Ozo Innovations to support PepsiCo Labs in decarbonising its supply chain
Ozo Innovations is delighted to have been chosen as one of six startups to support PepsiCo in advancing its ambitious sustainability goals.  The pilot will see eloclearTM, a combined cleaner and disinfectant, trialled in PepsiCo’s Carregado manufacturing plant in Portugal.  The eloclear will be generated on site using an elocube and will demonstrate how eloclear deployment can significantly reduce water, energy and chemical consumption in their food cleaning and hygiene process. In its latest report released earlier this year,  The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stated an urgent need for ‘immediate and deep emissions reductions’ across all sectors, with improved energy efficiency highlighted as a critical factor if we are to achieve net zero by 2050. Ozo’s technology has the potential to help businesses like PepsiCo reduce their carbon footprint and revolutionise industrial scale cleaning and hygiene processes.  Produced solely from cold water and food grade salt using in-situ electrochemical generators, eloclear can simplify the food hygiene process reducing water consumption. Crucially, it is effective at an ambient temperature, removing the need for hot water, thereby reducing energy consumption.  In-situ manufacturing helps de-risk the chemical supply chain, reduces reliance on single use plastics and ensures that no non-biodegradable chemicals are released into the environment. Mark Poole, CEO of Ozo Innovations Ltd, said “There is an urgent need to respond to the climate change challenge that the world faces and the team at Ozo are passionate about delivering safe, effective, and innovative hygiene solutions that support the carbon net zero agenda without compromising food safety.  We are proud to be partnering with PepsiCo and are excited to be working with the team in Portugal to pilot the sustainability benefits that deploying eloclear can successfully deliver and we hope it will set the standard for sustainable cleaning practices globally.” Ozo Innovations aligns itself with four of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals – Goal 2: Zero hunger, Goal 3: Good health and wellbeing, Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation and Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production.
