1. Studies on Mechanical Properties and Biodegradation of Edible Food Wrapper from Banana Peel Anniyyappa Umapathi Santhoskumar, Ramu Vaishnavi, Thavasimani Karunakaran, Natarajan Jaya chitra Edible Packaging are the most useful alternative for Secondary product packaging, reduces waste, easy disposal and to create novel applications for stability, quality, safety, variety, healthy and convenience of customers. Banana Peels are more nutritional rich than the flesh. The initial sections of this report begin with the history of plastics food packaging and edible wrappers followed by the whole banana powder producing process includes the steps, to obtain whole banana peel powder. The Powder is further processed to film formation. It will be used for edible packaging application Tea pack, Biscuit pack etc.Click Here To Read More 01-04 DOWNLOAD PDF

The thermal conductivity of building materials is an important property for engineering and for the analysis of insulating materials. In this work, the thermal conductivity of Kosso and mahogany wood were determined following the device of Lee’s disk. The results were then compared with those obtained by the hot strip device. In this line, Lee’s disk device was designed and validated experimentally. According to the analysis of the data from the two wood species tested, the thermal conductivity of Kosso (measurement in the open air with a moisture content of 13%) and mahogany wood (dry) obtained by the method of Lee drive, respectively.Click Here To Read More 05-13 DOWNLOAD PDF
