the research aim of this study was to characterize an isolated native strain of Chlorella sp. ACUF_802, well adapted to a high nitrate concentration environment and to investigate its potential to nitrate and phosphate removal from industrial wastewaters with the minimal addition of chemical reagents and energy. The isolated strain was identified and evaluated for its capability to support biomass growth and nutrient removal from synthetic wastewater in batch tests using different concentrations...

The use of microalgae as a food source is still poorly developed because of the technical difficulties related to their cultivation and the limited knowledge about their chemical composition and nutritional value. The unicellular red microalga Galdieria sulphuraria has a very high daily productivity and its cultivation under acidic conditions avoided any bacterial contamination. G. sulphuraria can be cultured under autotrophic and heterotrophic conditions: in this study a screening of 43 strains...

Biofuels production by microalgae is a challenging process known since the end of the last century. Bio-oil extracted from microalgae may be adopted as crude fuels or may be transesterified to biodiesel. Key aspects for industrialization of microalgae-to-biofuel processes are: selection and improvements of algal strains; development of high-performance photobioreactor; improvement of oil extraction and transesterification. The present contribution regards the effects of reactor design on biodies...

Abstract Indoor cultures of Stichococcus bacillaris were carried out to investigate the effect of pH, CO 2 , and hydrodynamics on biomass and biodiesel productivity in a 0.6 L vertical bubble column (VBC) and a 1.7 L inclined bubble column (IBC) photobioreactor. The temperature and the irradiance level were set at 23 °C and 300 μE/(m 2 s), respectively. The pH of the liquid culture was in the range 3.0–8.5. The CO 2 concentration in the gas phase was increased up to 15%, typical of exhaust gas f...

The effects of both the CO2 concentration and the pH of the medium on biodiesel production by Stichococcus bacillaris (ACUF 158/11) were reported. Indoor cultures of S. bacillaris were carried out in both 0.6 L vertical bubble column photobioreactors and 1.7 L inclined bubble column photobioreactors. Batch, fed-batch and semi-continuous conditions were investigated as regards the biomass cultivation with Bold Basal Medium. pH was changed between 3 and 7. Tests were carried out at 23 °C, 200 E/(...

Abstract The thermal decomposition of Fenitrothion [phosphorothioic acid O,O-diethyl O-(3-methyl-4-nitrophenyl) ester] was investigated. Results obtained by different scale calorimetric techniques show that the thermal decomposition of Fenitrothion involves two main steps. Intermediate and final thermal degradation products formed during isothermal and adiabatic thermal decomposition experiments were identified. The eco-toxicological profile of the decomposition products was assessed experimenta...

Abstract Olive oil mill wastewaters (OMWs) are characterised by low pH and a high content of mono- and polyaromatic compounds that exert microbial and phytotoxic activity. The laccase cDNA of the pox A1b gene from Pleurotus ostreatus , carrying a signal peptide sequence for enzyme secretion and driven by the CaMV 35S promoter, was cloned into a plant expression vector. Nuclear genetic transformation was carried out by co-cultivation of Agrobacterium tumefaciens with tobacco cv Samsun NN leaves a...

Different calorimetric techniques coupled with chemical analyses and ecotoxicological bioassay led to the proposal of suitable protocol for the definition of a KPI (Key Process Index) useful to rank a compound in respect to the toxicological profile of its thermal decomposition products. Fenitrothion was used as example and showed to decompose through a series of two main processes, the first being less severe than the second. It is demonstrated that similar ecotoxicological results can be gathe...
