Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering

Since 1905, the Department of Agricultural Engineering, now the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (ABE), has been a leader in providing engineering solutions to agricultural problems in the United States and the world. The department’s original mission was to mechanize agriculture. That mission has evolved to encompass a global view of the entire food production system–the wise management of natural resources in the production, processing, storage, handling, and use of food fiber and other biological products.

History
In 1905 Agricultural Engineering was recognized as a subdivision of the Department of Agronomy, and in 1907 it was recognized as a unique department. It was renamed the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering in 1990. The department merged with the Department of Industrial Education and Technology in 2004.

Abstract

An artificial refuse-derived fuel was prepd. by mixing waste paper (28.2%), waste plastics (47.0%), cardboard (10.0%), multimaterial packagings (5.0%), wood (1.9%), rubber (5.6%), textiles (2.2%) and kitchen waste (0.1%) and carbonized at 300 degrees C under N2. The fuel was then studied for calorific value (34.45 MJ/kg) and emission of volatile org. compds. by microextn. to solid phase and gas chromatog. anal. Twenty-six org. compds. were identified in the emitted gas. 2-Methylfurane, 2,5-dimethylfurane, PhH, PhMe and furfural were the main components of the emission.
