  • Dielectric properties of biodegradable polylactic acid and starch ester

    In order to examine the applicability of biodegradable polymers to the fields of electrical insulation, several dielectric properties of two typical biodegradable polymers, polylactic acid (PLA) and starch ester (SE), are examined. A fairly larger amount of space charge is accumulated in both polymers in comparison to low-density polyethylene (LDPE). This seems partly due to the presence of hydroxyl and carbonyl groups in these polymers. Permittivity and conductivity are higher in SE than PLA that has the values close to those of LDPE. The dielectric breakdown strength is lower in SE and is higher in PLA than LDPE. As for the resistance to photodegradation by ultraviolet photons, SE is stronger than PLA, although the two are much inferior to LDPE.

  • Research and development of biodegradation disposal for SBS (Sugi Bark Sorbent)

    The research on the practical applications of SBS (Sugi Bark Sorbent) which was initiated in 1997 realized a waste material recycled product using 100% natural materials with reduced environmental loads which is comparable to commonly used petroleum products in terms of performance and cost, and reached the stage of commercial production in 2000. For the purpose of reducing total environmental loads in the oil recovery, we investigated biodegradation treatment as a disposal method of SBS after use (after adsorbing oil). It was confirmed that the oil content was reduced from 10000 ppm to 2000-5000 ppm after 1 to several week-period in a biodegradation experiment using Bunker C in the bark compost.

  • Engineering three-dimensional nervous tissue constructs based on fiber-gel substrates

    Three-dimensional (3D) nervous tissue constructs were developed using a compliant gel matrix and a fiber component for promoting contact-guided axon outgrowth. Rat embryonic (E15) dorsal root ganglion expiants (DRGs) were cultured on biodegradable poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and wet-spun type I collagen fibers embedded in soft collagen gels. Gel constructs containing fibers induced greater axon outgrowth distances with significantly more directionality along the aligned fibers. Interestingly, wet-spun type I collagen from rat tail tendon displayed a highly aligned outgrowth pattern from DRG axons suggesting potential use for peripheral nerve repair.

  • Simultaneous organic and strong nitrogen removal from sewage in a pilot-scale BNR process with food waste

    As sewage showing low C/N ratio in Korea has a small, but considerable amount of easily biodegradable organics, it is difficult to remove nutrients effectively. Approximately 11,434 tons of daily food waste that contain a lot of organic materials has been produced. The applicability of food waste as an external carbon source was examined in a pilot-scale BNR (biological nutrients removal) process for about 180 days. As the supply of the external carbon increased, the average removal efficiencies of T-N and T-P increased from 53% and 55% to 97% and 93% respectively. VFAs (volatile fatty acids) concentration of the external carbon source strongly affects denitrification efficiency and EBPR activity. EBPR (enhanced biological phosphorus removal) activity increased when T-N removal efficiency increased from 78% to 97%. In this study, several kinds of intracellularly stored PHAs (poly-hydroxyalkanoates) were observed. These were composed of 31% of 3HB (poly-3-hydroxybutyrate), 47% of 3HV (poly-3-hydroxyvalerate), 9% of 3HH (poly-3-hydroxyhexanoate), 5% of 3HO (poly-3-hydroxyoctanoate), and 2% of 3HD (poly-3-hydroxydecanoate) in biomass.

  • Simulation for Wastewater Treatment Plant WWTP

    At present, activated sludge model has great value and can be used to improve the study, design and optimum operation of wastewater treatment around the world. It has been applied widely in the world. In this paper, the application and calibration of Activated Sludge Model No.l in the practical wastewater treatment plant had been implemented. The characterization and parameter of the outfluent from the rotational flow grit chamber had been measured in the WWTP. The actual operation procedure is simulated in case of both steady and dynamic status using simulation software named as WEST, which is from DHI. Where after different simulation analysis is done to analyses the problems exist in this factory, and hence based on the analysis result, the optimized suggestion is arised. The result shows that the method of characterization and parameter in this paper can is practical. The heterotrophic yield coefficient YH, Heterotrophic max specific growth rateμmax, heterotrophic decay rate bH, readily biodegradable substrate Ss and slowly biodegradable substrate XScould be characterized by the method of batch OUR respirometric experiments which is simple to calculate, and especially the outcome date is stable.The WEST software was used to simulate the real operation of the WWTP, the result shows that using the combination of test mensuration and model calibration, good simulation results were achieved though changing of the model parameters.The activated sludge model which was promoted by the IAWQ can be used as a useful tool in operation management, technical improvement and scientific research in WWTPs. Nevertheless WEST software which was based on the activated sludge model could simulate the performance of activated sludge process and provide valuable advices for directing WWTPs.

  • The effect of P-Trp, P-Ala and P-Val on the proliferation rate of HeLa cells in culture

    The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of various biomedical polymers on the adhesion rate of HeLa cells as a model. The HeLa cells used in this study seeded by following our standard laboratory procedure. A total of 1/spl times/10/sup 5/ cells were plated in each of the pretreated wells with various concentrations of (0.01, 0.1, and 1% wt/vol) polyvaline (P-Val), polyalanine (p-Ala), polytryptophan (P-Trp) and buffered control. At the end of 1,4, and 24 hours the assay was developed by following standard lab procedure. The final determination was achieved by means of ELIZA. The data obtained from this study suggest that (i) the rate of HeLa spreading was strongly influenced by both incubation time and the polymer concentration, (ii) it is apparent that polymer treated wells within the first hour facilitated attachment of HeLa cells to their surfaces for all concentrations tested with the exception of 1% alanine. This observation confirms our previous results using different cell lines and provides a valuable information for experiments that need to be performed in a short period of time with the maximum amount of cells attached, (iii) the surface attachment of HeLa to P-Ala, P-Val, and P-Trp were demonstrated to vary depending on their chemical structure and level of microporosity. Thus, overall observation led us to conclude that the surface reactivity of P-Ala, P-Val, and P-Trp be always taken into account in discussing their biocompatibility using transformed cells such as HeLa cells as a model.

  • The Influences of Tween60 and Rhamnolipid on the Bioremediation of n-Hexadecane

    The influences of adding Tween60 and rhamnolipid on n-hexadecane biodegradation and cell surface characteristics such as cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) release for two strains of Pseudomonas and Sphingomonas were investigated. The results showed that the additions of Tween60 and rhamnolipid have different effects on the strains of Pseudomonas and Sphingomonas as these two strains degrade n-hexadecane by different modes. The addition of rhamnolipid has a positive influence on the biodegradation of n-hexadecane for both the strains of the Pseudomonas and Sphingomonas. While the addition of Tween60 showed inhibition on the n-hexadecane biodegradation for both the strains of the Pseudomonas and Sphingomona. It could found that the addition of rhamnolipid could enhance the LPS release and increase the CSH for both of two strains, which can cause the sell surface of two strains of Pseudomonas and Sphingomona to become more hydrophobic, so increase the direct contact between the bacteria cell to the hydrocarbons. For the strain of Pseudomonas, the addition of Tween60 has no evident influence on the LPS release and has slightly effect on CSH. And the addition of Tween60 changed the LPS release to the supernatant very slightly and decreased the CSH of strain Sphingomonas dramatically.

  • Nanomaterials for osteoporosis treatment

    In osteoporosis research, there are several major barriers that exist for the use of any pharmaceutical agents to stimulate new bone formation. Because of these limitations that even the best strategies to sufficiently increase bone mass (although, to date, still unproven) require at least one year to see any change; a time period not acceptable especially for the elderly. For these reasons, in this study we used nanotechnology (or the design of materials with 10/sup -9/ m dimensions) to develop novel drug-carrying systems that will specifically attach to osteoporotic (not healthy) bone. Moreover, some of these novel drug carrying systems will then distribute pharmaceutical agents locally to quickly increase bone mass. Efforts will focus on the prolonged release of bioactive agents (bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2)) to efficiently regenerate enough bone for the patient to return to a normal active lifestyle. Particularly, inorganic biodegradable nanomaterials (including ceramics like hydroxyapatite or HA) will be functionalized with bioactive chemicals. Such bioactive groups will be placed on the outer surface of the nanoparticle systems using various techniques. The outer coating of the embedded nanoparticle systems will also be created to have different biodegradation rates for the controlled release of embedded bioactive agents to the target site.
