Assessing amendment and fertilizing properties of digestates from anaerobic digestion through a comparative study with digested sludge and compost.
Digestate, with biogas represents the final products of anaerobic digestion (AD). The methane-rich biogas is used to produce electricity and heat, whereas the digestate could be valorized inExpand

Fresh organic matter of municipal solid waste enhances phytoextraction of heavy metals from contaminated soil.
In this study, the ability of the organic fraction of municipal solid wastes (OFMSW) to enhance heavy metal uptake of maize shoots compared with ethylenediamine disuccinic acid (EDDS) was tested onExpand

On-field study of anaerobic digestion full-scale plants (part I): an on-field methodology to determine mass, carbon and nutrients balance.
The mass balance (input/output mass flows) of full-scale anaerobic digestion (AD) processes should be known for a series of purposes, e.g. to understand carbon and nutrients balances, to evaluate theExpand

Perspective on the use of humic acids from biomass as natural surfactants for industrial applications.
In the context of renewable vs. non-renewable sources of chemical compounds, the development of natural surfactants as a substitute for synthetic surfactants in technological applications is anExpand

The use of the dynamic respiration index to predict the potential MSW-leachate impacts after short term mechanical biological treatment.
The aim of this work was to evaluate the effects of short full scale MBT process (28 d) getting a biological stability of DRI < 1000 mg O(2) kg VS(-1) h(-1), on the impact of leachate produced inExpand

Short mechanical biological treatment of municipal solid waste allows landfill impact reduction saving waste energy content.
The aim of this work was to evaluate the effects of full scale MBT process (28 d) in removing inhibition condition for successive biogas (ABP) production in landfill and in reducing total wasteExpand

Pre-treated digestate as culture media for producing algal biomass
Abstract An agro-zootechnical ultrafiltered digestate (UF) coming from an anaerobic digester plant was used to grow two strains of microalgae: Chlorella sp. and Phaeodactylum tricornutum , in aExpand

Mixotrophic cultivation of Chlorella for local protein production using agro-food by-products.
A local strain of Chlorella vulgaris was cultivated by using cheese whey (CW), white wine lees (WL) and glycerol (Gly), coming from local agro-industrial activities, as C sources (2.2gCL-1) toExpand

Degradation of aflatoxin B1 during anaerobic digestion and its effect on process stability.
Abstract The effect of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) on an anaerobic digestion process (AD) was studied. Batch anaerobic digestion trials were performed with both non-contaminated AFB1 corn grain (Control A)Expand
