Food Preservation

Carburos Metálicos has a broad experience in Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) of food. MAP involves the use of three gases, carbon dioxide, oxygen and nitrogen with the aim to prolong the food shelf-life, keeping its sensorial and microbiological properties in the right way. The main activities carried out are (i) the development of new gas mixtures for the preservation and to prolong the shelf-life of all kinds of foods such as meat, fish, vegetables, bakery products, etc., and (ii) the application of CO2 for controlling pest in cereals, legumes, nuts, herbs, etc. Numerous experiments and studies are carried out, whether internally or to support companies. Carburos Metálicos has a Food Preservation Laboratory together with IRTA at its research center at Cabrils, including, food packaging machines, batch freezing equipments, gas mixer, gas analyzer, etc.


Bioenergy One of our research interests is the conversion of residual biomass into energy. That is, the conversion of waste from food processing, paper, water treatment or synthesis of biofuels with a major content of biomass through thermochemical processes by using oxygen, processing with CO2 or pretreatments complementary to fermentation, among others. Some examples would be the gasification and combustion with enriched atmospheres of oxygen of black liquor and others types of waste, extraction with supercritical CO2 or the breakdown of structure in the production of bioethanol from lignocellulosic materials with oxygen, CO2 or ozone. We have developed some technologies and Know-how in these areas. Several high pressure reactors with different configurations and sizes, from 10 ml to 16 l; it also includes a pilot plant, Phase Analyzer, Soxhtherm, Research boiler for different trials related to biomass conversion to energy.


Cryogenic freezing Freezing of different food products such as burgers, poultry products, fish, ice creams, bakery products, etc. The main activity carried out in the area is to improve liquid nitrogen cryogenic freezing systems. Carburos Metálicos has a Food Preservation Laboratory together with IRTA at its research center at Cabrils, including, food packaging machines, batch freezing equipments, gas mixer, gas analyzer, etc.


Disinsectisation Our Company, located in Barcelona, serves customers in technology, energy, healthcare and industrial markets worldwide with a unique portfolio of products, services and solutions, providing atmospheric gases, process and specialty gases, performance materials and chemical intermediates.

The technology offer that we present is the use of CO2 to control pests in food products during its storage and commercialization by means of Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) technology with a high CO2 content. Carburos Metálicos has a broad experience, more than 12 years, in this subject, with two patents granted and another one filed recently. Different gases mixtures and procedures have been tested to find the correct one that allows to control pests in any stage of their development.

Carburos Metálicos has a Food Preservation Laboratory together with IRTA at its research center at Cabrils. This laboratory is carrying out projects of R&D as well as technology support to industry, with the aim to improve the application of carbon dioxide for controlling pest in cereals, legumes, nuts, herbs, etc. Numerous experiments and studies are carried out, whether internally or to support companies, then, the effectiveness of modified atmospheres for the control of various different insect and mite species has been tested in the laboratory and under industrial conditions. The results of them allow the company to have two patents and another one submitted in this area, and a deep knowledge of this technology.


Water treatment In the water field, Carburos Metálicos has been widely providing to this sector (recreational, industrial cooling water systems, municipal industries, etc) with innovative, value-added technology solutions to improve water treatment processes for more than 30 years. Carburos Metálicos offers a range of applications for water treatment in different kind of waters(e.g. in the areas of industrial and municipal wastewater treatment, drinking water treatment and sludge digestion) and also processesses to meet the most stringent wastewater reuse disinfection requirements (COD, color, etc.) while also removing trace contaminants. Carburos Metálicos has a Laboratory equipped with all the necessary to develop all these applications and in addition we can build pilot plants to transfer the lab scale results to the next level.
