Phenol degrading ability of Rhodococcus pyrinidivorans and Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from activated sludge plants in South Africa
(Taylor and Francis, 2013-03-13)
Phenol, a common constituent in many industrial wastewaters is a major pollutant and has several adverse effects on the environment. The potential of various microorganisms to utilize phenol for their metabolic activity ...
Effect of thermal pre-treatment on inoculum sludge to enhance bio-hydrogen production from alkali hydrolysed rice straw in a mesophilic anaerobic baffled reactor.
(Taylor & Francis, 2013)
The effect of thermal pre-treatment on inoculum sludge for continuous H2 production from alkali hydrolysed rice straw using anaerobic baffled reactor (ABR) was investigated. Two reactors, ABR1 and ABR2, were inoculated ...
Evaluation of phytotoxicity effect on selected crops using treated and untreated wastewater from different configurative domestic wastewater plants
(Taylor and francis Online, 2016)
This study investigated the phytotoxicity effect of untreated and treated wastewater collected from two different configurations of domestic wastewater treatment plants in South Africa. The phytotoxicity effect on vegetable ...
Continuous biohydrogen production from starch wastewater via sequential dark-photo fermentation with emphasize on maghemite nanoparticles
Hydrogen production from starch wastewater via sequential dark-photo fermentation process was investigated. Two anaerobic bafﬂed reactors (ABRs) were operated in parallel at an OLR of 8.11 0.97 g-COD/L/d, and a HRT of ...
Pathways of 3-biofules (hydrogen, ethanol and methane) production from petrochemical industry wastewater via anaerobic packed bed bafﬂed reactor inoculated with mixed culture bacteria
Simultaneous production of 3-biofuels (hydrogen, ethanol and methane) as by-products of the biodegra-dation of petrochemical wastewater containing MEG via anaerobic packed bed bafﬂed reactor (AnPBBR), was extensively ...
