Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research will be carried out as part of the project "Technologies and operating models for the sustainable management of the food chain by the valorization of the organic by-products of the food industry for energetic purposes, the minimization of food waste of the supply chain and consumers and by the treatment and valorization of the edible fraction of municipal solid waste - BE & SAVE”. The researchers involved in the project will carry out research on chemico-nutritional and physical properties of food waste and feeds. They will perform analysis using both conventional and innovative non-invasive NIRS (Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy) methods to investigate different parameters such as acidity, moisture, crude protein, crude fat, crude fiber, Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF) , Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF), Lignin (ADL), nitrogen fractions related to fiber (NDF-N and N-ADF), tannins, antioxidants (polyphenols) and mycotoxins.
