  • A colorimetric microwell method for determining bromide concentrations

    Bromide is commonly used as a tracer in studies of water and chemical transport in soil and rock because it is relatively nonreactive with soil and rock constituents and because of its low environmental background concentrations. Based on a largely ignored modification of an American Public Health Association standard colorimetric method for determining Br– using phenol red and chloramine-T(CT), ...

  • Case study - Procurement and installation of a Biogas desulphurization unit at the Chania WWTP

    A proposal based on Bioconservacion’s technology was selected as the winning bid in the public tender released in 2015, covering the design, procurement and construction of a biogas desulfurizing unit to be installed in the waste water treatment plant in Chania, Greece. With a population over 100,000, Chania is the second largest municipality in the Greek island of Crete. Its waste water ...

  • Raw material cycle: from chip to briquette to product - Case Study

    Thanks to their briquetting system from RUF Frischhut can redeploy production scrap and melt it again Ludwig Frischhut GmbH and Co. KG have closed the circle on their raw material cycle by utilising a briquetting press from RUF: cast chips produced during the machining of parts for water supply and sewage disposal are pressed to solid briquettes and then melted in the in-house foundry and ...

  • Sludge Drying Overview - Treatment Methods and Applications

    Sludge is a residual, semi-solid by-product left from industrial or refining processes. It is a separated solid suspended in a liquid, typically containing major quantities of interstitial water between its solid particles.  This material can be dried to cut its volume and reduce most of the moisture content of the biosolids present in the sludge. ...

  • Biosolids- Considering the Types, Applications and Biosolids Drying Methods

    While some water treatment plants are meant to simply make the sludge safe enough to dispose of, most facilities continue to treat the sludge so that the material can be put to good use in their communities. Once sludge is treated and processed to meet EPA safety standards for productive use, the resulting nutrient-rich organic material is termed as biosolids. ...

  • The mtt [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide] assay is a fast and reliable method for colorimetric determination of fungal cell densities

    The entomopathogenic fungus Neozygites parvispora (Entomophthorales: Zygomycetes) grows in vitro as irregularly rod-shaped hyphal bodies in a complex medium. In order to simplify the medium composition and determine growth-promoting compounds for the cultivation of this fungus, we were looking for a rapid and quantitative method to estimate the number of living ...

  • Assessment of Interpolation Methods For EFAS

    The observed meteorological inputs for the European Flood Alert System (EFAS) have been analysed. Observed sources are: 1) Grid and Station data collected from the MARS-STAT data base, 2) high resolution rainfall and mean temperature data covering Germany and upper Danube (HR). Several interpolation methods have been calibrated and cross validated. The comparisons of the different interpolated ...


  • Solar drying of sewage sludge - An old method with modern technology using Wendewolf®

    Any Sewage Water Work throughout the world will produce sludge, a form of biomass growing in the basins. This biomass has to be evacuated and is, generally speaking difficult to handle! When liquid it has a dry matter of 3 to 4 %, or only 30 to 40 kg per ton of sludge, when mechanically dehydrated to 20 - 25 % most of it is still water, as an average  750 to 800 kg per ton of filter cake. ...

  • Environmental assessment of different dewatering and drying methods on the basis of life cycle assessment

    Sewage sludge is an inevitable product of wastewater treatment in municipal wastewater plants and its amount has increased dramatically due to the growing number of sewage systems users. This sludge needs to be adequately treated in order to decrease its hazardous properties and any negative influence on the environment. In this paper, gate to gate analysis, on the basis of life cycle assessment ...

  • Highly sensitive colorimetric determination of malathion using gold nanoparticles

    A highly sensitive method is presented for the colorimetric determination of malathion using gold nanoparticles (AuNPs). In this approach, the synthesized AuNPs solution was stabilized by the citrate anions as their repulsion protected the AuNPs from aggregation. The synthesized AuNPs were characterized morphologically by using transmission electron microscopy technique. Malathion caps the ...

  • Accepted Inspection Methods of Process Sewers.

    During the process of refining there is discharge of hazardous waste, this coupled with aging pipeline infrastructure creates a potential where waste can leak into the environment posing catastrophic threats to life. Federal agencies such as the EPA are beginning to penalize refineries that do not take necessary measures of disposing their waste. These refineries are subject to ...

  • AuNP‐based colorimetric aptasensor for rapid detection of six organophosphorus pesticides

    Fast immunoassay‐based screening methods are unavailable for most of small‐molecule pesticides due to lack of immunogenicity and the difficulty in obtaining antibodies by animal immunization. Aptamers are single‐stranded DNAs selected through an in vitro process, which can bind to any target including non‐immunogenic small molecules with high affinity and specificity. Though various ...

  • The Molding Methods of Desulfurization Gypsum Ball Press Machine

    At present, according to the molding methods, desulfurized gypsum ball press machine can be divided into two types, which will be explained by Kefan Machinery in the following: (1) Desulfurization gypsum ball press machine presses the materials relying on the cohesion of the particles, such as disk pelleting ...

  • Quantification of sewer leakage by a continuous tracer method

    Water authorities interested in the evaluation of the structural state of a sewer must quantify leakage to plan strategic intervention. However, the quantification of the exfiltration and the localisation of structural damage are challenging tasks that usually require expensive and time-consuming inspections. Herein, we report one of the first applications of the QUEST-C method to quantify the ...

  • An experimental method to estimate the temperature of individual nanowires

    In this paper, the authors present an effective experimental method to estimate the temperature of individual metal oxide nanowires that can be used to quantify the heating produced in conductometric or other operating conditions. The here-proposed method is based on the analysis of the recovery time of the nanowire's resistance after exposure to a gas pulse (0.5 ppm of NO2 in dry air). It is ...

  • Glyphosate (roundup) and AMPA analysis in crops method abstracts

    The recently practiced method1 for analysis of Glyphosate and AMPA in crops suffers from an expensive, time consuming cleanup procedure that has less than ideal recoveries. Although the analysis (after clean up) by ion-exchange chromatography with post-column derivatization is rugged and sensitive, a new method was sought to improve the sample preparation. This resulted in AOAC Method 2000.522 ...

  • Using On-Site Biological Methods to Clean Up Soil

    Decontamination companies and researchers in France are working to restore polluted soil using treatments that range from biological methods to soil washing and incineration. The problem of polluted soil was dramatically illustrated prior to construction of the Stade de France soccer stadium built for the 1998 World Cup. The location of the site, on industrial wasteland just north of Paris, ...

  • Comparison of four methods to assess biofilm development

    Two nondestructive methods of biofilm quantification (optical density via a flatbed scanner and biofilm thickness) have been evaluated and compared to two destructive methods (Crystal Violet staining after biofilm disintegration and dry weight). The methods were tested on biofilms that developed on a modified rotating biological contactor (RBC) that was inoculated with urban wastewater and fed ...
