The antibacterial activity of biogenic silver and its mode of action
In a previous study, biogenic silver nanoparticles were produced by Lactobacillus fermentum which served as a matrix preventing aggregation. In this study the antibacterial activity of this biogenicExpand

Palladium nanoparticles produced by fermentatively cultivated bacteria as catalyst for diatrizoate removal with biogenic hydrogen
A new biological inspired method to produce nanopalladium is the precipitation of Pd on a bacterium, i.e., bio-Pd. This bio-Pd can be applied as catalyst in dehalogenation reactions. However, largeExpand

Catalytic dechlorination of diclofenac by biogenic palladium in a microbial electrolysis cell
Diclofenac is one of the most commonly detected pharmaceuticals in wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluents and the receiving water bodies. In this study, biogenic Pd nanoparticles (‘bio‐Pd’) wereExpand

Addition of an aerated iron-rich waste-activated sludge to control the soluble sulphide concentration in sewage
Hydrogen sulphide emission in sewers is associated with toxicity, corrosion and odour and also yields considerable costs. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the soluble sulphideExpand

Soil quality indicators for intensive vegetable production systems in Java, Indonesia
We explored the value of ergosterol, phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) profiles and neutral lipid fatty acid (NLFA) 16:1ω5c as soil quality indicators for the intensive systems of vegetable productionExpand

Flow cytometric examination of bacterial growth in a local drinking water network
Bacterial growth in drinking water networks can result in health-based implications, affect network hydrology and induce customer complaints. In this study, cultivation-based methods were compared toExpand

A hybrid IEX-RO process with brine recycling for increased RO recovery without chemical addition: A pilot-scale study
Abstract By pre-treating reverse osmosis (RO) feed water for process water production with cationic ion-exchange (IEX), scaling on the membrane can be avoided and the water recovery can be increased.Expand

A generic reverse osmosis model for full-scale operation
Abstract Mathematical models can be a powerful tool in the operation of reverse osmosis (RO) facilities which is often challenged by a varying feed water quality. Most models, however, do notExpand
