Development of a bioreactor system using a pine bark matrix for the removal of metal ions from synthetic aqueous solutions.
Many industries use, or produce, metal-containing solutions which must be treated for reuse or discharge to sewer. One such treatment is biological and both living and dead materials have been investigated for the abstraction ...
Microbiological investigations into granular sludge from two anaerobic digesters differing in design and industrial effluent purified.
Due to a combination of selection criteria, sludges from upflow anaerobic digesters treating industrial waste waters consist primarily of well-settling, dense agglomerates called granules. Quantification of the component ...
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 ...
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 ...
