Quick measurements and mathematics combat waste in Danish biotech companies

Food researchers from the Department of Food Science at the University of Copenhagen combat waste in the Danish biotech industry with sensitive sensors and mathematics. They use so-called fast methods, which can measure on ingredients and parameters while fermenting, and interpret the measurements using chemometrics. The latter is a special branch within mathematics, where the measurements are explored from a holistic angle making it possible to spot relationships between and changes in single parts.
