Kick-off of project Phenoils

April 16, 2020

EnergyPulse Systems is starting project Phenoils, a European project to achieve healthier virgin olive oil extraction

EnergyPulse Systems will work throughout 2020 on the project Phenoils, in which will study the implementation of new processing technologies in mills for a healthier virgin olive oil extraction. This R&D project has been awarded by the EIT Food, as an EIT Regional Innovation Scheme Challenge.

Besides EnergyPulse Systems, the project Phenoils   has the contribution of other partners of the EIT Food: Acesur (project leader), Instituto de la Grasa (CSIC), Fraunhofer Technology Centre and University of Turin.

One of the main goals of this project is to increase the presence of compounds such as tocopherols, polyphenols and other bioactive compounds in virgin olive oil that have a proven positive effect on cardiovascular diseases and metabolic syndrome, using new extraction technologies in mill (hydrodynamic cavitation, ultrasound and pulsed electric fields technology (PEF)).

The influence of these new technologies and the evolution of the content of minor compounds over the life of virgin olive oils will also be studied. To this end, several SMEs have been involved in Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece, where the production of virgin olive oil is very relevant to their economies.

 This is a two-year project and EnergyPulse Systems, together with the other partners of this consortium, will show the advantage of a pre-treatment by PEF on the industrial efficiency and final product quality for a healthier, premium virgin olive oil. In addition, educational programs will be carried out in benefit of producers and students from participating countries.

EIT Food, improving food together

February 28, 2020

EnergyPulse Systems is proud to renew its partnership with EIT Food:

EIT Food is Europe’s leading food innovation initiative, working to make the food system more sustainable, healthy and trusted.

The initiative is made up of a consortium of key industry players, startups, research centres and universities from across Europe. It is one of eight Innovation Communities established by the European Institute for Innovation & Technology (EIT), an independent EU body set up in 2008 to drive innovation and entrepreneurship across Europe.

EIT Food aims to collaborate closely with consumers to develop new knowledge and technology-based products and services that will ultimately deliver a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle for all European citizens.

EIT Food has created the RisingFoodStars Association, which serves as an umbrella for high potential agrifood startups and scaleups, to support and nurture a select group of young companies. The Association is a partner of EIT Food and as such allows its members to participate in all EIT Food activities, thus contributing to the delivery of EIT Food’s strategic objectives.

You can follow EIT Food via website (www.eitfood.eu) or via social media: Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube or Instagram.

PureWine project started 01-12-2019

February 6, 2020


PureWine: “Increasing quality and production capacity of European wine industry through an innovative Pulsed Electric Field-based process applied to vinification”

A pilot-plant winery will be installed in Gouveia, heart of the Dão wine region in Portugal.

PureWine project aims to use Pulsed Electric Fields (PEF), developed by EnergyPulse Systems (EPS), enabling wineries to increase productivity of both red and white wines and to reduce the use of heat and chemicals during processing:

1. Reduction in 30% of the maceration time in red wine production for the extraction of polyphenols and colour;

2. Increase in 10% of polyphenols in red wine thermo vinification;

3. Increase in 10% of juice extraction yield during the first low pressure stage of high-quality white wine production;

4. Replacement or reduction in 75% of heat and chemical substances (e.g. SO2 or dimethyl carbonate/DMDC) used for improving the microbiological stabilisation of red wine during the control of Brettanomyces (Brett) infestations.



PureWine: “Increasing quality and production capacity of European wine industry through an innovative Pulsed Electric Field-based process applied to vinification”

 Códigos do Projeto: CENTRO-01-0247-FEDER-041392 | LISBOA-01-0247-FEDER-041392

Apoio: PROJETOS DEMONSTRADORES INDIVIDUAIS – Selos de Excelência|Aviso 19/SI/2018


Objetivo: OT 1 – Reforçar a investigação, o desenvolvimento tecnológico e a inovação

Localização do Projeto: NUTS II – CENTRO e LISBOA

Data de Aprovação: 05/09/2019

Data de Início: 01/12/2019

Data de fim: 30/11/2021

Montantes envolvidos:

  • Investimento Total: 757.611,61 Euros
  • Investimento Elegível Total: 748.194,94 Euros
  • Apoio Financeiro (Incentivo Não Reembolsável): FEDER 454.590,95 Euros

 Objetivo:  O projeto PureWine consiste numa nova tecnologia de retrofitting baseada em campos elétricos pulsados (PEF) desenvolvida pela EnergyPulse Systems (EPS), que permite às adegas/ caves aumentar a produtividade de vinhos tintos e brancos e reduzir o uso de calor e produtos químicos.


  1. (Re)Engenharia da atual máquina de EPS, para torná-la apta à produção em larga escala;
  2. Testes em ambiente relevante do equipamento PureWine numa linha piloto em condições reais de operação, que comprovarão o desempenho da solução, na produção de vinhos tintos e brancos de alta qualidade;
  3. Extensão da variedade de uvas (a partir das uvas já testadas) que podem ser tratadas com sucesso através do equipamento PureWine, com o objetivo de cobrir a maior parte da produção da EU.

Resultados esperados: Instalado nas linhas de produção existentes, o PureWine permitirá melhorar o desempenho da fase de vinificação, oferecendo os seguintes benefícios:

  1. redução de 30% do tempo de maceração na produção de vinho tinto para a extração de polifenóis e cor;
  2. aumento de 10% de polifenóis na vinificação térmica do vinho tinto;
  3. aumento de 10% no rendimento da extração de sumo durante a primeira fase de baixa pressão na produção de vinho branco de alta qualidade;
  4. substituição ou redução de 75% de calor e substâncias químicas (por exemplo, SO2 ou dimetilcarbonato / DMDC) utilizados para melhorar a estabilização microbiológica do vinho tinto durante o controlo de infestações por Brettanomyces (Brett).
