Novazone, which provides clean technol-ogy solutions for food and water, including advanced ozone-based applications, recently announced that Kool Kountry Cold Storage has deployed the company’s ozone-based cold storage solution to reduce decay and control ripening on a variety of fresh produce, including tree fruit, grapes and pears. Novazone’s cold storage solution delivers consistent and precise concentrations of ozone gas, a form of electrified oxygen, which allows Kool Kountry to effectively kill and control the spread of micro-organisms such as mold and bacteria in the air and on exposed surfaces. In this environment, ozone is also effective in naturally controlling the ripening process by efficiently converting ethylene into carbon dioxide and water vapour. Regulating the ripening process in this manner ensures longer storage and shelf life, while maintaining overall better fruit quality, thus delivering the best product to consumers globally. Consumers around the world are demanding fresher and safer consumable food and water products. Novazone couples applied food science with patented ozone technologies to provide an environmentally friendly means of reducing water and airborne pathogens without the use of harmful chemicals, making food and water fresh and safe naturally. The company incorporates an array of patented technologies into complete, automated systems with unsurpassed reliability and cost-effective operations.
