The high population growth rate, global climate change, the threat of declining biomass production, and awareness of organic farming have emphasized the importance of developing human resources (HR) to address challenges and issues in the post-harvest scope. This HR can reduce yield losses, improve product quality, and increase value-added, competitiveness, and income for farmers or local cultivators. It is expected to achieve optimal biomass production through effective and efficient bioresource engineering. The Post-Harvest Technology Study Program at the School of Life Sciences and Technology, Bandung Institute of Technology (SITH ITB), is focused on post-harvest handling and processing with an integrated bioproduct system development approach from various aspects. The aim is to enhance value-added, improve product quality, and overcome post-harvest losses in agricultural, forestry, and aquaculture products.
The main technical competencies of Post-Harvest Technology are directed towards processing, preservation, manipulation, and maximizing harvest results by employing engineering principles to achieve optimal energy and material efficiency, as well as applying various available technologies.
