The project aims at the development of an efficient harvesting of sea buckthorn berries. It will be based on a process that flash freezes the fruit branches processed like a bulk product cost efficiently in a compact, continuous working freezer tower. For cooling a novel modified compression chiller is to be developed, which is faces the high requirements of the produce in terms of flexible and fast controlling Sea buckthorn berries are a valuable raw material for the food and cosmetics industries. Powerful mechanized harvesting methods are required for the commercial cultivation. The fruit-laden branches have to be mechanically harvested. The berries are frozen and then separated by means of special shaker devices. The harvest in Germany predominantly is partly mechanized.
