Ice Slurry Shows Promise as an Antimicrobial Aid for Poultry Immersion Chillers
Ice Slurry Shows Promise as an Antimicrobial Aid for Poultry Immersion Chillers

Researchers with the Georgia Tech Research Institute’s Agricultural Technology Research Program have been investigating the use of ice slurry as an alternative chilling medium that may also have antimicrobial properties.

Manager's Corner
Manager's Corner: Leading People and Understanding Culture

One of the things that I enjoy the most about managing the Agricultural Technology Research Program is interacting with people, whether it be internally with colleagues or externally with visitors and stakeholders.

Poultry System Simulation Model: A System-of-Systems Model for Poultry Processing
Poultry System Simulation Model: A System-of-Systems Model for Poultry Processing

Researchers with the Georgia Tech Research Institute’s (GTRI) Agricultural Technology Research Program continue to add modules to their Poultry System Simulation Model. The system-of-systems model for poultry processing simulates plant water usage, wastewater content, and energy consumption to help processors pinpoint areas for production improvements.
