Real-time “interactive storage” quality control in fresh agro products (QCAP)

Cranfield University

A prototype trace gas sensor has been developed by the QCAP project partners and is about to be installed at Cranfield University’s cold storage facilities for further testing.

The sensor is able to monitor in real-time gasses emitted by fresh agricultural products and give a warning when spoilage is imminent.

The implementation of the sensor in commercial storage facilities will help reduce waste and quality losses in crops such as potatoes, onions and apples that tend to spend several months in storage in order to ensure year-round supply.
