Biofixation of carbon dioxide from coal station flue gas using Spirulina sp. LEB 18 and Scenedesmus obliquus LEB 22

The atmospheric concentration of CO2, the main greenhouse gas (GHG), has increased rapidly since the beginning of the industrial age. Anthropogenic emissions from coal-fired power plants are responsible for approximately 7% (w/w) of global CO2 emissions. Microalgae CO2biofixation is a technology that reduces GHGs based on the use of solar energy through photosynthesis to capture and use the CO2 that is produced by...

Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of Staphylococcus aureus isolates recovered from bovine milk in central highlands of Ethiopia

Antimicrobial resistance is becoming an extremely serious global problem. The goal of this study was to determine the prevalence and phenotypic and genotypic characteristics of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from milk and milk product samples in Ethiopia and also to determine the presence of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). A total of 577 milk and milk product samples were collected from central...
