9/23/2021 Congratulation to Zhaohui and Xueyao for their new publication in Food and Bioproducts Processing about single culture biogranulation!

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.fbp.2021.09.012 Abstract: This study utilizes Clostridium beijerinckii P260, an anaerobic bacterium capable of acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) production, as model bacteria to test the hypothesis that single culture anaerobic granulation can be achieved in accordance with the biogranulation theory developed from the mixed culture studies. After four months of cultivation, C. beijerinckii granules formed under the selection…

8/11/2021 Congratulation to Zhaohui and Xueyao for their new publication titled “Aerobic granulation of single culture protist” in Process Biochemistry!

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.procbio.2021.08.014 Abstract: Thraustochytrium striatum was selected as a model protist to test the possibility of protist granulation for its good potential of organic waste valorization. Initially, only a selective settling velocity of 9 m h 1 was applied in a sequential batch reactor (SBR) with minimal granulation progress after three months. After the famine condition…
