The Effects of Biodiesel and Crude Oil on the Foraging Behavior of Rusty Crayfish, Orconectes rusticus.
Environmental pollutants, such as crude oil and other petroleum-based fuels, inhibit and limit an organism's ability to perceive a chemical stimulus. Despite the increased use of alternative fuels, such as biodiesel, there have been few studies inves

Zeolitic [email protected] Adsorbents for the Selective Removal of Free Glycerol from Crude Biodiesel.
Selective adsorption of free glycerol from crude biodiesel was investigated by using mesoporous silica spheres coated with a thin shell of microporous silicalite-1. A polycrystalline silicalite-1 shell was formed upon first covering the external surf

Biodiesel Production from Chlorella protothecoides Oil by Microwave-Assisted Transesterification.
In this study, biodiesel production from microalgal oil by microwave-assisted transesterification was carried out to investigate its efficiency. Transesterification reactions were performed by using Chlorella protothecoides oil as feedstock, methanol

Conversion of crude Jatropha curcas seed oil into biodiesel using liquid recombinant Candida rugosa lipase isozymes.
The versatile Candida rugosa lipase (CRL) has been widely used in biotechnological applications. However, there have not been feasibility reports on the transesterification of non-edible oils to produce biodiesel using the commercial CRL preparations

High production of 2,3-butanediol from biodiesel-derived crude glycerol by metabolically engineered Klebsiella oxytoca M1.
2,3-Butanediol (2,3-BDO) is a promising bio-based chemical because of its wide industrial applications. Previous studies on microbial production of 2,3-BDO has focused on sugar fermentation. Alternatively, biodiesel-derived crude glycerol can be used

Conversion of crude oil to methane by a microbial consortium enriched from oil reservoir production waters.
The methanogenic biodegradation of crude oil is an important process occurring in petroleum reservoirs and other oil-containing environments such as contaminated aquifers. In this process, syntrophic bacteria degrade hydrocarbon substrates to product

Feasibility studies on arsenic removal from aqueous solutions by electrodialysis.
The effectiveness of electrodialysis (ED) in removing inorganic arsenic (As) from aqueous solution was investigated. A tailor-made ED stack was used to perform current-voltage and optimization experiments in a recirculating batch mode. Samples were p

Effect of crude oil exposure and dispersant application on meiofauna: an intertidal mesocosm experiment.
Dispersant application is used as a response technique to minimize the environmental risk of an oil spill. In nearshore areas, dispersant application is a controversial countermeasure: environmental benefits are counteracted by the toxicity of disper

Effects of crude oil and dispersed crude oil on the critical swimming speed of puffer fish, Takifugu rubripes.
In order to examine the effects of crude oil and dispersed crude oil (DCO) on the swimming ability of puffer fish, Takifugu rubripes, the critical swimming speeds (U crit) of fish exposed to different concentrations of water-soluble fraction (WSF) of

Application of liquid-phase microextraction for the determination of sulfur compounds in crude oil and diesel.
A liquid-phase microextraction (LPME) method was for the first time developed for the determination of sulfur compounds in Arabian crude oil and diesel. A wide range of sulfur compounds, which included benzothiophene, dibenzothiophene and their deriv
