Reduce water and energy consumption at our industrial sites
Romain, Scientific Director - Methods, Innovation and Performance, Laïta, Yffiniac (22)
"In the spirit of openness and innovation we supported Thrasos, the winner of EvenUp’s second annual start-up competition, throughout 2022. Their FS Guard app uses artificial intelligence to optimise cleaning programmes at on-site cleaning facilities, and we put our Yffiniac (22) facility at the disposal of the Thrasos team to carry out the necessary tests to demonstrate the concept. The tests, which were conducted on the milk storage tanks, proved conclusive, resulting in a 40% reduction in water, 50% in energy and 43% in cleaning time".
"In the months ahead we will be deploying the solution with our standard equipment at Yffiniac (22) (tanks, lines, pasteurisers, etc.) and progressively at our other industrial sites. It is likely, in the medium term, that the new technology will be extended to other complex machinery such as evaporators and drying towers. This great partnership adventure with Thrasos means we have been influential in raising funds for the young entrepreneurs to develop their digital solution.".
The tests carried out at the Yffiniac site (22) by the Thrasos team reduced water and energy consumption and the time spent on cleaning milk storage tanks by 40% -50%.
