Experimental setup Duration: 19 September 2019 / 19 March 2020 Summary: The food industry is by far the largest potable water consuming industrial activity per ton of food product. In the operational water footprint assessment one litre of olive oil can generate 1-1.2 litres of wastewater. Olive Oil Wastewater (OOWW) has a high environmental impact and is characterized by its high COD, BOD, suspended solids, high salts content and a very high toxicity phenolic compounds due to which its biological treatment is not feasible. Advanced oxidation technologies that harness the potential of OH radicals are quiet expensive on...

Comparison of the fermenting must containing untreated (control) and PEF treated grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon after 12 hours of maceration Duration: 29 October 2019 / 29 October 2020 Summary: Red wine represents more than 70% of the total wine produced over the world. As compared with the elaboration of white wine, red winemaking requires a stage called maceration-fermentation in which the solid parts of the grape berries remain in contact with the fermenting must for several days (7-10 days). During this stage, polyphenols that are mainly located in the grape skins release to the fermenting must. These compounds are...
