  • Studies on Microbial Heavy Metal Retention from Uranium Mine Drainage Water with Special Emphasis on Rare Earth Elements

    Microbial heavy metal retention was studied using seepage water sampled from a former uranium mining site in Eastern Thuringia, Germany. The seepage water has a low pH and contains high concentrations of metals, including uranium, rare earth elements (REE), and other heavy metals. Microbial influence on sorption and/or active uptake of heavy metals was studied using REE patterns. Incubation of ...

  • Winery and distillery wastewater treatment by constructed wetland with shorter retention time

    The rationale for using constructed wetlands for treating wastewater is that wetlands are naturally among the most biological active ecosystem on earth. The aim of the study was to determine the impact of shorter retention time on the performance of constructed wetland in terms of Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and other elements removal. The application of wastewater with retention time of seven ...

  • Rail and intermodal site inspection

    The best way to introduce you to the benefits of Presto’s GEOWEB cellular confinement system would be to take you on a personally guided tour of soil stabilization sites. Since that isn’t practical, we’ve put together this self-guided photographic tour.  As you “walk” around, you’ll see the GEOWEB system used in a variety of applications including track sub-ballast stabilization, earth retention ...

  • Schlitt services seawall, Vero Beach, Florida

    One example is when prime real estate, which is scarce in south Florida, forces developers to reclaim low-lying land for commercial use. Louis Schlitt, a Vero Beach area real estate developer, approached us with such a land reclamation problem. The property slated for commercial development butted up against a saltwater estuary. In addition to the existence of agency-protected species of ...

  • Geoweb and geoblock solutions for trails and greenways

    As communities develop and expand greenway and trails into environmentally-sensitive areas, finding cost-effective ways to protect the surface and adjacent land with low impact solutions is crucial. The challenge is to maximize permeability and/or green space while maintaining a trail environment that is stable, aesthetically-pleasing, relatively low maintenance, and environmentally-sound. The ...

  • Basic Principles of Microfiltration

    Microfiltration can be defined as the separation of particles of one size from particles of another size in the range of approximately 0.01 µm through 20 µm. The fluid may be either a liquid or a gas. Microfiltration media are available in a wide variety of materials and methods of manufacture. They can be rated either 'absolute' or 'nominal' depending upon the percentage of capture of particles ...

  • Impacts of harvest residue management on soil Carbon stocks in a plantation forest

    The impacts of plantation forest management on soil C stocks in New Zealand need to be better understood for the purposes of C accounting under the Kyoto Protocol. We investigated the impacts of three harvest residue management treatments on C and N stocks in a scoriaceous forest soil: whole-tree harvesting plus forest floor removal, whole-tree harvesting, and stem-only harvesting. Volumetric ...

  • Clarification of rough beer in brewery industry case study

    Standard filtration uses diatomaceous earth (Kieselguhr) into filter-press and consists in the retention of solid particles (yeast cells, macrocolloids, suspended matter) and solutes responsible for haze. After use the disposal of Kieselguhr (after filtration) are a major difficulty due to their polluting effect. From the health perspective, the used diatomaceous earth is classified as ...

  • Texas composter grows with biosolids

    New Earth Compost and Soils — with facilities in San Antonio and Conroe, Texas — was born 15 years ago out of a local meat packing plant’s long-standing need to dispose of manure from its operation (see “Composting Integrated Into Family Business,” October 2009). It soon became evident that scores of other businesses in and around the San Antonio area, where the ...
