Project Details

Description (abstract)

The global food systems are facing the challenge of providing healthy and adequate nutrition to the world’s growing population in a sustainable way. Novel food production technologies, such as vertical farming and cell-culturing based protein production (i.e. cellular agriculture) have gained wide interest in the past years as potential solutions for improving the sustainability of food systems. This project aims at estimating the environmental impacts of wide scale adoption of novel food production technologies and dietary changes.
