  • Bio-fuels- Anaerobic digestion

    Anaerobic digestion is a series of processes in which micro organisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen. It is widely used to treat wastewater sludges and organic (agricultural) wastes.  As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digestion is a renewable energy source because the ...

  • Biodegradability of Alternative Oxygenates as a Sole Carbon Source or in the Presence of BTEX

    ABSTRACTThe biodegradability of alkylate compounds in serum bottles was investigated as a sole carbon source or in the presence BTEX. The biomass was acclimated with 2,3-dimethyl pentane (2,3- DMP), 2,4-dimethyl pentane (2,4-DMP) and 2,2,4-trimethyl pentane (2,2,4-TMP) in porous potreactors. The alkylates (2,3-DMP, 2,4-DMP, and 2,2,4-TMP) were completely biodegraded in all the sets of ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Fuels in Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    Common treatment technologies for fuels in soil, sediment, and sludge include biodegradation, incineration, SVE, and low temperature thermal desorption. Incineration is typically used when chlorinated SVOCs are also present with fuel, and not specified for fuel-only contaminated soil, sediment, or sludge. All types of biodegradation, both in situ or ex situ, can be used to remediate soils: ...

  • Treatment of Perchlorate and 1,1,1-Trichloroethane in Groundwater using Edible Oil Substrate (EOS®)

    ABSTRACT: Laboratory studies and a pilot-scale field test are being conducted to evaluate the use of edible oil emulsions for biodegradation of perchlorate and 1,1,1-trichloroethane (1,1,1-TCA) in groundwater at a site in Maryland. The patented Edible Oil Substrate (EOS®) process is a cost-effective approach for stimulating in situ anaerobic biodegradation with little or no operation and ...

  • A Citizen`s Guide to Natural Attenuation

    What is natural attenuation?Natural attenuation makes use of natural processes to contain the spread of contamination from chemical spills and reduce the concentration and amount of pollutants at contaminated sites. Natural attenuation—also referred to as intrinsic remediation, bioattenuation, or intrinsic bioremediation—is an in situ treatment method. This means that environmental contaminants ...

  • Treating organic waste with Cambi® THP

    This paper describes how the Cambi Thermal Hydrolysis Process (THP) treats biodegradable organic waste and converts it to renewable energy and pathogen-free and bio-fertilizer. The interest for the process is expected to increase due to new environmental legislation as well as increasing demand for renewable energy. The implementation of the European Landfill Directive 1999/31EC and the Animal-by ...

  • Municipal solid waste - waste to energy conversion in India: an overview

    Municipal solid waste (MSW) is generated in enormous quantities, in India, causing environmental problems. It is collected primarily by sweeping in India and dumped on the outskirts of urban areas, which pollute the environment. Such MSWs also release methane and carbon dioxide, which are important greenhouse gases. MSW comprises biodegradable material. The MSW disposal methods in India mainly ...

  • The advantages and benefits of aerobic cometabolism

    Aerobic metabolism yields the energy-transferring molecule TPA at a much higher rate than anaerobic metabolism. The higher energy yield produces a greater viable population. The oxygenase enzymes involved in the cometabolism of chlorinated solvents are not induced by the presence of contaminants, so a high microbial population has a proportionately high yield of oxygenase enzymes. Aerobic ...

  • Closing the Loop

    Biodegradable waste of all types produces methane as it decomposes. Methane as a climate change suspect is rated 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide. The bad news is that methane comes from most of our waste in its many shapes and forms, whether sewage, garbage, agriculture or food process waste.  The good news is that most of the waste can be used to create biogas (50-75%) methane that ...


  • Bioventing

    Introduction Bioventing is a promising new technology that stimulates the natural in situ biodegradation of any aerobically degradable compounds in soil by providing oxygen to existing soil microorganisms. In contrast to soil vapor vacuum extraction, bioventing uses low air flow rates to provide only enough oxygen to sustain microbial activity. Oxygen is most commonly supplied through direct air ...
