- of the third edition, while maintaining an emphasis on nutrition and, in particular, the effects of
processing on the nutritive value of the products as compared with that of the raw cereals.
However, some new material has been introduced, notably sections dealing with extrusion cooking
and the use of cereals for animal feed, and the section on industrial uses for cereals has been considerably
A change in the fourth edition, which readers of earlier editions will notice, is the order in which
the material is presented.
An integrated gasification process was developed for an Ohio-based kraft pulp mill to produce
liquid transportation fuels from biomass and coal. Black liquor byproduct from the pulp mill is
co-gasified with coal to generate high quality syngas for further synthesis to dimethyl ether
(DME) and/or Fischer-Tropsch fuels. A Texaco gasifier was chosen as the focal point for this
design. Whenever possible, energy is recovered throughout to generate heat, steam, and power.
Mass and energy balances were performed for individual process components and the entire
There are many factors accounting for losses after rice harvest and occurs as
as early as pre-harvest period and the next stage from harvesting to storage. the
the appearance of cracks in the rice-harvest period reduces the yield.
Grain can be damaged or lost quantity and quality due to inappropriate
practice in the sun time, harvest, harvest, dam / mechanical drying, loading / unloading,
transport, milling and processing storage conditions.
Milling process is an important stage because it produces the final product (white rice).
Post production lines of rice.
Improvements in ethanol’s energy consumption have continued since large-
scale commercial production began in the 1970s. The process has become
more efficient at using the starch in the corn kernel, approaching the theo-
retical limit of about 2.85 gallons of ethanol per bushel. Energy for conver-
sion has fallen from as high as 70,000 Btu’s per gallon in the late 1970s
(Wang, August 1999) to 40,000 Btu’s or less for modern dry mills and to
40,000-50,000 Btu’s for wet mills. Modern energy-saving technology and
process optimization account for the improvement....
Though the savings from technological improvements are significant, they
tend to be small compared with fluctuations in the net cost of corn, the main
ethanol feedstock. This is illustrated in table 2, which presents data on corn
costs and profits from the coproduct DDGS (distiller’s dried grains with
solubles) in dry-mill ethanol production from 1981-2004. Since 1981, sales
of DDGS have recovered nearly half the cost of each bushel of corn used to
produce ethanol, peaking in 1986, when over 66 percent of the feedstock
cost was recovered this way.
Reduced whole rice grain yield due to cracking is one of the major issues that directly
reduce income and availability of staple food to the farmers in the Mekong River Delta.
The cracking or partial fissuring of rice kernels may occur right in the paddy field due to
incorrect harvesting time/practice, improper post-harvest drying conditions and
inappropriate milling operations. This project aims to improve the quality and value of the
rice, through an integrated approach which encompasses farmers, millers, service
providers and extension workers and education institution....
