Closing the Sustainability Circle: Protection of Food with Biobased Materials

21.07.2017

• Renowned experts offer insights into current research results
• How consumers benefit from new materials

The Cofresco Forum’s 11th Round Table on 16 November 2017 entitled “Closing the Sustainability Circle: Protection of Food with Biobased Materials – How Consumers Benefit from New Materials and Research” will focus on the use of biobased materials to protect food. Lectures by international experts on the subject will provide a comprehensive overview of current research. In an extensive hands-on session, attendees will also have the opportunity to view the ATB’s test equipment and experiments.

In addition to their various properties, modern packaging should also be sustainable. With this in mind, biobased materials offer an interesting alternative as they can play an active role in reducing food waste.

The speakers will not only focus on materials, but also on other ideas to improve the conservation of food. The 11th Round Table of the Cofresco Forum at the Leibniz Institute will provide answers and insights on the following topics and questions:

• Which new materials are there and which are suitable for food packaging?
• How sustainable are biobased plastics?
• How can we improve the detection of pathogens and display the individual shelf life of food items?

During the hands-on session, participants will be able to view the research centre of the Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy. The laboratories used to produce basic materials for bioplastics will be inspected and test series for various approaches to food preservation will be presented.

After the session, the attendees will have the opportunity to network with the speakers and other participants during a casual get-together.

Participation in the Round Table is free.
The conference language is English.
The registration deadline is 9 November 2017.

Registration forms and further information on the Round Table are available at http://www.cofresco.de/en/sites/forum/events.html

Im Focus: How do scars form? Fascia function as a repository of mobile scar tissue

Abnormal scarring is a serious threat resulting in non-healing chronic wounds or fibrosis. Scars form when fibroblasts, a type of cell of connective tissue, reach wounded skin and deposit plugs of extracellular matrix. Until today, the question about the exact anatomical origin of these fibroblasts has not been answered. In order to find potential ways of influencing the scarring process, the team of Dr. Yuval Rinkevich, Group Leader for Regenerative Biology at the Institute of Lung Biology and Disease at Helmholtz Zentrum München, aimed to finally find an answer. As it was already known that all scars derive from a fibroblast lineage expressing the Engrailed-1 gene - a lineage not only present in skin, but also in fascia - the researchers intentionally tried to understand whether or not fascia might be the origin of fibroblasts.
