Giovani Leone Zabot holds a position of professor and researcher at Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM) - Cachoeira do Sul/Brazil since 2015. He is graduate in Food Engineering from Universidade Regional Integrada do Alto Uruguai e das Missões (URI) - 2010. He has received his Ph.D. in Food Engineering at University of Campinas (UNICAMP) - 2015. He won the Thesis Research Award of Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES) in 2016. He held a position of postdoctoral researcher at University of Campinas from 2015 to 2016 and at Franciscan University from 2017 to 2018. Since 2016, he is a permanent professor in the Post-Graduate Program of Agricultural Engineering (UFSM). He has a partnership with more than 180 researchers from Brazil, Peru, Colombia and Spain, among others. He makes part of the Editorial Board of journals of food and chemical engineering and he is serving as an eminent reviewer for more than 80 journals. He is the author of 59 articles with more than 600 Citations, 8 book chapters, more than 80 conference papers, and having H-index of 16 (Google Scholar). He has supervised more than 15 students (graduate and post-graduate).He has experience in Food Engineering and Chemical Engineering, focusing on reuse of agroindustrial biomasses to produce derivatives within a biorefinery concept. The researches comprise the extraction of bioactive compounds using supercritical fluids, economic engineering for processing natural and agricultural products, thermal treatment of wastes for producing biofuels and value-added products, and process intensification applying supercritical technology. Currently, he has a research productivity grant (PQ2) founded by National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq). (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Production of natural extracts containing bioactive compounds has gained notoriety, as well as the concern in reducing energy consumption in productive processes has expanded. Based on this scenario, the current project covers a research that focuses in applying the principles of process intensification to develop a novel design for obtaining and micronizing bioactive compounds. The des...
The Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) of plants is a process with increasing technological advancement on physics separations fields in the latest years. Most of studies evaluate the extracts composition testing different temperatures and pressures of extraction. However, a few searches evaluate the performance of process testing the bed geometry effect, in order to propose the scale...
