Food Preservation Process Design (Food Science and by Dennis R. Heldman

By Dennis R. Heldman

The renovation strategies for meals have advanced over numerous centuries, yet contemporary realization to non-thermal applied sciences means that a brand new measurement of swap has been initiated.

The new measurement to be emphasised is the rising applied sciences for protection of meals and the necessity for sound base of knowledge to be constructed as inputs for systematic approach layout. the point of interest of the paintings is on technique layout, and emphasizes the necessity for quantitative details as inputs to method design.

The strategies provided construct at the winning historical past of thermal processing of meals and use many examples from these kinds of maintenance tactics. upkeep of meals through refrigeration, freezing, focus and dehydration aren't addressed at once, yet a few of the recommendations to be provided may practice. major consciousness is given to the destiny of foodstuff caliber attributes in the course of the upkeep technique and the concept that of optimizing approach parameters to maximise the retention of foodstuff quality.

The Contribution of Technology to Added Value by António S.C Fernandes

By António S.C Fernandes

There is a large consensus that advent of know-how to the creation approach contributes to an total financial worth, besides the fact that, confusion among know-how, wisdom and capital frequently makes price calculations ambiguous and non-objective. The Contribution of expertise to extra worth addresses not just this factor of definition but additionally offers a construction version to evaluate the price contribution of expertise in the creation process.

A rationalization  of primary semantics  offers an important taxonomy for know-how dependence, and permits figuring out and modeling of ways wisdom, know-how and capital separately give a contribution to construction and to price including. a brand new know-how dependence taxonomy is proposed and assessed following chapters explaining development types, the KTC version and expertise index values.

Balancing theoretical wisdom with real-world information and functions The Contribution of expertise to additional Value clarifies the difficulty of worth including for more than a few various viewpoints and reasons; from educational to and repair throughout engineering, economics and administration.
