In a market driven by cost and the need to produce product free from infection, whilst using fewer chemicals, ultraviolet (UV) disinfection is adopted increasingly for a variety of applications.
Calculating radiation exposures during use of (14)C-labeled nutrients, food components, and biopharmaceuticals to quantify metabolic behavior in humans.September 4, 2010 11:38 am | by J Agric Food Chem | Comments
(14)C has long been used as a tracer for quantifying the in vivo human metabolism of food components, biopharmaceuticals, and nutrients. Minute amounts (< or =1 x 10 (-18) mol) of (14)C can be measured with high-throughput (14)C-accelerator mass spectrometry (HT (14)C-AMS) in...
With a commitment to local dairy production, Westby Cooperative Creamery has one foot planted in tradition and a keen eye on the future.
Authentic modular systems can be rearranged, replaced, combined and interchanged, whereas most modular systems are pre-engineered, offering little to no flexibility.
Quantum Tubers has spent a decade developing minitubers for seed potatoes that can be produced with shortened propagation times and, consequently, lower production costs.
Elevated CO2 increases plant uptake of organic and inorganic N in the desert shrub Larrea tridentata.August 28, 2010 11:38 pm | by Oecologia (Berl) | Comments
Resource limitations, such as the availability of soil nitrogen (N), are expected to constrain continued increases in plant productivity under elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO(2)). One potential but under-studied N source for supporting increased plant growth under...
Properly diagnosing the root cause of a heat exchanger failure may save you the costs associated with recurring failures, system downtime or full replacement.
Handling chemical powders is more complex than moving product from point A to B: Systems and processes that ensure safe and efficient processing are just as important.
Corus replaced multiple air pollution control systems with one Spooner Anguil regenerative thermal oxidizer, and in doing so, eliminated nearly 8,000 tons of carbon per year.
The Koch Membrane reverse osmosis systems used by the Village of Tequesta have performed almost flawlessly, requiring little maintenance and no cleaning until they passed their eighth birthday.
Migrating from a paper-based to a computerized process is only part of the accounting solution; true automation results when accounting systems deliver built-in intelligence.
We can tune PID controllers, but what about tuning the operator?
After BP famously branded itself as “beyond petroleum,” BlueFire Ethanol Fuels is moving “beyond ethanol,” starting with a new brand name: BlueFire Renewables.
Reducing the size and plastic content of wide-mouth, bulk containers pays off for food manufacturers, club stores, grocery chains, consumers and the environment.
