Catania

Sede di Catania The labs supply services to private and public organizations which are specialized in the production and distribution of food farming products as well as dealing with their traceability, safety, biodiversity and certification of origin. The Catania site, as well as being the co-ordination, managing and training centre, it also is the "control room" responsible for the  www.pstsicilia.it,www.pstsiciliagroalimentare.it. websites. This sites are in actual fact the main communication tool with which the PSTS gives visibility to its activities, the result coming from them, the technologies, services and nevertheless the  amount spent for those  projects.

The food farming portal gathers more than 360 publications, all accessible online, as well as an updated  collection of laws and newsletters concerning the industry. The several links available enable the user to easily deepen the main theme. The technological innovation portal  for the food farming organizations, built thanks to PON funding, is a technological and informative tool, subdivided in areas of interest, which allows companies to easily find information about the search they are doing and the latest innovations and technology transfers to improve food production and processes.

Quality:
gathers all the national laws and European community legislation concerning the specific bindings about the introduction and employment of goods in the common market, laying down the basis of common warranty  and public auditing; the voluntary regulation which defines the deployment ways, additional standards of product warranty and certifications.

Materials:  contains a report on plastic materials used in agriculture and in food packaging with a highlight on new biodegradable plastic materials.

Technologies: contains a report on traditional and innovative technologies for the production of cereal, citrus fruits, fruit & vegetable as well as the fishing industry.

IT: offers an analysis of the state of the art software  available both on national and international territory, as well as a chart on which are the most used in the food farming industry. 

Biotechnologies: contains several applications dealing with bio molecular techniques and genetic engineering.
