Fight Climate Change!
Under Corona we have lost sight of climate change a little, floods and fires in Germany,
Europe, USA and Australia painfully show what our main focus should be.
Hydrogen. Industry can contribute to slowing climate change by using fuel cell trucks
with zero emissions. We asked the head of logistics at the EMMI dairy group (CH)
about their first experiences with the Hyundai fuel cell truck. The attempt was made
possible because the Swiss federal government exempts the project participants from
the heavy load tax thanks to zero emissions. Despite the higher costs for the hydrogen,
it will be almost a zero-sum game in the end, said M. von Ballmoos.
Hardness test. “Our test device HPE III Fff has different buttons that depend on the
type of the test items are used. Whether broccoli, potatoes or fruit such as melons,
bananas or blueberries, we can cover everything with this device, ”said Katrin Shen,
who runs the Bareiss company with her cousin Oliver Wirth. The hardness test can, for
example, determine exactly the right time for market readiness.
Overpressure. Dr. Lena Schneider from Freudenberg Filtration Technologies explains
the TPU 500: it is a modular overpressure system that reliably protects liquid products in
industrial storage tanks from contamination. A contamination-free layer of air above the
product prevents foreign particles from entering via the outside air during the emptying
Gluten. The Brabender GlutoPeak is a relatively new quick test procedure and determines
the aggregation behaviour and thus the gluten quality within 5 – 10 minutes.
Protein. Michael Jakob of LECO shows a comparison of the new LECO protein/nitrogen
analyzers 828/928 series.
Agave syrup. What makes agave syrup so special, what are the advantages and
disadvantages compared to other sweeteners, and how is the authenticity ensured?
Markus Krieger of QSI Bremen explains the details.
Saccharides. Brigitte Bollig elaborates on new methods for High-speed analysis of
monosaccharides and disaccharides using evaporative light scattering detector.
I wish you a nice read.
