A STUDY REGARDING THE ACTUAL STATE OF ART FOR TECHNOLOGIES AND EQUIPMENT’S USED TO SEPARATE THE SEA BUCKTHORN FRUITS FROM HARVESTED BRANCHES
In the Phyto-pharmaceutical products industry, the sea buckthorn extracts are very valuable in many European countries and for this reason are manufactured many products that use different plant parts (fruits, seeds, lives, etc.). The bioproduct marketing policies and alternative medicine (especially to new-borns) promote products to stimulate the immune system and to provide large vitamin concentration, from this reason the sea buckthorn plantations were established in many rural Romanian regions, but nowadays the fruit harvesting process involves cutting the branches, process that requires a lot of labour and a long period of time, more than that, the transport, handling, cleaning and fruit separation operations that are included in well-controlled technology designed to reduce fruit loss and damage. To support sea buckthorn plantation holders and processors, the INMA directs its expertise to make a study regarding the actual state of art on technologies and equipment’s used to separate the sea buckthorn fruit from the harvested branches in the developed countries, which also take the lead on the market.
