READ HOW OZONE FOR GRAIN & FEED DISINFECTION CAN SAVE LOSSES DURING THE STORAGE OF GRAINS!
Experts estimate that between 5-and 15% of the world’s production of cereal grains can be lost during the storage stage, and in some developing countries, this number can reach even 50%. Canada estimated the value of food waste at $31 billion per year. Insects, especially fungi and weevils, cause great losses in stored grains. Grains are particularly susceptible to stored-grain insects, fungi, and bacteria contamination. Currently, there are not many effective fumigants, partly because insects have become resistant to the active ingredients. Moreover, authorities have banned certain disinfectants due to their potential health and environmental risks. Furthermore, some species (such as grain weevils) develop inside grain kernels, which provide them with protection from chemical fumigants. Ozone is the best alternative for grain & feed disinfection
To mitigate the dangers of grain contamination, ozone has been used in a variety of agro-food applications. Several research studies have shown the efficacy of Ozone for grain & feed disinfection as a fumigant for the storage and preservation of food grains as well as a microbial disinfectant agent for microflora, bacterial, fungal, and mold contamination. Ozone kills every storage insect, with a remarkably low cost of operation.
Despite its effectiveness as a disinfectant, ozone does not leave a chemical residue on food or food contact surfaces because it decomposes quickly into nontoxic products.
Another advantage is that it can be generated on-demand on-site and does not require transportation or storage, unlike traditional chemical sanitizers. The use of ozone reduces the company’s environmental impact and costs without altering grain quality.
