Table 2 lists several compounds produced by anaerobes and some of the microorganisms that can produce significant quantities of the product. The pathways by which these products are produced have been investigated many of the well-known industrially important pathways such as the Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas pathway are described in detail elsewhere (2,6,7). Ethanol is produced in large quantities for use as a motor fuel in several countries (2,68). Methane is often produced by mixed cultures as a product of anaerobic digestion of waste materials. Lactic acid is
Once the pressure falls below the value set by the tensioned spring, the spindle should return to its original position. However, the valve may stick open if waste material lodges on the valve seat and plant operators may interfere with the release pressure setting. Bursting rupture discs may be used as an alternative and are of a more hygienic design than some valves (Leaver and Hambleton, 1992).
Environmental laws and regulations including permits are reviewed in this chapter. Included are the Federal Clean Air Act Amendment (CAAA), the Federal Clean Water Act (CWA) regulations, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) or, as it is also known, the Solid Waste Disposal Act. Also discussed along with the regulations under OSHAare the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER). 2.3 Solid Waste Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) (Solid Waste Disposal Act) was originally enacted by Congress in 1976 and amended several times subsequently. The 1984 amendments set deadlines for enforcing the regulations. They also placed restrictions on disposal of wastes on land and forced tighter regulation of hazardous wastes. Congress also sought to encourage the recycling of recoverable material. The RCRA included the statements that Methods are available to separate usable materials from...
The easiest technique is to utilize one of the large plastic fermenters normally used for primary fermentation of wine (a plastic trash can with a lid). As noted earlier, the biggest single drawback to these fermenters is that if they become scratched (from over-vigorous agitation or stirring, for example), they can become very difficult or impossible to sanitize adequately. Fortunately, they are cheap.
Due to the wide range of enzymes produced, the ability to grow rapidly at high temperature and the production of anti-microbial compounds as above-mentioned, R. oligosporus has recently received attention in other fields of applied microbiology, such as sufu production (Han et al., 2003), agro-industrial solid waste treatment (Christen et al., 2000), the production of phenolic compounds from agricultural wastes (McCue et al., 2003 Correia et al., 2004b Vattem et al., 2004) and bioremediation of heavy metals (Beolchini et al., 2003 Othman & Amin, 2003 Yu et al., 2003 Bishnoi & Garima, 2005).
After the slicing process, the product is no longer protected by the casing (dry fermented sausages) or by the food manufacturing process (dry-cured ham). The exposure surface of the product to the environment is largely increased and subsequently, rehydration, dehydration, and oxidation significantly decrease shelf life. Plastic packaging becomes essential to delay these processes. In general, the sliced product will exchange water with the environment at a faster rate, resulting in detrimental changes. Similarly, the unfavorable effect of oxygen will be enhanced. Therefore, the requirements for packaging materials and packaging technologies are high water vapor barrier, high barrier to oxygen, and reduced headspace, or headspace composition with low oxygen levels. Among the available packaging technologies, vacuum packaging and modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) are traditionally used for the preservation of sliced fermented and cured meat products. Present and future trends...
The exhaust gas from the amino acid digestion should be treated to remove the acid. Solid waste such as the residual cakes and liquid waste should also be properly treated. The waste should be classified, with the easily spoiled waste picked up and discarded every day. In the waste placement site, generation of offensive odor or harmful gases, and the multiplication of harmful animals and insects should be avoided. The waste must not contaminate the food and the floor, or get in contact with the food contact surface and the water source.
Solid wastes are produced in some processes before inoculation. In breweries, where malted grain is still used, coarse screens or 'whirlpool' centrifuges may be used to remove spent grain from the wort after it is mashed. About 5 kg (wet weight) of grain are produced Most organic-waste materials may be degraded biologically. This process may be achieved aerobically or anaerobically in a number of ways. The most widely used aerobic processes are trickling filters, rotating disc contactors, activated sludge processes and their modifications. The anaerobic processes (digestion, filtration and sludge blankets) are used both in the treatment of specific wastewaters and in sludge conditioning.
The cost of molasses will be very competitive when compared with pure carbohydrates. However, molasses contains many impurities and molasses-based fermentations will often need a more expensive and complicated extraction purification stage to remove the impurities and effluent treatment will be more expensive because of the unutilized waste materials which are still present. Some new processes may require critical evaluation before the final decision is made to use molasses as the main carbon substrate.
Another alternative for water deionization, is continuous deionization (CDI). This technologically innovative deionization process was developed by Millipore Corporation and is currently marketed by Ionpure. It uses electricity across ion exchange membranes and resins to remove ions from a continuous water stream. No chemical regeneration is required. A waste stream, carrying the rejected ions, of less than 10 of the feed water is required.
