  • Signs You Need a New Water Pump

    Motor vehicles are built upon small parts doing big jobs. Consider your engine. It is likely the most important machine within your car, truck, or SUV, but it is not made up of one or two components, but thousands.

  • Phosphorus removal from aqueous solution using a novel granular material developed from building waste

    In this study, a granular material (GM) developed from building waste was used for phosphate removal from phosphorus-containing wastewater. Batch experiments were executed to investigate the phosphate removal capacity of this material. The mechanism of removal proved to be a chemical precipitation process. The characteristics of the material and resulting precipitates, the kinetics of the ...

  • Utilization of two agrowastes for adsorption and removal of methylene blue: kinetics and isotherm studies

    Fresh water streams contaminated with synthetic dye-containing effluents pose a threat to aquatic and human life either by preventing aquatic photosynthesis or by entering into the food chain. Adsorptive removal of such dyes with potent biosorbents is an important technique to reduce bioaccumulation and biomagnifications of the dyes in human life. We report use of betel nut (BN) husk and ...

  • Iron oxide impregnated sugarcane bagasse waste material as sorbent for As(III) removal from water: kinetic, equilibrium and thermodynamic studies

    Adsorption of arsenite (As(III)) from aqueous solutions onto iron oxide impregnated sugarcane bagasse was investigated in this study. The linear regression analysis showed that Langmuir adsorption isotherm fitted well to the experimental data. Langmuir constants ‘a’ related to the adsorption capacity and ‘b’ related to the binding energy of sorption system were found to be 1.55 mg/g and 46.44 ...
