Radiative cooling for storage of vegetables in the tropics

Conference:

Abstract

Radiative cooling in combination with packed bed cooling tower may be applicable in establishing low cost and environmentally friendly pre-cooling and temporary storage facility in vegetable growing areas in Indonesia. To test the possibility of such a system, an experiment using a prototype storage system had been conducted in Candikuning village in Bali, Indonesia. From this test it was recorded that the attainable storage temperature was between 18 and 22{sup o}C. Under this environment tomatoes and potatoes, packed with stretch film could be stored respectively, for 16 days with weight loss of 1.7% and for 21 days with weight loss of 0.4%. After 4 days of storage, broccoli with 4 hours precooling, the recorded minimum weight loss was 4.9%. (author)
