Science & Expert work

Ensus Consulting offers Science & Expert work to solve specific hygiene issues related to the matrices

  • water and air: using biocidal products & treatment technologies
  • food and feed: using biocidal products & disinfection technologies
  • organic wastes and manures: using biological processing technologies (composting, anaerobic digestion, etc…)

Ensus Consulting can help in a variety of ways:

1. Innovation: studies and projects

  • ‘Innovation’ includes desk studies and research projects. Literature and patent research are examples of desk studies. A first audit is made starting with a desk study allowing to suggest a theoretical solution for the problem. Subsequently a practical solution is developed e.g. on laboratory, pilot and/or industrial scale. Projects are often realised in cooperation with universities and research institutes and with financial support from national or European institutes (research or innovation grants).
  • Completed innovation studies and projects: In total more than 50 academic and industrial projects have been completed. Next to academic projects an extensive list of industrial innovation projects has been completed in collaboration with (inter)national beverage & food companies, many SMEs, water production facilities, waste treatment facilities, health care facilities, and others, concerning the following topics:
    • Water hygiene
    • Bioremediation (e.g. pesticide polluted water and organic waste streams)
    • Solid waste hygiene
    • Food hygiene
    • Other fields (e.g. human and public hygiene & personal care).
