  • Optimization of cyanide extraction from wastewater using emulsion liquid membrane system by response surface methodology

    To solve the disposal problem of cyanide wastewater, removal of cyanide from wastewater using a water-in-oil emulsion type of emulsion liquid membrane (ELM) was studied in this work. Specifically, the effects of surfactant Span-80, carrier trioctylamine (TOA), stripping agent NaOH solution and the emulsion-to-external-phase-volume ratio on removal of cyanide were investigated. Removal of total ...

  • Modeling Tip: How Parallel Processing can Expedite Large AERMOD Model Runs

    Due to advances in scientific knowledge, higher resolution raw data, stringent air quality standards, and changing regulations, environmental modeling is demanding more and more from EHS professionals and their computers. All of these influences have resulted in significantly longer AERMOD model run times as compared to the predecessor regulatory model, ISCST. Instead of minutes, AERMOD runtimes ...

  • Estimating parameters of the variable infiltration capacity model using ant colony optimization

    Because hydrological models are so important for addressing environmental problems, parameter calibration is a fundamental task for applying them. A broadly used method for obtaining model parameters for the past 20 years is the evolutionary algorithm. This approach can estimate a set of unknown model parameters by simulating the evolution process. The ant colony optimization (ACO) algorithm ...
