    • Carboxylic acids production and electrosynthetic microbial community evolution under different CO2 feeding regimes 

      Dessì, Paolo; Sánchez, Carlos; Mills, Simon; Cocco, Francesco Giuseppe; Isipato, Marco; Ijaz, Umer Z.; Collins, Gavin; Lens, Piet N.L. (Elsevier, 2020-10-15)
      Microbial electrosynthesis (MES) is a potential technology for CO2 recycling, but insufficient information is available on the microbial interactions underpinning electrochemically-assisted reactions. In this study, a MES ...
    • The dairy biorefinery: Integrating treatment processes for cheese whey valorisation 

      Asunis, Fabiano; De Gioannis, Giorgia; Dessì, Paolo; Isipato, Marco; Lens, Piet N.L.; Muntoni, Aldo; Polettini, Alessandra; Pomi, Raffaella; Rossi, Andreina; Spiga, Daniela (Elsevier, 2020-08-28)
      With an estimated worldwide production of 190 billion kg per year, and due to its high organic load, cheese whey represents a huge opportunity for bioenergy and biochemicals production. Several physical, chemical and ...
    • Propionate production by bioelectrochemically-assisted lactate fermentation and simultaneous CO2 recycling 

      Isipato, Marco; Dessì, Paolo; Sánchez, Carlos; Mills, Simon; Ijaz, Umer Z.; Asunis, Fabiano; Spiga, Daniela; De Gioannis, Giorgia; Mascia, Michele; Collins, Gavin; Muntoni, Aldo; Lens, Piet N. L. (Frontiers Media, 2020-12-15)
      Production of volatile fatty acids (VFAs), fundamental building blocks for the chemical industry, depends on fossil fuels but organic waste is an emerging alternative substrate. Lactate produced from sugar-containing waste ...
