Center for Advanced Technologies of Protein Use opened at Kaliningrad State Technical University

     As part of the department of food biotechnology, the Center for Advanced Technologies of Protein Use (CATPU) was opened at Kaliningrad State Technical University. It is located on the basement floor of the university building number 1 on Prof.Baranov Street.

     The ceremony began in the assembly hall of KSTU. V.Volkogon moderated the presentation of the new scientific center. First, he gave the floor to the head of the department of food biotechnology, professor O.Ya. Mezenova. She told the guests about the work of the department, how the center was created, and, of course, about plans for using the new ultra-modern facility. Among the functions of the center, the following were named: development of the technologies for extraction, use and modification of proteins; using it as a platform for interaction between science and business; educational process improvement; as well as inter-departmental and external scientific research.

     The work of the center will be aimed at solving the problem of secondary raw materials in the processing industry of the Kaliningrad region. Today, the region's enterprises leave more than 20 thousand tons of fish and meat products waste per year. At the same time, CATPU already has a tried-out scheme for processing secondary protein organic raw materials. A great weight of research carried out at the department of food biotechnology has been devoted to this issue. Appropriate process operations allow for the output of sublimated proteins, commercial fats and mineral fertilizers out of such waste.

     The partners of KSTU Kaliningrad State Technical University in the project on the establishment of CATPU were Russian Foundation for the Promotion of Innovation, as well as Federal Nature Conservation Fund of Germany and ANiMOX (German technology company), which has been in a log-term cooperation with the department. Representatives of the foreign partners also came to the opening and wished every success to the new center.

     On completion of the official part, all guests were invited to the center itself. At the entrance there was another nice ceremony of cutting the ribbon. It was attended by the head of the department of food biotechnology O.Ya. Mezenova and the director of "ANiMOX" Axel Hoeling. The guests duly appreciated the renovated premises equipped with modern equipment. And there are not only laboratories in the center, but also separate rooms for holding classes or small conferences.
