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.
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. I’d like to share a rather basic framework from the book Tribal Leadership by Dave Logan that I have found useful for leading people and understanding culture within an organization.
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.
ATRP funds a number of small-scale research projects each year. These “exploratory” projects investigate a highly unconventional idea that, if successful, could lead to significant improvements over current systems and/or processes.
John Pierson is a Principal Research Engineer at ATRP and the Principal Investigator for Dynamic Filtration and Stormwater Management research projects.
ATRP is excited about its plans to participate in the 2017 International Production & Processing Expo, scheduled for January 31-February 2, 2017, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
In recent years, we have seen many instances where foodborne illnesses have been traced back to specific products, triggering recalls of products and investigations into production practices.
ATRP provides no-cost technical assistance to Georgia-based firms and individuals in the poultry industry.
