BTA 2015

Ateknea to showcase food tech innovation at BTA

Ateknea’s Barcelona Office will be taking part at the Barcelona Food Technologies trade fair (BTA) and showcasing examples of innovation in food technology.

The BTA will run from 21-24 April 2015 at Fira Barcelona in the Catalan capital and was last held in 2012, attracting over 35,000 food industry visitors from 85 countries.

The 2015 edition of BTA has become a key date in the agendas of food and drink manufacturers, importers and exporters, engineering firms, and the retail trade who will attend the 3-day event to exhibit and discover the latest technology in the food sector.

Having a successful track record over the past 18 years of developing technologies for the food sector,  Ateknea will be showcasing at the BTA, four examples of its innovative solutions that have been co-financed with European funding.

  • Encork: A solution for the wine industry. Encork is an odour-based detection technology applied to electric noses in bottling plants to stop the potential damage caused by contaminated cork stoppers.
  • Ovoshine: A low-cost solution for the egg industry. A secure and fast UV system in combination with hot air sterilises eggs without altering their fresh and natural attributes, reducing the risk of diseases such as salmonella.
  • Phenolive: An innovative solution for the olive oil industry. Phenolive extracts non-chemical polyphenolic compounds from wet olive pomace left after olives are squeezed to produce olive oil, producing a high-value byproduct for the food sector.
  • Vinbot: A novel solution for viticulture. Vinbot is an independent and all-terrain mobile robot capable of capturing and analyzing vineyards images and 3D data to determine wine production suitability.

Ateknea’s business managers and engineers will also be on hand at the BTA to advise SMEs that are in the process of commercially developing their ideas, products of services for the food industry but seek engineering and financial initiatives to carry out their technological innovation for  market launch and uptake.
