Extrusion Processing: Technology and Commercialization

GRSC 790 - Class Number: 11412


The course will cover various topics including: • principles of extrusion processing • raw material selection • equipment and control systems • post-processing operations • extruded products (including breakfast cereal, snacks, textured soy protein, pet food, and feed for poultry, animal and aquatic species) • business planning and commercialization • lab sessions and hands-on experience with pilot-scale extrusion equipment The course is jointly organized by the departments of grain science and agricultural economics at KSU, with active support by industry partners. The Kansas State Extrusion Lab has a strong emphasis on service, research and teaching and is primarily housed in the Bioprocessing and Industrial Value-Added Program building. It has a variety of facilities including lab-scale and pilot-scale twin and single screw extruders, and a pilot-scale gas-fired dryer.
