Ultrasound technology in green chemistry by Mika E. T Sillanpää( )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a new and rapidly growing science, the applications of ultrasound methods in environmental technology hold a promising future. Compared to conventional methods, ultrasonication can bring several benefits such as being environmentally friendly (no toxic chemical are used or produced), low cost, and compact, allowing on-site treatment. Besides an overview featuring the background behind ultrasonic technology, this brief summarizes the main studies and innovations reported in recent research that has utilized ultrasound methods in environmental analysis, water, and sludge treatment, soil and sediment remediation to air purification
Natural organic matter in water : characterization and treatment methods by Mika E. T Sillanpää( )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Approximately 77 percent of the freshwater used in the United States comes from surface-water sources and is subject to natural organic matter contamination according to the United States Geological Survey. This presents a distinct challenge to water treatment engineers. An essential resource to breakthroughs in the characterization, treatment and removal of natural organic matter (NOM) from drinking water, this book focuses on advance filtration and treatment options, and processes for reducing disinfection byproducts. Topics include: characterization of NOM including: general parameters, isolation and concentration, fractionation, composition and structural analysis and biological testing; removal methods such as inorganic coagulants, polyelectrolytes and composite coagulants; electrochemical and membranes removal methods such as: electrocoagulation, electrochemical oxidation, microfiltration and ultrafiltration, nanofiltration and membrane fouling. --

Occurrence, identification and removal of microplastic particles and fibers in conventional activated sludge process and advanced MBR technology( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are acting as routes of microplastics (MPs) to the environment, hence the urgent need to examine MPs in wastewaters and different types of sludge through sampling campaigns covering extended periods of time. In this study, the efficiency of a municipal WWTP to remove MPs from wastewater was studied by collecting wastewater and sludge samples once in every two weeks during a 3-month sampling campaign. The WWTP was operated based on the conventional activated sludge (CAS) process and a pilot-scale membrane bioreactor (MBR). The microplastic particles and fibers from both water and sludge samples were identified by using an optical microscope, Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) microscope and Raman microscope. Overall, the retention capacity of microplastics in the studied WWTP was found to be 98.3%. Most of the MP fraction was removed before the activated sludge process. The efficiency of an advanced membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology was also examined. The main related finding is that MBR permeate contained 0.4MP/L in comparison with the final effluent of the CAS process (1.0MP/L). According to this study, both microplastic fibers and particles are discharged from the WWTP to the aquatic environment. Graphical abstract: Highlights: Microplastic concentrations were studied in different stages of a municipal WWTP. Microplastics were identified by visual identification, FTIR- and Raman-microscopy. 98.3% of microplastic load was removed during conventional WWTP processes. MBR process had higher retention rate for microplastics than secondary CAS process. Polyester fibers and polyethylene fragments were detected most frequently

Potential of cobalt ferrite nanoparticles (CoFe2O4) for remediation of hexavalent chromium from synthetic and printing press wastewater( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Graphical abstract: Highlights: Removal efficiency of CoFe2 O4 nanoparticles for chromium ions was investigated. The saturation magnetization of nanoparticles was determined to be 50.8 Am 2  kg −1 . Langmuir adsorption capacity of CoFe2 O4 nanoparticles was calculated to be 16.73 mg g −1 . Abstract: Cobalt ferrite (CoFe2 O4 ) nanoparticles were successfully synthesized, characterized and utilized for the treatment of chromium containing synthetic wastewater and printing press wastewater. Characterization of CoFe2 O4 nanoparticles was carried out by XRD, TEM, SEM, AFM, VSM and BET surface area analysis. TEM analysis confirmed the formation of nanoparticles in the range of approximate 12–21 nm having the surface area of 41.31 m 2  g −1 . The saturation magnetization of nanoparticles was determined to be 50.8 Am 2  kg −1 . Langmuir adsorption capacity of CoFe2 O4 nanoparticles was calculated to be 16.73 mg g −1 . Kinetic study revealed that the Cr(VI) removal on CoFe2 O4 nanoparticles followed the pseudo-second-order kinetic model. Further, the temperature study revealed the endothermic nature of Cr(VI) adsorption. Thermodynamic study revealed the feasibility of Cr(VI) adsorption on CoFe2 O4 nanoparticles. Desorption study suggested that nanoparticles could be efficiently reused up to three cycles. The present study demonstrated that synthesized nanoparticles were quite efficient for the treatment of chromium ions and other metallic ions from printing press wastewater which further suggested that CoFe2 O4 nanoparticles could be successfully used for the treatment of metal- rich industrial effluents

Bacteria sensitivity index of UV disinfection of bacteria with shoulder effect( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: BSI was used to rank the UV inactivation sensitivity of 12 different bacteria. Relative fluence and BSI was correlated and validated by statistical analysis to derive the universal fluence equation. Shoulder broadness index was also used to correlate with BSI. BSI was used to predict the fluence required during UV disinfection of antibiotic resistant bacteria with maximal error less than 10%. BSI was also used to estimate the fluence required during UV disinfection of antibiotic resistant bacteria at 5 Log I . Abstract: In research, design, and validation of UV disinfection systems of a given bacteria, shoulder effect makes prediction of fluence required difficult. This study theoretically analyzes the fluence required to inactivate any bacteria vs. E. coli as the reference bacteria, at the same Log I . Bacteria sensitivity index (BSI) is defined as the ratio between the inactivation rate constant ki of any bacteria for the linear portion of the dose response curve to that kir of E. coli . Among three sets of fluence requirement reported by the US EPA[4], Sommer et al.[5, 20], and Chang et al.[6], the fluence required from the EPA is selected as the most suitable reference according to its predictive power as well as regulatory purpose. In the present study, shoulder broadness (SB), H0, is approximated with the intercept of the linear portion at the Log I  = 0. A universal equation which can be used to predict the fluence required of any bacteria with a shoulder: H  = (0.914 ± 0.055) * (BSI)E  * (Log I ) + H0 . Furthermore, shoulder broadness index (SBI) is defined as the ratio between the fluence difference of any bacteria and the reference bacteria such as E. coli divided by the SB of E. coli . To validate the equation, an independent set of fluence data during UV disinfection of four different ARBs reported by McKinney and Pruden[8] was used. When the predicted fluence by using BSI of the ARBs is compared with the reported fluence at different Log I levels with less than 10% error with Log I up to 5
