US - EAU Technologies has received a poultry processing patent for its Empowered WaterTM.

EAU Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of electrolysed water, has announced its receipt of Patent #US7,588,488, from the United States Patent Office, to use Empowered Water Primacide Solutions for poultry processing.

Empowered Water for poultry processing is produced by EAU's state-of-the-art generators using a unique combination of electrolysis cell technology, salt and electricity to alter the ionic structure of water to create non-toxic, oxidized antimicrobial solutions and reduced antioxidant cleaning solutions. EAU has conducted several successful trial installations to prove the efficacy of Empowered Water in poultry processing following successful trials conducted at the University of Georgia's Poultry Science Department in Athens, Georgia.

Empowered Water is currently used on a commercial basis as part of the pathogen intervention program in one of the world's largest poultry processing facilities, which processes over 350,000 birds per day. EAU's environmentally friendly solutions are effective at killing Salmonella, E. coli, Campylobacter as well as most other tested organisms.

"Not a day goes by where we don't hear about some form of food safety related recall or the pressures food processors are under to meet new Corporate Social Responsibility goals," said Wade Bradley, CEO of EAU Technologies, Inc.

"Empowered Water can be part of the solution to many of the pathogen intervention challenges a poultry processor may face." Mr Bradley continued, "As processing plants strive to obtain the highest USDA rating, Category 1, EAU's non-toxic solutions can help exceed the new USDA demands while decreasing the use of harsh chemicals."

Mr Bradley added that EAU is actively involved in commercialising industrial applications for poultry processing, Clean-in-Place (CIP), agriculture as well as in dairy applications.
