It’s the beginning of 2013. You wake up to discover that after the earth has cracked, after the fireballs have descended and after the roiling oceans have taken their toll, you’re among the survivors, ready to face the new world order. But first things first. You’re hungry. What do you eat? Well, if you start preparing now, your new best friend could be, The Freeze Dry Guy (FDG). According to him, government studies show that freeze dried foods could last up to 30 years, maintaining its nutritional value and most of its original qualities. The perfect solution for the earliest days of the post 2012 world.
This is not your father’s freeze dried vittles, says FDG, arguing that the highest levels of government and military leaders are enjoying freeze dried food. If true, this is a closely guarded secret. Everything from asparagus to boiled beef, tofu, tea and of course, coffee can be yours through the freeze dried process. Just this week manufacturers of freeze drying equipment were hanging out at the Chem Show in New York where businesses in the chemical processing industries display their wares and connect with suppliers and customers. To be honest freeze drying is one small aspect of the half trillion dollar industry.
At a glance it isn’t among the most entertaining stuff but chemical processing is a major player in our daily lives. More than just providing a place to show off products, Chem Show organizers are ready to help attendees find solutions to “processing challenges.” This year’s general theme is about sustainable and green processing. Amid environmental concerns, global competition and economic struggles, chemical processing companies are also seeking out ways to be more efficient and environmentally friendly. As a result there are seminars on topics ranging from air pollution control to safety and pumping system optimization which is not necessarily a class on how to get your pumping system to appear higher in a Google search.
