is to develop a first-of-its-kind Ice Heat Pump for ice production for the food and drink applications sectors. The novel system uses environmental friendly working fluids (air/water mixture), that will result in 40% more efficient and cost-effective cool ventilated warehouses or/and refrigerated storage rooms.From the farm to the store, food and drink including eggs and poultry products must be chilled -- and kept chilled, packaged and handled properly so it will be safe for consumers to buy.
