  • Erosion control products: cost effective alternatives for revegetation

    Erosion is any horticulturist’s worst nightmare. From the process of replanting and restoration, to the loss of the most fertile soil, i.e. the topsoil, erosion can have damaging effects on any cultivation. Although erosion is mainly associated with water erosion, wind erosion and tillage are another two forms of erosion. So what are the signs that can help identify erosion early ...

  • Case study - South Pool Creek, Devon

    Part of the works to repair an essentials road recently damaged by a landslide required hydroseeding to it's slopes and to help retain the soil an erosion control blanket was fitted by the client prior to seeding. Additional tackifier was added to the mix to help bind the sprayed on material to the steep slopes until germination and the establishment of the new grasses. Project Size: ...

  • Kinetic evaluation and process performance of an upflow anaerobic filter reactor degrading terephthalic acid

    The anaerobic degradation of terephthalic acid (TA) as the sole organic carbon source was studied in an upflow anaerobic filter (UAF) reactor. The reactor was seeded with biomass obtained from a full-scale upflow anaerobic sludge bed (UASB) reactor and was used to treat wastewater from a petrochemical facility producing dimethyl terephthalate. The UAF reactor was operated for 252 d with a ...

  • Effect of hydraulic retention time and seed material on phosphorus recovery and crystal size from urine in an air-agitated reactor

    Phosphorus (P) recovery from urine is affected by various parameters. This study evaluates the effects of hydraulic retention time (HRT) and seed material on P recovery and crystal size in an air-agitated reactor. Results show that ortho-phosphate removal and struvite recovery efficiencies were 96.3% and 89.5%, and 97.1% and 93.0%, after five runs of HRTs of 1 and 2 ...

  • Optimum organic loading rate for semi-continuous operation of an anaerobic process for biogas production from Jatropha curcas seed cake

    This paper reports on biogas production by anaerobic digestion of Jatropha curcas seed cake in semi continuous flow at 30°C, focusing on increasing the organic loading rate (OLR) of seed cake by investigating levels of 1.25, 1.67, 2.5, 3.33 and 5 kg Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)/m³ day. Reactors were fed at flow rates of 125, 167, 250, 333 and 500 ml/day, yielding Hydraulic Retention Times (HRTs) ...

  • Establishment and growth of two willow species in a Riparian zone impacted by mine tailings

    Received for publication April 2, 2008. A field study was initiated to determine survival, growth characteristics, and metal uptake of two montane riparian willow species, Geyer (Salix geyeriana Andersson) and mountain (S. monticola Bebb) willow, grown in amended fluvial mine tailing deposits. Revegetation was done with staked and previously rooted cuttings to determine if planting method had an ...

  • Evaluation of sgbr and uasb reactors to treat pulp and paper wastewater.

    Abstract The present study evaluated the performance of a static granular bed reactor (SGBR) and an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor at mesophilic conditions under various hydraulic retention times (HRTs) for the treatment of paper mill wastewater. Wastewater was provided by Grand Rapids Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) in Minnesota, USA. Anaerobic seed granules were ...

  • Add-on biz: hydroseeding

    You always know where hydroseeders have been: they leave hillsides, golf courses and residential lawns a strange green-gray color that turns into tough native plants and lush, green turf. 0Chris Haddock, owner of CBH Landscape Contractors in New Hampshire, added hydroseeding to his business in the early 1990s. The bulk of his company's work is residential, but he also does golf courses, shopping ...

  • Ammonium fixation in selected California decomposed granites

    Abstract  Revegetation on disturbed, low organic matter content, decomposed granite (DG) substrates are limited by low plant-available moisture and nitrogen. Data from a single DG site in northern California, USA, showed that a significant fraction of the ammonium from fertilizers or organic matter mineralization was fixed into silicate interlayer positions. To evaluate the broader relevance of ...

  • Effects of Operational Conditions on the Performance of Triethylamine Biofiltration

    ABSTRACT Nitrogen compounds such as triethylamine are odorants generally found in chemical plants and foundries in which cold-box cores are made. In this study, the efficiency of biofiltration of triethylamine (TEA) vapor was evaluated. Experiments were conducted in two 6-L biofilters arranged in three stages and packed with inoculated compost - wood chips (40:60v/v) as the filter medium. The ...
