The Central Institute of Fisheries Technology (CIFT) here has been awarded a project on “Future Refrigeration India”, aimed at spearheading the fuel transition in the seafood sector.

The project named “INDEE+” is an umbrella project covering several dedicated schemes supporting the Indian refrigeration and air-conditioning sector in the transition towards cleaner and green technologies. This project is coordinated by Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and the Indian partners are CIFT Kochi; IIT Chennai; BITS Pilani; and IISc Bengaluru, according to an official communication.
