SINCE 2004, CLARANOR HAS BEEN PROVIDING PULSED LIGHT STERILIZATION SOLUTIONS
THAT CONVERGE ECOLOGY AND ECONOMY
The Pulsed light value proposition
Extensive independent research and efficacy testing have demonstrated that pulsed light sterilization offers an alternative to chemical disinfection for the food and biological industries.
To industrialize its process, Claranor has focused on the disinfection of packaging for beverages and dairy products.
Claranor in the food industry
Chosen today by the main equipment manufacturers, Claranor decontamination equipment is now present in the largestindustrial groups.
In 2021, 500 packaging sterilization machines are running worldwide in the beverage, dairy, plant-based, and sauces industries.
Since 2018 in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry
Claranor has developed recognized expertise:
- In packaging microbiology (inoculation, decontamination tests)
- In industrialization (adaptation of a machine to a production line to meet a decontamination need).
These capabilities are now attracting pharmaceutical and cosmetics manufacturers. From 2019, decontamination applications developed in these sectors, including syringe trays, single-dose vials, and decontamination tunnels, are in commercial production.
And since 2020 in the reuse and bulk packaging industry
Consumers are now looking for more sustainable packaging solutions. To support manufacturers, supermarkets, and independent shops in the reuse process, Claranor has been designing decontamination solutions for reusable packaging since 2020. Claranor is thus part of the Zero Waste movement with two innovative packaging sterilization modules, Ste’Refill® Bottle and Ste’Refill® Tray.
