WEDNESDAY 7 NOVEMBER
EXPERIENCE TOURS – MEET THE EXPERTS!
Stretch your legs and discover all the research facilities at Wageningen Campus! We will take you on a surprising tour in which the latest developments and innovations of the WUR will be brought to light.
1. Shelf life of fresh food products and robotics, Phenomea
This facility researches the shelf life of fresh food products and the possibilities for the use of robots in the agri-food sector.
- Robotics lab
- Quality and assessment lab
- Sustainable packaging lab
2. Sustainable innovations in health food, fresh food chains and biobased products, Foodhall
Applied research for sustainable innovations in healthy food, fresh food chains and biobased products.
- Mild preservation of food products – High pressure processing
- Shear cell technology produces a new generation of meat substitutes
- Surface decontamination of food and packaging – Low thermal plasma
- Mild preservation of food products – Pulsed electric field processing
- Looking inside materials using X-ray computer tomography
3. Agro Food Robots & Drones, Unifarm
The place to be for experiments with plants. Unifarm facilitates and supervises the cultivation part of plant and crop research. They combine a practical approach, technical knowledge, and service attitude to professionally guide experiments at a competitive price.
4. Commercial and sustainable production for food, feed chemicals, materials and fuels from microalgae, AlgaeParc
AlgaePARC is a large multidisciplinary research program which integrates the entire microalgae and cyanobacteria process chain. At AlgaePARC economic and sustainability assessment of the entire chain is used as a guiding tool for defining the research program which integrates biological and engineering aspects of cultivation and biorefinery. Technologies are developed both on a lab- and pilot scale and move from initial idea to the production processes, delivering competitive and innovative processes and products. In this way, they bridge the gap between fundamental research and applications.
5. Soil, the basis of growth, ISRIC World soil museum
The World Soil Museum is the only museum with a collection of soil profiles that covers the entire globe. There are thousands of soil profiles originating from about eighty countries from all parts of the world.
The quality of the soil determines the rate at which land use changes occur. Also, soil organisms play an important role in the development of soil structure, water storage capacity, composition of aboveground biodiversity, and success of pest control in agriculture, forestry and horticulture. Degradation of the soil physic-chemical environment, and loss of soil biodiversity may reduce the production capacity of soil, with possible side effects on atmospheric composition, climate regulation, water storage, food production, and nature conservation.
More presentations during the experience tour will soon be revealed
