Sources Alma is moving towards zero chemistry
In 1982, Sources Alma adopted aseptic packaging for several of its still drinks. It was then the first company in France to go that far in terms of safety. The company asked Serac, which was already specializing in aseptic packaging, to design its new lines.
40 years later, Sources Alma still relies on Serac to innovate. It has equipped one of its lines with a BluStream® cap sterilization module.
What is BluStream® sterilization?
BluStream® is a dry, physical sterilization treatment, performed at room temperature without chemicals. It uses electron beams to destroy micro-organisms. BluStream® is a breakthrough innovation in the food packaging market which has required over ten years of research. This treatment has already won several awards from the industry, amongst which is an « “Oscar de l’emballage” » in 2019.
Safer for the consumer, the operator, and the environment, BluStream® meets the new requirements of beverage manufacturers. It has been used in industrial production at Sources Alma since the beginning
“ BluStream® opens the way to chemical-free treatments in aseptic packaging. It is a good way to appropriate a major change in technology which can only become an imperative for aseptic packaging in the medium term. “
