Creates antimicrobial solutions to ensure food safety
Halomine offers anti-microbial products to ensure the safety of processed foods. The USDA estimates that each year, in the United States, about 9 million illnesses, 50,000 hospitalizations, and 2,300 deaths result from food borne diseases and the total economic loss is $15.6 billion per year. Almost half of all food recalls are caused by microbiological contamination. Harmful microbes can grow and proliferate in small scratches in the surfaces of food processing equipment. Halomine offers an antimicrobial, rechargeable coating for food processing equipment that provides continuous protection from microbial attack.
