How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Crude glycerol from biodiesel manufacture can be used as carbon source for microbial fermentations. The production of polyhydroxyalkanoates by manipulating the Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) selection stage of microbial mixed cultures (MMC) using high organic loading rates (OLR, 50C mM/day) and different cycles lengths (6, 12 and 24 h) was optimize...
The increase in global biodiesel production makes imperative the development of sustainable processes for the use of its main by-product, crude glycerol. In this study the feasibility of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) production by a mixed microbial community using crude glycerol as feedstock was investigated. The selected culture had the ability to c...
