Pork Stunning by CO2


Stunning systems by Carbon dioxide (CO2) for pigs are essential in any new line or renovation of a pig slaughter line. The main reason is the quality of the meat that this system achieves, thanks to the decrease in the pH of the meat, which translates into an improvement in the PSE index of the same.

This system also removes petechiae from the meat, while preventing the breakage of backbones and hams. A correct handling of the animals, according to the Mecanova instructions, reduces the stress of the animal, and facilitates compliance with the European Animal Welfare Regulation CE No. 1099/2009 of the European Council.
