Anaerobic digestion.
Compared to the raw animal slurries AD digested material is significantly less odorous, and has lower organic pollution potential, which ultimately has water quality benefits. Expand
Ammonia and nitrogen fluxes in landfill sites: applicability to sustainable landfilling
European legislation imposes tough restrictions on the quality of landfill leachate discharges, of which a major component is ammonia. Thus, there is a pressing need, particularly for oper ators whoExpand
Control/promotion of the refuse methanogenic fermentation.
Control/exploitation of the solid-state refuse methanogenic fermentation is examined with specific reference to the effects of first-tier variable manipulations. Expand
The carbon and hydrogen stable isotope composition of bacteriogenic methane: A laboratory study using a landfill inoculum
Anaerobic bacterial degradation of landfill waste produces a globally significant source of the greenhouse gas methane. Stable isotopic measurements of methane [δI3C(CH4) and δD(CH4)] can oftenExpand
The effects of nitrate and nitrate-supplemented leachate addition on methanogenesis from municipal solid waste
The recirculation of nitrified leachate through landfill sites, followed by in situ denitrification, represents a novel and more sustainable approach for the removal of ammonia from leachate, priorExpand
Microbial Control of Pollution
A review of the role which micro-organisms play in controlling pollution, beginning by setting the general scene as perceived by industrialists and academics, before moving on to cover more detailedExpand
Comparative biotransformation of pentachlorophenol in soils by solid substrate cultures of Lentinula edodes
With monocultures of L. edodes, rates of PCP depletion were rapid for the initial 4 weeks and, although thereafter the rate decreased, 99% biotransformation was obtained in 10 weeks, and analyses of soil metabolites after 10 weeks revealed that monocults had eliminated both PCP and pentachloroanisole.
