N2 Applied’s strategic partnership with GEA is definitely starting to bear fruit. Last day in August the news broke that GEA is partnering with Unilever, a global consumer goods major and one of the largest ice-cream producers in the world, to improve sustainability on dairy farms. As a first step, GEA will install four units of the ProManure E2950 Manure Enricher, utilising N2’s plasma technology, on Dutch farms that supply milk to Unilever.

– We are proud that our technology is part of this collaboration, says Carl Hansson, CEO at N2 Applied

– Industry, farmers and consumers recognise the need to make food production as sustainable as possible. Our plasma technology provides significant reductions in nitrogen pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, which are two major challenges facing agriculture. At the same time, the resources on the farm are utilised in a much better way,” says Hansson.
