project description

                                                                   

The ENGENDER project aims to realize a breakthrough in drying of food ingredient materials using a new compact drying technology based on the Radial Multizone Dryer (RMD). In the project the RMD technology will be developed at the pilot-scale and design rules for industrial demonstration will be described. The expected energy savings are estimated up to 30% compared to conventional spray drying and will be confirmed for a selected set of model systems, that is, test materials.
