    Review on Dye Degradability by Enzymatic Method in a Bioreactor

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mansouri Majoumerd, Mohammad (Author) ; Kariminia, Hamid Reza (Supervisor)
    Effective parameters on decolourization of Sumifix Black B or Reactive Black 5 (RB5) by the extracted peroxidase from Coprinus Cinereus NBRC 30628 in a bioreactor have been reviewed in this master thesis. These parameters were such as hydrogen peroxide concentration, pH of dye solution, enzymatic activity and hydraulic retention time. All of these parameters were optimized in such condition that enzyme solution was added to bioreactor at the initial time of reaction. Optimum concentration for hydrogen peroxide, pH, dye concentration, and hydraulic retention time in above mentioned condition of reactor were 96.1 mM, 8, 40 ppm, and 60 min, respectively. It is worth to note that the higher... 

    Experimental Investigation of Electricity Generation in Dual Chamber Microbial Fuel Cell- Effective Parameters in Cathode Chamber

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Bakhshian, Sahar (Author) ; Kariminia, Hamid Reza (Supervisor) ; Roshandel, Ramin (Supervisor)
    Two major challenges facing countries all around the world are the demand for renewable energy resources and treatment of large quantities of industrial and household wastewaters. One of the new and environmentally acceptable methods to produce green energy is Microbial Fuel Cells (MFCs), which has been noted by many researchers in recent years. MFC is a new technology which has the ability to produce green energy along with treatment of wastewater stream, based on oxidation of organic maters through microbial metabolism. In this study we investigated the effects of different cathode chamber parameters on operation and efficiency of a two chamber MFC at laboratory scale. These parameters... 

    Biodecolourization and Biodetoxification of Dye-containing Wastewaters from Textile Dyeing by the Native Fungal Strain Phanerochaete Chrysosporium and Trametes Species

    Treatment of Wastewater of textile industries has been always challenging due to the high organic matter which is a suitable substrate for the growth of microorganisms. Also, discharge of wastewater into the open water causes water adsorbing more sunlight, raising water temperature and therefor decreasing dissolved oxygen. In addition, the acidity of wastewater decreases the quality of agricultural soil. Among wastewater treatment methods, biological methods are cheaper, environment friendly, and produce less by product. Among all the microorganism responsible for biological treatment, fungi and enzymes are more applicable. Especially white-rot fungi are the most effective microorganism to...
