The International workshop on production process and test for gelatin, organized by Ministry of Science and Technology of People’s Republic of China, undertaken by the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), was successfully completed on November 22, 2016. More than a dozen government officials, researchers and engineers from different countries, including Ethiopia, Mongolia and Uzbekistan, participated in this 20-days workshop.
This workshop aimed to promote cultural and technological exchanges, enhance mutual understanding between China and the developing countries, and provide technical assistance for the developing countries in the rational use of their livestock resources. Seven main courses were opened in the workshop for improving the understanding about gelatin of trainees, including the production process of gelatin, the properties and applications of gelatin, the standard and testing of gelatin, microbiological test of gelatin, the equipment of gelatin production and operation, bone granular processing, gelatin testing experiments. During the courses of training, representatives from three countries gave presentations on animal husbandry resources of themselves countries, and also shared their viewpoints about the developing trend of gelatin industry. For helping trainees to be further clear about Chinese culture and biological technology, the professors from Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, East China University of Science and Technology, Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences, CAS and Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, CAS were invited to attend this workshop as lecturers, and presented wonderful reports on the Chinese traditional culture and protein separation, respectively. To better present the microbial detection method and gelatin production process, the field trips in three companies, including Devsoon Technology Testing Co. Ltd., Weigao Group Co. Ltd., and Ningxia Xinhaoyuan Biological Polytron Technologies Inc., were carefully managed for the trainees. The trainees experienced the gelatin microbial detection all themselves, and earnestly learned the production process and the post treatment process of gelatin in the production shop.
At the graduation ceremony, all the trainees spoke highly of the international workshop, and offered their sincere appreciation for thoughtful arrangement of Ministry of Science and Technology of People’s Republic of China and the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, CAS. Finally, the trainees expressed that they learned the advanced technology of gelatin and got an important reference for rational utilization of domestic animal husbandry resource through the workshop, and hopefully could develop long-term cooperative relationship in the future with the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, CAS.
