Melon packing house improves post-harvest biosecurity through HPGen water treatment

Agrolíbano is one of the largest melon growers in the world, with over 6000 ha of crops by the Pacific Ocean in Honduras. In an effort to further strengthen bio-security practices and optimize water usage, Agrolíbano was looking for a long-term solution enabling sustainable and safe reuse of the water in the post-harvest wash of the fruits. To this end they turned to HPNow, which recommended implementing three HPGen systems for this operation.

Introducing the HPGen I-Series: Peroxide made Simple

HPGen I-Series addresses water treatment needs of municipal, industrial, and large-scale agriculture through autonomous, scalable, efficient and safe on-site peroxide generation. Hydrogen peroxide is a powerful oxidizer and well-known water treatment agent used across a wide range of applications in municipal water utilities and industries. At high concentration it is, however, also a hazardous chemical, posing an explosion hazard. Its permitting, storage and handling can accordingly be challen

Chemical-input free advanced oxidation through on-site peroxide generation in ground-breaking project

HPNow’s patented HPGen technology enables on-site hydrogen peroxide generation from water and electricity, without any chemical inputs. This proposition strongly appealed to Netherlands-based water treatment solutions provider PureBlue. By combining an HPGen system together with PureBlue’s UV chamber, chemical-input free UV – Peroxide AOP breakdown of trace organic compounds can be achieved for the first time.

Power-to-X installation for generation of Peroxide UltraPure™ implemented in Spain

This last December HPNow commissioned the world’s first full implementation of Power-to-Peroxide in Hermisan, an irrigation and agriculture company located near Alicante, Eastern Spain. The installation has allowed the company to produce peroxide using only power and water. “Peroxide can be produced directly on-site, without any transport or logistics”, explains Arnau Verdaguer, Director of Products at HPNow. “With solar power, peroxide can be produced without any CO2 emissions, or toxic waste – while the traditional bulk peroxide production and supply chain emits up to 3 tons of GHG and 10 tons of toxic waste per ton delivered on site.”

Clean irrigation for 100 hectares of soft fruit

East Seaton Farm is a leading soft fruit grower in East Scotland with more than 100 ha under management. The family business, formed in 1991, supplies the major supermarkets in the UK. They grow their blueberries and strawberries on soilless substrate with drip irrigation lines. Water is sourced locally from bore holes – while easily accessible and sustainable, this also posed a challenge, and that’s where HPNow comes in.
