Environmental assessment of complex wastewater valorisation by polyhydroxyalkanoates production
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are biodegradable polymers with renewable origin that are expected to substitute conventional petrochemical plastics. However, before they are commercialized, life-cycle environmental validation ...
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) Production: A Feasible Economic Option for the Treatment of Sewage Sludge in Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants?
Sludge is a by-product of municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) and its management contributes significantly to the operating costs. Large WWTPs usually have anaerobic sludge digesters to valorize sludge as methane ...
Optimization of an enriched mixed culture to increase PHA accumulation using industrial saline complex wastewater as a substrate
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) appear as good candidates to substitute conventional petroleum-based plastics since they have similar properties but with the advantage of being biodegradable. Wastewater streams with high organic ...
