Bioethanol Manufacturers Work To Improve Safety And Efficiency

[fa icon="calendar'] May 4, 2017 10:06:00 AM / by Rittal Enclosures posted in Rittal Enclosures, Enclosures, industrial safety, bioethanol

Bioethanol is an alcohol created through the fermentation of carbohydrates produced in sugar or starch crops such as corn, sugarcane, or sweet sorghum. In the United States, most of the bioethanol produced is made from corn; in Brazil, the world’s second largest bioethanol producer, the dominant feedstock is sugar cane. Although research is underway and a few plants have been built to create cellulosic ethanol by fermenting materials such as agricultural residue, algae, wood processing waste, yard and vegetative waste, food processing waste, etc., field corn is the feedstock used to create 98 percent of the bioethanol produced in the United States.1

Food & Beverage Industry: Hygienic Design Deliver Cleanliness And Compliance

[fa icon="calendar'] Apr 27, 2017 1:25:00 PM / by Rittal Enclosures posted in Food & Beverage manufacturing, Hygienic design, Enclosures

In food and beverage (F&B) production facilities around the world, cleaning and sanitization are just as vital to an organization’s success as the taste and texture of the products they produce. Although cleaning adds no direct value to a product, the cost of failing to do it properly can be enormous, both in terms of company reputation and the risk of spreading potentially deadly illnesses. Even when working  hard to operate in compliance with the strictest standards, U.S. F&B producers are forced to recall thousands of products each year, typically for one of three reasons: undeclared allergens (such as the presence of milk, wheat, peanuts or soy that don’t appear on the label), pathogens like E.coli, salmonella or listeria, or physical contamination.
