Endoglucanase Activity of Novel Aspergillus sydowii Isolate WIU-01 and Application for Hydrophyte Degradation


>Zhenbin Wu et al. View all

Solid Waste Management

Many eutrophic lakes contain rapidly growing hydrophytes. Overgrown biomass is usually me-chanically harvested and thrown away, leading to resource waste and secondary environmental pollution. Microbial degradation is an economically and environmentally friendly approach for managing hydrophytic...
