  • 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 ...


  • The Influence of Alkalising Amines on the Film Formation of Oleyldiamine Paper

    Summary The film formation of film forming amines (FFAs), commonly used as corrosion inhibitors in water/steam cycles, has been subject of various studies. However, less is known of the impact of alkalising amines (AA) on the film formation. AAs have a solubilising effect on the FFA and as a consequence might indirectly influence the properties of the ...

  • Adsorption of hexavalent chromium on dunite

    The paper presents and discusses the effect of various physicochemical parameters (e.g. pH, ionic strength, Cr(VI) initial concentration, amount of the adsorbent, temperature and contact time between metal ion and adsorbent) on the adsorption efficiency of Cr(VI) on dunite in aqueous solutions under atmospheric conditions. Evaluation of the experimental data shows that dunite presents increased ...

  • Mechanistic study of ozonation of p-nitrophenol in aqueous solution

    Ozonlysis in the treatment of p-nitrophenol solution was studied in this paper. The results indicated that the decomposition of p-nitrophenol was accelerated as the gas flow rate or pH value increased. When gaseous ozone concentration was 20.11 mg/L and pH was 3, after 24 min reaction, the removal rate of p-nitrophenol reached 73.04%, 86.11%, 91.71 % and 95% at the gas flow rate of 32, 40, 48 and ...

  • Photodegradation of diclofenac in aqueous solution by simulated sunlight irradiation: kinetics, thermodynamics and pathways

    Diclofenac (DCF) is one of the most frequently detected pharmaceuticals in various water samples. This paper studied the effects of aquatic environmental factors (pH, temperature and dissolved organic matter) on photodegradation of DCF under simulated sunlight. The results demonstrate that degradation pathways proceed via pseudo first-order kinetics in all cases and the photodegradation of DCF ...

  • Modeling Strategy for SBR Recovery after Upset

    The paper presents results of treatability study on wastewater highly contaminated with ammonia (800 mg/l), (phenols (300 mg/l), thiocyanate (210 mg/l), and arsenic up to 11 mg/l. The study was conducted in two sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) using biomass from a coke plant. After two months of acclimatization the biomass was able to remove ammonia to below 1 mg/l and phenols and thiocynate ...

  • Inactivation of particle-associated Escherichia coli with chlorine dioxide

    In this paper, the inactivation of both free Escherichia coli (FE) and particle-associated E. coli (PAE) with chlorine dioxide (ClO2) were investigated using granular activated carbon effluent water samples. The inactivation rate of FE was higher than that of PAE and the reactivation ratio of PAE was higher than that of FE, indicating the threat of ...

  • Implications and remediations of DMAEA-Q type polymer hydrolysis in wastewater treatment plants

    The present paper outlines the impact of hydrolysis occurring in DMAEA-Q type polymers in the dewatering facilities of municipal wastewater treatment plants. Laboratory studies of polymer hydrolysis kinetics were combined with full-scale dewatering experiments to investigate the influence of polymer charge loss on polymer consumption and cake dry matter yields. The results indicate that prolonged ...

  • Electrochemical degradation of methyl parathion

    This paper describes the degradation of commercially available methyl parathion by electro oxidation using Ti/RuO2 as anode, stainless steel as cathode and sodium chloride as a supporting electrolyte. Experiments were carried out at constant flow rate and various current densities such as 10, 12 and 15 A/dm² and various concentrations of sodium chloride. At regular time ...

  • Removal of ammonium from aqueous solutions using the residue obtained from struvite pyrogenation

    This paper reports the results of laboratory studies on the removal of ammonium from aqueous solutions using struvite pyrogenation residues. A series of experiments were conducted to examine the effects of the pyrogenation temperature (90–210 °C) and time (0.5–4 h) on the ammonium release of struvite. In addition, the pyrolysate of struvite produced at different pyrogenation temperatures and ...

  • Adsorption of 2-methylisoborneol and geosmin by a low-cost hybrid adsorbent synthesized from fly ash and bentonite

    This paper describes the synthesis of a low-cost hybrid adsorbent from activation of fly ash and bentonite to remove 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) and geosmin from water. These substances produce objectionable taste and odor problems at levels as low as 4–10 ng/L and an effective, low-cost method of removal would be useful. The effect of the initial pH, contact time and adsorbent dosage on the ...
