• A C4-oxidizing lytic polysaccharide monooxygenase cleaving both cellulose and cello-oligosaccharides 

      Isaksen, Trine; Westereng, Bjørge; Aachmann, Finn Lillelund; Agger, Jane; Kracher, Daniel; Kittl, Roman; Ludwig, R.; Haltrich, Dietmar; Eijsink, Vincent; Horn, Svein Jarle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Lignocellulosic biomass is a renewable resource that significantly can substitute fossil resources for the production of fuels, chemicals, and materials. Efficient saccharification of this biomass to fermentable sugars ...
    • Bioenergy from brown seaweeds 

      Horn, Svein Jarle (Dr. ingeniøravhandling, 0809-103X; 2000:105, Doctoral thesis, 2000)
      Brown seaweeds lack lignin and have a low cellulose content. Thus, seaweeds should be an easier material for biological degradation than land plants. However, seaweeds have a complex composition, and complete degradation ...
    • Effects of post anaerobic digestion thermal hydrolysis on dewaterability and moisture distribution in digestates 

      Svennevik, Oda K; Solheim, Odd Egil; Beck, Greeley; Sørland, Geir; Jonassen, Kjell Rune; Rus, Ester; Westereng, Bjørge; Horn, Svein Jarle; Higgins, Matthew J; Nilsen, Pål Jahre (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Organic waste fractions such as sewage sludge, food waste and manure can be stabilized by anaerobic digestion (AD) to produce renewable energy in the form of biogas. Following AD, the digested solid fraction (digestate) ...
    • Production, characterization, and application of an alginate lyase, AMOR_PL7A, from hot vents in the Arctic mid-ocean ridge 

      Vuoristo, Kiira; Fredriksen, Lasse; Oftebro, Maren; Arntzen, Magnus Øverlie; Aarstad, Olav Andreas; Stokke, Runar; Steen, Ida Helene; Hansen, Line Degn; Schüller, Reidar Barfod; Aachmann, Finn Lillelund; Horn, Svein Jarle; Eijsink, Vincent (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Enzymatic depolymerization of seaweed polysaccharides is gaining interest for the production of functional oligosaccharides and fermentable sugars. We describe a thermostable alginate lyase belonging to Polysaccharide Lyase ...
