[CEST2019_00959] Anaerobic co-digestion of poultry manure and used cooking oil for enhanced biogas production
by Eftaxias A., Gkalimanis P., Koskinari M.D., Koumara A., Diamantis V., Aivasidis A.

Aim of this study was to evaluate the anaerobic co-digestion of diluted poultry manure (DPM) and used cooking oil (UCO). Mixtures of DPM with different UCO dosages (1 to 6% v/v) were prepared using a high-shear emulsifier and digested in batch anaerobic reactors. Increasing the UCO dosage resulted in a respective increase of the emulsion COD (from initially 64 to 182 g/L) however the stability of the emulsion was adversely affected.

[CEST2019_00202] Characterizing activated carbon synthesized from corn straw aiming water treatment
by Silva T.P.B., Souza I.A.V.B., Abud A.K.S., Silva C.E.F.

The emerging agenda for sustainable development and global warming control searches urgent researches to reduce environmental impacts. In this sense, activated carbons from agroindustrial wastes are widely used as adsorbents in food and pharmaceuticals industries, mainly for the separation and purification of biomolecules, due to their complex pore structure and high surface area.

[CEST2019_00281] Production of PHAs with enhanced properties from sugar-based wastewater in a two stage process
by Fouskakis G., Stergiopoulou E., Alexandropoulou M., Antonopoulou G., Ntaikou I., Lyberatos G.

The experimental design of the study was based on two different microbial processes, i.e. anaerobic fermentation of a sugar-based wastewater via mixed acidogenic cultures and aerobic polymerization of the produced acids and alcohols for poly-hydroxy-alkanoates (PHAs) production, via enriched cultures. For the first stage of the combined process, a continuous up-flow column reactor (UFCR) and a continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR) were developed.
