TWO-STAGE HETEROTROPHIC AND PHOTOTROPHIC CULTURE TECHNOLOGY FOR MICROALGAL BIOFUEL PRODUCTION
Microalgae are attractive feedstocks for producing renewable biofuels. In this dissertation, I developed a two-stage heterotrophic and phototrophic microalgae culture system for biofuel production. Heterotrophic cultures ...
POLYMERIC-BASED MULTILAYER FOOD PACKAGING FILMS FOR PRESSURE-ASSISTED AND MICROWAVE-ASSISTED THERMAL STERILIZATION
Advanced food technologies such as Microwave-Assisted (MATS) and Pressure-Assisted Thermal Sterilization (PATS) of foods have the advantage of reducing processing times and the detrimental effects on food quality. However, ...
Effect of deficit irrigation on yield, quality and grower returns of native spearmint and hops in Washington State
This study analyzed the effects of water stress levels on the yield, quality, water use efficiency and grower returns of drip irrigated native spearmint and four subsurface drip irrigated hop cultivars: Mt. Hood, Columbus, ...
DISINFESTATION OF DRIED FRUITS USING RADIO FREQUENCY ENERGY
The goal of this research is to develop radio frequency (RF) treatments for pest control in dried fruits. The dielectric properties of five dried fruits were determined at RF and microwave (MW) frequencies and temperatures ...
