New ultra-sensitive handheld gas sensor that can predict correct expiration dates within a few seconds. The measuring method has been developed in cooperation with universities in Denmark as well as partners in the food industry.
In Denmark more than 150,000 ton of fresh meat and fish end up as food waste each year. This correlates to 2,000,000 ton of CO2 or more than 5% of the collected Danish CO2 emissions. Obtaining correct expiration dates could reduce the Danish emission by as much as 2%.
