‘Wonder technology’ to transform farming, food production and mitigate AMR pioneered by IGFS
The Centre for Plasma in Agri-Food (AgriPlas for short) was officially opened on 14 June in the new Biological Sciences building.
AgriPlas is the first of its kind in Europe; its focus will not only be pioneering research into cold plasma – partially or wholly ionised gases that have antimicrobial properties – but also the potential transformation of commercial food production.
The dedicated research facility will work closely with the Northern Ireland, UK and European agri-food industry, as well as other stakeholders such as farmers, on a number of projects to explore the use of plasma technology in, for example, veterinary treatments, prolonging shelf life of agri-food products and farm biosecurity.
