  1. 1. Fungi-Based Biorefinery : Valorization of industrial residuals and techno-economic evaluation

    Author : Gülru Bulkan; Mohammad J Taherzadeh; Mats Galbe; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Techno-economic analysis; Organosolv; bioethanol; filamentous fungi; food; lignin; fruit; bioactive compounds; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : Sustainable development of society and industry is necessary for a safer future that is being challenged by environmental pollution, climate change, and scarcity of food and nutrition. Materials considered as waste can be converted into value-added products and energy, hence regained to the economy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Engagement with Fungi-Based Food : Recovery and Valorization of Resources for Food

    Author : Coralie Hellwig; Kamran Rousta; Marianne Thomsen; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sustainable lifestyles; fungi; resource recovery; sustainable food; food waste reduction; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : There has been an increasing demand for more sustainable food and ways of encouraging individuals to lead more sustainable lives. This thesis seeks to contribute to understanding human engagement with fungi-based food in a multidisciplinary manner by complementing resource recovery with an occupational perspective that sheds light on aspects that encourage or discourage individuals from engaging with this food.

  3. 3. Evolutionary genomics of symbiotic fungi

    Author : Balaji Rajashekar; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein family; Symbiosis; Paxillus involutus; Laccaria bicolor; Hydrophobin; Fungi; Ectomycorrhizae; Evolution; Comparative Genomics; Basidiomycetes;

    Abstract : Ectomycorrhizae is a mutualistic association between roots of woody plants and a diverse range of soil fungi. The fungi exchange soil derived mineral nutrients for photosynthetic sugars from the host plant. The mycorrhizal symbioses are commonly found in all forest ecosystems and have a major ecological and economical importance. READ MORE

  4. 4. Calorimetric methods for the study of fungi on building materials

    Author : Yujing Li; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fungal growth; fungal activity; ergosterol; humidity; temperature; calorespirometry; oxygen; mätmetoder; röta; svamp; byggmaterial; påväxt; kalorimetri; microcalorimetry; isothermal calorimetry; Fungi; building materials; mould; Serpula lacrymans; rot fungi;

    Abstract : The aim of this project is to study the fungal growth habits on building materials as a function of humidity, temperature and other environmental parameters. The method of calorimetry is used as a way to quantify fungal activity on building materials. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biochemical Interactions of Some Saproxylic Fungi

    Author : Joel Ljunggren; Bengt Gunnar Jonsson; Erik Hedenström; Dan Bylund; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biologically active compounds; bioactive; fungi-fungi interaction; fungi co-culture; extracellular amino acids.;

    Abstract : Interactions are all around us, and as humans we may use words and gestures to communicate our intentions. At the micro level of fungi, communications are replaced by chemical signals and structure. READ MORE
