  • Publication number: 20200128837
    Abstract: Structures and methods of using a microwave pasteurization device, as well as related non-linear waveguides. In some embodiments, an in-shell egg pasteurization device with a non-linear slotted waveguide. In some embodiments the non-linear slotted waveguide comprises shaped waveguide applicators. The shaped waveguide applicators may employ oval, lens, or plum shaped non-linear slots to improve efficiency and efficacy of pasteurizing in-shell eggs, live oysters, tomatoes, or blueberries while maintianly the quality and functional attributes of the raw product.

  • Publication number: 20160340590
    Abstract: A method for processing non-lignocellulosic waste comprises pre-treating the non-lignocellulosic waste by enzymatic hydrolysis to yield a pre-treated non-lignocellulosic waste subjecting the pre-treated non-lignocellulosic waste to microwave hydrothermal carbonization to yield at least one of a hydrochar and a biocrude liquor. A system for processing non-lignocellulosic waste includes an enzymatic hydrolysis station for receiving non-lignocellulosic waste and generating a treated non-lignocellulosic waste, and a microwave hydrothermal carbonization station downstream of the enzymatic hydrolysis station for receiving the treated non-lignocellulosic waste from the enzymatic hydrolysis station and generating at least one of a hydrochar and a biocrude liquor.
