Therma° CEO Manik Suri on Reducing Emissions and Food Waste with Smarter Refrigeration
In a recent podcast episode on Care More. Be Better, Manik Suri, CEO and Founder of Therma° discussed how technology could help address global warming and climate change by optimizing energy consumption and reducing food waste.
Some key points from the discussion:
- Refrigeration accounts for 7% of annual global emissions due to inefficient technology and high energy consumption. Therma° seeks to optimize refrigeration systems through sensors, data analytics, and IoT.
- By making "dumb" refrigeration assets "smarter," Therma° provides real-time visibility into equipment performance. This allows businesses to reduce energy waste, cut costs, and lower their carbon footprint.
- Food waste is another major issue, with 40% of food wasted globally. Smarter refrigeration improves food freshness and reduces waste.
Therma°'s technology is deployed across restaurants, retailers, distributors, and manufacturers worldwide, with leading brands such as McDonald's, Starbucks, NOW Foods, 7-Eleven, and Marriott Hotels among their clients.
