    Wageningen PhD theses

    This database contains bibliographic descriptions of all Wageningen University PhD theses from 1920 onwards. It is updated on a daily basis by WUR Library.

    Author abstracts and/or summaries are added to all descriptions. A link to the full text dissertation is added to the bibliographic description. In a few cases, no electronic version is available, mostly because of copyright issues.

    Hard copies of all theses are available for loan at WUR Library. To request them, click the link Request this publication in the full record presentation. This is a fee based service.

biobased economy - proteins - anaerobic digesters - sludges

Many industries, such as leather tanning, agro-food, fisheries, petroleum, petrochemical and textile dyeing industries generate highly polluted saline wastewater. It is estimated that approximately 5% of the globally generated wastewater is hypersaline (salinity above 3.5%). For example, it has been assessed that the petroleum industry alone already generates approximately 39.5 million m3 of wastewater per day. Because salts have a negative effect on microbial activity, biological treatment processes usually are not considered for such wastewaters. Such wastewater streams therefore are generally treated with physical-chemical processes. However, physical-chemical methods are energy intensive and require a lot of chemicals. Hence, there is a need to explore possibilities to replace them by more sustainable biological treatment methods. In particular anaerobic biological treatment should be considered because it: i) converts the organic pollutants in the wastewater into energy-rich biogas, consisting mainly of CH4 and CO2; ii) only requires a small amount of energy for operation; iii) produces a small amount of bio-solids requiring further disposal.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
