Purpose and goal

The aim of the project is to develop, together with Oatly, a decision-making tool to support food producers. With a simple web interface, manufacturers will be able to work interactively and analyze how different production decisions affect climate impact in different parts of their production process. We will build a system that will make us understand the foods climate impact in a completely new way. It will revolutionize how companies choose to produce and what consumers choose to eat.

Expected results and effects

Expected results are to provide an interface for food producers to better understand their production processes, and to make informed decisions about how to make their production more climate efficient. This will make it clearer what effect it will have to choose, for example, raw materials of local origin or change modes of transport. In this way, the system will push towards more climate-efficient food production in Sweden.

Planned approach and implementation

The project will be conducted with three parties, CarbonCloud, Chalmers, and Oalty. Chalmers is responsible for a calculation model, CarbonCloud will design and develop an interface for manufacturers as well as obtain a verification model. Oatly will test the systems CarbonCloud develops to ensure relevancy and usability.
