Evaluation Of Stability Of Unit Loads For Tilt And Shock Events During Distribution, Jay Singh, Koushik Saha, Tyler Sewell

Journal of Applied Packaging Research

Initiatives to lightweight and reduce packaging materials to achieve sustainability goals have created unit load stability challenges in the transportation and handling of palletized packaged goods. Consequently, an increased focus is being placed on evaluating how current pre-shipment performance tests evaluate load stability. This study was undertaken to address the current need for establishing test methodologies towards observing a unit load’s overall stability during transportation and handling related activities commonly experienced in the distribution environment. With this goal, this study developed two test methods as well as apparatus/measuring tool to observe a palletized load’s overall stability. The ...

Sustainability In The Brewing Industry - The Greater Effect, Ben Weger

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The modern sustainable brewery is defined by a consideration to improve all aspects of production, resource efficiency, and distribution to the customer. Through the development of auditing procedures to benchmark the efficiency of a brewery, industry-leading companies have provided inspiration for sustainability to an entirely new generation of craft brewers. Utilizing proven benchmarking methods, combined with the analysis of defining a sustainable brewery, Powder Keg Brewing Company implemented a benchmarking audit in order to assess current efficiency and find areas of process improvement. Breweries may represent only a small portion of water intensive industries; however, the greater effect of sustainability ...
