Usine agro du futur

In 2021, CFIA welcomes transition(s)

Welcome to the era of transitions - environmental, digital, and in the energy, HR, and food sectors... Explore skill adaptation, automation, and new manufacturing processes at the Agro du Futur dedicated space.

More than forty companies and technical centres are taking part to offer visitors a new set of innovative demonstrators at the heart of "The Factory in transition(s)", co-piloted by Bretagne Développement Innovation & Valorial.

Innovations in the three areas

The showroom

A food-processing production line in operation

Faced with the requirements and needs of consumers, increasingly unpredictable markets, and the challenge of feeding everyone on the planet, the food-processing sector must constantly adapt and develop its production lines to remain competitive.

This is the backdrop for Usine Agro du Futur’s "transitional" production line.

This will cover 5 operational levels that are relevant to the manufacturing sector. The event was created by 22 manufacturing partners from western France, mostly from Brittany.

Operators will equip themselves with the elements necessary for the proper functioning of a factory in times of crisis.

Solution: HPV, Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour: an innovative technology for the decontamination of food products, packaging, and work environments

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a strong oxidant. A generator vaporises it in compressed air to enable it to be more effectively disseminated and maximise its oxidizing effect. This technology can be used for the decontamination of work surfaces (workshops, insulators), dry and dehydrated products (flakes, powders, spices, cereals, nuts, etc.), aseptic packaging, process equipment, and storage areas after an intake of fruits and vegetables.

The advantages of a non-thermic solution:

  • A process that does not consume water: energy savings and sustainability,
  • Antimicrobial efficiency on plant cells and spores: microbiological safety of products and work environments,
  • A familiar chemical agent that is simple to handle and readily available,
  • User-friendly operating equipment: H2O2 dosage by mass and addition of compressed air.
