  1. 1. Growth of filamentous fungi in pure olive oil : a fundamental study for application to vegetable oil-derived waste streams

    University essay from Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi

    Author : Tahir Muhammad Nazir; [2020]
    Keywords : filamentous fungi; oleaginous fungi; Aspergillus oryzae; Neurospora intermedia; olive oil; fat; fungal biomass;

    Abstract : Vegetable oil is more difficult to degrade by microorganisms in comparison to carbohydrates and protein. Thus, it creates serious environmental and health concerns if oil-derived waste streams produced by restaurants and industries remain untreated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluation of the antagonistic activity of Rhodotorula babjevae and its extracellular compounds towards postharvest pathogens

    Author : Caroline Sandberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Rhodotorula babjevae; PEFA; postharvest pathogens; yeast; mold;

    Abstract : The growing population ultimately puts pressure on the food industry to become more effi-cient and to reduce postharvest food waste. The leading method of reducing postharvest decay of fruits has been through fungicide application. READ MORE

  3. 3. Establishing a predictive model for total fat content in Lipomyces starkeyi CBS 1807 by FT-NIR analysis

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Irina Ehnström; [2018]
    Keywords : Oleaginous microorganisms; SCO; biofuels; FT-NIR; lipid extraction; prediction; validation;

    Abstract : This study investigates the potential of using near- infrared spectroscopy (FT-NIR) to establish a predictive model for total fat content in the oleaginous yeast Lipomyces strakeyi CBS 1807. FT-NIR- based quantification allows for rapid lipid determination compared to traditional extraction methods. READ MORE

  4. 4. A comparative study on four oleaginous yeasts on their lipid accumulating capacity

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Microbiology

    Author : Qier Sha; [2013]
    Keywords : Biodiesel; Yeast; Strains; Glucose; Xylose; Fermentation; Cell dry weight; Lipid content; Lipid yield; Optical density;

    Abstract : Under the premise of high energy price with estimated petroleum crisis, biodiesel extracted from plant oil, animal fat and microorganisms is considered as a promising replacement for fossil raw material. However, the increasing price of animal feeding and decreasing tillable land for oil plants have brought great difficulty to achieve biodiesel from feedstock plant oil and animal fat. READ MORE
