The 2,074 square feet Bioprocessing Laboratory has three controlled temperature – humidity environment chambers, four controlled temperature chambers of various sizes, drying ovens, and support equipment for research on unit operations such as drying, mixing, grinding, and extraction. Recent studies have involved drying and separation of petals from marigold flowers, storage of ground marigold petals, SFE extraction of oil from pecans, orienting fruit for non-destructive on-line quality detection, and stone milling of mustard seed.
