  • Microbiotechnology-based solutions for removal and valorization of waste in pulp and paper industry [Elektronski vir]
    Verdel, Nada ...
    The pulp and paper (P&P) industry is an important industrial sector and the third largest producer of industrial wastewaters in the world. Although the industry has attempted to reduce water ... consumption by completely enclosing their processes, the water (whitewater) cycles and release of pollutants into the environment, this current and past water treatment solutions have failed it to reach their goals. Bioaugmentation of systems for wastewater treatment is an evolving microbiologically-based strategy with a high potential for industrial use. Use of specific microorganisms can help remove even the most resistant organic additives and transform large amounts of the readily available waste compounds, but has a minimal impact on the environment and the reduction of treatment costs. The classical state-of-the-art microbiological treatment approaches and their drawbacks are discussed and the advanced treatment solutions based on cell aggregation and immobilization to engineer artificial microbial communities capable of degrading or transforming a wide repertoire of wastewater components are presented. We describe how the natural properties of microbiological agents can be exploited and present several possibilities showing how microbes can degrade persistent pollutants or transform natural polymers like cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin into novel added-value compounds.
