  • Performic acid for advanced wastewater disinfection

    The disinfection efficiency of performic acid (PFA) against various microbial contaminants has been studied in municipal secondary effluent. The study demonstrated that PFA provides rapid, efficient and safe disinfection, degrading both bacteria and viruses even at low doses. The resistance order starting from the most resistant microorganism is as follows: MS2-coliphages > DNA-coliphages ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Methods Pros and Cons: Disinfection & Coagulation

    At every stage in a wastewater treatment process is important to achieve the desired treatment results. However, primary treatment and tertiary are critical to the overall process. In the primary treatment process solids are reduced to a large extent. Without this step, subesequent treatment would be less effective. In tertiary treatment, harmful microbiological matter is rendered inactive or ...

  • Manganese-catalyzed degradation of phosphonic acids

    Abstract The non-biodegradable and chemically very stable phosphonates are used in a variety of industrial applications including cooling waters, oil production and textile industry. We show here that they are degraded in the presence of Mn(II) and oxygen. The half-life for the reaction is 9 min near neutral pH. The presence of other cations such as Ca(II) and Zn(II) considerably slows down the ...

  • Two-stage combined treatment of acid mine drainage and municipal wastewater

    This study examined the feasibility of the combined treatment of field-collected acid mine drainages (AMD, pH = 4.2 ± 0.9, iron = 112 ± 118 mg/L, sulfate = 1,846 ± 594 mg/L) and municipal wastewater (MWW, avg. chemical oxygen demand (COD) = 234–333 mg/L) using a two-stage process. The process consisted of batch mixing of the two wastes to ...

  • Wastewater Treatment & Recycle

    Fresh water is a scarce commodity; this fact is well acknowledged by one and all. People at all levels be it general public, governmental bodies, and industries understand the implications of good quality water availability in terms of quantity, cost and wastage. As a consequence, there is a growing consensus on wastewater treatment for recycle/reuse. This paper briefly describes the treatment ...

  • Characteristic of wastewater and their analysis

    Wastewater containing chromium and other heavy metals, is highly toxic effluents which require high-quality and efficient purification. Such effluents formed during electroplating, other types of chemical, electrochemical surface treatment of metal products such as chromium-plating, nickel-plating, copper-plating, zinc-plating, cadmium-plating and also during some technological ...

  • Water matrix effect on UV photodegradation of perfluorooctanoic acid

    The widespread detection of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) in the water environment has been a concern for the last several years, while effluents from wastewater treatment facilities are the major sources of these compounds. Even advanced oxidation technologies (AOTs) are not useful for mineralization of the compounds due to their very high stability. Photochemical techniques using particularly ...

  • Analysis of acid transport through multi-phase epoxy mortars for wastewater structures

    The characteristics of acid migration through epoxy mortars were examined. Diffusion coefficients of typical sewer bio-metabolised acids: sulphuric, nitric, citric and oxalic acids were determined by gravimetric sorption method and fitted to the multi-phase Jacob–Jones model. Acid permeation was characterised by hindered pore diffusion with the extent being determined by the polarity of ...

  • Influence of surface modification by sulfuric acid on coking coal's adsorption of coking wastewater

    Coking coal, the raw material of a coke plant, was applied to the adsorption of coking wastewater. In this study, coking coal was directly treated with sulfuric acid to improve its surface properties and adsorption ability. Acid treatment was carried out at various concentrations, by varying from 0.001 to 1 mol/L. The samples were characterized by ash content analysis, scanning electron ...

  • Study on biodegradability of terephthalic acid in polyester fabric alkali-peeling process wastewater

    Terephthalic acid (TA) and ethylene glycol (EG) are the main pollutants in polyester fabric alkali-peeling process wastewater (PAP-wastewater). The biodegradability of TA is crucial to the deep treatment of PAP-wastewater. Batch and continuous experiments were adopted to study the biodegradation of TA in synthetic wastewater. In anoxic batch experiments TA began to degrade gradually after EG was ...

  • Catalytic wet oxidation of ferulic acid

    Catalytic Wet Oxidation (CWO) of aqueous ferulic acid (a lignin model compound) was carried out under mild conditions (100?150?C, ~300 kPa PO2). Significant removal of ferulic acid (in terms of Total Organic Carbon (TOC)) (81% at 100?C and 95% at 150?C after 2 hr) was obtained using a CuNiCe/Al2O3 catalyst. A considerable portion of this TOC was removed during the heat-up period prior to oxygen ...

  • Wastewater-Primary Treatment

    Primary Treatment is defined as a wastewater treatment process that takes place in a rectangular or circular tank and allows those substances in wastewater that readily settle or float to be separated from the water being treated. This process achieves solids separation. The solids readily available to settle to achieve sedimentation will do so in a settling tank referred as a clarifier. On the ...
