Biodegradation of PP and PE blended with PHBV in soil samples
This work studied the biodegradation of polyethylene/poly(hydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyvalerate) (PE/PHBV) and polypropylene/PHBV (PP/PHBV) films, by respirometry in soil, using biometric flasks. Additionally, the characteristics ...

(Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, Facultad de Ingeniería Geológica, Minera, Metalúrgica y Geográfica, 2007)
Petroleum products biodegradation profile similarity evaluated by F test comparison of weekly CO2 production
(World Scientific Publ Co Pte Ltd, 2012-01-01)
Strategies applied to bioremediation contaminated environments are necessary to identify limitations towards biodegradation and to predict remediation performance and thereby rule out technologies that may be inappropriate ...
CO2 Production of Soil Microbiota in the Presence of Ametryne and Biofertilizer
Ametryne is an herbicide applied to sugar cane cultures to prevent the emergence of weeds. It is a persistent compound that percolates ground and surface water thus impacting aquatic communities. In this study, we evaluated ...
Monitoring and modeling 4-chlorophenol biodegradation kinetics by phenol-acclimated activated sludge by using open respirometry
(Springer Heidelberg, 2018-08)
The aim of this study was to analyze the mechanisms, stoichiometry, and stability of 4-chlorophenol (4CP) biodegradation kinetics by phenol-acclimated activated sludge using open respirometry. While the removal of 4CP was ...
Monitoring the biodegradability of bisphenol A and its metabolic intermediates by manometric respirometry tests
As a result of its wide usage in the production of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins, bisphenol A (BPA) is commonly detected in wastewaters. Recently, BPA became a major concern because its adverse effects as an ...
Biodegradation of blend films in soil and soil with chorume. I. PVC/PCL
(Research Journal Biotechnology, 2007-11-01)
Blends of synthetic and biodegradable polymers can be important in attaining material plastic degradation in the environment. Biodegradation using soil and chorume (liquid waste from landfill) microorganisms is a promising ...
