The olive (Olea europaea) is increasingly recognized as a crop of great economic and health importance world-wide. Olive growing in Italy is very important, but there is still a high degree of confusion regarding the genetic identity of cultivars. This book is a source of recently accumulated information on olive trees and on olive oil industry.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Handbook of essentional oils" has contents: Aromatherapy with essential oils, industrial uses of essential oils, encapsulation and other programmed release techniques for essential oils and volatile terpenes, essential oils used in veterinary medicine, trade of essential oils, storage and transport of essential oils,...and other contents.
Oil and gas are the most important non-renewable sources of energy. Exploring, producing and managing these resources in compliance with HSE standards are challenging tasks. New technologies, workflows and procedures have to be implemented.This book deals with some of these themes and describes some of the advanced technologies related to the oil and gas industry from HSE to field management issues. Some new technologies for geo-modeling, transient well testing and digital rock physics are also introduced. There are many more technical topics to be addressed in future books.
The health-promoting effects attributed to olive oil, and the development of the olive oil industry have intensified the quest for new information, stimulating wide areas of research. This book is a source of recently accumulated information. It covers a broad range of topics from chemistry, technology, and quality assessment, to bioavailability and function of important molecules, recovery of bioactive compounds, preparation of olive oil-based functional products, and identification of novel pharmacological targets for the prevention and treatment of certain diseases....
The essential oil industry is under threat from numerous issues at present. Rising
agricultural input costs, particularly petrochemical based fertilizers and fuels are squeezing
farmers’ profit margins. Rising food prices and the increasing value of housing and industrial
land prices is creating competition for land, particularly around populated areas. Adverse
weather conditions and changing climate are creating both short and long term problems.
Poor crop yields are occurring much more regularly than before because of unusually heavy
rain, hail, floods, heat-waves and cold snaps....
Environmental managers, engineers, and scientists who have had experience with food industry
waste management problems have noted the need for a book that is comprehensive in its scope,
directly applicable to daily waste management problems of the industry, and widely acceptable
by practicing environmental professionals and educators.
The book “Advances in Diverse Industrial Applications of Nanocomposites” was well
thought about knitt ing several broad disciplines of nanocomposites in mind. A glance
through the pages of science and engineering literature shows that the use of nanocomposites
for emerging technologies represents one of the most active areas of research
and development throughout the fi elds of chemistry, physics, life sciences, and related
There is increasing political and environmental pressure on industry to clean up the water which it uses in many processes, and to re-use this water where possible. This cleaning is done using specially-developed industrial membranes and this book covers the types and design of membranes, how they work and in which industries they are used. Special attention is paid to the textile, food/ beverage, pharmaceutical, oil and pulp and paper industries where such membranes are in regular use.
In the early 1970s, it was clear that the world economy was facing recession and that
the four-fold increase in crude-oil prices by OPEC, a monetary crisis, and inflation
were the main reasons for such a trend. The four-fold increase in crude-oil prices
in 1974, which was intensified in 1979, is why 1974 and 1979 are called the years
of “the first” and “the second crude-oil shock”, respectively. Increases in crude-oil
prices had an effect on all importing countries, more precisely on their economic
Major oil spills attract the attention of the public and the media. In recent years,
this attention has created a global awareness of the risks of oil spills and the damage
they do to the environment. However, oil is a necessity in our industrial society, and
a major sustainer of our lifestyle. Most of the energy used in Canada and the United
States is for transportation that runs on oil and petroleum products. According to
trends in energy usage, this is not likely to decrease much in the future.
Industrial Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary topic to which
tools of modern biotechnology are applied for finding proper
proportion of raw mix of chemicals, determination of set points,
finding the flow rates etc., This study is significant as it results
in better economy, quality product and control of pollution. The
authors in this book have given only methods of industrial
biotechnology mainly to help researchers, students and chemical
engineers. Since biotechnology concerns practical and diverse
applications including production of new drugs, clearing up
Using an applications perspective Thermodynamic Models for Industrial Applications provides a unified framework for the development of various thermodynamic models, ranging from the classical models to some of the most advanced ones. Among these are the Cubic Plus Association Equation of State (CPA EoS) and the Perturbed Chain Statistical Association Fluid Theory (PC-SAFT). These two advanced models are already in widespread use in industry and academia, especially within the oil and gas, chemical and polymer industries....
Petroleum-based industrial products have gradually replaced products derived from biological materials. However, biologically based products are making a comeback--because of a threefold increase in farm productivity and new technologies.
Biobased Industrial Products envisions a biobased industrial future, where starch will be used to make biopolymers and vegetable oils will become a routine component in lubricants and detergents.
It is difficult to claim to have an in-depth knowledge of a subject if such knowledge is restricted to the present and the recent past. Information and insights on a particular topic from the past can, in a well informed mind, be reprocessed and contribute to the topic in the present and, even more importantly, in the future. This is saying no more than Lewis Carroll’s maxim:
In managing an onsite clinic, Ashley became aware
of studies showing that patients, who were prescribed
medications during a visit, often put off getting their
prescriptions filled. In many cases, this has a detrimental
effect on getting patients well quickly. The solution
Ashley implemented was InstyMeds
. InstyMeds is the
healthcare industry’s first fully automated, ATM-style,
dispenser of acute prescription medications that
dispenses directly to patients at the point-of-care. An
InstyMeds Medications Dispenser is installed in the
Ashley Wellness Center.
Agriculture and forestry are poised on the brink of a quantum leap forward through the further application of exciting new tools such as genomics and transgenic plants. In the near future, it will be possible to produce a higher quantity of improved quality crops than even imagined just a few years ago. In addition to feed and food, it will be possible to provide raw materials for industrial uses. For example, cotton fibers, wood ligno-celluloses, corn carbohydrates, soybean oils, and other plant constituents will be altered via designed changes in metabolic pathways.
