In recent months Elea has expanded its premises and a new Analytical Center has been built up. Customers now have the opportunity to quickly analyze quality parameters and compare their standard product with the PEF treated product directly next door to the Technical Center.

Additionally, the Analytical Center provides sufficient space for further R&D activities. At the moment Elea is investigating new PEF applications in the field of hot-air- and freeze-drying. For these purposes Elea has aquired a hot air oven and a freeze dryer and first promising results have already been achieved with hot-air-drying of onions.
