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 CO₂ 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.
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.
Saves resources and money
CleanSmoke is also cheaper to produce than the conventional smoking process.
