1,3-Propanediol has wide applications for large volume markets, particularly in the polymer business. Microbial production of 1,3-propanediol has been considered as a competitor to the traditional petrochemical routes. However, the formation of 1,3-propanediol is limited by the amount of NADH supplied by the oxidative pathway of glycerol dismutation.(More)
Digital photography is a promised method for estimating the fractal characteristics of leaf veins. In this study, the effects of different threshold levels and image processing methods using Adobe Photoshop software on the fractal dimension values were examined from a digital photo of nectarine leaf. The results showed that the nectarine leaf vein has(More)
The Energetic and Exergetic performances evaluating models were built for a agricultural greenhouse cooling with groundwater-style GSHP system (GSHPs) in Northern China. The Exergy destruction (Exdest), Exergy efficiency(ε) and coefficient of performance (COP) were estimated and presented based on summer cooling test monitored data and the simulation(More)
Equations were derived based on the principles of light reflection to optimize the height and angle parameters of the reflective board in real time and location. The optimized parameters were applied to enhance the light intensity inside the lean-to greenhouses in China. The calculated results were significantly correlated to the actual measurements.(More)
