ISOLATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF MICROBES ASSOCIATED WITH SPOILAGE CANNED FOOD SOLANUM LYCOPERSICUM

ABSTRACTLactic acid bacteria (LAB) associated with gaseous spoilage of modified – atmosphere – packaged, raw, tomato – marinated boiler meat striped were identified on the basis of a restriction fragment.Lactic acid bacteria are the dominant spoilage organisms in vacuum or modifies atmosphere – packaged meat products. Spoilage is mainly caused by lactobacillus. The activities of these organisms at stationary phase produce the compounds associated with sensory spoilage.The present stud...

Challenges construction estimators encounter when estimating construction projects

In a construction project as in any other projects, one of the first steps is to obtain the cost estimate for the project. For a construction project to be successful, the contractor has to first get a cost estimate. This will be the basis (the foundation) on which his tender, and consequently his execution of the whole project will be based. A defunct cost estimate may therefore lead to a bad job execution. On the other hand over-estimation for a project may prevent the contractor from winni...

THE USE OF HYDROGEN AS A HARMLESS SOURCE OF ENERGY

ABSTRACTHydrogen is an energy carrier that can transform our fossil fuel dependent economy into a hydrogen economy; t can provide an emission free transportation fuel.  Hydrogen has the highest combustion energy per batter relative to any other fuel. It is more efficient on a weight basis than fuels used currently. It offers 2-3 times more energy than most other common fuels.  It combines readily with oxygen releasing considerable energy as heat and water Hydrogen storage and transp...
