Summary
Since March 1 2006, thirty partners have joined forces in the new EU-funded Integrated Project ‘NovelQ’ which is designed to stimulate innovations in novel food processing and packaging. In this project, integrated strategic solutions for technical and basic research hurdles will be formulated for complex, real food products rather than food constituents.

Objectives
The main objective is to develop and successfully demonstrate - eco-friendly - novel processing technologies (HPP, PEF, Plasma, advanced heating technologies and packaging) for improved quality (fresh-like character, extended shelf-life) food. » read more
Working Approach
NovelQ represents an integrated interdisciplinary research, demonstration and dissemination project designed to overcome current bottlenecks that exist across the entire R&D chain. These bottlenecks inhibit the introduction of novel processing technologies in the European food industry and so limit is competitiveness. » read more
Technologies
NovelQ focuses on the following novel processing technologies: high pressure processing (HPP), pulsed electric field processing (PEF), plasma decontamination, advanced heating technologies and packaging. » read more
Partners
The NovelQ consortium is made up of 32 partners and co-ordinated by Agrotechnology & Food Innovation, part of Wageningen University & Research Centre, The Netherlands. » read more
