Use of Styrene as Sole Carbon Source by the Fungus Exophiala oligosperma: Optimization and Modeling of Biodegradation, Pathway Elucidation, and Cell Membrane Composition
Biodegradation of styrene by Exophiala sp. was tested at different initial concentrations (19.3–170.6 mg l−1), pH (2.8–8.7), and temperatures (19.8–45.1 °C), for 120 h according to a 23 full-factorial central composite ...
Combined biological and physicochemical waste-gas cleaning techniques
(Taylor & Francis, 2012-06)
This review presents a general overview of physical, chemical and biological waste-gas treatment techniques such as adsorption, absorption, oxidation and biodegradation, focusing more extensively on combined processes. It ...
Effect of oil concentration and residence time on the biodegradation of α-pinene vapours in two-liquid phase suspended-growth bioreactors
Recently, research on the use of binary aqueous–organic liquid phase systems for the treatment of polluted air has significantly increased. This paper reports the removal of α-pinene from a waste air stream in a continuous ...
Evaluation of the biomethane potential of solid fish waste
Manufacturing processes in fish canning industries generate a considerable amount of solid waste that can be digested anaerobically. The aim of this research was to study the biochemical methane potential of different solid ...
Biological conversion of carbon monoxide to ethanol: Effect of pH, gas pressure, reducing agent and yeast extract
A two-level full factorial design was carried out in order to investigate the effect of four factors on the bioconversion of carbon monoxide to ethanol and acetic acid by Clostridium autoethanogenum: initial pH (4.75–5.75), ...
Biodegradation of BTEX in a fungal biofilter: Influence of operational parameters, effect of shock-loads and substrate stratification
The effect of relative humidity (RH: 30% to >95%) of a gas-phase mixture composed of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and para-, meta- and ortho-xylenes (BTEX), inlet concentrations (0.2–12.6 g m−3), and empty bed residence ...
