Description

Food Engineering Innovations Across the Food Supply Chain discusses the technology advances and innovations into industrial applications to improve supply chain sustainability and food security. The book captures the highlights of the 13th International Congress of Engineering ICEF13 under selected congress themes, including Sustainable Food Systems, Food Security, Advances in Food Process Engineering, Novel Food Processing Technologies, Food Process Systems Engineering and Modeling, among others. Edited by a team of distinguished researchers affiliated to CSIRO, this book is a valuable resource to all involved with the Food Industry and Academia.

Feeding the world’s population with safe, nutritious and affordable foods across the globe using finite resources is a challenge. The population of the world is increasing. There are two opposed sub-populations: those who are more affluent and want to decrease their caloric intake, and those who are malnourished and require more caloric and nutritional intake. For sustainable growth, an increasingly integrated systems approach across the whole supply chain is required.

Key Features

  • Focuses on innovation across the food supply chain beyond the traditional food engineering discipline
  • Brings the integration of on-farm with food factory operations, the inclusion of Industry 4.0 sensing technologies and Internet of Things (IoT) across the food chain to reduce food wastage, water and energy inputs
  • Makes a full intersection into other science domains (operations research, informatics, agriculture and agronomy, machine learning, artificial intelligence and robotics, intelligent packaging, among others)

Readership

Food science/technology engineers/Food Industry personnel, undergraduates in Food Engineering education programs

About the Editors

Pablo Juliano

Dr. Pablo Juliano leads the Food Processing and Supply Chains Group, which aims at solving food industry challenges through science and innovation. He obtained his PhD in Food Engineering at Washington State University in the USA and a Master of Business Administration at Deakin University in Australia. He also occupied management roles with Nestlé Uruguay and CONAPROLE, a major dairy exporter in Uruguay. With over 20 years of service to the food industry in 7 countries, he develops and directs circular economy research programs through technology innovation. He has published over 100 peer reviewed research in innovative food processing technologies and optimisation of food supply chains. In particular, he led the development and commercialisation of an unprecedented, patented technology for food waste recovery. He is the CSIRO representative on the Australian Food Waste Strategy together with industry peak bodies, the federal and state governments, and is working with food clusters towards the implementation of agricultural food processing hubs for regional development. He is President of the Australian Food Engineers Association.

Kai Knoerzer

Dr. Kai Knoerzer has a background in process engineering (BSc), chemical engineering (MSc) and food process engineering (PhD, summa cum laude), all awarded from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany). In 2006, he commenced work with Food Science Australia (a joint venture of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and the Victorian Government) as a Postdoctoral fellow. He has since become a Principal Research Scientist in CSIRO Agriculture and Food. Kai has a proven track record in food process engineering research and development, particularly of innovative technologies. Currently, he is leading research and venture science activities across a number of innovative food processing technologies, including high pressure thermal processing and extrusion technology. Kai’s work has shown both science impact, with more than 100 peer-reviewed journal publications, conference proceedings and book chapters, 7 patents/applications, 4 edited books and over 100 oral and 50 poster presentations at national and international conferences, as well as commercial impact in the food industry. His work has also been recognised with various international awards for research excellence. Kai has been an active member of IFT’s International Division in the leadership team for >10 years and is past chair of this division. Kai serves Elsevier's Food Science Reference Collections as the Food Process Engineering section editor.
