The state-of-the-art Food Science Pilot Plants are designed for processing flexibility with an emphasis on product specialization. The facilities are used for teaching, research and industry projects.
The Pilot Plants are ideal for the evaluation of new ingredients, formulations, and processes on a small scale, and for short course laboratories and equipment demonstrations. The facilities can accommodate multiple activities simultaneously. The floor plans are open and most of the equipment is on wheels. The utility stations positioned throughout each plant allow flexibility for short and long term projects.
