Isolation, identification and characterization of Cr(VI) reducing Bacillus cereus from chromium contaminated soil
Abstract The bioreduction of Cr(VI) was investigated using bacterial strain isolated from soil samples contaminated with tannery wastewater. The isolated species was found to be Bacillus cereus.… Expand
Comparative studies on biodiesel production from Waste Cotton Cooking Oil using alkaline, calcined eggshell and pistachio shell catalyst
Transesterification of Waste Cotton Cooking Oil was reported. Different catalysts were studied. A maximum yield of 92% was reported for calcined eggshells catalyst. KOH and pistachio shell reported… Expand
Mechanism of cr(vi) bioaccumulation by phanerochaete chrysosporium
The aim of the present study was to investigate the mechanism of Cr(VI) bioaccumulation by livingand active Phanerochaete chrysosporium. Fungal growth was inhibited beyond 10 mg L-1 Cr(VI)… Expand
Biodiesel production from waste cotton seed oil using low cost catalyst: Engine performance and emission characteristics
Summary Production of fatty acid methyl esters from waste cotton seed oil through transesterification was reported. The GC–MS analysis of WCCO oil was studied and the major fatty acids were found to… Expand
Bioreduction of hexavalent chromium by free cells and cell free extracts of Halomonas sp.
Abstract In this work the bioreduction of Cr(VI) from aqueous solutions by Halomonas sp. was reported. Medium pH had significant effect on the bioreduction of Cr(VI). Glucose at 1000 mg L −1 was… Expand
Bioreduction of Cr(VI) using live and immobilized Phanerochaete chrysosporium
Abstract The aim of the study was to investigate the bioreduction capacity of the live and immobilized P. chrysosporium. The basidiospores were immobilized in different matrices viz., Ca alginate,… Expand
Thin layer drying kinetics and exergy analysis of turmeric (Curcuma longa) in a mixed mode forced convection solar tunnel dryer
A low cost and user friendly solar tunnel dryer was fabricated for drying of indigenous agro products. Experimental investigation and drying kinetics of turmeric (Curcuma longa) in a mixed mode solar… Expand
Phenol Biodegradation by Indigenous Mixed Microbial Consortium: Growth Kinetics and Inhibition
Abstract A mixed microbial culture isolated from wastewater of a refinery was tested for its potential in degrading phenol during its growth phase. Phenol was used as the sole carbon source, and its… Expand
Bioreduction of Hexavalent Chromium by Live and Active Phanerochaete chrysosporium: Kinetics and Modeling
In this work the potential of live and active Phanerochaete chryosporium, a white rot fungi, to remove lower Cr(VI) concentration from aqueous solutions was reported for the first time. A medium pH… Expand
Thermogravimetric study and kinetics of banana peel pyrolysis: a comparison of ‘model-free’ methods
AbstractIn this study, a fixed-bed reactor was designed and fabricated to experiment with pyrolysis of banana peel biomass. A thermogravimetric and kinetic study was performed to estimate the optim...
