ZURICH UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCES
The Institute of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry (ICBC) at the Zurich University
of Applied Sciences runs an application driven research and development program
aiming at sustainable and innovative processes and solutions.
Areas of activity include chemical and biochemical engineering, miniaturized and
continuous processes, new sustainable processes for existing and new products,
chemical and biochemical catalysis, novel materials for applications in several
fields.
Resource and energy efficiency, functionalized coating applications, light
management, advanced catalysis, tissue engineering, drug discovery, in silico drug
design and syntheses, molecularly imprinted polymers, downstream processing proteins, are examples of our main interests.
Our cutting-edge technologies, research facilities and highly specialized expertise
bring successful collaborations with industry (SMEs, start-ups, large companies)
and academia at Swiss and European level.
We create and develop more sustainable processes and advanced materials for
industrial applications and green chemistry.

Development and industrial implementation of fast
and sensitive technologies for the on-line and realtime monitoring of volatile organic compounds
(VOCs) for process control
Motivation: Volatile compounds are continuously emitted from
products during processing along the whole value chain. These
are sensitive markers of such processes and their time-resolved
monitoring allows a better control and optimization with respect to
quality at each step, consistency, and waste reduction.

Processing
Volatile compounds represent only a very small fraction of a
food product, yet they are related to important properties and
can be monitored non-invasively
flavour
age, shelf-life
origin (geographic, genetic)
history of treatment and processing
safety
quality

Raw material quality testing: traceability and transparency of origins and labelling
History of production and processing treatments of intermediate products
Age, shelf-life and freshness
Safety. Early identification of potential safety hazard
Testing and enforcement of legal or safety standards (shelf-life, quality deterioration,
contamination); can be used as early warning systems.
Process optimisation
Optimal processing for increased quality and reduced input (energy, time, raw
materials and ingredients) with the possibility of direct feedback control
Reduction of emissions and energy consumption
