Research Location

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Program Type



The condensing temperatures in a recirculation system and the inlet gas temperatures for the dryer can be adjusted to affect the product humidity and the energy use.  The outcomes of this project will improve the understanding of the three-way life cycle consideration of product quality, operating energy use and embodied energy, enhancing the ability to do greenhouse gas accounting.
