Article
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been part of much worldwide cooperation in engineering design, nutrients production that contributes towards a better and more sustainable future. This review intends to uncover a potential renewable source that could significantly contribute to various goals under the SDGs. The prospects of algae tackling...
Article
Global demand for plastic materials has severely harm the environment and marine sea life. Therefore, bioplastics have emerged as an environmentally friendly alternative due to sustainability, minimal carbon footprint, less toxicity and high degradability. This review highlights the sustainable and environmentally friendly approach towards bioplast...
Article
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are biodegradable and biocompatible polyester which are biosynthesized from the intracellular cells of microalgae through the cultivation of organic food waste medium. Before cultivation process, food waste must undergo several pre-treatment techniques such as chemical, biological, physical or mechanical in order to sol...
Article
Microalgae have emerged as an effective dual strategy for bio-valorisation of food processing wastewater and food waste hydrolysate which favours microalgae cultivation into producing value-added by products mainly lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins to the advantages of bioplastic production. Moreover, various microalgae have successfully removed...
Article
This thesis is focusing on utilization of lipid compound and exploring the extraction method for producing lipid compound in which could be used in biofuel and synthetic rubber polymer. The existing extraction technology which is energy intensive, high investment cost on equipment and multistep procedure in which reduced the efficiency of the overa...
Chapter
The development of advanced and novel products for the biotechnology industry has recently been a point of focus, and thus research has been carried out to determine a technique for integration of the upstream process with product recovery. This integration step allows products to be in an acceptable state for formulation and delivery. The purpose...
Chapter
Microwave-assisted liquid biphasic systems are a combination mechanical and chemical technology, with microwaves as a mechanical mechanism assisting in the extraction process of a liquid biphasic system. The incorporation of a microwave mechanism into the liquid biphasic system enables further optimization of the separation process. The integration...
Article
Actinoplanes sp. A1094 strain had been selected for its high production of acarbose from 20 different strains of Actinoplanes sp. can be found in wild. The content for glucosidase inhibitor of acarbose concentration was recorded at 1.12 g/L. The conducted analysis of 16S rRNA sequence of Actinoplanes sp. A1094 showed 99% similar identity to the cor...
Article
This study demonstrated a novel approach of lipids extraction with simultaneous biofuels conversion on microalgae Chlorella sorokiniana CY-1 cultivation using waste molasses as culture medium. The lipid extraction process was based on a hybrid liquid biphasic system (HLBS) which comprises of disruptive and extractive solvents in a single system. Th...
Article
This study has investigated on two objectives which are enhancing the microalgae Chlorella sorokiniana CY-1 cell disruption mechanism using thermal Fenton reaction and performing non-catalytic transesterification by ultra-sonication method. Radicles generated by Fenton reaction are rapid, dynamic, and the reaction was assisted by thermal heating to...
Article
With recent advances in novel gene-editing tools such as RNAi, ZFNs, TALENs, and CRISPR-Cas9, the possibility of altering microalgae toward designed properties for various application is becoming a reality. Alteration of microalgae genomes can modify metabolic pathways to give elevated yields in lipids, biomass, and other components. The potential...
Article
Rise in human population and gradual decline in fossil fuels are increasing the demand for fuels and causing an upsurge in fuel prices and global warming. Concomitantly, consumers have raised their health awareness by taking various supplements, e.g. omega-3 fatty acids, thus calling for advanced nutraceuticals. Both issues are addressed by recent...

The present study focused on the development of a new method to determine the lag phase of Lactobacillus in breast milk which was attained during the 1st, 3rd, and 6th month (M1, M3, and M6). The colonies’ phylogenetic analysis, derived from the 16S rRNA gene sequences, was evaluated with genus Lactobacillus pentosus and achieved a similarity value...
Article
This progress of industry revolution, which involves reutilizing waste materials and simplifying complex procedures of analysis through artificial intelligent (AI), are the current interest in automated industries. There are two main objectives, firstly, the use of waste molasses from sugar mills as a cultivation medium for microalgae and nutrients...

The sustainability of nitrile glove production process is essential both in the financial and energy perspective. Nitrile glove has the lowest material cost with positive mechanical and chemical performance quality for the disposable glove market. Nitrile glove also holds a major market in disposable gloves sector, and nitrile rubber compounds may...
Article
The world energy system faces two major challenges: the requirement for more energy and less carbon. It is important to address biofuels production as an alternative to the usage of fossil fuel by utilizing microalgae as the potential feedstock. Yet, the commercialization of microalgae remains contentious caused by factors relating to the life cycl...
Article
The purpose of this investigation is to evaluate the implementation of ultrasound-assisted liquid biphasic flotation (UALBF) system for the recovery of natural astaxanthin from Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae. Various operating conditions such as the effect of ultrasonication on cellular morphology, the position of ultrasound horn, pulse and con...

Background: The extraction of lipids from microalgae requires a pretreatment process to break the cell wall and subsequent extraction processes to obtain the lipids for biofuels production. The multistep operation tends to incur high costs and are energy intensive due to longer process operations. This research work applies the combination of radi...
Article
The long revolution of nitrile rubber in the rubber industries, especially for lightly crosslinked products has been reviewed in this paper. The advancement is remarkable from the first invention of acrylonitrile butadiene rubber and till date, the physical and chemical properties were elevated. Recent rubber chemists are mainly focus in modifying...
