CO2 Production of Soil Microbiota in the Presence of Ametryne and Biofertilizer
(Water Air And Soil Pollution, 2014-12-01) [Artigo]
Ametryne is an herbicide applied to sugar cane cultures to prevent the emergence of weeds. It is a persistent compound that percolates ground and surface water thus impacting aquatic communities. In this study, we evaluated ...
Assessing Bacillus subtilis biosurfactant effects on the biodegradation of petroleum products
(Environmental Monitoring And Assessment, 2015-01-01) [Artigo]
Microbial pollutant removal capabilities can be determined and exploited to accomplish bioremediation of hydrocarbon-polluted environments. Thus, increasing knowledge on environmental behavior of different petroleum products ...
Metabolical shifts towards alternative BTEX biodegradation intermediates induced by perfluorinated compounds in firefighting foams
(Chemosphere, 2017-01-01) [Artigo]
The type and concentration of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) can induce different types of enzymes and promote alternate patterns of BTEX transformation. However, it is not known how the presence of active fluorocarbon-degrading ...
Biodegradation of PP and PE blended with PHBV in soil samples
(Advances In Polymer Technology, 2015-06-01) [Artigo]
This work studied the biodegradation of polyethylene/poly(hydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyvalerate) (PE/PHBV) and polypropylene/PHBV (PP/PHBV) films, by respirometry in soil, using biometric flasks. Additionally, the characteristics ...
