Emerging Meat Alternatives Conference (EMAC), a new conference organized by AIChE, is one of few scientific conferences focused on technical aspects of creating plant-based and cultured meats. Emerging meat alternatives are a prime example where biochemical and high-tech chemical engineering problems need to be solved in a multidisciplinary environment with biologists, chemical engineers and bioprocess engineers. The conference will focus on the technologies (and challenges) shared by plant-based... Read more
and cultured meat alternatives to achieve the goal of creating protein-rich food that can replace conventional meat. Technology areas covered will be development of plant proteins as ingredients (novel proteins/extraction/processing/off-flavors), texturizing, bioprocessing, cell and tissue culture and biomaterials. Food safety, quality control and regulatory issues will also be discussed.
