Emission reduction

Environmental relief through CleanSmoke

CleanSmoke treated foods impress with a much better life cycle assessment (LCA). For example, smoking with primary smoke condensate produces up to 80 percent less CO emissions than conventional smoking. And because there is no open fire or ember involved in CleanSmoke, no emissions such as nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) are released. Moreover, about 40 metric tons less cleaning chemicals would flow into the sewage every year, if just the meat in Germany were smoked with CleanSmoke, and over 550 million kWh of energy would be saved each year.

Resource protection

Resources are preserved – because less is more

Not only is less wood needed for the production of primary smoke condensate than for conventional smoking methods, but more importantly, no additional trees need to be chopped at all because only sawdust from the woodworking industry is used. The potential for resource conservation in smoking technology can be illustrated even more clearly with a few more figures on water consumption: With CleanSmoke, approximately 830,000 m3 of water could be saved in Germany alone – as much as the entire population of the German city Kiel drinks in one year.

Economic efficiency

Saves resources and money

CleanSmoke is also cheaper to produce than the conventional smoking process.
