  • Direct liquid-liquid extraction of lipid from municipal sewage sludge for biodiesel production 

    Olkiewicz, Magdalena; Caporgno, Martin Pablo; Fortuny Sanromá, Agustín; Stüber, Frank Erich; Fabregat Llagostera, Azael; Font Capafons, Josep; Bengoa, Christophe José (2014-12-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Municipal sludge from wastewater treatment plants is a promising lipid feedstock for biodiesel production as it contains a significant amount of lipids. However, the energy necessary to remove its high water content is a ...

    Article
    Open Access
    Background The toxic effects and environmental impact of nanomaterials, and in particular of Fullerene particles, are matters of serious concern. It has been reported that fullerene molecules enter the cell membrane and ...
  • Effects of pre-treatments on the lipid extraction and biodiesel production from municipal WWTP sludge 

    Olkiewicz, Magdalena; Fortuny Sanromá, Agustín; Stüber, Frank Erich; Fabregat Llagostera, Azael; Font Capafons, Josep; Bengoa, Christophe José (2015-02-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Biodiesel production is currently limited due to high raw material costs. The potential of using sludge from municipal wastewater treatment plants as an alternative lipid feedstock was investigated. Four different types ...

    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Ubiquinone (UQ) is one of the main electron and proton shuttle molecules in biological systems, and dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) is one of the most used model lipids. Supported planar bilayers (SPBs) are extensively ...
  • Numerical simulation of the dynamics of fluid membranes 

    Grosjean, Laurence (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2008-07)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    The goal of this project is to explore the mechanics of lipid fluid membranes as found in biological and made-man systems through continuum models and numerical simulations. Traditionally, the focus has been on the ...
