Elea would like to welcome Vanessa Völkel who has recently joined the team. She is a Bioengineer in Agriculture and Food Industry and will support the R&D department with focus on biotechnology.

In the last 6 months she was one of our students and has worked on the influence of different process parameters on the behavior of bacteria cultures. Before her studies of bioengineering she successfully completed her apprenticeship as a dairy lab assistant. With this experience she will help to build up our own laboratory. In the future one of our new focuses is the investigation of PEF on microbial processes such as fermentation for industrial applications.
