    Multiple data sets and modelling choices in a comparative LCA of disposable beverage cups

    This study used multiple data sets and modelling choices in an environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) to compare typical disposable beverage cups made from polystyrene (PS), polylactic acid (PLA; bioplastic) and paper lined with bioplastic (biopaper). Incineration and recycling were considered as waste processing options, and for the PLA and biopaper cup also composting and anaerobic digestion. Multiple data sets and modelling choices were systematically used to calculate average results and the spread in results for each disposable cup in eleven impact categories. The LCA results of all combinations of data sets and modelling choices consistently identify three processes that dominate the environmental impact: (1) production of the cup's basic material (PS, PLA, biopaper), (2) cup manufacturing, and (3) waste processing. The large spread in results for impact categories strongly overlaps among the cups, however, and therefore does not allow a preference for one type of cup material. Comparison of the individual waste treatment options suggests some cautious preferences. The average waste treatment results indicate that recycling is the preferred option for PLA cups, followed by anaerobic digestion and incineration. Recycling is slightly preferred over incineration for the biopaper cups. There is no preferred waste treatment option for the PS cups. Taking into account the spread in waste treatment results for all cups, however, none of these preferences for waste processing options can be justified. The only exception is composting, which is least preferred for both PLA and biopaper cups. Our study illustrates that using multiple data sets and modelling choices can lead to considerable spread in LCA results. This makes comparing products more complex, but the outcomes more robust.

    Scaling of sound emission energy and fracture behavior of cellular solid foods

    self-organized criticality - acoustic-emission - dynamic fracture - crackling noise - model - precursors - paper - dry
    A detailed study was performed of the fracture behavior of toasted rusk rolls, a cellular solid food, at different water activities and morphologies. We find that the energies of the emitted sound pulses follow Gutenberg-Richter power laws with characteristic exponents b~1.5. The scaling exponents varied only within a range of 0.2 when the method of fracture, humidity, or morphology was changed. However, differences in b were observed, indicating nonuniversal behavior, that seems to be related to morphology and water activity. Also, power law scaling behavior was observed for the waiting time distributions with an exponent a~1.9.
    Options to reduce the environmental impact by eucalyptus-based Kraft pulp industry in Thailand: model description
    Jawjit, W. ; Kroeze, C. ; Soontaranun, W. ; Hordijk, L. - \ 2007

    biomass - paper
    Kraft pulp industry contributes to several environmental problems, including global warming, acidification, eutrophication, smog, toxicity and the production of solid waste. The objective of this study is to identify options to reduce the environmental pressure caused by Kraft pulp industry in Thailand, and to describe a model that quantifies the environmental impact. The model can be used to evaluate the effects of the options on the environmental impact, and the associated costs. The model includes 14 groups of options to reduce emissions and the production of waste.

    l(+)-lactic acid - fermentation - physiology - glucose - biomass - paper
    Lignocellulosic biomass is considered nowadays to be an economically attractive carbohydrate feedstock for large-scale fermentation of bulk chemicals such as lactic acid. The filamentous fungus Rhizopus oryzae is able to grow in mineral medium with glucose as sole carbon source and to produce optically pure l(+)-lactic acid. Less is known about the conversion by R. oryzae of pentose sugars such as xylose, which is abundantly present in lignocellulosic hydrolysates. This paper describes the conversion of xylose in synthetic media into lactic acid by ten R. oryzae strains resulting in yields between 0.41 and 0.71 g g¿1. By-products were fungal biomass, xylitol, glycerol, ethanol and carbon dioxide. The growth of R. oryzae CBS 112.07 in media with initial xylose concentrations above 40 g l¿1 showed inhibition of substrate consumption and lactic acid production rates. In case of mixed substrates, diauxic growth was observed where consumption of glucose and xylose occurred subsequently. Sugar consumption rate and lactic acid production rate were significantly higher during glucose consumption phase compared to xylose consumption phase. Available xylose (10.3 g l¿1) and glucose (19.2 g l¿1) present in a mild-temperature alkaline treated wheat straw hydrolysate was converted subsequently by R. oryzae with rates of 2.2 g glucose l¿1 h¿1 and 0.5 g xylose l¿1 h¿1. This resulted mainly into the product lactic acid (6.8 g l¿1) and ethanol (5.7 g l¿1)

    A novel colanic acid-degrading enzyme was isolated from a mixed culture filtrate obtained by enrichment culturing of a compost sample using colanic acid as carbon source. The enzyme was partially purified resulting in a 17-fold increase in specific activity. Further purification by Native PAGE revealed that the enzyme is part of a high-molecular weight multi protein complex of at least six individual proteins. The enzyme showed a temperature optimum at 50 °C while after 5 h at 50 °C and pH 7 still 70% of the total activity was left. The pH optimum was found to be pH 7. Analysis of the degradation products showed that the enzyme is a novel 1,4-ß-fucoside hydrolase that liberates repeating units of colanic acid with varying degrees of acetylation. Km and Vmax of the enzyme were determined against the native substrate as well as its de-O-acetylated and depyruvated forms. Compared to the native substrate the affinity of the enzyme for the modified substrates was much lower. However, for the de-O-acetylated sample a dramatic increase in catalytic efficiency was observed. The native form of the substrate showed substrate inhibition at high concentrations, probably due to the formation of nonproductive substrate complexes. Removal of the acetyl groups probably prevents this effect resulting in a higher catalytic efficiency.
