Chair of Food and Bioprocess Engineering
Founded in 1974, the Chair of Food and Bioprocess Engineering is closely related to the ZIEL Institute for Food & Health.The history of the ZIEL dates back to the year 1923, when it was first established as part of the Southern German Research Institute for Dairy Science.
The chair runs a modern pilot plant and labs equipped with a wide range of technical infrastructure.
Main research areas are membrane, centrifugal and chromatographic separation techniques, drying technology (incl. spray drying, microwave enhanced vacuum and freeze drying, foam mat drying), food structure engineering and analysis, starter culture and enzymatic bioprocess engineering, aseptic and sterile technology
In addition, there is the integrated testing laboratory at the Institute for dairy machinery and equipment.
