Objective

  1. Develop safe and efficient methods for disinfecting food processing waters, including methods for analyzing for disinfectant chemicals;
  2. Reduce the need for excess chlorine or chlorine dioxide by developing new methods for sterilization or pasteurization of food surfaces e.g., poultry, potato, etc.; and
  3. Reduce the microbial contamination in process fluids e.g., in poultry chillers and chiller brines, by new technologies, and systems of technologies for the removal of the contaminants.
