Designing within the circular economy

How can the food industry and their equipment vendors use design as a tool to enter the circular economy?  Circular design is a tool used in the circular economy. The future must become more sustainable

Barriers to increased automation and technological development in food processing

The most important barrier for introduction of technology with artificial intelligence in processing of food in Norway, is the complexity of the new technology. The new technology is demanding for firms to adopt with their

On-line estimation of dry matter and fat content in production blocks of cheese by NIR spectroscopy

Modern dairy factories produce thousands of cheese blocks per day. We evaluated NIR spectroscopy for on-line determination of fat and dry matter in such cheeses. The motivation is true time control of the production process.

Robotic handling of compliant food objects by robust learning from demonstration

Today, robots lack the visual, tactile and cognitive intelligence of humans to perform complex handling and processing tasks. We show how to endow robots these abilities and how to teach them to handle complaint food

Traceability of hides through the supply chain

Hides are one of the most important rest raw materials or plus-products produced by the meat industry as they are further processed and used in leather production. The hide supply chain consists of a producer

Information sharing strategies in whitefish supply chain

Information sharing is one of the main supply chain strategies for reducing uncertainty and is vital for supply chain efficiency. All actors can benefit from sharing relevant information in a timely manner and improve supply

Research exchange from India to Norway

An Indian PhD student from IIT Kharagpur has been on a research exchange to SINTEF Ocean in the RE-food project working with the Norwegian whitefish supply chain in the iProcess project. In iProcess he worked

About us 

iProcess’s main objective is to develop novel concepts and methods for flexible and sustainable food processing in Norway – that are to cope with small volume series and high biologicalvariation of the existing raw materials – to enable increased raw material utilization for food
products and to increase profitability.
