  • Manganese in Madison’s Drinking Water

    Public concern over events of manganese-discolored drinking water and the potential for adverse health effects from exposure to excess manganese reached a high level in 2005. In response, Public Health Madison Dane County, together with the Madison Water Utility, conceived and implemented a public health/water utility strategy to quantify the extent of the manganese problem, determine the ...

  • Welding Fumes and the effects of Manganese

    The potential risks of welding operations include the potential to breathe in metal fumes and toxic gases. Fume particles are formed from the vaporisation of molten metal that occurs during the process. These particles are very fine in size and may join together to form larger particles.. The biggest risk is exposure to the manganese contained in fumes that are given off during welding. ...

  • Filtration and manganese removal

    Manganese removal through a filter bed is generally carried out and accepted by practitioners and researchers as occurring through catalytic oxidation at the surface of MnO2 coated media, although manganese passage through a coated media filter has been little investigated. To better understand the kinetics of Mn removal through a naturally coated filter, a pilot plant consisting of four filter ...

  • Manganese waste water treatment by fungi derived from manganese slag

    The aim of this study was to isolate a mould from the surface of manganese slag which had strong resistance and high adsorption of Mn2 + , and to determine the effects of initial Mn2 +  concentration, incubation temperature, rotation speed and inoculation amount on adsorption of Mn2 +  from manganese waste water solution. The result showed that a mould (A5) which was isolated from manganese slag ...

  • 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 ...

  • Biokinetics of Thiobacillus thiooxidans for manganese bioleaching

    The waste tailing of metals generated during mining processes is degrading the environment by increasing the soil toxicity, leading to disturbances in the ecosystem. This study was initiated to determine the biokinetics of Thiobacillus thiooxidans for manganese bioleaching in the presence of excess sulphur. In batch studies, the effect of manganese concentration on the leaching efficiency of T. ...

  • Identification of the bacterial population in manganese removal filters

    The aim of this study was to identify bacteria present in ripened manganese removal filters for drinking water production. The bacterial population was identified with ‘next generation’ DNA sequencing, and specific bacteria were quantified with quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and characterized by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry ...

  • Impact of speciation on removal of manganese and organic matter by nanofiltration

    The removal of manganese and humic acid (HA) by two nanofiltration membranes, TFC-SR2 and TFC-SR3, was investigated in order to highlight the influence of speciation on manganese and HA retention. Manganese speciation and complexation with HA were modelled to understand how speciation could affect NF removal mechanisms. The behaviour of the two membranes was dramatically different in terms of ...

  • Rethinking aesthetic guidelines for manganese and iron in drinking water

    Manganese and iron are both internationally known causes of aesthetic issues in drinking water, however, there are limited data supporting their specific aesthetic guidelines, of which typical values are 0.05 mg/L Mn and 0.3 mg/L Fe. This study aims to clarify the concentrations at which off-flavors and off-colors caused by manganese and iron may be detected by consumers. Triangle tests of ...

  • Biodegradation and decolorization of melanoidin solutions by manganese peroxidase yeasts

    The ability of selected manganese peroxidase (MnP) yeast strains, isolated from the mixed liquor of an activated sludge bioreactor treating melanoidins wastewater, was investigated in this work, aiming to examine the degradation potential of melanoidins, in the presence or absence of nutrients. Ten yeast strains were initially isolated from the mixed liquor; four yeast strains (Y1, Y2, Y3 and ...

  • Efficiencies of advanced formulation Manganese - Case Study

    With manganese being the most commonly deficient trace element in UK soils and potentially impacting on the development, health, quality and yield of arable and vegetable crops, countering deficiencies is a necessity for many farms. John Bird from F D Bird & Sons, tells us how switching to a lower volume product has brought efficiencies in both time and cost.  Treatment of manganese ...

  • Total organic carbon in soils and its relation with manganese concentrations in soils and vegetation close to an abandoned manganese mine

    Abstract: This study aimed at quantifying the total organic carbon (TOC) present in soils within the proximity of the Kgwakgwe Mn oxide ore abandoned mine, Botswana, and establish its relationship with Mn concentrations in soils and vegetation based on multivariate and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) analytical techniques. Four hundred soil samples and 200 vegetation set samples were ...

  • Effectiveness of oxidative filter materials for manganese removal from groundwater

    The experiments reported in this paper were conducted at a pilot plant consisting of filtration columns filled with oxidative filter materials. The installation was supplied with water containing manganese in concentrations ranging from 0.2 to 1.4 mg/L. The aim of the experiments was to determine the effectiveness of manganese removal on the three filter media as a function of their internal ...

  • Impact of Redox Cycles on manganese, iron, cobalt, and lead in Nodules

    Redox processes are responsible for Fe and Mn segregation as Fe–Mn oxide coatings or nodules. These nodules are also trace element scavengers in soils. Redox processes are of particular importance in seasonally saturated soil containing naturally high concentrations of trace metals. We investigated the dynamics of Fe–Mn nodules and two associated trace elements, Co and Pb, under controlled redox ...

  • Transformation of an existing physicochemical plant for iron and manganese removal by the application of biological processes

    A system for removing iron and manganese in groundwater, based on biofiltration technology, was developed at the Center of Sanitary Engineering of the National University of Rosario, Argentina. This process has been successfully applied in several new water treatment plants in Argentina. This paper describes the transformation of an existing plant for iron and manganese removal in groundwater ...
