    • 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 ...
    • Fermentative hydrogen production from cheese whey with in-line, concentration gradient-driven butyric acid extraction 

      Dessì P, Asunis F, Ravishankar H, Cocco FG, De Gioannis G, Muntoni A, Lens PNL; Dessì, Paolo; Asunis, Fabiano; Ravishankar, Harish; Cocco, Francesco Giuseppe; De Gioannis, Giorgia; Muntoni, Aldo; Lens, Piet N.L. (Elsevier, 2020-08-01)
      Hydrogen (H2) generation from cheese whey with simultaneous production and extraction of volatile fatty acids (VFAs) was studied in UASB reactors at two temperatures (20 and 35 °C) and pH values (5.0 and 4.5). The extraction ...
