Reduced energy storage - to minimise the carbon footprint associated with storage of GB potato crops
At the time the work was comissioned, a number of potato carbon footprints had been produced. In some cases storage had been highlighted as the biggest single contributor. However, the validity of these assessments was not clear and they were often contradictory. Therefore, there was a need for an independent assessment of the publically available carbon footprints to determine their validity and, if necessary, recommend how they might be improved.

About this project
To reduce the energy cost and therefore the carbon footprint, and to assess the validity of existing potato storage carbon footprints and, if necessary recommend how they might be improved.
