  1. 1. Zygomycetes and cellulose residuals hydrolysis, cultivation and applications

    University dissertation from University of Borås: School of Engineering ; Chalmers University of Technology: Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering

    Author : Patrik Lennartsson; Högskolan i Borås.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning; zygomycetes; fungi; lignocelluloses; ethanol; fish feed; animal feed; dimorphism; airlift; pretreatment; Biotechnology; Zygomycetes;

    Abstract : Zygomycetes is a class of fungi living worldwide as saprobes, as part of mycorrhizae, and as parasites. Humans have used some zygomycetes for centuries in the production of traditional foods, e.g. Indonesian tempe. READ MORE

  2. 2. Superabsorbent Polymers from the Cell Wall of Zygomycetes Fungi

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Akram Zamani; Akram Zamani Forooshani; Högskolan i Borås.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; chitosan; cell wall; chitin; polyphosphates; dilute sulfuric acid; zygomycetes fungi;

    Abstract : The present thesis presents new renewable, antimicrobial and biodegradable superabsorbent polymers (SAPs), produced from the cell wall of zygomycetes fungi. The cell wall was characterized and chitosan, being one of the most important ingredients, was extracted, purified, and converted to SAP for use in disposable personal care products designed for absorption of different body fluids.

  3. 3. Integration of filamentous fungi in ethanol dry-mill biorefinery

    University dissertation from Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Jorge Ferreira; Högskolan i Borås.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; airlift bioreactors; ascomycetes; biomass; bubble column; ethanol; feed; Neurospora intermedia; thin stillage; zygomycetes; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : The industrial production of bioethanol as a replacement to gasoline is well-established worldwide, using starch- or sugar-rich substrates. Additionally, the bioethanol plants produce animal feeds derived from fermentation leftovers. The biorefinery character of bioethanol plants can be enhanced via process diversification. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ethanol Production from Lignocellulosic Materials: Potential of Continuous Cultivation, Immobilisation, and Zygomycetous Fungi
