Experimental Study of Ozone Treatment System for Mushroom Substrates Sterilization
This paper reports that ozone sterilizing system as the efficient system for spawn treatment of mushroom cultivation. The long time consuming in steam sterilizing system induced the idea to find another efficient sterilize agent for spawn treatment in term of time consuming. This project involves the ozone sterilizing system design, laboratory experiment and analysis of experiment data to validate the use of ozone in mushroom industry. The sterilizing chamber was specially designed in a fashion that mushroom substrate can be injected by ozone simultaneously. It is useful for commercial application for mushroom cultivation. This new system proved that less time will be consumed. Thus, more mushroom substrate can be produced and at the same time the nutrient inside the substrate is increased due to the oxidation process with organic matter. Consequently, more mushroom can be cultivated at a much lower production cost and can be sold at lower price.
