  1. 1. Discovery and investigation of glycoside hydrolase family 5 enzymes with potential use in biomass conversion

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Yang Wang; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; plant cell wall; biomass; hemicellulose; mannans; glycoside hydrolase; subfamily classification; Arabidopsis; mannanase; transglycosylase; enzymatic characterization.; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Glycoside hydrolases (GHs) cleave glycosidic bonds in glycoconjugates, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides such as cellulose and various hemicelluloses. Mannan is a major group of hemicelluloses. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Technology and Economy of Farm-Scale, High-Solids Anaerobic Digestion of Plant Biomass

    University dissertation from Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Mattias Svensson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; farm-scale; Bioteknik; farmhouse construction; Lantbruksteknik; Biotechnology; agricultural machines; kontroll av utsläpp; Agricultural engineering; Miljöteknik; pollution control; Environmental technology; Lantbruksekonomi; straw bed priming; stratified bed digesters; nitrogen recycling; greenhouse gases; Sweden; Agricultural economics; sequential single-stage fed-batch; ley crops; sustainability; wheat straw; sugar beet tops; crop residues; high-solids; economy; Anaerobic digestion; biogas upgrading;

    Abstract : Anaerobic digestion is a microbially mediated process occurring in nature in the absence of oxygen and other non-carbonaceous electron acceptors. The majority of the carbon of the organic matter degraded in the process is transformed into carbon dioxide and methane. READ MORE

  3. 3. Solar-based physicochemical-biological processes for the treatment of toxic and recalcitrant effluents

    University dissertation from Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Tamer Essam; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; combined process; biodegradaiton; phenolics; phenol; Advanced Oxidation Processes; Photodegradation; photolysis;

    Abstract : Wastewater treatment is a worldwide necessity that is even more crucial to countries deprived from abundant fresh water sources or unable to afford advanced and costly processes. With this perspective, this thesis was conducted within an Egyptian-Swedish research collaboration that aimed to develop solar-based (as free renewable energy source available locally) process for hazardous wastewater treatment.

  4. 4. Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal - Carbon Sources, Nitrate as Electron Acceptor, and Characterisation of the Sludge Community

    University dissertation from Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Christensson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1997]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; activated sludge; nitrate; carbon source; PAO; polyphosphate accumulating organisms; enhanced biological phosphorus removal; EBPR; characterisation; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) was studied in laboratory scale experiments as well as in a full scale EBPR process. The studies were focused on carbon source transformations, the use of nitrate as an electron acceptor and characterisation of the microflora. READ MORE

  5. 5. RECOMBINANT PEROXIDASES AND XYLANASES: I. Cloning and production of a peroxidase from horseradish II. Characterisation of functional domains of thermostable xylanases from Rhodothermus marinus

    University dissertation from Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Till alla de som har undrat vad det är som jag har hållit på med under alla dessa år men inte vågat att fråga. Jag har arbetat med kloning av gener som kodar för olika enzymer. Enzymer finns i alla levande celler och fungerar som katalysatorer (hjälpare) i olika biokemiska reaktioner. READ MORE
