Biodegradation of blend films in soil and soil with chorume. I. PVC/PCL
(Research Journal of Biotechnology, 2007-11-01) [Artigo]
Blends of synthetic and biodegradable polymers can be important in attaining material plastic degradation in the environment. Biodegradation using soil and chorume (liquid waste from landfill) microorganisms is a promising ...
The influence of soil and landfill leachate microorganisms in the degradation of PVC/PCL films cast from DMF
(Polímeros, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
While the use of plastics continues to increase in our daily lives in a growing range products, these materials are very persistent in the environment. The blending of aliphatic polyesters with other thermoplastic polymers ...
Evaluation of the use of vinasse as a biostimulation agent for the biodegradation of oily sludge in soil
(Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology, 2010-10-01) [Artigo]
Este trabalho objetivou estudar o efeito da vinhaça na biodegradação em solo da borra oleosa proveniente da refinaria de petróleo Replan-Petrobras. Foi utilizado o método respirométrico de Bartha para verificar a eficiência ...
Aerobic biodegradation of butanol and diesel oil blends
(African Journal of Biotechnology, 2010-10-18) [Artigo]
This work aimed to evaluate the aerobic biodegradation of butanol/diesel oil blends (5, 10, 15, 20%, v/v) in comparison to the biodiesel/diesel oil blend (20%, v/v). Respirometric experiments simulating the contamination ...
