CIFT to collaborate with Norway for fuel transition in seafood sector

The Kochi dependent ICAR-Central Institute of Fisheries Know-how (CIFT) has been awarded a job on Future Refrigeration in India for spearheading the gas changeover in seafood sector.

The job named ‘Indee+’ assumes importance particularly at a time when the demand for changeover from current higher carbon discharging gas factors to zero carbon emission is on the increase and with the hottest world wide norms are in favour of it.

It is an umbrella job masking many committed strategies supporting the Indian refrigeration and air conditioning sector in the changeover to cleaner and green systems. It is coordinated by Norwegian University of Science and Know-how (NTNU) and the Indian partners are CIFT, Kochi, IIT Chennai, BITS, Pilani, and IISc Bengaluru.

In the seafood sector, the job aims to advertise CO2 dependent refrigeration and heating techniques and stage out the current refrigerants with pure, thoroughly clean and protected refrigerants. This will as a result be the Indian fisheries sector’s commitment to acquiring web zero carbon emission by 2070 as pledged by the Key Minister at the twenty sixth Global Local climate Conference in Glasgow.

A two-working day workshop on “Future Refrigeration India” was held at CIFT which was addressed by the institute director Ravishankar CN.

The workshop highlighted the implication of climate adjust to the society and adaptation of scientific techniques and research to prevent world wide warming and ozone depletion. In the workshop, a sensitization system was also arranged for the stakeholders on the set up of carbon-dioxide dependent thoroughly clean refrigeration techniques with specific focus on cooling and heating requirements in seafood industries and fishing vessels.
