A fast, cheap way to clean food containers
Thermal insulated containers used by food retailers to safely transport their products are cleaned at logistic centres and reused multiple times. Container cleaning is a critical step in food operations and poses challenges such as effectiveness, cost and environmental impact of the cleaning. The EU-funded OPTAINER project proposes the first automated modular cleaning station that can be perfectly integrated into the logistic centres of food retailers. The water-recycling system washes, rinses and dries food containers fast, at low cost, and with low energy and water consumption. OPTAINER ensures that perfectly cleaned and safe containers are used for the transportation of temperature-controlled foods to retail stores.
