  • Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration Membrane Filtration Systems: Common Problems and How to Fix Them

    Reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF) are membrane filtration technologies that are designed to remove solute ions and molecules from a pretreated liquid stream. Well-designed RO/NF units are compact and demand relatively little maintenance, making them an attractive alternative to conventional treatment trains. Even despite the merits of today’s efficient RO/NF technologies, it pays ...

  • Crumbling Concrete Water Networks Linked to Common Water Treatment Additive

    Concrete distribution and sewer networks are being corroded at an alarming rate partly because of a commonly used additive in the domestic drinking water and wastewater treatment process according to published reports in the journal Science. In countries throughout the world from industrialized nations like Australia and the USA to developing nations like Colombia, Ghana and the Philippines, the ...

  • Acid mine drainage treatment

    Acid mine/rock drainage is a rampant problem in the world today. The above photo depicts acid drainage at an abandoned mine in the Yukon Territory of northwest Canada. This mine shares a similar history to thousands of other mines throughout the world. It was in operation for six short years in the 1950’s, producing gold ore. Its profitability eventually failed and it was abandoned. In the ...

  • Characterisation of humic acid maturation by fluorescence spectroscopy and thermal analysis during composting of olive mill waste

    Humic acids isolated from different stages of olive mill waste composting were investigated by Elemental analysis, Fluorescence spectroscopy and by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). The Elemental composition of these humic acids indicates an increase in aromatic structures during the composting. Indeed, the fluorescence results showed an increase in condensed aromatic ring systems. ...

  • Hazardous waste and not, Baioni-Dicatech system

    The identification, characterization and restoration of contaminated areas now represent a big environmental issue, both at European and national level. In the major industrialized countries the issue of contaminated land has come out in all its gravity in the late seventies when, against a widespread awakening of environmental consciousness, important pollutions events emerged. Consequently, in ...

  • Waste Water Batch Treatment System

    Industrial Wastewater Treatment Batch Treatment Systems (BTS) are intended for lower daily volumes of wastewater typically less than 10,000 gallons per day and designed to “batch” treat wastewater from start to finish at one time. In a batch treatment system, a volume of wastewater is gathered, treated by chemical / physical / biological means, and discharged. Storage ...

  • Alkaline fermentation of waste activated sludge stimulated by saponin: volatile fatty acid production, mechanisms and pilot-scale application

    Volatile fatty acid (VFA) production stimulated by saponin (SP), an environmentally friendly bio-surfactant, was investigated during sludge alkaline fermentation in laboratory studies and pilot applications. The combined use of SP and pH 9 condition significantly enhanced VFA production to approximately 425 mg COD/g VSS, which was 4.7-fold of raw sludge and 1.5-fold of sole pH 10 adjustment ...

  • Activated bauxite waste as an adsorbent for removal of Acid Blue 92 from aqueous solutions

    Bauxite waste, known as red mud, is produced in some industrial processes, such as aluminum production process. In this process, the waste material is produced from leached bauxite as a by product. In this research, the removal of Acid Blue 92 (AB92) dye was investigated from aqueous solution onto the activated bauxite waste (red mud) in a batch equilibration system. Besides, the influences of ...

  • Komax teflon lined mixer simplifies acid injection for power plant

    A major source of waste water in many power plants is the waste stream that results from ion exchange used for demineralizing the boiler feed water. The alkaline regeneration waste stream produced by the ion exchange process requires the addition of an acid to this stream before discharge from the plant. Regulatory authorities typically require the effluent to have a near neutral pH before ...

  • Hydrochemical changes in a reservoir that receives water contaminated by acid mine drainage

    The aim was to characterize hydrochemical changes that take place in the Sancho reservoir, which receives waters contaminated by acid mine drainage (AMD) from the Meca River (Iberian Pyrite Belt, SW Spain). The sampling procedure comprised bimonthly campaigns carried out between October 2011 and May 2012, in the entrance of the reservoir and in the input river waters. In addition to in situ ...

  • Water mixing in waste lagoons

    Man-made lagoons have been used worldwide for the treatment of domestic and industrial wastewater, it seems, forever. All waste lagoons were first designed and thoughtfully planned considering their locations, soil makeup, and waste reduction processes prior to being implemented. The biological process of organic waste reduction is always a consideration of waste lagoon designs. There are three ...

  • Management of Hazardous Wastes

    ' Management of hazardous waste is a growing concern in many countries. The long-term impacts and costs of improper disposal can be very high and the emphasis must be on prevention. A comprehensive management system should include (i) policies, institutions and effective regulations and (ii) adequate and acceptable disposal facilities (either public or private). This note outlines the key ...

  • The East-Sullivan Mine Site: Merging Prevention and Treatment of Acid Mine Drainage - update

    ABSTRACTThe East Sullivan mine was closed in 1966, leaving 15 Mt of acid-generating tailings free to contaminate theenvironment. An experimental wood waste cover was implemented in the early 80's in order to prevent sulphideoxidation. Contaminant production and dispersion were investigated in the 90's to validate that concept and guide lateractions. Ligneous wastes stop oxygen, and also favour ...

  • Toxins Found in E-Waste

    One of the worst effects of a skyrocketing, global e-waste crisis is the risk of toxic contamination for the environment and communities. In fact, delving into the many chemical and heavy metal materials that make up most electronic devices, it seems that toxins and electronics go hand in hand. Though many manufacturers of electronic devices are finding innovative ways to work around toxins found ...

  • Minicipal Waste Incinerator Case History

    Low temperature plant operation had resulted in severe baghouse corrosion and constant dust blockages throughout the system. It was decided to raise the operational temperature of the incinerator and change the acid gas scrubbing agent from lime to sodium bicarbonate. However, the existing felt filter media could not cope with the change in acid gas scrubbing agent and “blinded” very rapidly ...
