New Studies Further Demonstrate Efficacy Of Dow AOS Certified Technology For Pathogen Control In Food Processing Environments

Dow Microbial Control, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW) today released new data from several studies that further demonstrate the efficacy of Dow Advanced Oxidation System (AOS) Certified Whole Room Sanitization (WRS) technology for food processing and packaging environments.

AOS Certified WRS is a sustainable sanitization solution capable of reducing and controlling pathogens on surfaces and in the air. The system creates ozone vapor on demand using ambient air and water, eliminating the need to ship and store chemicals. AOS Certified WRS fills the atmosphere with a non-condensing ozone humidity that infiltrates even difficult-to-reach areas that conventional sanitation methods often miss.

Dow Microbial Control unveiled AOS Certified WRS roughly one year ago, at the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) Annual Meeting in Charlotte, N.C. Since that time, the company has commercialized the technology and succeeded in providing effective microbial control in a number of food processing environments.

In addition, three recent studies have validated AOS Certified WRS’ ability to effectively control harmful pathogens, including Listeria, E. coli and Lactobacillus. Findings include:
  • During a field trial in a smoked fish packaging facility, AOS Certified WRS treatments reduced the rate of Listeria positives on environmental surfaces from 12 percent to 0.4 percent over an 11-week period.
  • AOS Certified WRS reduced Lactobacillus and E. coli inoculated on agar plates during two separate laboratory studies. In both cases, results were measured after a single whole room ozone treatment.

“AOS Certified WRS fills a gap that many food manufacturers face today as they seek to reduce their risk of contamination and adhere to increasingly stringent regulatory requirements,” said Phil Cassidy, Technical Director at Dawnfresh Seafoods, one of the U.K.’s largest producers of fish and seafood. “Dow's system goes deep into every corner of a facility, even penetrating drains and hidden spaces in equipment. During a recent trial at one of our seafood processing locations, we experienced remarkable results using Dow’s ozone treatments as a supplement to our traditional sanitization methods.”
