Enhanced Disinfection & Pesticide Removal From Fruits & Vegetables
This study will focus on the further development and optimization of a new method to deliver ozone into process waters employed for washing fruits and vegetables. The FDA has just approved the use of ozone to control pathogens in the food processing industry. Key objectives of this study include development of pilot rig consisting of O3 generation, delivery equipment, while studying overall enhancement of O3 transfer efficiency, reduction of BOD and COD levels. This pilot rig will also be taken to a produce washing plant for onsite demonstration and testing. CMS is well positioned to do so with the business relationships that we have established with industrial organizations with competence in large-scale gas and industrial membrane separations. A commercial product will be derived from the program by combining the CMS' competency in membrane based O3 delivery systems, and the manufacturing and marketing prowess of our industrial partners.
