Innovative electronic nose for on-premises grain quality testing

Reference number
Coordinator C-SENSE AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration February 2018 - July 2018
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The global population is estimated to reach 10 billion by 2050, with an increased crop demand for human consumption and animal feed by 100%. Today grain is the second largest traded commodity, after oil. As a result, grain quality verification has a direct impact on the global food security. This is where we come in, we are able to analyze grain chemical composition by its scent, an internal property that does not manifest itself visually. What we do is highly relevant as research reveals that for every degree Celsius the global temperature increases, we stand to lose 6% of its wheat crop.

Expected results and effects

Our results have offered us a deeper understanding of the market and market needs. By formulating an effective business plan, we have been able to gain greater insights which has increased our competitiveness. This project has been fundamental in allowing us to grow and further develop C-Sense.

Planned approach and implementation

Through close collaboration with various companies, universities and experts we have identified specific areas for improvement based on the market requirements. These findings have contributed to a better product costing and pricing strategy.
