ImpactAlpha, March 4 – Two of the most significant ways to cut greenhouse gases: reduce food waste and improve refrigeration. San Francisco-based Therma is tackling both with a refrigeration monitoring device that could “significantly reduce emissions across the $1 trillion global cold-chain,” the company says.
Its sensor is designed to minimize commercial food and industrial waste with alerts about equipment failure, power outages and human error.
Early users include fast food giants McDonald’s and Burger King, convenience store chain 7-Eleven and Wyndham Hotels.
Funders for Therma’s $10.2 million round include Active Impact Investments and Collaborative Fund.
