Carbon Free Food Delivery Systems
Transportation of humans and goods accounts for almost a quarter of world carbon emissions with freight transport contributing about 5.5%. Within this, road transport is one of the largest emissions generators and food transportation is one of the largest contributors by product category. Renewable energy solutions for the transportation of food must address such issues as, time constraints to avoid spoilage, concerns about contamination, and fragility of the products.
Ten Rivers Food Web is working with local & international firms as well as electrical engineers & physicists to accelerate the adoption of processes and technologies that use electrical energy generated by renewable sources - solar, wind and water - to convert & store that energy in order to fuel food delivery trucks of all sizes. Working with your support we can bring about a renewable energy based economy. Together all of us could celebrate the rebirth of humans interacting in balance and alignment with the natural world.
Using the production of hydrogen to store renewable energy overcapacity for seconds, minutes, weeks or months provides the opportunity to move to a 100% green energy supply and fuel options not based on oil or gas.
