D- and z-value Database

Kinetic data on the heat-thermal killing of undesirable germs - also known as "pasteurization" - in raw materials for foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics have been a topic at the Process Engineering Laboratory of the OWL University of Applied Science and Arts, now part of the Institute for Life Science Technologies (ILT.NRW), since 2002.
