We propose the use of Nano and micro-tubular cellulose, a material of negligible cost, as filter to remove microorganisms from liquid foods at low and room temperatures (cold pasteurization process). The process is applied in continuous mode.
Primary Application Area: Foods & Agriculture
Technology Development Status: Ready to Market
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 8
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: The existing technology to remove microorganisms involves use of porous membranes. These materials must be frequently substituted. Due to the high cost, small industries cannot afford them. Nano and micro-tubular cellulose is a low-cost material. The process is continuous and the filter can be easily regenerated using hot water.
