Topics of joint applied research:

  • Strain selection and conservation for storage
  • Growth and phenotype performance of Baker’s yeast
  • Raw materials for yeast production
  • Process optimisation
  • Fermenter design and parameters
  • Yeast quality improvement
  • Hygiene/HACCP
  • Cost savings due to reducing process water and energy consumption
  • Ecological aspects of yeast production
