Grant Awarded in 2020
AOTECH receives a grant from the Economic Development and Infrastructure Department of the Basque Government within the framework of the “TUNANIR” project, for the application of spectroscopy in the analysis of tuna.
The TUNANIR project consists of the design, development and validation under real operating conditions of a system based on infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), for monitoring tuna loins prior to packaging. This monitoring will consist of real time and inline measurement of the percentages of fat, protein and moisture that tuna loins have on the conveyor belt, just before reaching the packaging machine.
AOTECH leads this project, carried out together with STAR Equipos e Ingeniería, for the application of photonics in the food industry, innovating with optical sensors based systems.
