  1. 1. Fungi-based biorefinery model for food industry waste progress toward a circular economy

    University dissertation from Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Pedro Souza Filho; Satinder Kaur Brar; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; filamentous fungi; circular economy; biorefinery; food industry; fungal biomass; bioplastic; resource recovery; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : The food industry, one of the most important industrial sectors worldwide, generates large amounts of biodegradable waste with high organic load. In recent years, the traditional management methods to treat this waste (e.g., landfilling) have been considered not suitable because they do not exploit the potential of the waste material.

  2. 2. On the investigation of chemical parameters reflecting microbial activity linked to nutrient availability in forest soil

    University dissertation from Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Madelen Olofsson; Dan Bylund; Bengt-Gunnar Jonsson; Bjarne W. Strobel; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Boreal forest; electrospray ionization; fungal biomass; hydrophilic interaction chromatography; hydroxamate siderophores; liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry; mineral amendment; aromatic acids; podzol soil;

    Abstract : As agrarian society developed, the most fertile soils able to sustain the nutritional requirements needed for high crop yield were assigned to farming, while the more penurious soils were left to uphold the forest ecosystems. Some temperate forests are developed on acidic soils considered to be nutrient poor, as much of the inorganic nutrients are entrapped in poorly weatherable soil minerals and not easily accessed by plant roots.

  3. 3. Enzymes for selective decoupling of woody biomass: From fundamentals to industrial potential

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Jenny Arnling Bååth; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; lignocellulose; glucuronoyl esterase; polysaccharide acetylation; carbohydrate esterase family 15; woody biomass; materials biorefinery; enzyme accessibility; lignin-carbohydrate bonds; mannanase; galactoglucomannan;

    Abstract : The need for an economy based on renewable materials has resulted in growing interest in the use of woody biomass in a wider field of application. However, the chemical complexity of lignocellulose and the dense structure of wood pose challenges in its processing. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bacterial and fungal growth in soil: The effect of temperature and substrate addition

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Stephanie Reischke; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bacterial growth; Fungal growth; Respiration; Carbon loading; Glucose mineralisation; Temperature adaptation; Temperature sensitivity; Temperature dependence;

    Abstract : Bacteria and fungi are the main agents in decomposition of soil organic matter. Their activity is determined by the availability and quality of substrate, especially its content of carbon, but also nitrogen and phosphorus. Other environmental factors, which affect the activity of the microbial community in soil, are temperature, moisture and pH. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mould on building materials - A calorimetric study of fungal activity as a function of environmental factors

    University dissertation from Division of Building Materials, LTH, Lund University

    Author : Yujing Li; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; materiallära; byggnadsteknik; building construction; fungal activity; temperature; relative humidity; building; image analysis; indoor environment; wood; materialteknik; material technology; mould; calorimetry; isothermal calorimeter;

    Abstract : Mould problems in buildings have become a growing concern during the past decades. The growth of mould fungi indoors deteriorates air quality, influences human health and causes economical losses. Preventing mould growth from occurring is a more cost effective option than cleaning and renovation of buildings with mould problems. READ MORE
