New energy-efficient food packaging process subject of E3T webinar

The next webinar from the Emerging Technologies Showcase highlights Microwave Assisted Thermal Sterilization, You are leaving WAPA.gov. Jan. 21, at 11:00 AM Mountain Time.

Microwave Assisted Thermal Sterilization™ (MATS™) is an improved food preservation technology for processing high-moisture, low-acid perishable products in containers. Packaged foods treated with this process is shelf stable for prolonged periods at ambient temperatures. Improvements include dramatically reduced excess process heating time, resulting in superior product quality and nutritional attributes. Currently, energy engineers are working with food scientists to compare the energy intensities of MATS™ with conventional process technologies.

A question and answer session follows the presentation.
