Recently, CRISPR/Cas9 technology has emerged as a powerful approach for targeted genome modification in eukaryotic organisms from yeast to human cell lines. Its successful application in several plant species promises enormous potential for basic and applied plant research. However, extensive studies are still needed to assess this system in other important(More)
Increasing soil pollution problems have caused world-wide concerns. Large numbers of contaminants such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), petroleum and related products, pesticides, chlorophenols and heavy metals enter the soil, posing a huge threat to human health and natural ecosystem. Chemical and physical technologies for soil remediation are(More)
Immobilized Saccharomyces cerevisiae on the surface of chitosan-coated magnetic nanoparticles (SICCM) was applied as a new magnetic adsorbent for the adsorption of Cu(II) from aqueous solution. The prepared magnetic adsorbent was characterized by TEM, XRD and FTIR. TEM images indicated that S. cerevisiae was immobilized on the surface of chitosan-coated(More)
The isotherms, kinetics and thermodynamics of Cd(II), Zn(II) and Pb(II) biosorption by Penicillium simplicissimum were investigated in a batch system. The effects of pH, initial metal ions concentration, biomass dose, contact time, temperature and co-ions on the biosorption were studied. Adsorption data were well described by both the Redlich-Peterson and(More)
Uneven distribution and excess accumulation of biomass within gas phase biofilters often result in operational problems such as clogging, channeling, and excessive head loss within biofilter beds, and consequently, the deterioration of performance. In this paper, the characteristics, mechanisms, and patterns of biomass accumulation in gas biofiltration were(More)
Butanol, ether, toluene, and hexane, which have Henry's constants ranging from 0.0005 to 53, were used to investigate the effects of substrate solubility or availability on the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in trickle-bed biofilters. Results from this study suggest that, although removal of a VOC generally increases with a decrease in its(More)
Two identical bench-scale biotrickling filters (BTFs), BTF 1 and BTF 2, were evaluated for toluene removal at various gas empty bed contact times (EBCTs) and organic loadings. BTF 1 and BTF 2 were packed with structured and cubic synthetic polyurethane sponges, respectively. At a constant toluene loading of 16 g/(, toluene removal efficiencies(More)
The catalytic oxidation of triazophos pesticide from wastewater using Fenton reagent was investigated at bench-scale in this study. Synthesized wastewater and actual industrial triazophos pesticide wastewater taken from a pesticide company were examined sequentially. The COD values of the synthesized and actual industrial triazophos pesticide wastewater(More)
In order to improve nitrogen removal for rural wastewater, a novel two-stage hybrid system, consisting of a vertical flow trickling filter (VFTF) and a horizontal flow multi-soil-layering (HFMSL) bioreactor was developed. The performance of the apparatus was observed under various carbon-nitrogen ratios and water spraying frequencies separately. The maximum(More)
A new bioflocculant was produced by culturing Rhodococcus erythropolis in a cheap medium. When culture pH was 7.0, inoculum size was 2 % (v/v), Na2HPO4 concentration was 0.5 g L−1, and the ratio of sludge/livestock wastewater was 7:1 (v/v), a maximum flocculating rate of 87.6 % could be achieved. Among 13 different kinds of pretreatments for sludge, the(More)
