From the beginning of the millennium, the research was accelerated with further development of whistles and solutions for minimal processing, along with a number of tests of other applications.
Late 2001, it was clear that the technology was suitable for decontamination of sensitive surfaces such as food products, and FORCE Technology filed a patent application. In 2005, FORCE Technology launched the technology and received the “Innovation Award” at Foodtech Scandinavia, Northern Europe’s largest fair for food products and pharmatech.
January 2006, a new division in FORCE Technology was established with the sole purpose of further development of the SonoSteam technology, in order to provide documentation and commercialize.
The SonoSteam technology is now patented or patent applied for in more than 50 countries. Cooperation is ongoing with both national and international industries, universities, researchers and trade organizations.
