Laccase-catalyzed degradation of anti-inflammatories and estrogens
Pharmaceuticals are regarded as emerging environmental pollutants since many of them are ubiquitous, recalcitrant and biologically active. In this paper, the degradation of several pharmaceuticalsExpand
Environmental performance of wastewater treatment plants for small populations
Abstract Life cycle assessment (LCA) is an environmental tool which allows the calculation of all the environmental loads related to a process/product/service. In the present work, LCA was applied toExpand
Simplified life cycle assessment of galician milk production
Milk, an example of staple food, has an outstanding demand by consumers as it is considered a prescription for good health. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is an excellent tool of environmentalExpand
Environmental and economic profile of six typologies of wastewater treatment plants.
The objective of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) is to prevent pollution. However, it is necessary to assess their sustainability in order to ensure that pollution is being removed, notExpand
Sodium inhibition in the anaerobic digestion process: Antagonism and adaptation phenomena
Abstract The effect of sodium on the methanization of volatile fatty acid (VFA) mixtures was evaluated for three different sludges. Sodium concentrations causing 50% inhibition ranged from 3 to 16 gExpand
Environmental Evaluation of Different Treatment Processes for Sludge from Urban Wastewater Treatments: Anaerobic Digestion versus Thermal Processes (10 pp)
AbstractBackground, Aims and Scope Huge amounts of sewage sludge, that need to be handled, are generated all around the world from wastewater treatment plants and its management in an economicallyExpand
Life cycle inventory of medium density fibreboard
Goal, Scope and BackgroundWood is the most important renewable material. The management of wood appears to be a key action to optimise the use of resources and to reduce the environmental impactExpand
Environmental assessment of anaerobically digested sludge reuse in agriculture: potential impacts of emerging micropollutants.
Agricultural application of sewage sludge has been emotionally discussed in the last decades, because the latter contains organic micropollutants with unknown fate and risk potential. In this work,Expand
A comparison of municipal wastewater treatment plants for big centres of population in Galicia (Spain)
Background, Aims and ScopeIt is clear that a wastewater treatment plant brings about an enhanced quality of wastewater; however, it also implies such environmental side effects as material and energyExpand
Degradation of estrogens by laccase from Myceliophthora thermophila in fed-batch and enzymatic membrane reactors.
Several studies reported that natural and synthetic estrogens are the major contributors to the estrogenic activity associated with the effluents of wastewater treatment plants. The ability of theExpand
