Demonstrating a High Efficiency Raisin Dryer at the Sun-Maid Raisins Facility
This project will replace an existing dryer with a highly efficient dryer thereby reducing GHG emissions at a raisin processing facility
This project will design, install, and operate a state-of-the-art, highly efficient raisin dryer at the Recipient's raisin production facility. The recipient will integrate the system into the food production operation, demonstrating the potential to decrease energy use in food drying processes. By implementing this technology at a large food processing facility, this project will demonstrate the potential for optimized drying processes to reduce GHG emissions, overall energy consumption, and operating costs at similar food processing facilities.
The project is expected to reduce GHG emissions by approximately 500 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year and nitrogen oxide emissions by approximately 1.5 tons per year.
