Project Title: An investigation into how the food distribution industry can be more sustainable

Project Description

My project aimed to investigate how the food distribution industry can be made more sustainable. By investigating existing and emerging technologies it was found that the food distribution industry’s reliance on fossil fuels is what’s is preventing it from becoming sustainable. It was found that despite the positive perception of hydrogen fuel cells, it is still not a viable solution as a fuel source for HGVs due to its high cost and unsustainable methods of harvesting hydrogen. It was found that battery electric vehicles provide the best alternative fuel when cost and CO2 per mile is taken into consideration.
