TERAFOOD • A compact low-cost terahertz sensor to monitor food quality

EuraMaterials-Projet TERAFOOD

The TERAFOOD project is developing a cheap compact sensor that can be placed in food packaging and used to check whether the contents are edible, thus reducing waste.

The project hopes to create a commercial sensor that can analyse the quality of packaged food.

The aim is to check the quality of individual packages, at any point in the process.

This project will have a significant impact on the regional cross-border economy by proposing a solution to help tackle the problem of food spoilage and waste in the food industry: a sector that generates wealth for the region.

EuraMaterials is a member of TERAFOOD’s Industrial User Advisory Board.
