Biodegradability of diesel and biodiesel blends
The biodegradability of pure diesel and biodiesel and blends with different proportions of biodiesel (2% (commercial); 5% and 20%) was evaluated employing the respirometric method and the redox indicator 2,6-dichlorophenol ...
Considerations for the design of polymeric biodegradable products
(De GruyterBerlin, 2013)
Several biodegradable polymers are used in many products with short life cycles. The performance of a product is mostly conditioned by the materials selection and dimensioning. Strength, maximum strain and toughness will ...
Applied models to biodegradation kinetics of lubricant and vegetable oils in wastewater
(Elsevier B.V., 2009-04-01)
Bioremediation technologies are used in order to remove pollutants from the environment in a safe, economical and harmless way during the treatment of waste, especially with the use of techniques such as biodegradation. A ...
PLA and Montmorilonite Nanocomposites: Properties, Biodegradation and Potential Toxicity
The concern related to solid waste increases efforts to develop products based on biodegradable materials. At present, PLA has one of the highest potentials among biopolyesters, particularly for packaging. However, its ...
Aerobic biodegradation of butanol and diesel oil blends
(Academic Journals, 2010-10-18)
This work aimed to evaluate the aerobic biodegradation of butanol/diesel oil blends (5, 10, 15, 20%, v/v) in comparison to the biodiesel/diesel oil blend (20%, v/v). Respirometric experiments simulating the contamination ...
Optimized and scaled-up production of cellulose-reinforced biodegradable composite films made up of carrot processing waste
(Elsevier B.V., 2018-10-01)
The ever-growing environmental concern arising from the unrestricted exploitation of fossil sources for the massive production of non-biodegradable materials encourages research on alternative renewable resources. We herein ...
Aerobic biodegradation of butanol and gasoline blends
(Pergamon-Elsevier B.V. Ltd, 2009-09-01)
This work aimed to assess the aerobic biodegradation of butanol/gasoline, blends (5; 10; 15 and 20% v/v), being the latter compared to the ethanol/gasoline blend (20% v/v). Two experimental techniques were employed, namely ...
LIGNOSULFONATE BIODEGRADATION BY CHRYSONILIA-SITOPHILA
