Improving Safety and Sustainability in the Food Industry

Apply Process Safety Principles to Food Processing

The food industry can benefit in many ways from applying process safety principles like inherently safer design to its facilities.

Extracting Sustainable Food Sources

Chemical separation processes, such as liquid-liquid extraction, can provide sustainable alternatives in food production that support the principles of regenerative agriculture and meet the demands of decarbonization initiatives.

AI-Driven Protein Discovery for Functional Ingredients

The global food system needs novel technologies to cope with the increasing demand for protein-rich foods. Artificial intelligence may provide a path toward creating the next generation of functional protein ingredients.


Best Practices to Extend the Life of Pressure Transmitters

Pressure measurement instrumentation is a critical part of plant infrastructure. Understanding and employing pressure transmitter best practices will maximize the life of these key plant assets.
