What to expect from Elea

Elea PEF – new potential for food processing.

Elea is the world´s leading supplier of Pulsed Electric Fields (PEF) systems for the food and beverage industry. The technique is based on electroporation, a non-thermal effect creating pores in cell membranes. With its low energy and time requirements, PEF is the ideal processing solution for fruit and vegetable processing, beverages and drinks.

During the DIL Technology Day, our PEF experts will be available to discuss PEF options for shelf-life extension or texture modification and energy and cost savings. Product samples made with PEF will be available for tasting. On both days, we will offer a company tour to the Elea facilities next door.

Our custom-built pilot hall here in Quakenbrück is fully equipped with state-of-the-art facilities to emulate most production processes. Here is where we test PEF efficacy, jointly explore and extend our knowledge bank, cross-fertilise ideas and share experiences across product sectors.

In a live demonstration with our PEFPilot Dual system, our turn-key solution for both testing and processing with Pulsed Electric Field, we will show you the PEF real-life effect and you can discover, what Elea PEF can do to add value to your business.

 “I was impressed by the DIL Technology Day – an excellent platform for networking and dialogue for Elea as a technology provider. The discussions about common challenges were particularly valuable. An ideal place to initiate joint projects. We will be back in 2024″
