La aplicación&nbsp; excesiva de químicos en la agricultura y el uso de maquinaria en estos procesos incrementa los factores para el aceleramiento del cambio climático. El estudio pretende recabar información bibliográfica en varios países acerca de la agricultura y su incidencia en el cambio climático. Para lo cual es necesario conocer las actividades realizadas en el campo para producir alimentos; y, determinar características de cómo estas actividades impactan en el ambiente. Es fundamental identificar sistemas de producción agrícola empleados y su ocurrencia en el cambio climático. La agricultura orgánica y la agroecología tienen menor impacto que la agricultura convencional y tecnificada.</p> Juan Pablo Aragón ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2018-05-30 2018-05-30 4 5 01 11 DRYING REFINED SUGAR ON THE CONTINUOUS PULSED FLUIDIZED BED DRYER: EXPERIMENTAL STUDY ON THE MAIN TECHNOLOGICAL PARAMETERS DETERMINATION https://ephjournal.com/index.php/aer/article/view/759 <p><strong>.</strong> A continuous pulsed fluidized bed (CPFB) dryer with relocated gas stream was employed to conduct the drying of refined sugar. The experiments were carried out according to the 2-level orthogonal experimental plan, combined with multiple response optimization according to Response Surface Method (RSM) to determine the appropriate parameters (hot air temperature, hot air velocity, pulse frequency, particle mean diameter) in the refined sugar drying process. The appropriate conditions of drying process were identified at 71.5°C of hot air temperature, 2.1 m/s of hot air velocity, 0.55 Hz of pulse frequency and 467mm of particle mean diameter. At these conditions the dried refined sugar reached final moisture content of 0.035% (wet basis), the specific electrical energy and the specific heat value consumption reached 187 Wh/kg product and 1024 kJ/kg product, respectively</p> Bui Trung Thanh Pham Quang Phu Le Hong Long Long Bui Trung Thanh ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2018-05-30 2018-05-30 4 5 12 24
