Evaluation of rumen protected rapeseed expeller (NovaPro) as an alternative to soya bean meal in dairy cow diets (2021)
Journal Article
Garnsworthy, P. C., Saunders, N., Goodman, J. R., & Marsden, M. (2021). Evaluation of rumen protected rapeseed expeller (NovaPro) as an alternative to soya bean meal in dairy cow diets. Animal Feed Science and Technology, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.anifeedsci.2021.114816

There are environmental, social and economic pressures to reduce the use of soya bean meal in ruminant diets by using alternative protein sources, such as those derived from rapeseed. A new protected form of rapeseed (NovaPro) has been developed to p...

Inclusion of Wheat Dried Distillers’ Grains with Solubles from Bioethanol Plants in Diets for Dairy Cows (2021)
Journal Article
Garnsworthy, P. C., Marsden, M., Goodman, J. R., & Saunders, N. (2021). Inclusion of Wheat Dried Distillers’ Grains with Solubles from Bioethanol Plants in Diets for Dairy Cows. Animals, 11(1), https://doi.org/10.3390/ani11010070

Dried distillers’ grains with solubles (DDGS) from bioethanol production can replace soya in diets for dairy cows, but optimum inclusion level of European wheat-DDGS (wDDGS) is unknown. Two batches of wDDGS from different UK bioethanol plants were fe... Read More about Inclusion of Wheat Dried Distillers’ Grains with Solubles from Bioethanol Plants in Diets for Dairy Cows.

Cordycepin, a metabolite of Cordyceps militaris, reduces immune-related gene expression in insects (2020)
Journal Article
Woolley, V. C., Teakle, G. R., Prince, G., de Moor, C. H., & Chandler, D. (2020). Cordycepin, a metabolite of Cordyceps militaris, reduces immune-related gene expression in insects. Journal of Invertebrate Pathology, 177, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jip.2020.107480

Hypocrealean entomopathogenic fungi (EPF) (Sordariomycetes, Ascomycota) are natural regulators of insect populations in terrestrial environments. Their obligately-killing life-cycle means that there is likely to be strong selection pressure for trait...

Peasant Perspectives on the Medieval Landscape: A study of three communities (2020)
Book
Kilby, S. (2020). Peasant Perspectives on the Medieval Landscape: A study of three communities. University of Hertfordshire Press

This compelling new study forms part of a new wave of scholarship on the medieval rural environment in which the focus moves beyond purely socio-economic concerns to incorporate the lived experience of peasants. For too long, the principal intellectu... Read More about Peasant Perspectives on the Medieval Landscape: A study of three communities.

Bioleaching for resource recovery from low-grade wastes like fly and bottom ashes from municipal incinerators: A SWOT analysis (2020)
Journal Article
Gomes, H. I., Funari, V., & Ferrari, R. (2020). Bioleaching for resource recovery from low-grade wastes like fly and bottom ashes from municipal incinerators: A SWOT analysis. Science of the Total Environment, 715, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2020.136945

Bioleaching (or microbial leaching) is a biohydrometallurgical technology that can be applied for metal recovery from anthropogenic waste streams. In particular, fly ashes and bottom ashes of municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) can be used as a...

CFD multiphase modelling of the acetone condensation and evaporation process in a horizontal circular tube (2019)
Journal Article
Mohammed, H. I., Giddings, D., Walker, G. S., & Power, H. (2019). CFD multiphase modelling of the acetone condensation and evaporation process in a horizontal circular tube. International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, 1159-1170. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijheatmasstransfer.2019.02.062

With increasing demands on energy efficiency, the use of low grade waste heat using vapour absorption refrigeration systems (VARS) are receiving renewed interest. One idea is to use the combination of acetone and zinc bromide as the salt solution, wh...
