Objective
Objective 1. Design and optimize the proposed scaled-up supercooling device for the preservation of perishable foods such as fish. The task activities will include fabrication of a new high voltage AEF generator/electrode units, OMF module, and the development of the mathematical model of the supercooling device in terms of field distribution and thermodynamics.Objective 2. Test and validate the quality factors associated with the mid- and long-term supercooling process. The task activities will include validation of the newly designed and upscaled unit and test for freshness factors.Objective 3. Implement and validate the proposed supercooling technology for the model food supply chain. The task includes tests and reworks of the supercooling storage when exposed to adverse environmental factors such as temperature fluctuations and physical vibrations.
