  1. In the agricultural sector of many European countries, biogas production through anaerobic digestion (AD) is becoming a very fast-growing market. Anaerobic digestion is a simple and robust process that biologically converts an organic matrix into…
  2. Efficient dissociation of microorganisms from their aggregate matrix is required to study the microorganisms without interaction with their native environment (e.g., biofilms, flocs, granules, etc.) and to assess their community composition through…
  3. Lignocellulosic biomass represents an important part of the agricultural wastes that can be transformed into a renewable energy. The biodegradability and biodegradation kinetics of ultra-finely ground wheat straw was studied under mesophilic…
  4. The influence of different proportions of lignocellulosic substrate (cow manure with straw, CM) on the single-phase (conventional reactor) and two-phase (acidification/methanation with solids and liquid recirculation) digestion of a readily…
  5. A biofilm-based 4 L two chamber microbial electrolysis cell (MEC) was continuously fed with acetate under saline conditions (35 g/L NaCl) for more than 100 days. The MEC produced a biogas highly enriched in H2 (≥90%). Both current (10.6 ± 0.2…
  6. Purpose The impact of human activities on marine environments is poorly addressed by the scope of life cycle impact assessment (LCIA). The aim of this study is to provide characterization factors to assess impacts of sea use such as fishing…
  7. The growth of two lipid-producing Chlorella species on fermentative end-products acetate, butyrate and lactate, was investigated using a kinetic modeling approach. Chlorella sorokiniana and Auxenochlorella protothecoides were grown on synthetic…
  8. To favor the control of membrane fouling on line by relaxation and backwash sequencing, two major fouling origins are considered: the former is due to retention of large particles on the membrane surface forming a growing deposit that can be…
  9. Bioaerosols emitted from composting plants have become an issue because of their potential harmful impact on public or workers’ health. Accurate knowledge of the particle-size distribution in bioaerosols emitted from open-air composting facilities…
  10. The potential for total nitrogen removal from municipal wastewater has been evaluated in an autotrophic membrane bioreactor running with a low chemical oxygen demand (COD)/N ratio to simulate its combination with an upstream physicochemical process…
  11. Bioaerosols generated at composting plants are released during processes that involve the vigorous movement of material such as shredding, compost pile turning, or compost screening. Such bioaerosols are a cause of concern because of their potential…
  12. Following legislation, the assessment of the environmental risks of 30000-100000 chemical substances is required for their registration dossiers. However, their behavior in the environment and their transfer to environmental components such as water…
  13. We study how a particular spatial structure with a buffer impacts the number of equilibria and their stability in the chemostat model. We show that the occurrence of a buffer can allow a species to persist or on the opposite to go extinct, depending…
  14. Nowadays there is a growing interest on the use of both lignocellulosic and algae biomass to produce biofuels (i.e. biohydrogen, ethanol and methane), as future alternatives to fossil fuels. In this purpose, thermal and thermo-chemical pretreatments…
  15. It is difficult to address all of the direct environmental impacts of fisheries using conventional methods of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). A methodological framework was developed that calculates regionalised characterisation factors for biomass…
  16. This study examines the performance of an anaerobic fixed-film bioreactor under seasonal operating conditions prevailing in medium and small size Tequila factories: start-up, normal operation and particularly, during the restart-up after a long stop…
