  • Adsorption of ammonium using waste activated sludge from palm oil mill effluent treatment plant

    Low cost adsorbent was prepared using waste activated sludge (WAS) from a palm oil mill effluent (POME) treatment plant, and used to adsorb ammonium from aqueous solution. The effect of initial concentration, temperature, pH and adsorbent dose was studied in batch test to determine the kinetic and thermodynamic properties. The results showed that the uptake of ammonia increased with an increase ...

  • Utilising waste activated sludge from a palm oil mill effluent treatment plant to remove methylene blue in continuous column studies

    The Waste Activated Sludge (WAS) discharged during the aerobic treatment of Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) was used to produce a low cost adsorbent for the removal of Methylene Blue (MB) from aqueous solution. This study employed a continuous process in a column packed with WAS as the adsorbent. The adsorption data fits Thomas and Yoon–Nelson model better compared to Adams–Bohart model under ...

  • Oil Skimming...no longer a luxury

    Tramp oils – hydraulic oil, lubricating oil and greases, and protective metal coatings, in coolant create expensive and frustrating problems. Tramp oils in coolant provide a breeding ground for bacteria and can cause problems ranging from unpleasant odor to employee skin rashes. When tramp oils combine with other contaminants in coolant they can form a sticky substance that clogs lines and ...

  • Hydraulic Oil Spill on Roadway

    Fuel Oil Soaked Wood. Contact was made to our office in May/2007 regarding the wood base underneath an oil/kerosene furnace system which, upon removal, it was discovered that kerosene had leaked and was somewhat permeated, leaving an odor. With over-time saturation of the wood, we recommended multiple treatments. After use of our Terracap 3000/4000 kit, we received the following in a letter: "I ...


  • Regeneration of used oil

    Used oil regeneration technologies Over time, oil accumulates oxidation products, contaminants and impurities which drastically reduce its quality. Contaminated oil can no longer meet quality requirements and must be changed. Waste oil is collected and regenerated to retain valuable basic materials. Oil cannot be recycled at petroleum processing plants with ...
