LINCOLNSHIRE, U.K. — A collaborative international research project will investigate best practice guidelines for new advanced technologies for food freezing and chilling, according to a press release.
Led by Air Products and the Grimby Institute, the research program will provide a strategic review of the principles and practices of chilling and freezing food to establish best practice guidelines.
In addition to considering the potential of cryogenic freezing technologies, the research project aims to explore the role of electromagnets in advanced freezing applications.
In particular, the Cells Alive System ― an award-winning electromagnetic freezing system from Japan ― will be investigated as part of the research activity.
“This is an exciting research project that will establish guidelines that can be followed by food processors around the world at the same time as helping to realize the potential of emerging technologies in the area of food freezing and chilling,” said Jon Trembley, technology manager for cryogenic applications at Air Products.
