Mild inovative treatment for wine stabilization The project pursues two objectives. The first objective is to advance the knowledge in ceramic materials (metal oxides) design strategies for adsorbing and removing typical contaminants responsible for the instability of wine and other organic beverages; a further, secondary objective, is to implement the aforementioned design strategies in a new resource-effcient process that improves the overall quality and nutritional value of organic wine and other beverages. The first objective is pursued increasing knowledge on the mechanistic processes underlying the adsorption of specific chemical compounds (undesirable wine contaminants such as proteins and metal ions) on the surface of metal oxides, in form of mesoporous materials, submicrometric powders, nanostructured coatings. For this purpose the physical/chemical/electrostatic effects involved, the adsorption selectivity, the absorption strength and effectiveness, the desorption processes will be investigated. Applying sensory and chemical analysis, the impact of the ceramic materials on other wine constituents are investigated and their sensory relevance. Based on mechanistic results, the secondary objective is pursued exploring manufacturing technologies to integrate the developed innovative material, with reduced processing time and costs, also entailed in the recovery or disposal of waste provided by batch treatment systems currently used in the food industry. As final outcome the MI-WINE project will deliver a mild process lab fow-system that will be lab validated versus specific Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as the technical, economic, production advantages and social bene¿ts, outlined in the impact section.

Organic agro- food systems as models for sustainable food systems in Europe and Northern Africa - subproject FH Münster SysOrg aims to identify intervention and entry points to enable a transformation process to resilient, sustainable food systems, and to identify how pathways to increase sustainable consumption and food production could be successfully designed. For this it is necessary to understand better food systems including the involved multitude of actors and to identify critical points within the system. The hypothesis is that food systems have common intervention and entry points for enabling transformation processes that are transferable but have to be adapted regionally. SysOrg focuses on territorial food systems and not only on organic or conventional production, but on the whole system (system approach). The four perspectives (system transition, diet, organic food & farming, waste) cover the essential characteristics of sustainable food systems. In particular, the combination of the four perspectives in the analysis and derivation of transformation paths is very innovative. The analysis of five cases in five different countries, geographically distributed over Northern, Eastern, Central and Southern Europe as well as North Africa, and the discussion in transnational multi actor workshops ensure that the results obtained can be transferred to other regions as starting or accelerator points for the transformation of food systems.This is done by mapping and analysing five case territories (Copenhagen, Cilento, North Hessia, Warsaw, Kenitra) from four perspectives · system transition, · shifting towards sustainable diets, · enhancing organic food & farming and · reducing waste in a transdisciplinary way. This trans-national multiple case study will encompass a multi-stakeholder approach. SysOrg will result in improved and locally adapted strategies for transformation of food systems across Europe and Northern Africa to sustainable, resilient and resource efficient food systems with less environmental impacts and high socio-cultural acceptance.

Organic agro- food systems as models for sustainable food systems in Europe and Northern Africa - subprojekt Uni Kassel The aim of SysOrg is to identify intervention and entry points to facilitate a process of transformation towards resilient and sustainable food systems, and to determine how to successfully design ways to increase sustainable consumption and food production at points throughout the system. This requires a better understanding of food systems, including the multitude of actors involved, and an identification of what are the critical points within the system (barriers, pressures and enablers, evidence gaps and levers).

Peat-reduced and peat-free substrates for the organic herb produktion - testing, optimization and knowledge transfer The aim of the project is the development and testing of pot herb substrates with a high share of peat substitute (at least 30 to 50 % up to a peat-free substrate). The following points are in the main focus of the project. Optimization of the use of common peat-reduced substrates with different amounts of peat substitutes focused on an adapted cultivation in cooperation with farms and the substrate companies. Identification of further, possible problem areas and possible solutions through cultivation trials with appropriate substrates in experimental farms. Identification of physical, chemical and biological conditions of selected substrates. Economic evaluation of the peat-reduced substrates in comparison to the common non-peat-reduced substrates. Development, testing and optimization of the production process of premium green composts which can be optimally used in horticultural substrates for organic farming and which also have positive effects on plant health. Cultivation trials containing a high proportion of these composts (30-100 % peat substitute) carried out in cooperation with the Ingenieurbüro for Sekundärrohstoffe and Abfallwirtschaft, the compost industry as well as the Bundesgütegemeinschaft Kompost (BGK e.V.). In cooperation with the BGK, a quality guideline for these premium composts will also be developed. Expansion and optimisation of existing networks with the help of appropriate technology for the exchange of information between all stakeholders. Fast and practice-oriented knowledge transfer to the relevant target groups. Implementation of workshops on sustainability aspects of peat substitutes, on soil-borne diseases and pests, especially fungus gnats, as well as on substrate revitalisation and its effects.

Decision-making and planning aids for organic husbandry of laying hens and broiler chickens Planning and decision-making aids for farm managers are being developed for sustainable and market-oriented organic husbandry of laying hens and broiler chickens, which supports the expansion and continuous improvement of these two branches. These information materials are based on existing publications and incorporate, as far as possible, new knowledge from ongoing projects. At the end of the project they will be available in practice. The evaluation criteria originate from economy, environment and animal welfare but also social aspects such as workload are considered. New knowledge, especially about the husbandry of dual-use lines and new breed crossings, is integrated by comparing origins of breeding and testing stations as well as origins of field tests.

Optimisation of the mobile housing concept for free-range keeping of laying hens, taking into account predator protection, nutrient distribution and animal welfare, towards a universal and scalable low-input poultry farming method The overall objective of the OptiHuhn project is to refine the concept of mobile housing. Proven components are to be taken over, but solutions for known difficulties and system conflicts are to be developed and implemented. Central system conflicts are pasture use, investment costs, complexity, predators, parasites and scalability. In the OptiHuhn project, a poultry grazing system developed by the Department of Agricultural Engineering will be implemented and tested in practice. Due to the economic importance of laying hen husbandry, the implementation and validation within the project is limited to this production method. An adaption, for example to fattening poultry farming, is possible at a later stage beyond this project.

Optimization of organically produced pea starch for using in different foodstuffs - subproject TU Berlin The quality of pea starch has so far been subject to strong fluctuations, which repeatedly lead to reduced food product qualities. This is not least due to low appreciation and creation of native grain legumes so far. After decades of recession, there has been a certain revival in cultivation of grain legumes at home for the last few years. Reduced breeding programs contributed to the fact that only a few varieties are left and their optimization, especially with regard to individual valuable ingredients (especially starch, proteins, non-nutritive ingredients) has not been promoted comprehensively. The aim of this project is to characterize the reasons for fluctuating pea starch quality and to identify genotypes that have a good starting pea starch quality and thus, also provide the basis for further optimization by breeding. For this purpose, varieties, genetic resources and breeding strains of a hundred summer and a hundred winter peas will be grown and, after starch/starch-based products have been obtained, a selection is made regarding starch content and composition (e.g., amylose/amylopectin ratio, cross-linking of amylopectin) and technofunctional properties (gel and Film formation, baking ability, stability under the influence of acid, shear and heat). These properties will be also tested on finished products (e.g., bakery goods, extrusion products, fillings (e.g., for confectioneries), (glass) noodles, instant dishes). The project is accompanied by a number of associations as well as smaller and larger industrial partners, who provide advice on ideas and tasks. The project idea is based on the problem of fluctuating qualities identified by industry, when using the pea starch so far. Accordingly, initial solutions for the industry can be offered with this project. In addition, the development of new value-added concepts and product ideas leads to the spreading of the idea and the diversification of the market for organically produced products.

Improvement of the EU organic control and certification system through the integration of digital certification, product transaction, and geographic data, and the development of an implementable technological concept using the example of the grain chain - subproject Thünen Institut Production processes as well as control and certification have been regulated by the EU Organic Regulation since 1991. In Germany, the Organic Farming Act implements EU legislation, in particular regulating the approval of inspection bodies. The EU organic regulation has been revised several times. For example, risk-based procedures were introduced to uncover violations and wilful fraud. The ongoing revision provides for further improvements. Several large cases of fraud as well as the reports of the European Court of Auditors have underlined that the further development of the EU Organic Regulation will not sufficiently close the known loopholes for fraud. Concrete measures were proposed by various parties involved, but these were not taken up or only insufficiently. The opportunities that arise from digitization and the availability of data from external sources, e.g. geographic information systems, were not considered, although these are already used successfully in the control of programs of the CAP. The Covid19 pandemic has impressively demonstrated that, if on-site inspections are no longer possible, exceptions to the control procedures must be allowed and remote audit techniques be implemented short-term. In essence, the weaknesses are particularly evident in the lack of the requirement to collect relevant data mandatorily, to link it from individual fields across the entire product chain (traceability of certification and product transaction data). The availability of data plays a decisive role here, and the EU could regulate the digital collection of these data. With the proposed project to improve the organic control and certification system, in particular through the integration of certification and product transaction data, geographic information systems, and suitable methods of the Internet of Things (IoT), the project partners will develop recommendations for its further development.

In Germany, the Organic Farming Act implements EU legislation, in particular regulating the approval of inspection bodies. The EU organic regulation has been revised several times. For example, risk-based procedures were introduced to uncover violations and wilful fraud. The ongoing revision provides for further improvements. Several large cases of fraud as well as the reports of the European Court of Auditors have underlined that the further development of the EU Organic Regulation will not sufficiently close the known loopholes for fraud. Concrete measures were proposed by various parties involved, but these were not taken up or only insufficiently. The opportunities that arise from digitization and the availability of data from external sources, e.g. geographic information systems, were not considered, although these are already used successfully in the control of programs of the CAP. The Covid19 pandemic has impressively demonstrated that, if on-site inspections are no longer possible, exceptions to the control procedures must be allowed and remote audit techniques be implemented short-term. In essence, the weaknesses are particularly evident in the lack of the requirement to collect relevant data mandatorily, to link it from individual fields across the entire product chain (traceability of certification and product transaction data). The availability of data plays a decisive role here, and the EU could regulate the digital collection of these data. With the proposed project to improve the organic control and certification system, in particular through the integration of certification and product transaction data, geographic information systems, and suitable methods of the Internet of Things (IoT), the project partners will develop recommendations for its further development.
