    Biodiesel expansion is currently limited due to high raw material costs for its produc tion. The potential of using sludge from municipal wastewater treatment plants as an alternative lipid feedstock for biodiesel ...
  • Extraction and purification of hydrolytic enzymes from activated sludge 

    Nabarlatz, Debora; Stüber, Frank Erich; Font Capafons, Josep; Fortuny Sanromá, Agustín; Fabregat Llangotera, Azael; Bengoa, Christophe José (2009)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A major proportion of the organic matter contained by domestic wastewater is mainly formed by lipids, proteins and carbohydrates. In order to degrade this organic matter, microorganisms produce hydrolytic enzymes like ...
  • Fenton coupled with nanoflitration for elimination of tartrazine 

    Escalona, I.; Stüber, Frank Erich; Fortuny Sanromá, Agustín; Bengoa, Christophe José; Fabregat Llangotera, Azael; Font Capafons, Josep (2012)

  • Immobilisation of horseradish peroxidase on Eupergit®C for the enzymatic elimination of phenol 

    Pramparo, Laura; Stüber, Frank Erich; Font Capafons, Josep; Fortuny Sanromá, Agustín; Fabregat Llangotera, Azael; Bengoa, Christophe José (2010-05-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this study, three different approaches for the covalent immobilisation of the horseradish peroxidase (HRP) onto epoxy-activated acrylic polymers (Eupergit®C) were explored for the first time, direct HRP binding to the ...
  • Performance comparison of torus and magnetically-stirred reactor for the enzymatic elimination of phenol 

    Pramparo, Laura; Stüber, Frank Erich; Font Capafons, Josep; Fortuny Sanromá, Agustín; Fabregat Llangotera, Azael; Bengoa, Christophe José (2009)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The goal of this work is the comparison of the performances of a torus and a stirred reactor for the enzymatic elimination of phenol. High degrees of conversion were obtained in both reactors for the three initial ...
  • Performance of sludge based catalysts in catalytic wet oxidation of phenol 

    Marques, Rita R.N.; Font Capafons, Josep; Fortuny Sanromá, Agustín; Bengoa, Christophe José; Fabregat Llangotera, Azael; Stüber, Frank Erich (2009)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The catalytic potential of sludge based materials produced by steam or CO2 activation from non treated dewatered raw sludge or dewatered mesophilic anaerobically digested sludge were tested in the oxidation of phenol. ...
  • Phenol degradation by heterogeneous Fenton-like reaction using Fe supported over activated carbon 

    Messele, S. A.; Stüber, Frank Erich; Bengoa, Christophe José; Fortuny Sanromá, Agustín; Fabregat Llangotera, Azael; Font Capafons, Josep (2012)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The main objective of the work is to prepare catalysts based on iron supported over activated carbon (AC) and to test its activity for catalytic wet peroxide oxidation (CWPO) of phenol in a batch system. The catalysts were ...
  • Sewage sludge based catalysts for catalytic wet air oxidation of phenol: preparation, characterisation and catalytic performance 

    Graham, N.J.D.; Fowler, G.D.; Marques, Rita R. N; Stüber, Frank Erich; Smith, K.M; Fabregat Llangotera, Azael; Bengoa, Christophe José; Font Capafons, Josep; Fortuny Sanromá, Agustín; Pullket, S. (2011-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this study the use of novel CWAO catalysts, namely potentially low cost, sewage sludge derived activated carbons was explored. Two types of municipal sludge were used: dewatered raw filter cake and dewatered mesophilic ...
  • Texture-modified activated carbons as catalysts in biodecolourisation of azo dyes 

    Mezohegyi, Gergo; Gonçalves, Filomena; Órfao, José J.M.; Bengoa, Christophe José; Stüber, Frank Erich; Font Capafons, Josep; Fortuny Sanromá, Agustín; Fabregat Llangotera, Azael (2009)
    Conference lecture
