Sustainability, Vol. 9, Pages 576: Life Cycle Assessment of Lubricant Oil Plastic Containers in Brazil

10-Apr-2017 | Oliveira, Maria Clara; Magrini, Alessandra, Sustainability, 2017

Brazil, like many emerging countries, has experienced a fast growth in the demand for automobiles in recent decades. This has produced a significant increase in the amount of hazardous waste to be disposed of, including used lubricant oil. Restrictive regulations are being used by many nations to ...


Mercury Speciation and Distribution in an Egyptian Natural Gas Processing Plant

10-Nov-2016 | Mohamed F. Ezzeldin; Zuzana Gajdosechova; Mohamed B. Masod; Tamer Zaki; Jörg Feldmann; Eva M. Krupp, Energy & Fuels, 2016

Unprocessed petroleum hydrocarbons often contain high concentrations of mercury (Hg), which can severely damage the metal components of a processing plant and pose a health risk to the workers and the natural environment. Although Hg removal units can significantly reduce the Hg concentration in ...


Freezing and Thawing Characteristics of Some Selected Nigerian Soups

22-Feb-2016 | Akeem Olayemi Raji, Rahman Akinoso, Uche Ibanga, Monsurat Oyewale Raji, Journal of Food Process Engineering, 2016

Abstract Freezing and thawing characteristics of some Nigerian soups (Ila, Ewedu, Ogbono and Kuka) were investigated. The soups were prepared using standard recipe and packaged in plastic and aluminum containers, frozen at −20C and thawed with microwave oven water (2.45 GHz), hot water (100C) ...


Comparison of Salt and Drought‐Stress Effects on Maize Growth and Yield Formation with Regard to Acid Invertase Activity in the Kernels

18-Dec-2014 | B. W. Hütsch, S. Jung, S. Schubert, Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science, 2014

Abstract The long‐term effects of salt stress (11dSm−1) and drought stress (35% WHC) were investigated for two maize genotypes, focusing on the relation between metabolic changes around the time of pollination and the impact on yield determinants at maturity. The relatively salt‐resistant ...


Influences of rennet and container types on proteolysis of traditional Kurdish cheese during the ripening

12-Jul-2013 | Majid Hashemi, Farideh Tabatabaee Yazdi, Masoud Yavarmanesh, Elnaz Milani, Atena Pasban, International Journal of Dairy Technology, 2013

The effect of rennet and container types was evaluated on proteolysis of traditional Kurdish cheese during 60days ripening. The enzymes involved were commercial chymosin and traditional rennet from lamb abomasum. Goat skin (traditional container) and plastic containers were used as storage ...


Plastic as a Carrier of POPs to Aquatic Organisms: A Model Analysis

28-Jun-2013 | Albert A. Koelmans; Ellen Besseling; Anna Wegner; Edwin M. Foekema, Environmental Science & Technology, 2013

It has been hypothesized that persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in microplastic may pose a risk to aquatic organisms. Here we develop and analyze a conceptual model that simulates the effects of plastic on bioaccumulation of POPs. The model accounts for dilution of exposure concentration by ...


226Ra measurements through gamma spectrometric counting of radon progenies: How significant is the loss of radon?

24-Mar-2013 | Marine Chemistry, 2013

Available online 18 March 2013 Publication year: 2013Source:Marine Chemistry Most determinations of 226Ra are based on gamma spectrometric measurements of 226Ra progenies 214Pb and 214Bi. This approach assumes radioactive equilibrium between these radionuclides which is normally ...


Organoleptic and Chemical Changes during Storage of Sea Bass Marinades (Dicentrarchus labrax L., 1758)

09-Jan-2013 | Gülderen Kurt Kaya, Özden Baştürk, Journal of Food Processing and Preservation, 2013

Abstract Chemical and organoleptic changes in sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) preserved at 4C for 200 days have been investigated in this study. To prepare the fish fillets for study, they were put, at a ratio of 1:1.5 (fish : marinade brine), for marination into the brine containing 11% salt ...


Acidification of Alperujo Paste Prevents Off-Odors During Their Storage in Open Air

13-Nov-2012 | M. V. Ruiz-Méndez, C. Romero, E. Medina, A. García, A. de Castro, M. Brenes, Journal of the American Oil Chemists' Society, 2012

Alperujo is the main paste produced by the olive oil industry that must be stored in big open air ponds for months before pomace olive oil is extracted. During this period, malodorous 4-ethylphenol is formed, and it represents a big environmental problem for the oil extracting factories. The aim ...


Caution on the storage of waters and aqueous solutions in plastic containers for hydrogen and oxygen stable isotope analysis

02-Oct-2012 | Jorge E. Spangenberg, Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry, 2012

RATIONALE The choice of containers for storage of aqueous samples between their collection, transport and water hydrogen (2H) and oxygen (18O) stable isotope analysis is a topic of concern for a wide range of fields in environmental, geological, biomedical, food, and forensic sciences. The ...
