National food chain research centre to open its doors at Brunel on July 1st

Brunel University’s Industry Day will see unveiling of refrigeration research facility as part of national push to improve energy efficiency

The National Centre for Sustainable Energy Use in Food Chains (CSEF’s) is to hold an Industry Day at which it will launch the Centre’s new facilities at Brunel University on July 1st. Interested parties are invited to register for the free event.

As well a tour of the new facilities, led by research head Prof Savvas Tassou, the event will report on research priorities and funding opportunities from the Research Councils and Innovate UK, along with a discussion of the challenges and progress on carbon emission reduction by the food manufacturing sector. The CSEF also promise to provide examples of ‘fruitful collaboration between the Centre and industry and to display the wide range of projects currently under way. The aim is to report outcomes and increase further engagement and collaboration with our key stakeholders.’

Presentations will be given by a range of speakers from the research and food industry communities, including the Food and Drink Federation, the Research Council UK and Professor Tassou of the CSEF.

CSEF is funded by the Research Councils UK and has been established to contribute to the national effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 per cent compared to 1990 levels by 2050. CSEF, which is led by Brunel University, in partnership with the Universities of Manchester and Birmingham, investigates and develops innovative approaches and technologies to effect substantial energy demand reductions in food chains.  Central to the project is working with industry partners to explore and evaluate solutions that enable energy and cost savings to be made.
