Holloid's sustainable growth and impacting sustainability
The pathway for Humanity
Demands from consumers and legislators for businesses to become more proactive and accountable are growing louder every day. The so called “Pathway for Humanity” is paved by any business willing to harness their power by directing their efforts towards global objectives within their reach.
We can see having an impact on the sustainable development within the ecological, social and economic dimensions. That could mean improving methods of food production, safeguarding our clean water sources or upgrading industries and infrastructures for sustainability. Read on to see exactly how Holloid can contribute!
Holloid works to reduce food waste and food loss by making production of clients in the food industry more efficient and detecting pathogens earlier. This directly affects the Shrink Ratio and increases the possible food output, while preventing food waste and mitigating green-house emissions associated both with waste and re-making of batches.
This improves efficiency along the food value chain, focusing on optimized usage of raw materials and other resources during production. Improved methods of food production by making full use of technical and scientific knowledge can make viable the production of alternative – more sustainable food sources such as alternative proteins. We can envisage that the resource usage optimisation – especially with water can facilitate food production in less arid areas.
The effect on Clean Water that Holloid can provide is twofold. Measuring devices can be used in bodies of water themselves to continuously monitor water quality and sound the alarm at contamination. In an industrial setting we can improve water performance and help increased reuse of fresh water. Early detection of spoilage avoids waste and thus helps our clients reduce their water usage and the detection of water contaminants ensures the safety of water which runs through the client’s production.
Holloids effect in the area of Clean Energy has can be in the net energy savings that derive from more efficient industrial processes, or the production of fuel itself. How not re-making a production batch saves energy is self-explanatory, but energy savings are also a by-product of constant and instant monitoring. For example, the product doesn’t have to be kept warm/cool for extended periods of time to run the traditional tests and there is no wasted time in production after the fermentation process is completed. As future fuel sources are made in bioreactors, Holloid directly contributes to their sustainability by facilitating a more efficient production process.
In the field of Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure (SDG 9) Holloid’s technology contributes to target 9.4. aiming to upgrade all industries and infrastructures for sustainability. Holloid system can be easily retrofitted to existing production lines as well as exist as an essential monitoring system of future developments. As described above this makes such production lines more sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency.
Holloid adapted a previously non commercially viable technology for wide spread use so the inception and purpose of Holloid is right at the heart of Target 9.5. – to Enhance research and upgrade industrial technologies. Our continues innovation will further add to this target.
Lastly and most comprehensively Holloid tackles SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production. As described under the Social and Ecological dimension Holloid facilitates sustainable use of natural resources in the production lines and reducing (food) waste at the time of production. And as 23% of all food waste occurs at the production level (Mervin de Groot, 2019, Too good to Go), mitigating those loses can have a substantial impact on both environmental and food availability levels.
