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.
