This study aims to report the influence of different designs on the composting process and the usability of c...
Chapter
Due to the growing scarcity of water, and the persistent high energy cost applied to drinking water, this study aimed to analyze the potential use of alternative sources of water like rainfall water and roofs drainage system, designed to combine with condensed water production of the air conditioners, at Federal Institute of Science and Technology...
Chapter
Coffee grounds are a waste generated in different environments and capable of being valorized through composting. This research aimed to contribute to the dissemination and achievement of sustainable development goals 4 and 11 of the UN 2030 Agenda, through the identification, categorization and evaluation of literature produced to scientifically d...
Chapter
Composting generates a suitable product to be used as a substrate for seed germination, contributing to resilient agricultural practices and progressively improving soil quality. Considering the growth of this compound use in home gardens and knowing that it may contain phytotoxic substances, which prevent seed development, the goal of this work wa...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Microorganisms don't live as pure cultures of dispersed single cells but instead accumulate at interfaces to form polymicrobial aggregates such as biofilms. Adherence of bacteria to metal surfaces can initiate the biofilm formation within which the metabolic processes can significantly affect the corrosion surface. AISI 316 stainless steel is highl...
Chapter
Despite the increasing of coffee consumption in Brazil and the consequent increase in used coffee ground generation on university campuses, sustainable alternatives for the coffee wastes recovery are still incipient, and more than 90% of this residue is directed to landfills. This paper reports a study under development at a university campus in Vi...
Chapter
The recovery of organic solid waste in site represents an interesting sustainable practice for restaurants of university campuses. The present case study was carried out in a university restaurant located in the city of Vitória, Espirito Santo, Brazil, to survey the types of organic waste generated, to evaluate the actions practiced for waste manag...
Chapter
The study reports the planning steps, development, and testing of a recycle bin prototype in a Brazilian university. After studies with users and assessment of equipment available on the market, a group of criteria was selected to be assessed, such as: aesthetic/visual; feasibility; quality and material resistance; cost; compatible accessibility di...
Chapter
A case study is being developed in two higher education institutions belonging to the metropolitan regions of São Paulo/SP and Vitória/ES, Brazil, aiming the evaluation of the use and operation of composting methods. Different household operational systems are being evaluated in the institutions involved. Quantitative and qualitative methods were u...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Biofilms are small complex and dynamic ecosystems, formed by involved microorganisms in organic polymers matrix adhered to a surface. Microorganisms structuralized in biofilms demonstrates preference for the adhesion process in diverse inanimate surfaces, including stainless steel. The marine environment is a propitious environment for the associat...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Microbial biofilms are a group of microorganisms immersed in a matrix made of extracellular substances produced by the same microorganisms. Microbial adhesion to surfaces as wood or Steel may indicate the begining of a deterioration process of these surfaces, what causes economic losses to different sectors. This work aimed to determine the microbi...
Conference Paper
Biofilms are complex communities of microorganisms attached to surfaces or associated with interfaces. Adherence of bacteria to metal surfaces can initiate the biofilm formation within which the metabolic processes can significantly affect of the corrosion surface. This study reports microbial biofilm formation on 304 stainless steel surface in mar...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Este estudo laboratorial envolveu a participação de profissionais de áreas distintas a fim de estudar e analisar a resposta biológica de superfícies de titânio submetidas a tratamento termoquímico a plasma com e sem o uso de gaiola catódica. Uma avaliação da análise de fase cristalina, molhabilidade e concentração de nitrogênio nas superfícies fora...
Conference Paper
Microbial biofilms is the assembly of microorganisms involved by organic polymer matrix, associated or not to inanimate surfaces. Biofilms formed in the surfaces of instruments and immersed materials in the sea become inconvenient and can cause corrosion. This work aimed to determinate the adhesion of microorganisms to the surface of stainless stee...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Biofilmes microbianos podem ser definidos como o conjunto de micro-organismos associados entre si, envolvidos em uma matriz de polímeros orgânicos, onde os membros da comunidade encontram proteção, nutrientes e fixação. Os biofilmes são amplamente conhecidos como mecanismos de patogenicidade, de adesão a superfícies em diferentes tipos de materiais...
Article
Fresh and aged coconut water (CW) samples were introduced directly into the electrospray ionisation (ESI) source, and were combined with the Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICR MS) technique to characterise in situ chemical compounds produced during natural ageing (from 0 to 15 days) at room temperature (23 °C). The...

Dada à importância de não só conhecer as plantas da Mata Atlântica, mas despertar na comunidade a preservação de nossa vegetação, este trabalho foi realizado por meio de atividades de pesquisa que possibilitem a alfabetização científica. Utilizaram-se materiais coletados nos remanescentes florestais de Santa Teresa/ES e encontros com alunos do ensi...
Article

This paper reports the experience lived by students, teachers and technicians from Laboratory of Microbiology of Ifes (Campus Vitória) in the period of 2004 and 2013. The laboratory has been exploited far beyond its possibilities of practical classes and provided opportunity to develop skills, competencies and experiences for 13 students in interns...
Article
Full-text available
Acredita-se que ciência não se limita ao conhecimento de leis e teorias, mas, também, dos processos históricos e que os episódios científicos estão relacionados com o desenvolvimento da sociedade. Esse estudo relata atividade realizada numa disciplina sobre os eventos que marcaram a história da Biotecnologia. Foram apresentados aos alunos 25 fatos...
Article
Full-text available
Some bacterial species can colonize humans and plants. It is almost impossible to prevent the contact of clinically pathogenic bacteria with food crops, and if they can persist there, they can reenter the human food chain and cause disease. On the leaf surface, microorganisms are exposed to a number of stress factors. It is unclear how they survive...
