Discipline: Professional Concept

Daikin, the world's leading air conditioning manufacturer, has leveraged its own controlled atmosphere technology to create Air Container, a container that maintains optimal atmospheric conditions for transporting fruits and vegetables. Air Container inhibits the respiration of fruits and vegetables by filling their inner spaces with nitrogen collected from the atmosphere. This process controls the ripening process and slows it down, making it possible to store fruits and vegetables for a longer period of time and reduce unnecessary food waste.
