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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Effect of temperature and cathode material on power production in an earthenware microbial fuel cell
This study investigates the performance of microbial fuel cells (MFCs) fed with municipal sewage water considering parameters such as temperature and cathode materials. Single chamber ceramic MFCs with the cathode exposed ...
