The first effective, remotely-controlled, and environmentally-friendly in-built food-transport sanitisation system

Project description

A new way to wash food transport vehicles

Disinfection of vehicles between loadings in the transport of perishable foodstuffs is crucial for preventing bacterial growth and cross-contamination across the food chain. Existing sanitisation methods are inefficient, responsible for about 1 % of food wastage annually and 25.4 % of road-freight vehicles empty travel after unloading their freight. Since 2002, D-Tech provides D-San mist systems and disinfectants for the meat and fish processing industry. The EU-funded D TRUCK project proposes the first mist sanitisation system built-in to food transport vehicles, allowing automated disinfection immediately after the unloading of the foodstuffs. The system provides disinfection out of the depot, which is 95-97 % more effective, 90 % faster, 95 % less chemical intensive, 90-95 % less water intensive, and allows the immediate reloading of foodstuffs, eliminating empty travels.
