Influence of inoculum activity on the bio-methanization of a kitchen waste under different waste/inoculum ratios
Abstract The use of a granular inoculum prevented acidification during the anaerobic batch biodegradation of a kitchen waste for waste/inoculum ratios in the range of 0.5–2.3 g VS/g VS, when theExpand

Operation of an anaerobic filter and an EGSB reactor for the treatment of an oleic acid-based effluent: influence of inoculum quality
An expanded granular sludge bed (EGSB) reactor and an anaerobic filter (AF), inoculated with granular and suspended sludge, respectively, were operated with an oleic acid-based synthetic effluent.Expand

Microbial and operational response of an anaerobic fixed bed digester to oleic acid overloads
The effect of oleic acid overloads on biomass accumulation and activity in an anaerobic filter was investigated. An anaerobic fixed-bed reactor specially designed to allow the regular withdrawal ofExpand

Syntrophic Degradation of Fatty Acids by Methanogenic Communities
In methanogenic environments degradation of fatty acids is a key process in the conversion of organic matter to methane and carbon dioxide. For degradation of fatty acids with three or more carbonExpand

PAK2 is an effector of TSC1/2 signaling independent of mTOR and a potential therapeutic target for Tuberous Sclerosis Complex
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is caused by inactivating mutations in either TSC1 or TSC2 and is characterized by uncontrolled mTORC1 activation. Drugs that reduce mTOR activity are only partiallyExpand

INFLUENCE OF INNOCULUM ACCLIMATION IN THE BIODEGRADATION RATE AND ESTIMATED BIODEGRADBILITY OF COW MANURE, FOOD WASTE AND OIL
Two different inocula - acclimated and non-acclimated to fat- were used to evaluate the methane production of cow manure, food waste and oily waste in batch assays. The inoculum adapted to fat had aExpand

LCFA accumulation and biodegradation during anaerobic discontinuous treatment of an oleate-rich wastewater
The dynamics of medium and long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) accumulation and biodegradation was studied during the anaerobic treatment of an oleate-rich wastewater. This treatment was made in an upflowExpand
