Many aspects of the applicants’ projects have been considered by the Rannís’ Board for deciding the grant.

Lukas Peciulaitis, Head of Engineering at ALVAR, remarks on the promising outlook of this new system: ”The project involves a technological solution that allows the disinfection of refrigerated shipping containers by applying mist.
