Proposal titleDevelopment of a electronic nose system for the automated quality control of

smoked fish

AbstractFish is an important and popular food in all countries of the European Union. On average,

each citizen of the EU consumedabout 25 kg of fish per year, from which 10% was smoked

fish.  The annual production of smoked fish products in Europe in 1996 was 100.000

tons, the turnover of the industry producing smoked fish and products from smoked fish was

about 1200Mio in 1996. The industry producing smoked fish products is crucially

dependent on the high quality of their products.The consumers demands more and more

quality and freshness - thus, quality and freshness become the major topic for the success

of these products on the market. Growing public awareness and scepticism of consumers on a

hard fought marketputs a continuous pressure on the companies towards product quality

and quality control. Currently, the industry employsconventional quality control methods

such as for example classical bacteriologic method, detection of total-volatile amines and

lactic acid.  Due to the limited reliability of this methods, there is a great interest in having

automated quality control systemssuch as the Electronic Nose proposed here available.

Against this background it's therefore the objective of the proposed research project, to

develop a new, automated qualitycontrol system based on the "Electronic nose" principle.

This will provide the SME fish-processing ..
