Development of an energy efficient pumpkin seed mill

On the initiative of the company Paar and the technology centre Deutschlandsberg three Austrian enterprises, two Slovenian enterprises and one Bulgarian enterprise joined together with the Institute for machine elements at the TU Graz for a research project. With the financial funding of the Austrian research support society a completely new constructed pumpkin seed mill has been developed. It has reduced the amount of energy needed to less than a third and also considerably improved the food safety requirements and the quality of the milling material.

The Institute for Systemic Development supported the project partners with developing the research project and setting up the cooperation. It also followed the realisation of the project.
