Researchers at IIT Kharagpur have developed new process technology based on ozonization and ultra filtration for manufacturing shelf-stable sugarcane juice. Chirasmita Panigrahi, research scholar at the Dept. of Agricultural & Food Engineering, IIT Kharagpur has been selected for the NRDC National Meritorious Invention Awards 2020 by the National Research Development Corporation, Government of India, for developing a novel process technology to extend the shelf life of packaged Sugarcane juice. Supervised by Professor H N Mishra of the Agricultural & Food Engineering Department and co-supervised Professor Sirshendu De of the Chemical Engineering Department, the new technology involves ultra-filtering and ozonization of the freshly extracted microfiltered juice followed by packaging under an aseptic environment.
