  • Domestic collections route optimisation

    Automation (the use on side arm automatic lift on domestic collection runs) over the last 5 years in Australia has changed the economic landscape of residential services dramatically. Yet the manual planning methods that people still use to map out and balance run areas is one of the last areas where the luddites amongst us are still reticent to use new technologies to automate the planning ...

  • The Elimination of Ethylene in Domestic Refrigerators

    Ethylene is a plant hormone produced naturally by fruit and other plant tissues. It is known as the ripening hormone because it regulates the series of processes associated with the ripening and senescence of fruit. Eliminating ethylene from the environment, both in storage chambers and transport containers, where it is stored in the form of gas, is a widespread practice designed to provide a ...

  • Small domestic wastewater treatment using waste materials

    Phosphorus pollution of groundwater from small wastewater system is often considered as a major threat for aquatic habitats. Recirculating biofilters are often used to treat small wastewater systems without significant removal of phosphorus. In this paper, a low-cost waste material (dried alum residual) in pre-treated effluents from recirculating biofilters was examined. Two different types of ...

  • Role of Public Parks/Gardens in attracting domestic tourists

    This is the ninth issue of TOURISMOS, starting its fifth year of publication (volume five). In the previous eight issues, our multidisciplinary journal aimed at justifying the rationale behind introducing yet another journal in tourism academic studies. Capitalising on this effort, we now focus on furthering our scope and consolidating our position in both conceptual developments and practical ...

  • An Infrastructure Grows · Decentralized Treatment and Recycling Domestic Wastewater

    THE TERM, “decentralized waste-water management,” refers to the process of treating and discharging treated wastewater in the local vicinity where it is generated. Decentralized systems typically use the soil as the final receptor of the treated wastewater instead of discharging to surface waters, which are generally the receptors of treated wastewater from larger centralized treatment plants. ...


  • Urban domestic wastewater: how to reduce individual injection?

    The present paper aims to identify ways to reduce pollution injected by residents in the urban wastewater network system. Two approaches are considered. The first one uses flow and pollutant calculation to test whether a polluter can easily be identified in a neighborhood. The second approach uses a survey to examine what incentive would be most effective to influence residents’ behavior. ...

  • Endosperm size diversity in domesticated, wild, and semiwild soybean

    Past literature documents that domesticated soybean, Glycine max (L.) Merr., has trivial to almost nonexistent galactomannan-containing endosperm in mature dormant seeds. Current preliminary observations confirm limited endosperm for many domesticated soybean accessions, but show that many others have markedly larger endosperm, as do all wild (G. soja Sieb. & Zucc.) and semiwild (G. gracilis ...

  • Treatment of domestic wastewater using upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor

    This paper presents the findings of the study on treatment of domestic wastewater using a laboratory scale Hybrid Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (HUASB) reactor. The reactor with a working volume of 5.9 L and plastic cut rings as packing media was operated at varying Hydraulic Retention Time (HRT) for a period of 110 days. While the COD removal varied from 75-86%, the BOD removal was in the ...

  • Treatment of domestic wastewater using composite ecological system in Chinese rural area

    In this study, a newly developed contaminant removal system for domestic wastewater in rural area was used at the first time in Henan province, China. This composite ecological system (CES) consists of septic tank (ST), improved soil filter (ISF) and surface flow wetland (SFW). The performances of the system was to investigate the removal of biological oxygen demand (BOD), total nitrogen (TN), ...

  • Use of domestic sewage effluent for sustainable production of vegetable in Kashmir valley

    Trace metals in discrete portions of knoll kohl were evaluated along with chemical composition of sewage effluent, irrigation water, and soil. High nutrients, Fe and Mn levels were noticed in the sewage effluent, whereas irrigation water showed recommended norms. Knoll kohl grown on sewage-irrigated soil accumulated sufficiently good amount of trace metals available to consumers. This study also ...

  • Treatment of domestic wastewater by a hybrid natural system

    The present study addresses performance evaluation of a hybrid natural system comprising of settling tank, sand-gravel filter (SGF), aerated constructed wetland (ACW) and vermifilter (VF) for the treatment of domestic wastewater. The sequential batch experiments were conducted in a pilot-scale experimental set-up. The biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5) was varied from 20 to 120 mg/L and the ...
