Co-digestion of sweet sorghum bagasse with scientific and crude glycerols for electricity generation
With the global fossil fuel supplies dwindling and the alarming increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the need for alternative, clean energies, from carbon neutral sources is pressing. This impetus advanced research ...
Selective adsorption of heavy and light metals by natural zeolites
Recent studies have shown that zeolite can be applied through an ion-exchange process to remove metals from solutions. In this paper the potential of two zeolites to perform as sorbents for treatment of multi-metal system ...
Comparative adaptation of B. subtilis and P. aeruginosa in diesel supplemented medium and impact on biodegradation potential
The degree of diesel blending is likely to influence its toxicity as well as the susceptibility and speed of biodegradation. It is therefore imperative to identify strains that can degrade diesel blend in record time, such ...
Bentonitc clay adsorption affinity for anionic and cationic dyes
The incidence of dye pollution in South Africa is quite alarming, requesting effective and affordable techniques to curb further degradation of the limited water resource. Adsorption is an attractive technique due to a ...
Adsorption potential of bentonite and attapulgite clays applied for the desalination of sea water
A possible new process for the partial desalination of seawater is to use bentonite clay or attapulgite as an adsorbent. The ion exchange property of these clays, which is a result of the characteristic t-o-t layer ...
Susceptibility of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to inhibitors and impact on bioethanol production yield
There have been increasing concerns in developing countries over the competition between food and energy resulting from the production of bioethanol from edible biomass. Second generation lignocellulose feedstock is an ...
