Sammanfattning : Biodegradation of aliphatic and polycyclic aromatichydrocarbons was studied in soil and liquid cultures attemperatures ranging from -5 º C to 20 º C undervarious aerobic or anaerobic, nitrate reducing, conditions. Twocontaminated soils were used in the studies. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Currently, over 100 high-volume chemicals have been classified as endocrine disrupters. One of these is nonylphenol, which was used as the model compound in this study. This substance originates mainly from the degradation of non-ionic surfactants (nonylphenol ethoxylates) which are widely used in industrial and domestic applications. LÄS MER
3. Tuning the long-term properties to control biodegradation by surface modifications of agricultural fibres in biocomposites
Sammanfattning : Sustainable polymeric materials put emphasis on mastering the whole life-cycle of polymeric materials. This includes the choice of raw materials, selection of synthesis and processing, environmental impact during long-term use followed by detailed knowledge about recycling and waste management. LÄS MER
4. How to estimate environmental persistence : Understanding persistence of organic micropollutants in rivers from a multidisciplinary perspective
Sammanfattning : Organic micropollutants such as food additives, pharmaceuticals and personal care products are found in rivers worldwide. Persistence is a key criteria in chemical risk assessment as micropollutants that are persistent pose an exposure hazard to humans and the environment. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Many factors can influence the rate of microbial degradation of organic contaminants in aquifers. Some of these factors, e.g. LÄS MER
