The more efficient use of resources can limit environmental impacts and meet consumer needs. In the food industry, there are processes in the processing of continuous flows with variable quality of the raw materials that so far can only be controlled to a limited extent in terms of automation technology. In this session, you'll learn how the roasting of coffee and the pasteurisation of beverages using flash pasteurisers can be made more controllable and resource-efficient through smart solutions.
Shopping assistants, which provide important information on the origin, cultivation and production of food, also have an impact on sustainable food production. This product information supports consumers in resource-conserving consumption. A sustainability index that takes into account the value chain of a product increases the attractiveness of this application, increases technology acceptance in society and increases the visibility of the importance of sustainable and healthy nutrition.
