Hydrolysis, where the complex insoluble organic matter is hydrolyzed by hydrolytic enzymes, is regarded as rate-limiting step for anaerobic digestion of waste activated sludge (WAS). The cascade system, which consisted of small-reactors in series, was developed in this study to enhance the hydrolysis rate. Degradation efficiency of sludge was...

Introduction | Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the number one cause of death worldwide. Individuals with a high risk of developing CVD are nowadays mainly treated with cholesterol lowering drugs. Although disease risk can be lowered by a maximum of 40% in this way, a significant untreatable residual risk is left. Therefore, there is a big...

BACKGROUND.Implant-associated infection (IAI) is a rising complication in bone-related medical treatments using metal implants. Preventive measures, such as implant surfaces with integrated antibacterial properties, are hence required. The emergence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens has led to a growing interest in inorganic nanoparticles as...

Large amounts of residual waste activated sludge are produced as by-products during biological wastewater treatment processes. Anaerobic digestion is a widely accepted stabilisation method for waste activated sludge (WAS) treatment. However, the application of anaerobic digestion is limited by the long retention time and low degradation...

The use of material properties to guide cell behaviour is often utilised in the field of regenerative medicine. Regarding this, surface topography has been shown to control different cellular processes. In nature, topographies exist in a wide variety of shapes, including hierarchical structures with a great degree of surface roughness. Here,...

In recent years, bone tissue engineering has emerged as a promising strategy to overcome the limitations of current ‘gold standard’ treatment options for bone disorders such as bone autografts and allografts. Bone tissue engineering strategies rely on the development of a scaffold that mimics the extracellular matrix, thereby providing an...
