Max Rubner Conference 2014: Enzymes in Food Processing

28.05.2014

The Max Rubner-Conference 2014 will address the topic "Enzymes in Food Processing “.

The conference aims to provide an updated overview on the applications of enzymes in the food sector, and of progresses made in respect to exploit more efficient biocatalysts, through screening, structural modification, and immobilization of enzymes.

The Max Rubner Conference will take place from October 08-10, 2014 at the Max Rubner-Institut in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Enzymes are useful biotechnological processing tools whose action can be controlled in the food matrix to produce higher quality food products. They have been used in the food industry for many years.

These include enzymes used in baking, beverages and brewing, dairy, dietary supplements, as well as fats and oils. Even if the integration of enzymes in food and feed processes is a well-established approach, evidence clearly shows that dedicated research efforts are consistently being made as to make this application of biological agents more effective and/or diversified.

In recent years, significant advances in enzyme engineering and biocatalyst design have fastened the pace of such developments.

The conference aims to provide an updated overview on the applications of enzymes in the food sector, and of progresses made in respect to exploit more efficient biocatalysts, through screening, structural modification, and immobilization of enzymes.

Targeted improvements aim at enzymes with enhanced thermal and operational stability, improved specific activity, modification of pH-activity profiles, and increased product specificity, among others. This has been mostly achieved through protein engineering and enzyme immobilization, along with improvements in screening.

The latter has been considerably improved due to the implementation of high-throughput techniques, and due to developments in protein expression and microbial cell culture. Expanding screening to relatively unexplored environments has also contributed to the identification and development of more efficient biocatalysts. Technological aspects are considered, but legal and health aspects are also addressed.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
