Using hybrid packing materials in biofiltration systems takes advantage of both the inorganic and organic properties offered by the medium including structural stability and a source of available nutrients, respectively. In this study, hybrid mixtures of compost with either lava rock or biochar in four different mixture ratios were compared against 100% compost in a methane biofilter with active a ...

- ... BACKGROUND: Compounds such as furfural and 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (5-HMF) are generated through the dehydration of xylose and glucose, respectively, during dilute-acid pretreatment of lignocellulosic biomass and are also potent microbial growth and fermentation inhibitors. The enzymatic reduction of these furan aldehydes to their corresponding, and less toxic, alcohols is an engineering approach ...

- ... D.R. Zeigler determined that the sequence identity of bacterial genomes can be predicted accurately using the sequence identities of a corresponding set of genes that meet certain criteria . This three-gene model for comparing bacterial genome pairs requires the determination of the sequence identities for recN, thdF, and rpoA. This involves the generation of approximately 4.2kb of genomic DNA ...
