Biological and Food Processing
Biological and food process engineering researchers working in the department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering.
In the coming decades biomass will play a critical role in sustainable development, serving as our only renewable resource for carbon-based chemicals, and providing a practical alternative to petrochemical transportation fuels.
Provide Guidance to Small Scale Pellet Producers
Inactivation of pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms by using novel processing technologies such as Ozone, Electrolyzed oxidizing (EO) water, Irradiation, Pulsed UV-light, Super critical carbon dioxide.
The development of biophysical models and methods to rationally predict and control the behavior of biological organisms. We design, construct, and optimize synthetic genetic systems for biotechnological purposes with applications in synthetic biology, metabolic engineering, and biologic therapeutics.
