ultra-high pressure sterilization
Life Science / Technology
A sterilization method that uses extremely high pressure to kill pathogens. Developed as an alternative to heat sterilization, which can cause changes in an object's composition or even its destruction. This method allows for perishable foods to be stored over long periods of time while maintaining their freshness. It is particularly valued on Beyond Coast, whose citizens consume large amounts of fruits and vegetables. It is now also used to sterilize medical equipment and waste, and is part of the infection control system in hospitals as well.
