Improving food production, packaging and waste
by：Taian Lamination Film
As consumers drive major changes in the food manufacturing industry, seeking better environmental protection and greener production processes, the industry has become more proactive in reforming its approach.
GEA is a global leader in technology supply in the food industry and has been addressing these issues from multiple perspectives.
The company\'s portfolio includes food processing and packaging machinery, refrigeration solutions, waste management and services to support global and local customers.
GEA\'s technology is an integral part of the food industry, providing food manufacturers with practical solutions for product handling, cooling, heating and management and even elimination of waste.
Historically, the main purpose of food packaging is to protect its contents and ensure safe food consumption.
The goal now is also to reduce the amount of packaging, especially plastic, while maintaining packaging integrity and food quality.
GEA has an unparalleled portfolio of packaging solutions that minimize waste but maximize protection and quality.
Products such as the newly launched GEA PowerPak and SmartPacker honor their commitments, including thinner films, better inspection processes, and compatibility with sustainable packaging materials.

The refrigeration industry is a huge consumer of energy: 30 pc power generated in the UK is estimated to drive the refrigeration process.
In a food storage environment, energy use up to 90 PCs is used for refrigeration.
Most of the heat generated as a by-product
Products that used to waste cooling.
GEA is now helping the food industry to maximize its environmental certification-reduce carbon dioxide emissions-and minimize energy use, not only by restoring the use of natural refrigerants such as ammonia, it also uses heat pump technology.
The heat pump is a more eco-friendly system.
A more friendly and profitable solution than traditional heating methods.
Industrial, local authorities and homeowners have been using them for years to heat applications-food plants are now starting to see the huge financial and environmental benefits of using heat pumps in the production process, especially those that need to be heated during preparation and subsequent cooling.
GEA installed heat pumps for many giants in the food industry, helping companies reduce operating costs and carbon dioxide emissions from day one and ultimately achieve sustainable development goals.
Every year, food waste from British families and industries is increasing.
Handling food waste usually means sending it to a landfill if it could have been avoided.
This process can reduce storage and treatment costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, extract nutrients, and potentially reuse as fertilizer on land. How?
Separated by the centrifuge process, the solid and liquid parts can be managed separately.
The initial separation of raw food waste reduces storage space and transportation costs, while increasing the value of potential products for renewable resources such as animal feed or anaerobic digestion.
Concentrated solids and nutrients are easier to handle and can be further processed, for example in anaerobic digestion (AD)
Production of natural gas per ton has increased significantly. The low-
The solid liquid part is treated on site for discharge or reuse.
There are many benefits to the AD process, but after primary separation, the resulting waste exists in the form of digestion.
Since the decomposition and re-processing of solids and other blends in liquor can be a problem, this is still more than 90 pc liquids.
By further separation using an efficient centrifuge, the nutritional value in the solid or liquid part can be controlled.
Mainly with solids and nitrogen (N)
Mainly soluble, the flexibility of the machine allows the control of nutrients.
This means the concentration of nutrients in solid form, which can be easily stored or transported to areas of nutrient deficiency further away.
If the requirements are met, the liquid fraction can be used as an organic fertilizer to spread to the farmland at a higher volume, while meeting the consent of the local nitrogen and phosphorus legislation, reducing the environmental impact.
As there is no settling solid, storage in tanks or lagoons is also made easier.
All this gives farmers more room in the transmission schedule to apply the necessary nutrients when the crop is most needed.
