The effectiveness of surface decontamination affects product quality and safety. The industry uses larges volumes of water to remove food soils that have been "loosened" by detergents. Reductions in the usage of water and chemicals could restrict environmental impact and operating costs. This PhD studentship will examine the mechanisms involved in soil removal and develop a model to examine the effects of using different cleaning systems and regimes.
