Bacteriophages as antimicrobial agents against bacterial contaminants in yeast fermentation processesDownload
Bacterial contaminants are ubiquitous in yeast fermentation processes for biofuel production. In general, they compete with yeasts for nutrients, reducing overall production yield. The present project investigates the application of bacteriophages (phages), viruses infecting and killing...
Removal of Organic and Inorganic Contaminants from Oil Sands Tailings using Carbon Based Adsorbents and Native SedimentDownload
The extraction and refinement of oil sands bitumen produces substantial quantities of liquid tailings and solid coke. Tailings contain metals and naphthenic acids, which require remediation before mine closure. Adsorption is a potential remediation technique which may reuse stockpiled petroleum...
