The "freshness terminal" is an ATB innovation that, thanks to intelligent technology, will provide consumers when shopping with information about the current state of freshness of fruits and vegetables. 

A new technology for microbial decontamination of plant surfaces - the treatment with cold plasma - is shown in the LeguAN project. 

Moreover, ATB informs on the potentials of biochar from agricultural waste as a sustainable and climate-friendly soil additive.
