MET Ozone ExpertsMET S.r.l., an Italian spin off company of TEBO S.p.a. Group, is pleased to announce that this year as well will attend Fruit Logistica in Berlin.
MET designs, manufactures and sells equipment generating ozone, an oxygen allotropic state, known for its disinfecting, sanitizing, and deodorizing abilities. It is an highly unstable gas, therefore it reverts to oxygen in function of temperature.
Its disinfectant action against fungi and bacteria is accomplished by oxidation of their cell membrane that becomes compromised and consequently making their multiplication impossible.
MET has gained experience to obtain an effective sanitization from bacteria, spores, molds, fungi, yeasts, ethylene and chemical residues of fruit and vegetable using ozone in cell fridge and in post-harvest, eliminating mold and spores formation.
This results in an improvement of the appearance and shelf life of fruit and vegetables treated with ozone, obtained by slowing down its aging process and degradation of the most common fungicides, bringing significant benefits to the health of operators and consumers.
Moreover, after two years of testing on different crops and in different productions, in collaboration with Viterbo University, MET has patented a generator of ozonated clouds destined to greenhouses in order to replace pesticides. The realization of the first system is in progress, and its use will allow an improvement not only in terms of quantity and health of products but also in working conditions compared to the current chemicals use.
We will illustrate our machines and the excellent results they produced also through collaborations with leading Italian and foreign companies for agricultural applications with ozone in post harvest, washing and cold storage.
