Trasformazione alimentare sostenibile tracciata con sensori nel vicino infrarosso 

In compliance with the guidelines and objectives of the 2030 Agenda, a sustainable "solar" dehydration process of fruit and vegetable products and fresh surpluses has been developed, now implemented to be able to independently monitor and track product quality in the various phases of process. The use of near infrared sensors and data processing carried out with a holistic approach for quality monitoring are developed within the Agridigit project - Agrofiliere sub-project - funded by the MiPAF. This digital system will provide the possibility of tracing the history of the product and its state of conservation thanks to the creation of comparative and easily interpretable graphics, which can be viewed in real time on mobile devices.
