Global issues such as environmental problems and food security are currently of concern to all of us. Circular bioeconomy is a promising approach towards resolving these global issues. The production of bioenergy and biomaterials can sustain the energy-environment nexus as well as substitute the devoid of petroleum as the production feedstock, thereby contributing to a cleaner and low carbon environment. In addition, assimilation of waste into bioprocesses for the production of useful products a...

With the rapid urbanisation happening around the world followed by the massive demand for clean energy resources, green cities play a pivotal role in building a sustainable future for the people. The continuing depletion of natural resources has led to the development of renewable energy with algae as the promising source. The high growth rate of microalgae and their strong bio-fixation ability to convert CO2 into O2 have been gaining attention globally and intensive research has been conducted ...

Abstract The remarkable journey of progression of mankind has created various impacts in the form of polluted environment, amassed heavy metals and depleting resources. This alarming situation demands sustainable energy resources and approaches to deal with these environmental hazards and power deficit. Pyrolysis and co-pyrolysis address both energy and environmental issues caused by civilization and industrialization. The processes use hazardous waste materials including waste tires, plastic an...

Abstract There has been increasing attention in osmotically driven membrane processes (ODMPs), which include forward osmosis (FO) and pressure retarded osmosis (PRO). They provide a sustainable solution against water and energy scarcity issues by utilizing the osmotic pressure difference between two water bodies, feed (low salinity) and draw solution (high salinity), across a semipermeable membrane. Indeed, their main applications, water treatment (e.g., desalination and wastewater treatment) an...

Abstract Current practice for C-phycocyanin (CPC) extraction from fresh biomass is greatly perishable, so dried biomass is preferable for longer storage life and saving spaces for small scale industries. However, the resistance of dried biomass towards cell disruption is higher compared to fresh biomass. Therefore, this work aims to develop an effective technique for the extraction of CPC from dried Spirulina sp. This study addresses the effect of sonoprocessing-assisted with liquid biphasic flo...

Abstract This study focuses on the application of the Liquid Biphasic Flotation (LBF) system for the extraction of phenolic compounds using fresh and wilted Persicaria tenella, commonly known as ‘daun kesum’ or ‘laksa leaf’. Persicaria tenella have been studied intensively due to its possession of antioxidant activities which assist in reducing the risk of cancer and various other uses. For fresh samples, the optimum condition was obtained using the combination of 90% (w/w) of ethanol and 300 mg...

l -Asparaginases have the potential to inhibit the formation of acrylamide, a harmful toxin formed during high temperature processing of food. A novel bacterium which produces l -asparaginase was screened. Type I l -asparaginase gene from Acinetobacter soli was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. The recombinant l -asparaginase had an activity of 42.0 IU mL−1 and showed no activity toward l -glutamine and d -asparagine. The recombinant l -asparaginase exhibited maximum catalytic activity a...

Forward osmosis (FO) and pressure-retarded osmosis (PRO) have gained attention recently as potential processes to solve water and energy scarcity problems with advantages over pressure-driven membrane processes. These processes can be designed to produce bioenergy and clean water at the same time (i.e., wastewater treatment with power generation). Despite having significant technological advancement, these bioenergy processes are yet to be implemented in full scale and commercialized due to its ...
