Development of Efficient Technology for Grain Disinfection (Agrobiotechnology)

Project Head
Irina Potoroko, D.Sc. (Engineering), Professor
Food Technology and Biotechnology
Developing grain disinfection technology (inactivation of microflora, minimizing the risks of mycotoxins’ accumulation, etc.) and provision of its efficient safe storage
  • Determining principles of minimising the risks of accumulation of mycotoxins in grain mass of various crops;
  • Determining the algorithm of impact that ultrasound effect imparts on the main ingredients of grain;
  • Forming the model of ultrasonic exposure at the stages of primary grain treatment during the postharvest period in order to regulate the processes of accumulation of mycotoxins and their metabolites;
  • Introducing disinfection technology under conditions of grain storage in elevator;
  • Carrying out monitoring of mycointoxication in the process of storage under different output parameters of the ultrasonic exposure, and determining optimal exposure modes;
  • Reflecting intermediate results of the research in scientific and guidance literature.
