PIGSITE 27/01/17 Evaluation of Electrostatic Particle Ionization Technology for Decreasing Airborne Pathogens in Pigs. Influenza A virus (IAV), porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) and Staphylococcus aureus are important swine pathogens capable of being transmitted via aerosols.
The electrostatic particle ionization system (EPI) consists of a conductive line that emits negative ions that charge particles electrically resulting in the settling of airborne particles onto surfaces and potentially decreasing the risk of pathogen dissemination, write Carmen Alonso et al, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Minnesota, US. Among all infectious agents affecting swine, airborne pathogens are the most costly and difficult to control (Hyslop 1971). Porcine reproductive respiratory syndrome (PRRS), influenza A (IA), foot and mouth disease (FMD), classical swine fever (CSF) and porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) viruses are important swine pathogens that spread via aerosols (Sta¨rk 1999). 2 Materials and methods Table 1. 2.2 Aerosol generation.
FOODONLINE 15/12/16 Food Irradiation Technologies: Principles, Commercial Advantages, And Limitations. By Tatiana Koutchma Ph.D., research scientist, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Food irradiation has proven to be a safe and effective non-thermal process for enhancing food safety and extending shelf life of a wide variety of foods.
Nearly 50 countries have approved or allow food irradiation, although the foods and doses can differ by country. Gamma irradiation technology was patented more than a century ago (in 1906) and has been one of the first non-thermal technologies thoroughly tested, validated, and adopted by medical and food industry over the past 60 years. Despite this, there is a lot of misunderstanding and concerns associated with the consumer acceptance, transport, storage, occupational hazards, and disposal of radiation sources.

Key Words Kale, Leaf area, Phyllochron, Rape, Swedes, Turnips Forage brassicas are widely used in New Zealand and Australia to supplement pasture fed at times of low growth or poor quality caused by cool winter temperatures or summer droughts.
Yield potential of these forage brassicas differ because of differences in crop growth rate and duration. Trial description.

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. L'irradiation des aliments consiste à exposer des aliments à des rayonnements ionisants afin de réduire le nombre de micro-organismes qu'ils contiennent. C'est une méthode controversée de conservation des aliments, mais très utilisée. Ce procédé a été autorisé par la Food and Drug Administration, le Département de l'Agriculture des États-Unis et accepté par l'OMS pour l'alimentation humaine après des recherches scientifiques extensives. Dénominations[modifier | modifier le code] L'irradiation des aliments est aussi dénommée ionisation des aliments ou pasteurisation à froid, respectivement parce qu'exposant l'aliment à un rayonnement ionisant et parce qu'il ne suppose pas de traitement thermique, tout en visant la conservation des aliments.
On parle également de radioconservation des aliments. Ces deux derniers termes sont également utilisés car plus positifs aux yeux du public qu'irradiation. Procédé[modifier | modifier le code] Food irradiation. The international Radura logo, used to show a food has been treated with ionizing radiation. Food irradiation is the process of exposing foodstuffs to a source of energy capable of stripping electrons from individual atoms in the targeted material (ionizing radiation). The radiation can be emitted by a radioactive substance or generated by high-energy accelerators including X-ray converters.
Irradiated food does not become radioactive. Food irradiation is criticized because of the potential for irradiation to initiate chemical changes that will be different from the chemical changes due to heating food (Unique Radiolytic Products), and the potential danger of these substances. Due to the criticism and the associated public pressure, the regulations that are placed upon ingratiated food as well as food allowed to be irradiated, vary greatly from country to country.
