Background The cellulosic ethanol industry has developed efficient strategies for converting sugars obtained from various cellulosic feedstocks to bioethanol. However, any further major improvements in ethanol productivity will require development of novel and innovative fermentation strategies...
Reusability of immobilized cellulases with highly retained enzyme activity and their application for the hydrolysis of model substrates and lignocellulosic biomassDownload
Enzyme immobilization is a promising approach to reduce enzyme cost in lignocellulose-based biorefining. This paper describes the reusability of immobilized cellulases and examines hydrolysis of various components of lignocellulose and industrial lignocellulosic biomass when using immobilized...
Biocomposites from hydrolyzed waste proteinaceous biomass: Mechanical, thermal and moisture absorption performancesDownload
The main goal of this research is maximizing the utilization of renewable materials in both the matrix and reinforcement, more importantly exploitation of waste material for biocomposite development and evaluating the mechanical, thermal and water resistance performances. Woven roving and chopped...
Over the coming few decades bioplastic materials are expected to complement and gradually replace some of the fossil oil based materials. Multidisciplinary research efforts have generated a significant level of technical and commercial success towards these bio-based materials. However, extensive...
The chemical composition of Garcinia kola seed and hull was determined using standard methods. Results show that crude protein, lipid extract, ash, and crude fibre ratios are: 39.52 and 99.92 g/kg, 43.25 and 42.91 g/kg, 11.42 and 18.62 g/kg, 114.02 and 153.44 g/kg respectively. Carbon : nitrogen...
Transport and reaction processes in bioremediation of organic contaminants. 1. Review of bacterial degradation and transportDownload
Bioremediation of contaminants in soil and water involves a complex interplay between transport processes and biological reactions. Equilibrium physical factors such as aqueous solubility, soil adsorption, and phase partitioning indicate the transport processes that can limit bioremediation,...
