  • Comparative studies on adsorptive removal of heavy metal ions by biosorbent, bio-char and activated carbon obtained from low cost agro-residue

    In this study, Fe(III) and Cr(III) metal ion adsorption processes were carried out with three adsorbents in batch experiments and their adsorption performance was compared. These adsorbents were sesame stalk without pretreatment, bio-char derived from thermal decomposition of biomass, and activated carbon which was obtained from chemical activation of biomass. Scanning electron microscopy and ...

  • Thermal plasma processing in the production of value added products from municipal solid waste (MSW) derived sources

    Abstract The disposal of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is an increasingly difficult challenge for communities. Advanced thermal treatment (ATT) technologies, such as Gasplasma®, have been specifically developed to effectively utilise wastes to generate clean electrical power. An added beneficial feature of this process is the conversion of ash-type materials in the MSW to ...

  • Formation of Ni–driven nano–sized structures on Ag/Ge(111)–√3 × √3 surface: STM study

    The formation of nano–sized structures upon room temperature (RT) deposition of small amounts of Ni (∼0.1 ml) onto an Ag/Ge(111)–√3 × √3 surface was investigated by scanning tunnelling microscopy. The RT behaviour was dominated by the formation of Ni clusters, which did not interact chemically with the surface. The images as obtained after annealing within the temperature range between 100ºC and ...
