Take a look on our new paper in Environmental Science and Pollution Research

If you are looking for a simple and reliable tool for estimating the H2S concentration in biogas produced from sulfur-rich effluents, then this is the paper for you!! Check out the theoretical framework here developed and its good fitting to experimental data.

Have a look on our last paper published in Biochemical Engineering Journal

If you are interested in characterizing your microalgal culture this paper is for you!! Here we developed an easy-to-implement protocol for microbiological and kinetic characterization. A nice and low-cost solution for obtaining kinetic parameters for process design/optimization can be also found in this paper.
