  1. 1. Analyses of microbial community in nutrient solution with biofertilizer and risk assessment of establishment of pathogens

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi

    Author : Julia Södergren; [2020]
    Keywords : Biofertilizer; hydroponic; 16S rRNa sequencing; challenge testing; calorimetry; applied microbiology; teknisk mikrobiologi; Agriculture and Food Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The societal interest for a more sustainable and circular food production is increasing. Hydroponic farming is an alternative way of growing vegetables that can bring farming into urban environments, reducing long transports of food. In parallel, the focus in waste treatment is being more directed toward resource recovery. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of a Near Infrared Spectroscopy Model for Prediction of Fibre Compounds in Alfalfa

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi

    Author : Christina Andersen; [2020]
    Keywords : alfalfa; lucerne; medicago sativa; green protein powder; NIR; near infrared spectroscopy; model development; matlab; PLS; partial least squares; PCA; principal component analysis; SNV; standard normal variate; fibre prediction; TDF; total dietary fibre; applied microbiology; teknisk mikrobiologi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Background: This project investigates if it is possible to develop a calibration model from near infrared (NIR) spectroscopic measurements, for determination of the amount and type of fibre fractions within protein powder produced from the legume alfalfa, without performing wet experiments. Alfalfa is also known as Medicago sativa and lucerne, but is in this project further referred to as alfalfa. READ MORE
