- Factors affecting constancy of acetate concentration and correct determination of methanogenic activity in pH-stat experimentsM Mösche
Laboratorium für Technische Chemie, Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule, HCI F 112, Zurich, Switzerland
Water Sci Technol 48:111-8. 2003..In this way a better constancy of acetate concentration and a more accurate determination of methanogenic activity should be achievable. The accuracy of this method is limited by the stability of pH-electrode calibration parameters...
- Toxicity of linear alkylbenzene sulfonate in anaerobic digestion: influence of exposure timeM Mösche
Laboratory of Technical Chemistry, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH, Zurich
Water Res 36:3253-60. 2002..This discrepancy is explained by adsorption of the surfactant to the biomass. Finally, the importance of the presented kinetic model and the significance of surfactant toxicity for anaerobic digestion are discussed...
- Anaerobic digestion of alcohol sulfate (anionic surfactant) rich wastewater--batch experiments. Part II: influence of the hydrophobic chain lengthH Feitkenhauer
Laboratorium für Technische Chemie, ETH Hönggerberg HCI, Zurich, Switzerland
Bioresour Technol 82:123-9. 2002..The presented data can be used as a basis for the selection of suitable surfactants that do not (or not seriously) inhibit the anaerobic digestion of industrial effluents...
