Energy efficient food preservation technology
The essence of technology
What is the essence of nanoPEF-process? Liquid flows between two plane electrodes under the uniform pulsed electric field which causes death of the vegetative spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms due to the phenomenon known as “electroporation” of cell membranes. In turn, the nutrients essential for human health such as vitamins, minerals, lipids and proteins are not affected.
Our approach is based on the fact that the bio load reduction rate increases in proportion with electric field intensity. We developed a break-through technology for food preservation using the electric fields of high intensity in nanosecond range which fulfills the industry standards of product safety, reduce processing temperature and minimize quality losses for heat-sensitive products.
