Agro-Industrial and Technical Sciences

The Agro-Industrial and Technical Sciences Department is involved in teaching, research, consultancy and continuing education and leads a number of research programs on food and non-food applications of agro-resources.

The department’s associate professors specialize in a wide range of disciplines related to the industrial processing of agricultural products, food products and bioproducts.

The team has developed extensive expertise in methanogenesis, green chemistry and the impact of processes on the overall quality of food products.

  • Analytical chemistry
  • Mineral chemistry
  • Organic chemistry
  •  Food biochemistry and food science
  • Formulation and sensory analysis
  • Microbiology and bioprocesses
  • Industrial management and performance
  • Food process engineering
  • Physics, industrial refrigeration
  • Quality, health, safety and environment
  • Statistics
Associated scientific and technological facilities

The department uses state-of-the-art scientific infrastructures for its research, including:

Examples of projects and achievements
Projects in partnership with the Industries and Agro-Resources (IAR) competitive cluster
  • « SYNTHON » program: alternative ways of increasing the value of agro-resources with potential for industrial application
  • « CODIMETH » program: implementing a demonstration tool for anaerobic treatment of waste
  • « BETOX » program: analysis of the betalains extracted from garden beetroot – research into their anticancer properties and action mechanisms
Other projects
  • « MEXA » program: using dry methanogenesis techniques on farms
  • « ICARE » European program: impact study of a microwave process on the formation of neoformed products (linked to the Maillard reaction) during infant formula milk sterilization
  • « HOTPOT » Interreg IV A program: development of new production techniques for hot dishes that can be used for food services and will benefit vulnerable populations in the areas around the English Channel (southern coast of England and northern coast of France)
  • Bioprocesses (methanogenesis, waste treatment, fermentation)
