The focus of this research is to provide a sustainable system to manage food production by developing a food preservation system. Drying removes moisture from food so unwanted contaminants can’t permeate into the food, causing it to spoil. Additionally, drying makes food smaller and lighter, making storage easier. Biogenic hydrocarbons are released in the drying
Many people in different countries around the world depend on producing their own food for sustenance and financial stability. In certain countries, there is an overproduction of food items, thereby leading to food waste. This project creates a solution for the problem of food wastes by creating a sustainable solar dryer system that is based
Creating a solar food drying system will lead to sustainable food preservation methods with less waste.
Understanding the side products generated from a pollution-reducing cement coating will determine its safety.
Implementing a solar drying system for melons could combat agricultural food waste in Panama.
The implementation of carbon capture and storage systems (CCS) has played a crucial role in the pursuit of sustainable sources of energy, but the risks of leakages have become a major push for utilizing CO2 as soon as it is produced. This project aims to contribute to CCS by exploring the possibility of simultaneously converting
Photocatalytic cementitious materials are useful in changing environmental properties and may be useful in simultaneously decreasing air pollution. This research seeks to understand how the chemicals in car exhaust are converted over photocatalytic cement materials in an effort to ultimately enhance the conversion of air pollutants to less harmful gases in the presence of light.
