  • Removal of nitrogen and carbon organic matter by chitosan and aluminium sulphate

    River and lake waters were separated into four fractions to study the removal of nitrogen and carbon organic matter using chitosan (CH) and aluminium sulphate (AS). The fractions were very hydrophobic acid, slightly hydrophobic acid, charged hydrophilic acid and neutral hydrophilic. The results showed that the whole and fractionated water from both sources have a markedly hydrophobic character. ...

  • Recovery of phosphorus and aluminium from sewage sludge ash by a new wet chemical elution process (SESAL-Phos-recovery process)

    The potential of a new wet chemical process for phosphorus and aluminium recovery from sewage sludge ash by sequential elution with acidic and alkaline solutions has been investigated: SESAL-Phos (sequential elution of sewage sludge ash for aluminium and phosphorus recovery). Its most innovative aspect is an acidic pre-treatment step in which calcium is leached from the sewage sludge ash. Thus ...

  • Naturally endowed oxide nanoparticles from carbon ash in Saudi Arabia

    Chemical analysis of carbon ash powder obtained from water desalination plants in Saudi Arabia has revealed that 84.3% of the ash is pure carbon while the remaining percentage is combinations of oxide materials, mainly silicon and aluminium. These oxides were extracted by sintering the ash powder at 900°C. Shape and size of the obtained oxide powder were determined by transmission electron ...

  • Land application of Water Treatment Residuals: effect on wheat yield and the availability of phosphorus and aluminium

    Water Treatment Residuals (WTR) can be a potential source for available phosphorus (P) and Al, but the influence of WTR rates on the dynamics of available P and Al and plant uptake in alkaline soils are not well documented. Our objective was to evaluate the effects of WTR (Alum-sludge) on the agronomic performance of wheat crop grown in alkaline soils as well as P and Al availability and ...
