About the Author
Prof. Remy Cachon has worked in the field of biotechnological processes since 1989. He is especially interested in the effects of gases on microorganisms and food quality, and in developing original processes using gases. His main fields of application are: bioreactors modeling, lactic acid fermentation, alcoholic fermentation, production of yeast biomass, lactic starters and probiotics, food quality, and modified atmosphere packaging. Prof. Cachon has managed and participated in several R&D projects (national, international, and industrial). He is also actively involved in the training and supervision of graduate students. Prof. Cachon has co-authored indexed articles, patents, technical papers, and congressional presentations. He is also regularly required as an expert for French and European research agencies.In France, AgroSup Dijon is one of the first public "Grands Etablissements" for the training of engineers in the fields of Agronomy and Agro-Food. It is part of the French Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry, and of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. Philippe Girardon is an engineering graduate from Ecole Nationale Superieure de Biologie Appliquee a la Nutrition et a l'Alimentation, now part of AgroSup Dijon. He joined Air Liquide (AL) in 1979, as a Food Gases Applications R&D engineer. His early work was in Modified Atmosphere Packaging specializing in gases for sterilization and fermentation. For 39 years he has worked at AL in the Agro-Food domain ensuring Marketing and Development promote gases application technologies to AL Affiliates and customers. He is part of the internal Technical Community Leaders program as an International Fellow. He belongs to the boards of the Professional Equipment Association and life science schools and has published several technical articles. He chaired the Food and CO2 Working Group in the European Industrial Gases Association (EIGA) in charge of watching legislation and elaborating relevant gases safety guidelines and food safety. Prof. Voilley is recognized worldwide for her extensive knowledge of mass transfer in small molecules, such as water or aroma, as a function of complex biological matrix structures, and their relationship with hydration level and processing. She has directed more than 50 PhD dissertations. She co-edited "Flavor: From Food to Behaviors, Wellbeing and Health" (Elsevier, 2016), and Flavour in Food (Elsevier, 2006). Prof. Voilley is Member of the French Academy of Agriculture.
