Abstract In the present investigation, recovery of malic acid from the fermentation broth was performed by using in situ reactive extraction method employing different combination of amine and solvent systems. Totally six solvent mixtures were tested for toxicity on Aspergillus niger PJR1. Further, effect of solvent mixture concentration on separation of malic acid was investigated. Solvent system consisting of 2 M of trioctylamine in 1-octanol was found to be non-toxic to A. niger PJR1 and resu...

Abstract Crude glycerol, one of the ever-growing by-product of biodiesel industry and is receiving the closest review in recent times because direct disposal of crude glycerol may emerge ecological issues. The renewability, bioavailability and typical structure of glycerol, therefore, discover conceivable application in serving the role of carbon and energy source for microbial biosynthesis of high value products. This conceivable arrangement could find exploitation of crude glycerol as a renewa...

In recent years, green chemistry approaches have gained global recognition as eco-friendly processes. Rapid green synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using extracts of Mimosa pudica leaves was investigated. The silver nitrate (3 mM) solution was used for the synthesis of silver nanoparticles from M. pudica leaves extract. The antimicrobial activity of the synthesized AgNPs was investigated against selected bacterial and fungal species. The presence of ergosterol acetate, 4-methyl cyclopent...

Biogas production has materialized as an auspicious technology for the conversion of renewable energy sources such as agricultural, animal, industrial and municipal wastes into a beneficial form of energy. Biogas production is a very attractive and changeling task because of its slower degradation and requires higher retention time via anaerobic digestion (AD) process. Additionally, there is a chance of toxic intermediates in some of these feedstock may result in the decline of the biogas produc...

Abstract The scarcity of nonrenewable energy sources is imminent, and their environmental impacts have drawn the attention of the researchers toward bio-based alternatives. Biofuel production under the integrated concept of biorefineries becomes inclinations in many countries around the world. One volume of crude glycerol has generated a byproduct during 10 volume of biofuel production under transesterification process. Glycerol is a high energy and carbon compound which finds its diverse applic...

Abstract This review aimed to introduce about mechanism of itaconic acid hydrogels for removal of metal ions and dyes from waste water. Industrial discharge consists of toxic carcinogenic pollutants in dye effluent and so far, conventional treatment techniques used for the treatment of harmful contaminants present in the industrial effluent are not adequate for complete elimination of pollutants. Therefore, the need of developing and employing a significant cost-efficient control measures and tr...

Abstract In the present study, Kluyveromyces marxianus was utilized to study the batch fermentation kinetics of biomass production, substrate utilization and bioethanol production from woody stem Prosopis juliflora. The pre-treated substrate was subjected to Simultaneous Saccharification and Fermentation (SSF) under optimised conditions of pH (4.9), temperature (41 °C), substrate concentration 5% (w/v), inoculum concentration 3% (v/v) and the maximum concentration of bioethanol was found to be 2...

In the last few years, ecofriendly malic acid production has received a potential platform for the bio-based chemicals to replace the dependency of fossil based resources. The main goal of this paper is to explore the feasibility of efficient production of malic acid from cost effective alternative renewable byproducts as feedstock. To replace the traditional method of malic acid production from petroleum-based compounds such as maleic acid, the efficiency of fermentation technology for malic ac...

Abstract In this present work nanocomposite composed of Mn-ZnO capped with Poly Ethylene Glycol (PEG) was utilized as heterogeneous catalyst for the transesterification of oil extracted from Nannochloropsis oculata into biodiesel using methanol as an acyl acceptor. The synthesized Mn-ZnO novel nanocomposite capped with Poly Ethylene Glycol (PEG) was characterized by using SEM and XRD. Lipid contents from the microalgae were extracted by sonication and biphasic solvent method. The process paramet...
