Molecular and physiological characterization of thiosulphate-oxidizing microbial associations prior to use in hydrogen sulphide biofiltration.
Interacting microbial associations capable of utilizing thiosulphate as an energy source were enriched/isolated from activated sludge, landfill site [mal covering soil and soil from an acid mine water drainage site. The ...
Microbial biotransformation of kimberlite ores.
Microbial leaching plays a significant role in the natural weathering of silicate containing ores such as diamond-bearing kimberlite. Harnessing microbial leaching processes to pre-treat mined kimberlite ores has been ...
Analysis of indigenous herbivore faecal matter as a potential source of hydrolytically active microorganisms.
Abstract available in PDF file.
Humic acid pretreatment for enhancing microbial removal of metals from a synthetic 'wastewater'.
The presence of heavy metal ions in waste streams is one of the most pervasive environmental issues of present times. A rotating biological contactor (RBC) was used to investigate the potential capacity of microbial ...
Characterization of selected Bacillus isolates exhibiting broad spectrum antifungal activity.
The genus Bacillus is comprised of Gram-positive, rod-shaped, spore-forming bacteria which are well known for their ability to produce a diverse array of antimicrobial compounds. Ofparticular interest is the ability of ...
Partial purification and characterisation of Phialophora alba xylanases and its application to pretreated sugarcane bagasse.
Xylan is the major component of hemicellulose and its degradation can be achieved through the hydrolytic action of microbial xylanases. Xylanases have an array of applications one being bioethanol production. The lack ...
Modelling and optimization of microbial production of hydrogen on agro-municipal wastes.
The indiscriminate use of fossil fuels has led to global problems of greenhouse gas emissions, environmental degradation and energy security. Developments of alternative and sustainable energy resources have assumed paramount ...
