This conference aims to bring together experts in the field, graduate students and industrial practitioners to meet, to network and to hear about interesting developments or work in progress. Material is presented in oral and poster formats. Parallel sessions are not used.
Technical papers have been invited in all aspects of fouling and cleaning of food-related materials, tailored surfaces, and attachment of microbial species. Over 50 abstracts were received and ~47 papers will be presented at the conference.
The conference includes an overview and series of papers from the EU FP7 SUSCLEAN project.
The conference has been identified as a key meeting for the New Zealand FRIENZ project (Facilitating Research Innovation and cooperation between Europe and New Zealand) and will be attended by the group on the FRIENZ 2014 study tour on food processing in Europe.
The topics covered include:
- Adsorption and attachment of proteins, fat or oil, bacteria and carbohydrates to surfaces
- Cleaning of hard or porous surfaces, including membranes
- Disinfection – relating to cleaning and rinsing operations
- Biofilms – formation and removal
- Designing and manufacturing surfaces to mitigate fouling or promote cleaning
- Sensor development
- The ‘interface’ between equipment design, plant operation and microbiology
- Sustainability in operation and design, particularly in water minimization.
Conference sessions will be held in the, and accommodation will be in Jesus College.
