  1. 1. Explicit consideration of microbes in quantification of gross N rates based on N-tracing model

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Tsai-wei Tang; [2022-01-26]
    Keywords : N-tracing model; microbial biomass; gross N quantification; organic N; mineralization; immobilization;

    Abstract : When studying the nitrogen cycle in soils, the principle of 15N isotope dilution and enrichment is commonly used to measure gross N transformation rates. The measuring data of both organic and inorganic nitrogen substrates are therefore be analysed by Ntrace model. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental and computational analysis of the thermal degradation and the loss of strength of engineered wood-based panels

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Wickramasooriyage Devmini Kularatne; [2022]
    Keywords : Oriented strand board; thermal decomposition; mechanical degradation; heat transfer modelling; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The current trends in the construction industry push toward materials that are more sustainable and environmentally friendlier than more traditional building materials such as concrete and steel. Timber and timber composites are one of the most popular materials on this list, due to both their mechanical strength and pleasant aesthetics. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biochar from separated digestate and pig manure as soil amendment

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Soil and Environment

    Author : Lovisa Nissen; [2022]
    Keywords : separation; screw press; incubation study; CO2 emission; N mineralization;

    Abstract : The situation in and around the Baltic Sea, with large areas with hypoxia in the sea and areas in the watershed with a high concentration of animal farms, has led to a need to increase the nutrient recycling of animal manure. High levels of phosphorus (P) in the soil lead to leaching, and by reducing the P-level in organic fertilizers, this leaching can be reduced. READ MORE

  4. 4. Potential for Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal in an activated sludge system for greywater

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Mehrzad Ghassemi; [2022]
    Keywords : Greywater; EBPR; Phosphorus; Biological treatment; Water and environmental engineering; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : As the world's population grows, concerns about water scarcity and rising pollution such as phosphorus and nitrogen have increased significantly. Greywater has been considered by researchers as an ideal alternative to fresh water for decades, and several projects have been implemented to treat and recycle it for various reuse purposes.

  5. 5. Production of filamentous fungal biomass on waste-derived volatile fatty acids for ruminant feed supplementation and it's in vitro digestion analysis

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

    Author : Mohammadali Bouzarjomehr; [2022]
    Keywords : VFAs volatile-fatty-acids ; Fungi production; Feed production.; Fermentation processes; Aspergillus oryzae; A. oryzae fungal biomass; Sustainability; Rumen fluids; Evaluation of the digestibility of the produced fungal biomass; TT method analysis; Gas production method; Nylon bag method analysis;

    Abstract : Single cell proteins such as that of edible filamentous fungal biomass are considered as a promising sustainable source of animal feed supplementation. Filamentous fungi can be cultivated on different organic substrates including volatile fatty acids (VFAs) such as acetic, propionic, and butyric acids. READ MORE
