Vow ASA subsidiary ETIA Ecotechnologies has received orders for a total of five Safesteril food safety systems in the second quarter. The combined value of these orders is EUR 2.7 million.
ETIA designs and provides Safesteril plants for processing of dehydrated products in the food industry, pharmacy and petfood sectors. The success of Safesteril in the market is a reminder of the versatility of Vow and ETIA’s proprietary and patented Spirajoule pyrolysis technology and its relevance in a wide range of industrial applications.
The systems ordered in the second quarter will be used to treat spices and dehydrated vegetables, and wheat flour respectively, thereby ensuring food safety and contributing to good health and well-being as defined in the UN Sustainability Goals. According to the World Health Organization an estimated 600 million - almost 1 in 10 people in the world - fall ill after eating contaminated food every year.
“The Safesteril technology has become increasingly relevant also because it allows our customers to decarbonise their thermal processes. One particularly relevant feature in this respect is the option to operate our system entirely without the use of fossil gas,” said Henrik Badin, CEO of Vow ASA.
The five Safesteril contracts mentioned above are booked as order intake in the second quarter in Vow’s Landbased segment.
