  • Bioremediation of Effluent the Pulp and Paper Industry

    The treatment of industrial effluent from the paper manufacturing facilities in British Columbia is a major concern because the effluent is discharged into prime salmon habitat in the marine environment (Cross, 1994). High levels of biological oxygen demand (BOD) in the effluent reduce the dissolved oxygen (DO) available to species in the marine environment. In 1988, the Federal Department of ...


  • Case study - California vineyard improves sludge movement with aeration

    Overview A California vineyard was faced with the challenge of meeting wastewater treatmentcompliance under a tight deadline defined by local regulators, while receiving ongoingodor complaints from the community. Challenges Extended periods of mismanagement from previous owners left the facility and the wastewater treatment system in disarray. ...

  • Wastewater effluent characteristics from Moroccan textile industry

    The objectives of this work were to carry out a complete characterization of textile wastewater, resulting from a textile unit located in the Marrakesh region. A physico-chemical characterization has been performed, focused on organic and toxicological aspects. The cladoceran Daphnia magna was used as the sensor organism and lethal concentration as a criterion to measure the toxicity of ...

  • Toxicity reduction in industrial and municipal effluents – the state of the art

    Developments in treatment technology have traditionally focused on removal of specific contaminants: BOD, solids, ammonia, TOC and lately, specific organics such as phenol. A limit on effluent toxicity, however, does not fit so neatly into a procedural package, since it truly integrates the presence and impacts of contaminants in a sample. Toxicity reduction evaluation procedures, therefore, are ...

  • Treatment of Water-Wash Paintbooth Effluents in the Automotive Industry

    During the coating process of car bodies in water-wash spray booth, around 40% of the sprayed paint does not reach the support; these paint particles sprayed into the air are called “overspray”. By using a dawn-draft positive air pressure coming from the ceiling of the cabin, the polluted air is forced vertically downward toward a grating on the floor under which a constant stream of water is ...

  • The removal of organic pollutants from industrial effluents via tapered bed adsorption columns

    Tapered bed adsorption columns, using activated carbon, have been used to study the removal of two organic pollutants, an acid dye and para-chlorophenol, from aqueous effluent. Equilibrium sorption isotherms were measured to provide the saturation capacity (qe) of each pollutant by Chemviron Filtrasorb 400 carbon, for operating continuous adsorption columns. The three parameter Redlich-Peterson ...

  • System for bioremediation of effluents

    Executive Summary The remediation process of commercial, municipal, industrial and agricultural wastewaters has employed combinations of sulfuric acid, caustic, petroleum based solvents and synthetic emulsifiers, which are either toxic or generally non-biodegradable. An alternate method using naturally occurring microorganisms has been utilized for many years to facilitate the remediation ...

  • Cost benefit analysis of measures to reduce industrial effluent discharges

    In an environmentally harmonized society the most cost effective measures to reduce the total effluent discharges should be taken into account. Generalised discharge values are presented for organic material and nutrients in this paper. Depending on conditions in the receiving water any of these parameters can be the determining factor for the eutrophication and oxygen demand. These parameters ...

  • Removal of Chromium From Effluents of Tanning Industries and its Reuse

    Air and water are the basic needs of human being and other living entities on the earth. Tanning industry uses water and some chemicals and so creates environmental problems, depending basically on two principal sources, hide and water. The processes of tanning are based on chromium sulphate and vegetable treatment of hide. According to the national environment quality standards (NEQS) the ...


  • Organic contaminants of emerging concern in sediments and flatfish collected near outfalls discharing treated wastewater effluent to the Southern California Bight

    To investigate the occurrence and bioaccumulation of organic contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) near four major wastewater ocean outfalls in the southern California Bight, more than 75 pharmaceutical and personal care products, current‐use pesticides, and industrial/commercial chemicals were analyzed in sediment and liver tissues of hornyhead turbot (Pleuronichthys verticalis) using gas ...

  • Organic matter and heavy metal removals from complexed metal plating effluent by the combined electrocoagulation/Fenton process

    In the present study, the treatment of metal plating wastewater containing complexed metals originating from the nickel and zinc plating process by electrocoagulation (EC) using stainless steel electrodes was explored. In order to improve the organic matter removal efficiency, the effect of H2O2 addition to the electrocoagulation (the combined EC/Fenton process) application was investigated. For ...

  • Test organisms behaviour on municipal and industrial wastewater quality assessment

    Industrial wastewaters quality became a target for the environmental toxicity assessment nowadays. When there are issues with complex effluents for which many chemicals cannot be quantified and/or interactive effects are likely to be significant, the use of bioassays with different test species becomes a more reliable way in the assessment of toxicity. Ecotoxicity evaluation of the several ...

  • A Study on Assessment on Pollution Load from Dairy Effluent

    ABSTRACTBiodegradation is increasingly being considered as a less expensive alternative to physical and chemical means of decomposing organic pollutants. Pathways of biodegradation have been characterized for a number of microorganisms, some of which have been used for remediation of water. Because algae are photoautotrophic their use for bioremediation of surface waters would circumvent the ...


  • Bioplastic production using wood mill effluents as feedstock

    Fibreboard production is one of the most important industrial activities in Galicia (Spain). Great amounts of wastewater are generated, with properties depending on the type of wood, treatment process, final product and water reusing, among others. These effluents are characterized by a high chemical oxygen demand, low pH and nutrients limitation. Although anaerobic digestion is one of the most ...
