Advanced Sterilization Technologies Unwrap Packaging Potential

Consumers’ desire for nutritious foods and industry interest in safe, more energy-efficient, high-throughput processes have led to advanced food sterilization technologies such as microwave-assisted thermal sterilization (MATS) and pressure-assisted thermal sterilization technologies (PATS). In fact, sterilization of in-packaged foods using microwave systems has already been commercialized in Europe and Japan.

The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has elected Juming Tang as a new member. This announcement was made by NAE President John L. Anderson on Tuesday, February 9th, 2021. Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education.”  Dr. Tang, and other members of his newly elected class, will be formally inducted during the NAE’s annual meeting on Oct. 3, 2021.
