Elea Industry Tour – Taste the PEF
Thursday, 15 October 2020, 14:00-15:00 (CET Time)
Virtual from Quakenbrück, Germany
Pulsed Electric Fields (PEF) treatment changing food processes: Impact on capacities, efficiency, quality, waste management and sustainability. Industry tour will take through machinery construction, application trials and will let you taste the PEF samples! It is free, but additional registration is required.
The effects of Pulsed Electric Fields (PEF) technology on various types of food products are well studied in literature and several commercial exploitations have been achieved. An increased extraction yield, better cutting properties and reduction of microbial concentration in liquid food products are examples for commercially viable applications. The technology users have evaluated PEF as a powerful tool to improve raw material processing and to maintain constant product quality. The process impact on process capacity and yield but also, energy and water saving, and waste management have been characterized in some applications as well. During the workshop the impact of PEF on food processing with a focus on sustainability effects will be discussed and practically demonstrated and further potential be identified in expert discussions.
