  • Oil palm fiber

    Oil palm fiber is produced from empty fruit bunch that are considered as waste after the extraction oil palm fruits. During the manufacturing process of palm fiber , EFB( empty fruit bunches) are shredded, separated, refined and dried. The manufacturing process does not involved chemical process or exposure. Hence the palm fibre is clean ...

  • Innovations in fruit packing: a slow kiwifruit packing line and a robotic apple packer

    We briefly review the published advances which have been made in the fruit packing process and present two innovations; firstly, a novel packing line for kiwifruit and secondly, an automated apple packing system. The underlying principle of the novel packing line is to run it slowly enough that each stage of the packing process can operate optimally while minimising damage to the fruit. Adequate ...

  • Potassium uptake and partitioning relative to dry matter accumulation in cotton cultivars differing in maturity

    Dry matter may accumulate faster in fruit of earlier maturing cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) cultivars than in later cultivars, requiring more rapid K uptake and/or partitioning to developing bolls. Faster K uptake may require higher K fertility. We examined K uptake and partitioning relative to dry matter accumulation during boll filling of two cultivars contrasting in maturity, under two K ...

  • Failure sources in R&D consortia: the case of mobile service development

    This study reveals the processes through which firms can cope with sources of failure in R&D consortia in emerging high-tech markets. We use a single case design, focusing on mobile service development to investigate the value-creating and value-dissipating activities in a R&D consortium. We collected longitudinal data on the collaborative processes in the alliance through semi-structured ...
