12th International Congress on Engineering and Food

Markus Wied Dethlefsen (Participant)

Activity: Attending an eventParticipating in or organising a conference


Presented two posters: P1.055 (Coating properties of extruded fish feed pellets affected by pore structures) and P1.093 (Astaxanthin both as colouring agent and ant ioxidant in coated fish feed pellets). The goal of ICEF12 is to exchange new scientific knowledge of food engineering and to promote the interaction between professionals from academia, industry and government. The Congress will explore new paths for innovations in a rapidly changing food sector. ICEF12 will address questions related to the challenges that engineers are facing bringing science and creativity into food innovations. The Congress will be a vital opportunity to see what the future is for the bio-food industry, the impact of globalization and what place the local production and environmental issues should have in the world knowledge based bio-economy. ICEF12 will serve to ensure that future challenges for the bio-food industry are anticipated and discussed and that food engineers are meeting these challenges in order to provide adequate and innovative solutions. This is a significant opportunity for you to hear from leading edge speakers and to network with colleagues in industry and academia to ensure you keep abreast of recent developments in this fast evolving field.
