Dairy processing is a complex business from production start to transportation of the finished product. The wastewater created from dairy production contains challenging waste streams that are expensive to dispose of. The resulting milk products require energy-intensive refrigerated storage systems and transportation vessels to reach retailers.
Porifera’s Dairy Industry Solution
Porifera’s processing technology produces a 4x milk concentrate, removing up to 75% of the water. By removing the water weight, the product can be transported and stored using less energy and at lower cost.
The milk concentrate can be rehydrated before distribution to stores or dispensed with bag-in-box systems to deliver a “fresh” milk product directly to the consumer. Alternatively, the milk concentrate can be used as a functional food with significant savings from processing efficiency improvements. Porifera’s technology delivers a higher quality product without the “cooked” flavor or browning from thermal processing.
