Abstract Worldwide 1.3 billion tons of food is being wasted yearly from production to household level. This is an alarming situation as this food wastes create not only environmental and health issues but also economic crisis. Interestingly these food wastes are rich sources of a wide variety of bioactive molecules. Modern methods and technologies have to be adopted to utilize these food wastes for their efficient conversion into value-added products. Rather than dumping or burning the food wast...

Abstract Excessive utilization of synthetic plastics has led to a major detrimental impact on the environment. Plastic pollution and accumulation in water bodies have threatened the survival of marine life. Plastic pollution can be prevented by using biopolymers that are eco-friendly and can be naturally produced by certain living organisms. The biopolymers have environmental advantages over synthetic plastics, such as biodegradability and biocompatibility. In comparison to plants and other micr...

Culture medium composition and an efficient lipid extraction process have the largest impact on the cost of industrial production of microbial single-cell oil (SCO). In this study, SCO from the yeast Rhodosporidium thoruloides grown in sugarcane medium was successfully produced in a 1 m3 bioreactor. Biomass was concentrated by sedimentation and the acid-hydrolysed cells were extracted using a recurrent extraction (RE) and a newly-proposed wet extraction (WE) process. RE consisted of Soxhlet extr...

Abstract Sudden erratic climate change due to fossil fuel combustion and a steady rise in the oil price have engaged researchers in a race to develop sustainable and economically viable fuel i.e. biofuel. Among the biofuels, biohydrogen is considered to be the most efficient and the cleanest form of energy owing to its advantages of no adverse greenhouse gas emissions and the potential to be generated from various waste biomass or feedstocks. However, the biohydrogen production through photobiol...

Abstract In present study, statistical optimization of medium composition for endoinulinase production from raw inulin using Aspergillus tritici was performed in shake-flask fermentations. The concentration of four independent variables viz. raw inulin (1.5–3.5%), peptone (0.2–1.8%), (NH4)H2PO4 (0.2–1.8%) and pH (4.5–6.5) was explored to optimize the composition of fermentation medium for maximum endoinulinase production. Fermentation medium containing 2.5% raw inulin, 1% peptone, 1% (NH4)H2PO4 ...

Abstract This study aim was to investigate the influence of black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) Hermetia illucens L. (Diptera: Stratiomyidae) on pathogenic bacteria (PB) survival in the chicken manure (CM), pig manure (PM), cow manure (COM) and sewage sludge (SS) compost. Three kinds of manure [chicken (T2), pig (T4) and cow (T6)] and SS (T8) were inoculated with BSFL (1.2:7 ratio on fresh weight basis) and without BSFL (T1, T3, T5 and T7) was used as control and experiment lasted for 9 days. The re...

ABSTRACTThe objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of hydrotropic delignification of cotton stalk on sugar release performance for bioethanol production. In this study, different alkyl benzene sulfonates were screened to select the best pretreatment agent, and the effectiveness of pretreatment was evaluated by enzymatic saccharification. Sodium cumene sulfonate was found to be the best hydrotropic agent in terms of reducing sugar yield. Parameters such as hydrotrope concentration, bi...

Abstract Agricultural land pollution is key a problem globally, which is linked with growth of industries. Petroleum industrial sector is one of the major industrial sectors and the activities of petroleum industry lead to the agricultural land pollution. Oily sludge is a type of solid and hazardous waste generated from petroleum industrial activities. Hence, there is an urgent need to find remediation methods of the oily sludge contaminated agricultural land. Thus, the aim of this work was to s...

Abstract Bio-refinery approach using agricultural and industrial waste material as feedstock is becoming a preferred area of interest in biotechnology in the current decades. The reasons for this trend are mainly because of the declining petroleum resources, greenhouse gas emission risks and fluctuating market price of crude oil. Most chemicals synthesized petro chemically can be produced using microbial biocatalysts. 2, 3-Butanediol (BDO) is such an important platform bulk chemical with numerou...
