    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The effect of four parameters (acetate, NaCl, inorganic carbon and days in darkness) affecting the polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) production were tested and optimized for Synechococcus sp. and Synechocystis sp. using a Box-Behnken ...
  • Power assisted MFC-based biosensor for continuous assessment of microbial activity and biomass in freshwater ecosystems 

    Fernández Gatell, Marta; Sánchez Vila, Francisco Javier; Puigagut Juárez, Jaume (Elsevier, 2022-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Microbial activity and biomass are important factors that determine nutrient and carbon fluxes in freshwater ecosystems and, therefore are also related to both water quality and climate change induced stressors. This study ...
  • Accumulation of polyhydroxybutyrate in Synechocystis sp. isolated from wastewaters: effect of salinity, light, and P content in the biomass 

    Rueda Hernández, Estel; González Flo, Eva; Roca Martínez, Lucas; Carretero Ariza, Javier; García Serrano, Joan (Elsevier, 2022-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Cyanobacteria are of particular interest as they can produce Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB), which is a promising alternative to oil-based plastics, using only inorganic carbon and solar light. However, new strategies should ...
  • From the global to the subnational scale: landing the compositional monitoring of drinking water and sanitation services 

    Quispe Coica, Filimon Alejandro; Pérez Foguet, Agustí (Elsevier, 2022-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Monitoring of access to water and sanitation services is stipulated in Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 6.1 and 6.2, respectively. The monitoring is carried out with a global, regional and country vision. However, in ...
