  • Electrochemical oxidation of m-cresol purple dye in aqueous media

    The present investigation showed that the indicator dye m-cresol purple (mCP) was degraded in a laboratory scale, undivided electrolysis cell system. A platinum anode was used for generation of chlorine in the dye solution. The influence of supporting electrolyte, applied voltage, pH, initial dye concentration and temperature were studied. The ultraviolet-visible spectra of ...

  • Understand the Capabilities of Bio-Oxidation

    Biological air-pollution control technology* has been used extensively in Europe for decades and, to a lesser extent, in North America for the past two decades. Most installations in the U.S. have been on air-emission vent streams that were not subject to numerical limits (i.e., ...


  • Treatment of heavy metals by iron oxide coated and natural gravel media in Sustainable urban Drainage Systems

    Sustainable urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) filter drains are simple, low-cost systems utilized as a first defence to treat road runoff by employing biogeochemical processes to reduce pollutants. However, the mechanisms involved in pollution attenuation are poorly understood. This work aims to develop a better understanding of these mechanisms to facilitate improved SuDS design. Since heavy metals ...

  • A laboratory-scale comparison of compost and sand—compost—perlite as methane-oxidizing biofilter media

    Municipal solid waste landfills produce methane, a potent greenhouse gas. A treatment approach is to passively vent landfill gas through a methane-oxidizing biofilter medium, a porous substrate that facilitates the growth of methanotrophic bacteria. Two substrates, compost and a sand—compost—perlite (SCP) mixture, were evaluated in a laboratory-scale experiment for their suitability as biofilter ...

  • Oxidative treatment of diclofenac via ferrate(VI) in aqueous media: effect of surfactant additives

    The potential reaction of diclofenac (DCF) with ferrate(VI) and influences of coexisting surfactants have not been investigated in depth, and are the focus of this study. The results demonstrated that DCF reacted effectively and rapidly with Fe(VI) and approximately 75% of DCF (0.03 mM) was removed by excess Fe(VI) (0.45 mM) within 10 min. All of the reactions followed pseudo first-order ...

  • Investigation of UV-assisted chlorophenol congeners’ degradation by organic oxidant p-nitrobenzoic acid in basic media

    This research specifically addressed the photodegradation of selected model chlorophenol (CP) congeners, 4-chlorophenol (4-CP), 2,4-dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP), 2,4,6-trichlorophenol (2,4,6-TCP) and pentachlorophenol (PCP), by an organic oxidant, p-nitrobenzoic acid (PNBA), in basic media. The reactions were followed by high-pressure liquid chromatography and gas chromatography–mass ...

  • Oxidizer operating cost reduction strategies

    The mainstream media today is full of allusions to energy awareness and conservation. Just as visible these days are media references to astronomical dollar figures that can boggle the mind. This article does not seek to break out of that mold, but rather to conform to it – as Oxidizer Stack Heat Recovery offers a tremendous opportunity for both energy conservation and energy cost reduction. ...
