Integrated processes

We are working on some of the following integrated processes with multiple benefits or enhanced effects:

  • In-package atmospheric cold plasma process with modified atmospheric packaging
  • Cold plasma mist with cooling of fresh food products
  • Cooling/Drying of fresh food products with simultaneous decontamination 
  • Simultaneous drying and decontamination of food products by LED technology
