NEW BIOIONIX INSTALLATION - KRAFT/OSCAR MAYER
McFarland, Wis., January 15, 2012
BioIonix Inc. announces the installation and startup of a BioIonix food safety system at the Kraft - Oscar Mayer meat processing plant in Davenport, Iowa. The BioIonix system maintains the microbial safety of one of this plant's very large lunch meat processing lines. The system treats the very cold concentrated salt water, brine, that rapidly cools the very large lunch meat "logs" from cooking temperature to cold storage and packaging temperatures. The use of the BioIonix process not only eliminates microbials and their growth, but also permits the line to operate for a significantly longer time before shut down and cleaning.
BIOIONIX NAMED ECO-PRODUCT OF THE YEAR
McFarland, Wis., November 2, 2011
BioIonix Inc.’s food safety disinfection process was named Eco-Product of the Year by In Business magazine as part of its Business Sustainability Awards program. This year’s program reflected an emphasis on melding good environmental stewardship with good business sense.
BioIonix manufactures water treatment equipment that generates a combination of disinfectants right from the water stream itself, eliminating the cost, safety concerns, and dispensing complications of traditional chemical disinfectants. “[The BioIonix process] is a great combination of food safety improvement and energy and water efficiency,” said one of the judges. “The food service sector is a tremendous resource user and waste generator. BioIonix provides a solution to both.”

NEW BIOIONIX INSTALLATION - COSTCO WHOLESALE
McFarland, Wis., December 1, 2010
BioIonix, Inc. announces the startup of its latest installation at Costco Wholesale's new meat processing plant in Tracy, California. Costco is known for its premium hot dogs sold in its stores and at their snack bars, and BioIonix now provides the pathogen control of the concentrated salt water, “brine”, that rapidly cools this product from cooking temperature to cold storage packing temperature.
Costco had three major goals that led them to choose the BioIonix process. The first was to keep this brine reliably disinfected for food safety reasons. The second was to eliminate the cost and operating complications of chemical disinfection methods. And the third was to permit this brine to be reused for up to three weeks at a time to minimize water use in this water poor area of country. Most other meat processors discharge their brine every day or every other day. The BioIonix installation has successfully met all of these objectives.

No odors or flavors are imparted to food products with water treated by the BioIonix process.
This technology provides safe extended reuse of water used for washing and chilling meat, poultry and vegetables. Food processors value its simplicity, effective and reliable control, and very low maintenance and operating costs. More information is available at www.bioionix.com.
McFarland, Wis., March 10, 2010
Food Engineering magazine, one of the leading trade magazines serving the overall food processing industry, interviewed BioIonix's Dr. Ajit Chowdhury on the development process of BioIonix's exclusive electrochemical food safety disinfection technology. That Food Engineering chose to do this interview demonstrates the high priority being given by the industry to identifying new methods of ensuring food safety. The key take home messages are that U.S. and international pathogen control regulations are being tightened, even prohibiting many current disinfection practices, and that the patented and patent-pending BioIonix process offers unique advantages over these methods and other alternatives. In addition, the article also discusses the many challenges that BioIonix successfully addressed in turning a research discovery into a robust, reliable commercial process.
