The Role of Bioprocessing and Fermentation Technology

Bioprocessing is a key technology in the food sector and innovations in this field can contribute to improving the sustainability of the food production system, from the generation of high-value bio-based products from waste streams to the production of cell-based proteins as food ingredients.

The programme for this event included national and international experts, as well as representation from national agencies. It provided an opportunity to hear from Teagasc experts in the field, as well as interactive demonstrations and tours of Teagasc’s new Bioprocess Innovation Suite.

  • The Bioprocess Innovation Suite at Teagasc

    Professor Olivia McAuliffe introduces the Bioprocess Innovation Suite at Teagasc Moorepark. This facility aims to be a "one stop shop" for bioprocess development, optimisation and scale up.

  • The Teagasc Next Generation Sequencing Centre

    Dr Fiona Crispie introduces the Teagasc Next Generation Sequencing. This centre is based in Teagasc Moorepark and contains a selection of DNA sequencers, as well as peripheral infrastructure to support preparation and quality control of samples.

  • The National Food Imaging Centre at Teagasc

    Dr Nooshin Vahedi Kia introduces the National Food Imaging Centre at Teagasc Moorepark. The applications in this centre are focused on understanding the impact of composition, formulation and processing on the microstructure of foods.

  • The Flavour Chemistry Facility at Teagasc

    David Mannion introduces the Flavour Chemistry Facility at Teagasc Moorepark. Flavour Chemistry is the scientific discipline to determine compounds that are responsible for the characteristic flavours found in food and beverages.

  • Downstream Processing Facilities at Teagasc

    Dr John Tobin discuss the downstream process technologies available at Teagasc Moorepark to support the Bioprocess Innovation Suite, which are located in the pilot plant Moorepark Technology Ltd and the Biofunctional Food Engineering Facility.
