  • Monitoring the fate of fluorescing substances recycled in ultrafiltration process backwash water

    The fate of fluorescing substances during the recycling of membrane backwash water (MBWW) ahead of coagulation, flocculation and sedimentation (CFS) with ultrafiltration (UF) membranes has been investigated. Bench-scale UF membranes were used to generate MBWW from a CFS-treated surface water containing 21 mg/L dissolved organic carbon (DOC) registering a 0.95 cm–1 UV254 absorbance that ...

  • Different Banana Drying Processes

    Bananas are highly perishable due to their high moisture content and therefore very susceptible to postharvest losses during handling, transportation and storage. Thus, it is of great importance to use an appropriate process method to reduce the losses.  Drying process is one of alternative ways to preserve the food quality and increase its value. The objective is the removal of water ...

  • Electrocoagulation Wastewater Treatment – An Application To Sustainably Reuse Textile Wastewater

    The textile industry is a water consumption intensive industry. Water is utilized for cleaning the raw material, and for the different steps in the textile dyeing process. Due to the effects of water scarcity and stricter environmental regulations, the cost of fresh water utilization has increased worldwide. In addition, the textile industry is faced with pressure by government regulators to move ...

  • How to Choose the Best Boiler Feed Water Treatment Technologies for Your Plant

    When it comes to choosing technology for boiler feed water treatment, knowing the feed water source quality in relation to the water quality required for your specific boiler is essential, as inadequate water treatment can lead to the scaling, corrosion, and fouling of the boiler and downstream equipment. We’ve mentioned this before in some of our previous boiler feed water treatment ...

  • Do You Need a Boiler Feedwater Treatment System for Your Plant?

    If you use an industrial boiler to create energy with steam, chances are you need some sort of boiler feedwater treatment system. But why? We know that natural water sources carry impurities that can cause harmful deposits, carryover, and corrosion in your boiler system. We also know that the higher the pressure your boiler runs at, the more pure your water source needs to be. ...

  • Effect of acetic acid in recycling water on ethanol production for cassava in an integrated ethanol–methane fermentation process

    Recently, the integrated ethanol–methane fermentation process has been studied to prevent wastewater pollution. However, when the anaerobic digestion reaction runs poorly, acetic acid will accumulate in the recycling water. In this paper, we studied the effect of low concentration of acetic acid (≤25 mM) on ethanol fermentation at different initial pH values (4.2, 5.2 or 6.2). At an initial pH ...
