      Breitenmoser, Lena; Dhar, Hiya; Gross, Thomas; Bakre, Milan; Huesch, Ragini; Hugi, Christoph; Wintgens, Thomas; Kumar, Rakesh; Kumar, Sunil (2018-04)
      Anaerobic digestion (AD) of biowaste can generate biogas with methane (CH4) as energy source and contribute to sustainable municipal solid waste management in India. Characteristic municipal biowastes sampled seasonally ...
    • Methodological approaches for fractionation and speciation to estimate trace element bioavailability in engineered anaerobic digestion ecosystems: an overview 

      Hullebusch, E D; Guibaud, G; Simon, S; Lenz, Markus; Shakeri Yekta, S; Fermoso, F G; Jain, R; Duester, L; Roussel, J; Guillon, E; Skyllberg, U; Almeida, C M R; Pechaud, Y; Garuti, M; Frunzo, L; Esposito, G; Carliell-Marquet, C; Ortner, M; Collins, G (2016)
      Optimal supply of trace elements (TE) is a prerequisite for microbial growth and activity in anaerobic digestion (AD) bioprocesses. However, the required concentrations and ratios of essential TE for AD biotechnologies ...
