Abstract

Powering Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems with Renewable Energy (RE) is essential for decarbonising water production. Integration of RE requires large-scale RO plants to operate efficiently using variable power. Nevertheless, variable operation (involving matching the RO load to available power without...

Four agro-wastes were evaluated as substrates for bioethanol pro-duction. Seven of the pioneer isolates in the production of cellulase, xylanase and laccase enzymes were selected for soluble sugar and bioethanol production. The highest level of soluble sugar was produced on sugar beet pulp followed...
