  1. 1. Improving the Efficiency of Thermal Energy Usage in Residential Buildings by Heat Recovery from Wastewater

    University essay from Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för företagande, innovation och hållbarhet; Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för företagande, innovation och hållbarhet

    Author : Pranjal Jain; Khaled Alturkmani; [2021]
    Keywords : Wastewater; Heat Exchangers; Heat Pumps; Biofilms;

    Abstract : This study aims to rationalize the consumption of thermal energy in residential buildings by recovering heat from wastewater inside the building before entering the central sewage network outside the building, by conducting an analytical study for a residential tower in Syria to find out the coverage percentage of the heat energy recovered from wastewater for the heating and domestic hot water loads needed for the tower, and calculating the percentage of reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) gases. It is a simple technology as the thermal recovery system consists of three main components, which are in order: a wastewater tank, heat exchangers, and a heat pump. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microbial biofilm monitoring by Electrochemical methods

    Abstract : Hospital Acquired Infections and equipment contamination are some of the biggest issues faced by the healthcare industry worldwide. These infections generally range from mild to life threatening human infections which lead to increased costs and prolonged hospitalization time. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessment of the anti-proliferative and anti-inflammatory pollen extract Cernitin™ in prostatic cells and isolated human peripheral blood mononuclear cells

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Biofilms Research Center for Biointerfaces

    Author : Reuben Victor Laguitan; [2021]
    Keywords : benign prostatic hyperplasia; Cernitin™; cell proliferation; cytokines;

    Abstract : Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and chronic prostatitis (CP) are common diseases in aging men. Though medications are available to alleviate these conditions, problems of possible side-effects of first-line synthetic drugs for prostatic conditions have allowed patients to switch to a safer plant-based medication.

  4. 4. Biofilm growth on super-acidic metal-oxide films

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Linnéa Jansson; [2021]
    Keywords : Biofilm; nanoteknik; ureas;

    Abstract : In nature, urea is hydrolyzed to ammonia and bicarbonate primarily by enzymes called ureases. As urine waste contains multiple important plant nutrients, there is interest in the waste treatment field to use urine waste products as plant fertilizers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Selection for Antibiotic Resistance Below Minimal inhibitory concentration in Biofilm

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Elin Fermér; [2020]
    Keywords : antibiotic resistance; biofilm; antibiotics;

    Abstract : Antibiotics are today one of the most important cornerstones in modern healthcare when it comes to treating bacterial infections. It is an asset human kind have been leaning on for the last century, but excessive and widespread misuse of antibiotics have left deep scars in the form of multi resistant pathogenic strains of bacteria that we soon will not be able to treat.
