A digital twin in the kitchen: Keeping fruit and veggies fresh with your cell phone
2.8 million tons of food per year are already being wasted before they land on Swiss dinner plates - and that doesn't have to be this way. Broken down on each and every one of us, this means that 20 kilos of fresh veggies, around 3.5 kilos of fresh fruit and over 8 kilos of exotic fruit and berries go straight into our trash bins. Empa researchers have now developed an app to prevent food waste. The app is based on a digital twin that allows predictions about the shelf life of food.
In our live stream, Empa researchers Kanaha Shoji and Jörg Schemminger demonstrate the app and, at the same time, dispel one or two kitchen myths. In the Innovation Room at Empa in St. Gallen, the audience will take a quiz. Streaming viewers can compete against our live audience. But beware! As budding chefs, our guests are experts in the field!
Join us for this virtual event on digitalization in the kitchen and the possibility of avoiding food waste with an app. We cordially invite all those of you for whom freshness and a sustainable approach to foodstuff are dear to their heart. The program will be hosted by Michael Hagmann, Head of Communications at Empa.
