Biodegradation and toxicological evaluation of lubricant oils
(Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology, 2012-12-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this work was to compare different toxicity levels of lubricant oils. The tests were performed using the earthworm (Eisenia andrei), arugula seeds (Eruca sativa) and lettuce seeds (Lactuca sativa), with three ...
Morphological, mechanical properties and biodegradability of biocomposite thermoplastic starch and polycaprolactone reinforced with sisal fibers
(Journal of Reinforced Plastics and Composites, 2012-04-01) [Artigo]
The incorporation of fibers as reinforcements in polymer composites has increased due to their renewability, low cost and biodegradability. In this study, sisal fibers were added to a polymer matrix of thermoplastic starch ...
Bioremediation of direct dyes in simulated textile effluents by a paramorphogenic form of Aspergillus oryzae
(Water Science and Technology, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
Azo dyes are extensively used for coloring textiles, paper, food, leather, drinks, pharmaceutical products, cosmetics and inks. The textile industry consumes the largest amount of azo dyes, and it is estimated that ...
Textile Dye Treated Photoelectrolytically and Monitored by Winogradsky Columns
(Environmental Engineering Science, 2012-03-01) [Artigo]
Due to large amounts of wastewater generated by textile industry, studies on degradation and subsequent impact of these effluents are needed when they are released into water bodies. Since reactive dyes present higher ...
