Enhanced, intelligent processing of food and related wastes using thermophilic populations

Objective

This project is aimed at improving the viability and environmental sustainability of the European food industry, by using thermophilic microbial "cell factories" combined with knowledge-based control to achieve safer, cleaner, more energy-efficient bioremediation of the vast volumes of wastes produced. We shall achieve this by:
a) developing eneric knowledge-based protocols for thermophilic process design and operation;
b) combining these protocols with advanced microbiological and process analysis and control techniques to operate bioreactors containing thermophilic bioprocesses for the pathogen-free treatment of food industry and related wastes, with maximal energy recovery. The outcome will be industrially-tested Knowledge-Based Control System software.
