Abstract:
Iran's northern city of Tonekabon is due to host the second scientific-promotional congress on the applications of nanotechnology in post-harvest quality management of kiwifruit on September 15.

Iran to Host Meeting on Nanotechnology in Quality Management of Kiwifruit

Iran | Posted on September 15th, 2010

Supported by the Middle-East Bio-Researchers Company and held in Tonekabon's Cultural-Educational Growth Center, the congress is intended to familiarize fruit producers of the country with the benefits of using ethylene nano absorbers in optimal preserving of fruit, kiwifruit in particular.

Each year, considerable amounts of farm and garden products are spoiled or lose their quality due to poor inventory conditions and control. Consequently, knowledge-based inventory management and applying the principles of harvested crops preservation would be of high benefits to farmers and garden products producers and exporters.

Considering the approaching harvest period for kiwifruit, the Middle-East Bio-Researchers Company decided to hold the congress with the emphasis on application of nanotechnology in fruit production industry.

Participants will present their research outcomes concerning the possible role of nanotechnology in improving fruits' quality during sowing stage, their preservation during cultivation, and the optimal inventory management in four sessions.

Next to the lecture halls, several educational workshops about ethylene adsorption by nano absorbers experiment and familiarization with "nano-fog" device will be held. Within the workshops, adsorption mechanism and kinetics of ethylene adsorption upon nano absorbers together with the operation of the "nano-fog" device are described to the attendants. Also, an exhibition presenting the fruits grown assisted by the nano absorbers and "nano-fog" will be held alongside the workshops.

Owners of garden and cool rooms and fruit exporters are among the participants in the event.
