A large steel manufacturer listed in India enters into a partnership with Vow to diversify its business and enter the lucrative spice industry, a pillar of Indian exports and economy. As part of the partnership, Vow ASA’s subsidiary ETIA will deliver a Safesteril® spice sterilisation unit valued at around EUR 0.55 million.

The unit has the capacity to treat 1.5 tonnes of product per hour, and will be used to sterilise chilli, turmeric, seeds, and grains. The spice processing factory will be up and running by the end of this year.

“This second contract won by ETIA this month, reminds us again of the versatility of our proprietary and patented Spirajoule technology and its relevance in a wide range of industrial applications,” said Henrik Badin, CEO of Vow ASA.

In Safesteril® systems, Vow’s patented Spirajoule electrical heating screw in combination with saturated steam removes pathogen and reduces the total amount of micro-organisms in the product. Since 2003, ETIA has delivered close to one hundred such systems to customers all over the world, representing an important after-market potential for the company.

India ranks as one of the biggest spice growers in the world and it is therefore an important market for ETIA’s Safesteril®. Several large Indian corporations are currently branching out into the spice industry.

Vow’s Spirajoule technology is a core component in a wide range of other products and systems from Vow, including Biogreen solutions which are used for valorisation of waste and production of CO2 neutral energy and biogenic (non-fossil) carbon.

“Our Biogreen process has many applications that are potentially highly relevant also for our client’s steel manufacturing business, and we are looking forward to exploring other areas of cooperation with them going forward,” said Badin.
