Abstract [en]

Textile industry is witnessing the renaissance of hemp fiber, due to its sustainability. FINOLA is a breed of hemp that is grown in cold climates for grain production, including EU countries. 

However, after harvest, the residual stalks of these plants are considered low-value waste by-products. In this paper, we aim at optimizing the best methodology to extracting the short fibers from these agri-waste residue of FINOLA hemp, and to use them to produce higher-value technical textiles that can be used in many industries, such as construction and automotive, as an alternative to fossil-based fibers. Ultra-sound assisted mechanical extraction, with a multiple-step process had been developed for this residue. The obtained fibers are analyzed, and the relation between the process parameters and the fiber length is being investigated. The storage conditions will be assessed in relation with the obtained fiber length as well. This process is foreseen to increase the efficiency of this agricultural resource and contribute to circular economy and sustainability of textile sector.

Abstract [en]

This work reports the mechanical extraction process of Finola hemp fibres from the agri-waste of the food industry. FINOLA is a breed of hemp that is grown in cold climates for grain production, including EU countries. However, after harvest, the residual stalks of these plants are considered low-value waste by-products. In this paper, we aim at optimizing the methodology to extracting the short fibres from these agri-waste residue of FINOLA hemp, and to use them to produce higher-value technical textiles that can be used in many industries, such as construction and automotive, as an alternative to fossil-based fibres. Mechanical extraction, with a multiple-step process had been developed for this residue. The obtained fibres showed the potential of use as a material to produce nonwovens from 100% hemp or hemp blends with other fibres. This process is foreseen to increase the efficiency of this agricultural resource and contribute to circular economy and sustainability of textile sector.

Abstract [en]

The objectives of this work are to investigate the use of different eco-technologies as strategies for immobilization of redox enzymes on conductive carbon-based felts, to produce bio-functionalized textiles for a future use in sustainable applications while maintaining low environmental impact. Methods using cold remote plasma, electrically conductive biocompatible coating (PEDOT:PSS) and natural crosslinker for the enzyme (genipin) were tested and showed to be efficient in the intended applications. The enzymatic activity of the used glucose oxidase was maintained for multiple number of uses, and showed potential in sustainable wastewater treatment applications in bio-Fenton and bio-electro-Fenton setups.

Abstract [en]

Textiles made of blended cotton/polyester fibers have a huge share of the markets nowadays. The desirable properties of these blends made them a popular choice for both producers and consumers. However, at the end of life, this blended textile waste is often being disposed of in landfills in many parts of the world, since the fibers are hard to be fractionated and/or separated from each other and sorted according to their type, which hinders their recyclability and re-introduction to the supply chain. A significant loss of resources and big environmental impacts are only few consequences of these practices. In this article, we highlight the state of the art of fractionation and separation of cotton/polyester blended textile waste and the methods used in literature, which could be classified into mechanical, chemical and biological approaches. Additionally, we critically discuss the challenges facing these processes and their scaling-up, providing insights on how to overcome these challenges and the new initiatives in this regard, in order to contribute to the circularity and sustainability of the textile sector.

Abstract [en]

Enzyme immobilization is necessary process to improve the bioactivity and stability of the biocatalyst. In this study, glucose oxidase (GOx) enzyme was immobilized on plasma-treated fibrous carbon felt as a textile carrier to produce a heterogeneous catalyst. Genipin, as a naturally occurring crosslinker, that has less cytotoxicity than conventional crosslinkers, was used in the enzyme immobilization process. UV-Vis and FTIR spectra confirmed the crosslinking reaction between genipin and the primary amines of GOx enzyme, by forming blue-pigmented aggregates. GOx relative activity after crosslinking and immobilization on the carbon felt was maintained up to 40%, with stability in performance up to 6 cycles for the plasma treated carbon, while maintaining their bio-electro-activity as shown from cyclic voltammetry scans (CV). The obtained heterogeneous catalysts have been tested for use in sustainable wastewater treatment of Remazol Blue RR (RB) dyestuff by means of Bio-Fenton (BF) and enzymatic Bio-electro-Fenton (BEF) processes. The produced samples resulted in high color removal efficiency, up to 93% discoloration of (RB) for the first use in (BF) process in 3 h. Meanwhile, enzymatic (BEF) process resulted in up to 34% of COD removal, with simultaneous power density generation up to 0.16 ± 0.01 μW.cm−2 at a current density of around 10 ± 2 μA.cm−2 in 12 h. These results highlight the importance of genipin as a bio-based crosslinker for enzymes, and the potential use in both (BF) and (BEF) as sustainable approaches for wastewater treatment and as a step towards zero-energy degradation of organic matter.

Abstract [en]

Increasing wettability of carbon felts is an important strategy to improve their efficiency in bio‐electrochemical applications. Herein, influence of cold remote plasma (N2 + O2) treatment on surface properties of carbon felts with poly(3,4‐ethylenedioxythiophene) polystyrene sulfonate (PEDOT:PSS) coating was tested, aiming to improve immobilizing of glucose oxidase enzyme (GOx). Spectra of N 1s and O 1s confirmed the integration of carbonyl and ether as well as amide and amine groups on bare carbon fiber surface, while on coated fibers, carbonyl groups were pre‐dominant. S 2p spectra confirmed oxidation of PEDOT:PSS coating with reduction of (S−) compared to (SO3−) group. GOx immobilized on different samples showed highest activity for PEDOT:PSS coating subjected to plasma with 2% O2, maintaining up to 60% after immobilization, and 37% of its activity after six cycles for some samples. Enzymes immobilized on samples without plasma treatment lost their activity after four cycles.

Abstract [en]

Enzyme immobilization on electrically conductive supports is necessary to improve their bioactivity and stability, for use and re-use in applications depending on bio-electrochemical response, such as in bioelectrodes, biosensors, or biofuel cells. However, the immobilization methods used are still facing many challenges in terms of health hazards and high environmental impact. Thus, it is important to find balanced and eco-friendly approaches to achieve efficient immobilization with minimum harmful consequences.

Hence, within the frame of this thesis, the use of eco-technologies such as cold remote plasma, a bio-compatible conductive (PEDOT:PSS) polymer coating, and a bio-based crosslinker “genipin” which has low toxicity, to immobilize glucose oxidase (GOx) enzyme on conductive carbon fiber-based nonwoven textiles was investigated. These carbon-based textiles, regardless of their hydrophobicity, are robust materials to be used as alternative for expensive rigid metals, since they possess good electrical conductivity and good resistance to corrosion in different media.

The results obtained showed that cold remote plasma treatment with nitrogen and oxygen gas mixture was efficient in functionalizing the surface of carbon felts and PEDOT:PSS coated felts. This increased carbon fiber surface energies, and facilitated the immobilization of GOx by physical adsorption with maintained bioactivity and improved reusability. Furthermore, immobilization of GOx using genipin as a crosslinking agent improved remarkably the stability of performance of bio-functionalized carbon felts. This crosslinker showed to be able to directly crosslink the enzymes without a matrix or hydrogel. Finally, the obtained bio-functionalized carbon textiles were primarily evaluated for use in sustainable applications for wastewater treatment such as Bio-Fenton (BF) and enzymatic Bio-Electro-Fenton (BEF). The results showed that bioactivity and bio-electro-activity of immobilized GOx was promising in color removal of Remazol Blue RR reactive dye and its partial degradation from solution in both treatments, which proved the success of the chosen immobilization methods in producing bioactive textiles that can be used as electrodes for power generation and pollution control.

Abstract [fr]

L'immobilisation d'enzymes sur des supports conducteurs d’électricité est nécessaire afin d’améliorer leur bioactivité et leur stabilité, pour une utilisation et une réutilisation dans des applications dépendant de la réponse bio-électrochimique, telles que des bioélectrodes, des biocapteurs ou des piles à biocarburant. Cependant, les méthodes d'immobilisation utilisées rencontrent encore de nombreux défis en termes de risques pour la santé et d'impact environnemental. Il est donc important de trouver des approches équilibrées et respectueuses de l’environnement pour parvenir à une immobilisation efficace avec un minimum de conséquences néfastes.

Ainsi, dans le cadre de cette thèse, l’utilisation d’écotechnologies telles que le plasma froid, le dépôt de polymère conducteur biocompatible (PEDOT: PSS) et d’un agent de réticulation biologiquement basé sur la génipine, peu toxique, permettant l'immobilisation de glucose oxydase (GOx) sur des textiles nontissés à base de fibres de carbone a été étudiée. Ces textiles à base de carbone, quelle que soit leur hydrophobicité, sont des matériaux robustes à utiliser comme alternative aux métaux rigides onéreux, car ils possèdent une bonne conductivité électrique et une bonne résistance à la corrosion dans différents milieux.

Les résultats obtenus ont montré que le traitement plasma froid avec un mélange gazeux d'azote et d'oxygène était efficace pour fonctionnaliser la surface des nontissés de carbone vierge et ceuxrevêtus de PEDOT: PSS. Une augmentation des énergies de surface des fibres de carbone facilite l’immobilisation de GOx par adsorption physique avec une bioactivité maintenue et une meilleure capacité de réutilisation. En outre, l’immobilisation de GOx au moyen de génipine en tant qu’agent de réticulation améliore de façon remarquable la stabilité des performances des feutres de carbone bio-fonctionnalisés. Cet agent de réticulation s'est révélé capable de réticuler directement les enzymes sans matrice ni hydrogel. Enfin, les textiles de carbone bio-fonctionnalisés obtenus ont été principalement évalués pour une utilisation dans des applications durables pour le traitement des eaux usées telles que la Bio-Fenton (BF) et la Bio-Electro-Fenton enzymatique (BEF). Les résultats ont montré que la bioactivité et la bio-activité électrique du GOx immobilisé étaient prometteuses pour l’élimination de la couleur du colorant réactif Remazol Blue RR et sa dégradation partielle à partir de la solution dans les deux traitements, ce qui a prouvé l’efficacité des méthodes d’immobilisation choisies pour la production de textiles bioactifs. Ces textiles peuvent être utilisés comme électrodes pour la production d'énergie et la dépollution.

Abstract [sv]

Enzym immobilisering på elektriskt ledande stöd är nödvändig för att förbättra sina bioaktivitet och stabilitet, till användning och återanvändning i applikationer som är beroende på bioelektrokemiskt respons t.ex. bioelektroder, biosensorer. Däremot den använt immobiliseringsmetoderna fortfarande står inför många utmaningar gäller hälsorisker och miljöpåverk. Det är således viktigt att hitta balanserad och miljövänlig metoder för att uppnå effektiv immobilisering med minimala skadliga konsekvenser.

Därmed den här doktorsavhandling undersöker miljövänlig kall fjärrplasma teknik, en biokompatibel polymerbeläggning (PEDOT: PSS) och ett bio-baserat låg toxicitet tvärbindningsmedel "genipin" för att immobilisera glukosoxidas (GOx) enzym på ledande kolfiberbaserade nonwoven textiler undersöktes. Dessa kolbaserade textilier, oavsett hydrofobicitet, är robusta material och kan användas som alternativ till dyra styva metaller, eftersom de har bra elektrisk ledningsförmåga och bra korrosionsbeständighet i olika medier.

Resultaten visade att kyla avlägsen plasmabehandling med kväve och syreblandning var effektiv vid funktionaliseringen av ytan av kolfilte och PEDOT: PSS-belagd filten. Detta ökade kolfiber ytanergierna och underlättade immobiliseringen av GOx genom fysisk adsorption med förbättrad bioaktivitet och återanvändning. Vidare immobilisering av GOx med genipin tvärbindare förbättrade stabiliteten i prestandan hos biofunktionella kolfilt på ett märkbart sätt. Denna tvärbindare befanns vara i stånd att direkt tvärbinda enzymerna utan en matris eller hydrogel.Äntligen de biofunktionaliserade koltextilierna var primärt använt i hållbara tillämpningar för avloppsrening som Bio-Fenton (BF) och enzymatisk Bio-Electro-Fenton (BEF). Resultaten visade att bioaktivitet och bioelektroaktivitet hos immobiliserad GOx lovade färgavlägsnande av Remazol Blue RR-reaktivt färgämne och dess partiella nedbrytning från lösning i båda behandlingarna, vilket visade framgången hos de valda immobiliseringsmetoderna vid framställning av bioaktiva textiler vilka kan användas som elektroder för elproduktion och föroreningsbekämpning.

Abstract [zh]

生物酶可改善导电材料的生物活性及稳定性,根据其生物电化学反应,经生物酶改性后的导电材料可用于生物电极、生物传感器或生物燃料电池等领域,因此将生物酶固定在导电材料上意义重大。但目前所采用的固定方法对人类生命健康和环境均产生不良影响,仍面临着众多挑战。寻找生态友好的生物酶固定技术以提 高固定效率、降低改性所带来的危害极为重要。因此,本课题主要采用生态友好型技术如低温等离子体远程处理技术(CRP)、生物相容性聚合物聚 (3,4-亚乙基二氧噻吩 ):聚 (苯乙烯磺酸 )(PEDOT:PSS)涂层技术以及利用毒性较低的 “京尼平 ”作为生物基交联剂将葡萄糖氧化酶 (GOx)固定在导电碳纤维基非织造布上 。 如果不考虑碳基纺织品的疏水性的话,该类材料较为坚固,具有良好的导电性,且对各种介质具有较好的耐腐蚀性,因此可用于替代昂贵的刚性金属材料。结果表明,通过氮气和氧气混合气氛下的低温等离子体远程处理技术可有效地将碳毡和PEDOT:PSS涂层毡的表面进行功能化改性。该表面改性可提高碳纤维的表面能,促进葡萄糖氧化酶 (GOx)在碳纤维上的物理吸附性能,并保持葡萄糖氧化酶 (GOx)的生物活性和重复使用性能 。 此外 利用 “京尼平 ”作为葡萄糖氧化酶 (GOx)和碳纤维间的交联剂可明显提高碳毡生物功能性的稳定性。该交联剂可直接用于酶交联,无需使用基质或水凝胶。最后,将制备的生物功能性碳纺织品用于废水处理如 Bio-Fenton (BF)、酶催化 Bio-Electro-Fenton (BEF)等可持续应用中。葡萄糖氧化酶的生物活性和 电生物活性有助于活性染料雷马素蓝 RR溶液的脱色和部分染料的降解,表明通过上述方法制备的具有生物活性的纺织品可用于发电和污染控制等领域。

Abstract [en]

Despite their chemical inertness and poor hydrophobicity, carbon-based materials are widely used in electrochemical applications due to their robustness, good electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance. The purpose of the work carried was to increase the wettability of nonwoven carbon fiber felts for improved efficiency in bio/electrochemical applications. Virgin Carbon Felt (VCF) was first treated with cold remote plasma (CRP) using a mixture of nitrogen and oxygen (1 or 2 %) as plasma gas.  Bio-functionalization of the carbon felts with glucose oxidase (GOx) enzyme was then carried using physical adsorption method. FTIR and XPS analysis showed an integration of new oxygenated functional groups (C-O and C=O) as well as amines and amides on the surface of VCF treated by the CRP treatment, which improved the wettability of the samples. Capillary uptake increased from around 0 % (for VCF) to nearly 750 % with 2 % oxygen in plasma gas. GOx enzyme showed higher activity after immobilization at pH 5.5 on the CRP treated samples, maintaining up to 50 % of its initial enzymatic activity after six cycles while with the VCF, no enzymatic activity was observed after the fourth cycle. These obtained felts can be used as electrodes in sustainable bioprocesses.

Abstract [en]

In this paper, an overview of the bio-Fenton and bio-electro-Fenton processes for sustainable wastewater treatment is provided. These two methods have been used in recent years to treat many kinds of persistent pollutants while maintaining the sustainability in materials and power consumption compared to conventional methods, through efficient eco-designed systems. The different kinds of electrodes used for the bio-electro-Fenton are reviewed, along with the influencing factors affecting the efficiency of these methods, and the different designs used to construct the reactors. Moreover, the various organic pollutants from industrial sources, like effluents from textile and pesticides facilities, treated using these processes are also reported. However, the main challenge facing these technologies is to improve their performance, stability and lifetime to achieve more sustainable and cost-effective wastewater treatment on pilot and large scales. Hence, future perspectives and trends are discussed to overcome the drawbacks of these methods.
