Circular Economy Shadows

(Corresponding) Sulich A., Sołoducho-Pelc L.
Topic: 
Ecology, environmental change and management
The effects of the Circular Economy (CE) are positive and negative. However, the beneficial aspects are widely considered. The CE creates a link between economic growth and limited resources by cuts waste from the production system. Therefore, CE is associated with increased prosperity, the...Read more

Enzymatic hydrolysis followed by alcoholic fermentation of prickly pears (Opuntia ficus-indica L.) cladodes and fruits using Saccharomyces cerevisiae E1A

(Corresponding) Karalis J., Arapoglou D., Markou G., Eliopoulos C., Papanikolaou S.
Topic: 
Biowaste
The cultivation and production of biomass of prickly pear is of particular interest due to the fact that it can be grown in arid areas, producing higher amounts of biomass with lower inputs (water, fertilizers etc.) compared to other crops. The present study examines whether enzyme...Read more
