Effects of Probiotic-vitacogen and β1-4 Galacto-oligosaccharides Supplementation on Methanogenesis and Energy and Nitrogen Utilization in Dairy Cows
The two feed supplements may contribute to the abatement of methane as a greenhouse gas and vitacogen- supplemented diets compared to control and GOS supplemented diets. Expand
Biological degradation and composition of inedible sweetpotato biomass.
In the studies conducted with biodegradative microorganism indigenous to sweetpotato fields, it was determined that a particle size of 75 microns and incubation temperature of 30 degrees C were optimal for degradation. Expand
Inhibitory effects of saturated fatty acids on methane production by methanogenic Archaea
The results indicate that, as a prerequisite to inhibit methanogenesis in Archaea, medium- and long-chain saturated fatty acids have to be at least partially molten. Expand
Influence of pH and the degree of protonation on the inhibitory effect of fatty acids in the ruminal methanogen Methanobrevibacter ruminantium strain M1
To investigate the relationship between the protonation of medium‐chain fatty acids (MCFA) and their inhibitory effect on a ruminal methanogen species, a protonated version of MCFA is synthesised from Na6(CO3)(SO4)2, Na2SO4 and Na2CO3. Expand

The performance of two-stage continuous ethanol fermentation system using suspended-bioreactors using naturally flocculent strain of Schizosaccharomyces pombe and the high biomass levels achieved allow efficient ethanol conversion. Expand
Immobilization of Yarrowia lipolytica Lipase on Bamboo Charcoal to Resolve (R,S)‐Phenylethanol in Organic Medium
Immobilization of lipase on bamboo charcoal was confirmed by spectra of FTIR, UV-Vis, and XPS. Under optimal conditions, the immobilized lipase retains 87 % of the hydrolytic activity of the freeExpand
Biological degradation and composition of sweet potato biomass — errata☆
Abstract Many challenges are presented by biological degradation in a bioregenerative Controlled Ecological Life Support System as envisioned by the U.S. National Aeronautics and SpaceExpand
