Gut eukaryotic communities in pigs: diversity, composition and host genetics contribution
(Animal Microbiome, 2020-05-07) Genètica i Millora Animal; Gestió Integral de Residus Orgànics
Background The pig gut microbiome harbors thousands of species of archaea, bacteria, viruses and eukaryotes such as protists and fungi. However, since the majority of published studies have been focused ...
Breeding farm, level of feeding and presence of antibiotics in the feed influence rabbit cecal microbiota
(Animal Microbiome, 2020-11-02) Genètica i Millora Animal; Gestió Integral de Residus Orgànics
Background The effect of the production environment and different management practices in rabbit cecal microbiota remains poorly understood. While previous studies have proved the impact of the age or ...
Transfer of manure from livestock farms to crop fields as fertilizer using an ant inspired approach
(ISPRS Annals of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences, 2020-08-03) Gestió Integral de Residus Orgànics
Intensive livestock production might have a negative environmental impact, by producing large amounts of animal excrements, which, if not properly managed, can contaminate nearby water bodies with ...
Influence of pH and Temperature on Struvite Purity and Recovery from Anaerobic Digestate
(Sustainability, 2021-09-27) Gestió Integral de Residus Orgànics
The precipitation of struvite (MgNH4PO4.6H2O) from wastewater streams simultaneosuly recovers nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) for reuse as fertilisers. Struvite crystallisation is controlled by pH, ...
The determination of fertiliser quality of the formed struvite from a WWTP
(Water Science and Technology, 2021-04-27) Gestió Integral de Residus Orgànics
Struvite from nutrient-rich wastewaters has been identified as a potential substitute for commercial mineral fertilisers, with the added benefit of reducing threats to global food security by prolonging ...
