- Kromek has won a number of orders from UK and European airports for its European Civil Aviation Conference-certified bottle scanner. This screens passengers' liquid containers for explosives, affording them a quicker and safer passage through security.

Kromek says that as well as receiving orders from nine UK airports, new orders have been secured to supply airports in Portugal, Cyprus, and Belgium, with negotiations ongoing with other airports in the UK and Europe.

In addition, the company has received a new certification from the ECAC for an improved bottle scanner, which reduces the previous scanning time by half, now allowing the screening process to be completed in just over ten seconds and still retaining the highest performance category in its class.
