Title: Design and Prototype of a Sustainable Egg-Washer

With the rise of pastured egg production, there is a critical need for egg washers work for small-scale farm operations. Currently most small-scale farmers use immersion washers, which are discouraged by the FDA, or simple cleaning techniques like dry cleaning, dipping or spraying. Working with a local sustainable farmer, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University students are designing egg washing machinery for a greener, more efficient alternative to support egg production by small farmers.
