Reinventing pasteurization - Our unique cold pasteurization solutions ensures higher uptime, a vast energy reduction of 90% and a water reduction of 60%, thus greatly lowering your operational cost meanwhile ensuring a sustainable production. Our patented cold pasteurization technology has the potential to be used in many parts of the food processing industry. Cold pasteurization has several advantages, some of which include: 1. Reduced energy consumption by more than 90% compared to conventional pasteurization. 2. Only requiring electricity, and can, therefore, be powered by renewable energy sources rather than fossil fuels. 3. Increased production up-time, as less cleaning is required, thereby providing greater efficiency. 4. Easy implementation anywhere, as only an electrical connection is needed, as opposed to complex supporting infrastructure. This means that cold pasteurization can become available in developing countries, thereby increasing public health and product shelf life. 5. A much gentler treatment, as the energy added by UV-light in comparison to heating, is a factor of 1:272. This gentle treatment means that the natural qualities of the product are preserved, and remain almost unchanged. 6. No use of water during production as no stream, ice water, and regenerative water is required for a cold pasteurization system to operate. 7. A high bacterial kill rate which is equivalent to conventional pasteurization. These unique selling points are in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and can directly contribute towards achieving SDG nr. 6,7 & 9, and indirectly even more goals would be influenced. At Lyras, we value the environment and work towards a sustainable future. Our vision is to become the leading supplier of innovative, green tech solutions, by driving the change for sustainable food processing.
