Hi, We are planning to disrupt the £53 bn pasteurisation and liquid sterilisation industry by providing an alternative to thermal pasteurisation. SteriFibre units use UVC LEDs which will save 95% of the energy used in pasteurisation and make the dairy producer more profitable. It will also save energy use on the planet. Currently pasteurisation in EU27 uses the energy of 850,000 households' annual consumption. After SteriFibre this will be 42,500 households' annual energy consumption. SteriFibre will also make clean water available to 750 million people in SE Asia. It will provide economic development for 75 million Indian dairy farmers to sell fresh milk. Currently, they cannot as they do not have access to water and electricity required for current thermal pasteurisation methods. We have a patent and need £840 k to get through the next 18 months.
