Useful guide to solving problems of deficient biomass in wastewater treatment plantsStrategies for using microbes for biogas, controlling filamentous organisms, floc formation, odor reduction, sludge management and more Written by a leading wastewater biologist with many years' experience in plant operation, this book is a guide to understanding and enhancing existing microbial populations in wastewater treatment. It is a practical book that addresses operational problems arising from deficiencies in biomass and shows how these situations can be recognized and corrected. After presenting background on major wastewater microbes, the text explains the types of bacteria used in bioaugmentation and the nutrients, enzymes and growth factors needed to solve processing problems and achieve operational goals, for example, the conversion of starches such as cellulose to soluble sugars. Using numerous case studies, the text focuses on the treatment functions performed by augmented microbes: improved anaerobic biogas production, control of undesired filamentous organisms growth, floc formation, nitrification, odor control, resistance to toxicity, sludge reduction, and many more.

Peanuts: Bioactives and Allergens

Investigates the chemistry and bioactivity of the peanut as a food ingredientClarifies the causes of health effects in the human diet, both positive and negativePresents technical strategies to increase peanuts' value and reduce risks With the peanut representing an ever-increasing component of the global diet, the current book presents a scientific analysis of the two main and dichotomous properties of peanuts: allergenicity and health. The volume provides a technical explanation of the bioactive nutrients and dietary benefits of the peanut. It also reviews and analyzes the evidence implicating peanuts as a food allergen. Moving beyond nutritional science to food technology and engineering, the book demonstrates how genetic, pre-harvest, post-harvest and processing technologies can be applied to increase the nutraceutical value of peanuts and mitigate their risks.

Explains bioactive and biobased materials used for food packagingInvestigates migration, controlled release, edible coatings and filmsCovers preservation and safety of many packaged foods This engineering book brings together two of the key strands in food packaging: active packaging and natural, often biobased, components. The text investigates the chemistry, effects and technical incorporation of bioactives into different forms of packaging. Specifically, chapters focus on techniques for impregnating natural substances into conventional and biodegradable food packaging materials with an emphasis on their antioxidant and antimicrobial functions. Oxygen scavengers, plant extracts, essential oils, enzymes, phytochemicals, polysaccharides are investigated. Chapters discuss how bioactives are combined with packaging to suppress microbes and improve the quality of meat, seafood, dairy and cereal products. How bioactives affect packaging development, such as scale-up, fabrication and labeling is discussed, as are European and U.S. regulations.

Engineering Fundamentals of Ring Spinning/Twisting, Over-end Unwinding and Two-for-One Twisting in Textile Processes

Essential theory for understanding and modifying dynamic elements of high-speed yarn spinning, unwinding and twistingTroubleshoot and correct problems in fibers and machinery caused by very rapid throughput Using basic physics and engineering principles, this volume analyzes dynamic forces in three processes critical for textile production: O-ring spinning, unwinding and twisting. The book offers a review of approaches for modeling the processes and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each. Detailed analyses are given for the dynamics of ballooning yarns, instabilities due to acceleration, and the many interacting parameters that affect tension. The theory presented is linked to practical questions such as how to prevent broken yarns and reduce equipment downtime with an emphasis on ways to improve process design and achieve higher throughput. This technical book furnishes the calculations needed to understand and optimize a number of textile production processes, including texturing and warping.
