  • Electrochemical Oxidation Of Organic Pollutants

    Abstract The main aim this paper is to use 'Electrochemical Technology for removal of Organic Pollutants from Waste Water'. Today hazardous waste management has become one of the most challenging tasks to this technological world because tons of organic pollutants including various carcinogens are being exposed without the sufficient treatment prescribed as per the 'ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ...


  • Persistent organic pollutants in the Arctic

    Persistent organic pollutants (POP) have been subject to research at NILU for a long time. These substances are toxic and are of anthropogenic origin, they accumulate in the environment, and they move through the environment so that after a discharge their traces including transformation products can be found in far-away places in air, water, soil and biological ...

  • The Phase 1 Environmental Assessment

    In today’s world where every property is subject to potential environmental risks a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment or ESA is an appropriate action to take. An ESA can help determine if the property has been contaminated by previous or current activities. The ESA can help protect the purchaser of a property from environmental risks prior to the closing on a property.  Lenders ...

  • How Do You Know If An Industrial Facility Needs a Wastewater Treatment System?

    Not properly treating wastewater can potentially harm the environment, human health, and a facility’s process or products (especially if the wastewater is being reused). It can also cause a company to incur heavy fines and possible legal action if wastewater is being improperly discharged into a POTW (publicly owned treatment works) or to the environment (usually under a National Pollutant ...

  • Biosolids ban struck down

    In 1994, Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts (LACSD) bought a 4,700-acre farm (called Green Acres Farm) in southwest Kern County for the purpose of land applying biosolids from its 11 wastewater treatment plants. LACSD land applied 800 wet tons/day at this site for several years. In 2006, Kern County voters passed Measure E on the ballot with 83 percent approval. This measure banned ...

Here at E Instruments, we know that having a successful, and fully-functioning warehouse is dependent on whether or not the equipment is being maximized, and if the workers are working in a healthy environment that encourages productivity. However, we also know all ...

  • Los Angeles County WRRF Embraces Codigestion

    Technology to produce food waste slurry key to project implementation - and helps generators comply with California organics recycling mandates. The Sanitation Districts’ JWPCP in Carson (CA) treats an average of 280 million gallons/day of wastewater. One of the two anaerobic digestion tanks above has been used for codigestion, with the second serving as the control. Photos ...

  • Land use patterns and organic pollution in the rivers

    The riverine system is an important resource of water supply to the communities but rivers are being contaminated due to organic pollutants, which is a serious problem. Organic contamination has been discussed with regard to the different rivers of the world. Various organic pollutants, detected in water and the sediment of the rivers, have been reported. The effects of different land use ...

  • Cattle egrets as a biosentinels of persistent organic pollutants exposure

    We investigated selected chlorinated pollutants (β-HCH, γ-HCH, DDDs, DDEs, o,p′-DDT, p,p′-DDT, heptachlor, aldrin, dieldrin, and endrin) in the Lahore and the Sialkot districts of Pakistan, using eggs of cattle egret (Bubulcus ibis) collected during May and June 2007. The pollutant with highest level and frequency was ΣDDT, followed by β-HCH, γ-HCH, ...

  • Modified biopolymer adsorbent for the removal of dissolved organic pollutants

    Chemically modified cellulose fibres were used as adsorbents for the removal of organic compounds and herbicides from water. The chemical modification of fibres by grafting hydrocarbon moieties enhances the adsorption capacity of cellulose substrate. The adsorption behaviour of the modified fibres towards various organic solutes and three herbicides was investigated. The viability of application ...

  • Screening of volatile organic compounds as a source for indoor pollution

    For a considerable period of time the presence of an increasing number of chemicals has been observed in almost all aspects of human life. This process also affects the living and working environment of man. Human development, including physical and mental health and well-being, depends on to a great degree on the surrounding environment. Considering that an average person spends a significant ...

  • Metals and organic pollutants in snow surrounding an iron factory

    Abstract To estimate air pollution snow samples were collected in March 2001 at six sites in the vicinity of the Kostomuksha factory in Karelia. Seventy-two chemical elements and more than 200 individual organic compounds were identified by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS). It was found that the levels of Li, B, Al, Fe, Ni, Cu, ...

  • Ozone treatment of organic micro-pollutants in sewage sludge

    Organic micro-pollutants accumulate to a certain extent in sewage sludge and are therefore ecologically relevant if the sludge is to be reused in both agriculture and landscaping applications. This paper describes the degradation of endocrine-disrupting compounds and other micro-contaminants by means of ozone and ultrasonic treatment. One of the findings is that, as expected, aromatic compounds ...

  • Priority organic pollutants in the urban water cycle (Toulouse, France)

    Application of the European Water Framework Directive requires Member States to have better understanding of the quality of surface waters in order to improve knowledge of priority pollutants. Xenobiotics in urban receiving waters are an emerging concern. This study proposes a screening campaign of nine molecular species of xenobiotics in a separated sewer system. Five sites were investigated ...

  • Preparation and selective adsorption of organic pollutants by an inorganic molecular imprinted polymer

    A novel inorganic molecular imprinted polymer (MIP) was synthesized by adding Al3+ to the Fe/SiO2 gel with Acid Orange II (AO II) as the template. The MIP was characterized by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and nitrogen adsorption-desorption measurement. Compared with the non-imprinted polymer (NIP), the MIP enhanced the ...
