  1. 1. Aroma characterisation and retention after heat treatment and drying of fruits using extraction and GC-MS analysis

    Author : Rui Ráice; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fruits; Vangueria infausta; Mangifera indica; volatile; aroma; blanching; drying; encapsulation; modelling; GC-MS.;

    Abstract : This study concerns the identification and characterisation of volatile components of fruits, and evaluation of the effect of heat treatment and drying on retention or loss of volatiles of fruits. The investigation included developing a procedure to extract volatile components from the fruit matrix, a purification step, separation, identification and quantification. READ MORE

  3. 3. Indoor air quality and chemical emissions of organic compounds in newly built low-energy preschools

    Author : Josefin Persson; Thanh Wang; Jessika Hagberg; Pim Leonards; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Indoor air quality; volatile organic compounds; brominated flame retardants; organophosphate flame retardants; low-energy preschools; environmental certification; indoor dust; surface wipes;

    Abstract : In 2010, the European Union (EU) introduced the “Energy performance of Buildings” directive, which stipulates that all new buildings must reduce their energy consumption by constructing low-energy buildings. This could be achieved by constructing airtight and energy efficient envelopes with functional building materials such as age-resistant plastic films, insulation and different sealing products.

  4. 4. Formation, ageing and thermal properties of secondary organic aerosol

    Author : Eva U. Emanuelsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : volatile organic compounds; biogenic; anthropogenic; secondary organic aerosol; troposphere; volatility; ozone;

    Abstract : In order to properly represent and predict the effects of aerosol in climate systems, an accurate description of their formation and properties is needed. This thesis describes work done to increase the knowledge of processes and properties of atmospherically relevant secondary organic aerosol (SOA) from both biogenic and anthropogenic origin.

  5. 5. Valorisation of fish waste biomass through recovery of nutritional lipids and biogas

    Author : Betty Mbatia; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; by-products; value addition; EPA; DHA; PUFA; biogas;

    Abstract : Commercial fish catch in Eastern Africa is dominated by Nile Perch. Of the fish that is processed for human consumption, 30-40% is wasted. Currently, these wastes are not fully utilized; they are sold off at low price, converted to low valued products or left to decompose leading to environmental pollution and wastage of bioresource.
