05th Dec 2013: Chinese state representatives of industry and administration in the field of grain industry visited the institute to get information on new technologies to improve resource efficiency in grain production. 

ATB presented sensor-based methods for the application of plant protection agents and for the selective quality oriented grain harvesting, as well as energy efficient and product gentle drying technologies for grain.

In ATB's new drying lab Dr. Jochen Mellmann explained the mechanisms of the novel dryer design developed on basis of fundamental research. It reduces energy consumption up to 30% and is characterized by a homogeneous and gentle drying process.
