  1. 1. Enzymatic Modification of the Interaction Between Lignin and Recycled Cellulose Fibers

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Manfred Klug; [2019]
    Keywords : Lignin; Pulp and Paper; Recycling; Biotechnology; Enzyme technology; Laccases; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The pulp and paper industry have been a growing market during the last decades. Due to higher environmental concerns among people, the recycling of papers has become an even more important part of the industry. Recycled paper fibers however are of lower quality than virgin fibers. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploring Deep Eutectic Solvent Pretreatment and Laccase Biobleaching on Oat Hulls in Efforts to Overcome Recalcitrance

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Bioteknik (master); Lunds universitet/Bioteknik (CI)

    Author : Juanita Francis; [2019]
    Keywords : Biotechnology; Bioteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Oat production produces an abundant side stream product called oat hulls, formally regarded as a waste product. These oat hulls are nutritionally packed, containing insoluble dietary fibres. The solubilization and subsequent enzymatic hydrolysis of insoluble fibres, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biodegradation of organic micropollutants dibutyl phthalate and bisphenol A by fungi

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Lena Carstens; [2018]
    Keywords : micropollutant; dibutyl phthalate; bisphenol A; fungi; biodegradation; biosorption; endocrine disrupting chemical;

    Abstract : Fungi represent a promising and relatively untapped resource in regard to the bioremediation of micropollutants. Degradation efficiencies of the ubiquitous endocrine disrupting chemicals dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and bisphenol A (BPA) by selected fungal strains with different ecophysiologies were determined via ultra performance liquid chromatography (UPLC).

  4. 4. Degradation of pesticides by the ligninolytic enzyme Laccase : optimisation of in vitro conditions, immobilisation and screening for natural mediators

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Microbiology

    Author : Naomi Farragher; [2013]
    Keywords : White rot fungi; Laccase; Bioprophylaxis; Diffuse sources; Co-formulation; Degradation; Mediators; Pesticides; Glyphosate; AMPA; Isoproturon; Enzyme encapsulation; Enzyme immobilisation; Natural mediators;

    Abstract : Pesticides are widely used in many industries but the majority reaches non-target organisms or locations through point or diffuse sources. Understanding conditions for their degradation is therefore important. The degradation of glyphosate, its metabolite AMPA and isoproturon using the ligninolytic enzyme laccase was studied. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effect of vegetable oil on the degradation of a pesticide mixture in biobeds

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Microbiology

    Author : Johanna Moreskog; [2013]
    Keywords : Pesticides; Biobed; Ligninolytic enzymes; Maganese peroxidase;

    Abstract : Pesticides are used to control diseases, undesired vegetation and insects in forestry, gardening and agriculture. In the environment, pesticides are generally believed to originate from a diffuse source, such as spray drift of pesticides during application, or a point source, such as spills during refill and cleaning of spraying equipment.
