Sanovo acquires SonoSteam
SonoSteam's technology is a combined application of steam and ultrasounddelivered from specially designed nozzles, which can provide efficient chemical-free microbial decontamination, designed for food and non-food surfaces.
Thetechnology applies patented nozzles that produce the combined effect from steam-ultrasound simultaneously. A specially constructed treatment chamber that enhances the SonoSteam disinfection system also has wider use within the food industry includingmeat,eggs, and dairy products as well as non-food products such as conveyors, food boxes, trays, trolleys, crates and cutting knives etc.
SonoSteam's technology has been tested and used industrially in various food industries with "very satisfactory" microbial decontamination results. The technology isenvironmentally-friendly and does not destroy the properties in food and non-food products.
Sanovo acquires all assets, patents, trademarks, name rights, production premises and five members of the technical staff related to the SonoSteam activity and will in the future be a part of SANOVOBIOSECURITY A/S with the current division director, Niels Krebs fromSonoSteam, continuing as president.
Michael Midskov, CEO of SANOVO TECHNOLOGY GROUP, says,"We are proud of the acquisition of SonoSteam, which will allow us to offer technical environmental and friendly solutions for the removal and reduction of bacteria on all eggs, table eggs, hatchery eggs, and other food products. With SonoSteam, it is also possible to effectively remove and reduce bacteria on washed plastic trays, pallets, shims, and conveyer belts in the egg industry, as well as in other industries where sterilisation and bacteria removal is needed, which is in line with our other business areas outside the egg industry."
