    Food waste in hospitals is of major concern for two reasons: first, healthcare needs to move toward preventative and demand led models for sustainability and second, food system sustainability needs to seek preventative ...
  • Handschuh, Harald; O'Dwyer, Jean; Adley, Catherine C. (MDPI, 2015)
    The travelling population is increasing globally year on year. International tourist arrival figures reached 1087 million in 2013 and 1133 million in 2014; of which 53% and 54% respectively accounted for air transport. ...
  • Lynch, Deirdre; Low, Fiona; Henihan, Anne Marie; Garcia, Alberto; Kwapinski, Witold; Zhang, Lian; Leahy, James J. (American Chemical Society, 2014)
    In this study, we have examined the behavior of heavy metals during fluidized bed combustion of poultry litter. Heavy metals examined include As, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Hg, Mn, Mo, Ni, Pb, V, and Zn. Solid and gaseous streams ...
  • Madison, Olga; Ryan-Fogarty, Yvonne (2012)
    Eco-Schools international programme is one of five programmes of FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education). In each participating country it is run by a FEE-member NGO, In Ireland in is run by An Taisce and in Russia ...
  • Kwapinski, Witold; Byrne, Corinna M.P.; Kryachko, Ekaterina; Wolfram, Przemyslaw; Adley, Catherine C.; Leahy, James J.; Novotny, Etelvino Henrique; Hayes, Michael H.B. (Springer Netherlands, 2010)
    There is an increasing realisation that biomass and organic wastes are valuable feedstocks for second generation biorefining processes that give rise to platform chemicals to substitute for dwindling petrochemical resources, ...
  • Wianecka, Magdalena Teresa (University of Limerick, 2011)
    The eukaryotic voltage-gated sodium channel Nav is an integral membrane protein that transports sodium across the cell membrane. While the Nav has a four-domain structure with six α-helical transmembrane segments in each ...
  • Hudson, Sarah P.; Padera, Robert F; Langer, Robert; Kohane, Daniel S. (Elsevier, 2008)
    Micro- and nano-mesoporous silicate particles are considered potential drug delivery systems because of their ordered pore structures, large surface areas and the ease with which they can be chemically modified. However, ...
  • Noor, Mohamed R. (University of Limerick, 2012)
    While abundantly evident that thermophilic organisms are adapted to grow at high temperatures, the exact thermoadaptation mechanisms are often very subtle. Various membrane-bound respiratory oxidases have been characterised ...
  • Xiao, Xinxin; Edmond, Magner (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)
    We report the first example of a biofuel cell operating in organic solvents. The cell utilises glucose oxidase and bilirubin oxidase immobilised on nanoporous gold. The power output of the cell decreases with increasing ...
  • Bowen, Barry; Lynch, Declan; Lynch, Deirdre; Henihan, Anne Marie; Leahy, James J.; McDonnell, Kevin (MDPI, 2010)
    The spreading of poultry litter in recent years has led to a serious increase in levels of eutrophication, nitrate leaching, high Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), ammonia toxicity, high chlorine concentrations and pathogen ...
  • Ryan, Michael P.; Walsh, Gary (Springer, 2016)
    Whey is a highly polluting by-product of cheese and casein powder manufacture with worldwide production of whey estimated at around 190 × 106 ton/year and growing. Historically whey was considered a burdensome, environmentally ...
  • Ryan, Michael P.; Pembroke, Tony J. (Taylor and Francis, 2018)
    Non-fermenting Gram-negative bacteria are problematic in clinical locations, being one of the mostprevalent causes of nosocomial infections. Many of these non-fermenting Gram-negative bacteriaare opportunistic pathogens ...
  • Svärd, Michael; Hjorth, Timothy; Bohlin, Martin; Rasmuson, Åke C. (American Chemical Society, 2016)
    The solid liquid solubility of the title compound has been measured by a gravimetric method in five pure organic solvents over the temperature range (283 to 323) K. The melting temperature and associated enthalpy of fusion ...
  • Tierney, Teresa B.; Bodnár, Katalin; Rasmuson, Åke C.; Hudson, Sarah P. (Elsevier, 2017)
    Nanoparticles of poorly water-soluble drugs were prepared in suspension via antisolvent precipitation in order to improve their dissolution behaviour. Insoluble, surface-functionalized, micron-range, clay carrier particles ...
  • O'Driscoll, Áine (University of Limerick, 2016)
    The production of energy and chemicals from renewable resources has gained significant attention as the global effort and legislated requirements to transition from fossil fuels to biofuels intensifies. The synthesis of ...
  • Surup, Gerrit Ralf; Nielsen, Henrik Kofoed; Heidelmann, Markus; Trubetskaya, Anna (Elsevier, 2019)
    This study presents the e ect of wood origin and heat treatment temperature on the CO2 reactivity, nanostructure and carbon chemistry of chars prepared at 800, 1200, and 1600° C in slow pyrolysis reactors. The structure ...
  • Trubetskaya, Anna; Brown, Avery; Tompsett, Geoffrey A.; Timko, Michael T.; Kling, Jens; Broström, Markus; Larsen Andersen, Morgens; Umeki, Kentaro (Elsevier, 2018)
    This study presents the effect of lignocellulosic compounds and monolignols on the yield, nanostructure and reactivity of soot generated at 1250  ° C in a drop tube furnace. The structure of soot was characterized by ...
  • Trubetskaya, Anna; Jensen, Peter Arendt; Jensen, Anker Degn; Glarborg, Peter; Larsen, Flemming Hofmann; Larsen Andersen, Morgens (Elsevier, 2016)
    The concentration and type of free radicals from the decay (termination stage) of pyrolysis at slow and fast heating rates and at high temperatures (above 1000°C) in biomass char have been studied. A room-temperature ...
  • Scanlon, Micheál D.; Salaj-Kośla, Urszula; Belochapkine, Serguei; MacAodha, Domhnall; Leech, Dónal; Ding, Yi; Magner, Edmond (American Chemical Society, 2012)
    The high surface areas of nanostructured electrodes can provide for significantly enhanced surface loadings of electroactive materials. The fabrication and characterization of nanoporous gold (np-Au) substrates as electrodes ...
