Silo Olten has a system from the company Eco2 Project B.V.. EcO2 has developed a controlled atmosphere specifically for organically grown produce to kill insects at all stages of development in food. The technology is 100% non-toxic, has no effect on the quality or quantity of the products and leaves no residue.
The silo is located at the SBB junction in Olten with a railway siding for storage and retrieval. An own shunting vehicle guarantees the daily delivery and removal of the silo wagons. The loading and unloading capacity is 100 tonnes per hour for storage or retrieval in silo wagons
Two rail-independent unloading and loading points guarantee rapid handling of camions. An automatic loading system also enables camions to be loaded outside of operating hours.
Since 2019, Silo Olten has held ISO 9001 and ISO 22000 certificates as well as organic certification.
The entire facility is monitored by a video system.
