Organic by-products of Drinking Water Chlorination

by

Nikolaou N., Kostopoulou M. and Lekkas T.D.

General

Chlorination of drinking water leads to the formation of a variety of Disinfection By-Products (DBPs) that may have adverse health effects on humans. Research on this subject has been continued and new epidemiological and toxicological studies have been conducted. This review summarizes factors...

Analysis of the 11-year Record (1987-1997) of Air Pollution measurements in Athens, Greece. Part I: Primary air pollutants

by

Kalabokas P.D., Viras L.G. and Repapis C.C.

General

A climatological analysis of atmospheric concentrations of primary air pollutants in Athens, Greece, is presented for the 11-year period 1987-1997, since the automated local air pollution network operating by the Ministry of Environment started to record all conventional pollutants. The...

Analysis of the 11-year Record (1987-1997) of Air Pollution measurements in Athens, Greece. Part II: Photochemical air pollutants

by

Kalabokas P.D., Viras L.G. and Repapis C.C.

General

This paper deals with the analysis of atmospheric concentrations of secondary photochemical air pollutants in Athens for the 11-year period 1987-1997. Photochemical pollution, which seems to be the most serious air pollution problem in Athens, is originating mainly from the transformation of car...

Modeling atmospheric aerosol using thermodynamic arguments - A Review

by

Pilinis Chr.

Air Quality

Atmospheric aerosols have been implicated in human health effects, visibility reduction in urban and regional areas, acidic deposition, and altering the earth’s radiation balance. A major goal of scientific research for the last fifteen years has been the development of the necessary models, using...

Air-vegetation-soil partitioning of toxic chemicals in environmental simulation modeling

by

Tsiros I.X., Ambrose R.B. and Chronopoulou-Sereli A.

General

Accumulation of airborne pollutants in vegetation is an important initial step in the uptake process of the terrestrial food web, providing direct and indirect routes by which biota and, eventually, humans are exposed to chemicals. A set of algorithms for estimating atmospheric pollutant...

Production of low aromatics and low sulfur diesel in a hydrodesulfurization (HDS) pilot plant unit

by

Lappas A.A., Budisteanu R., Drakaki K. and Vasalos I.A.

General

The present work investigates the hydrotreating process of a diesel in order to achieve lower sulphur and aromatics content. The entire work was performed in a Hydrodesulphurization (HDS) pilot plant unit located in Chemical Process Engineering Research Institute (CPERI). For the tests, a commercial...

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in Business. An overview on drivers, applications, issues and future perspectives.

by

Frankl P. and Rubik R.

General

In recent years, a considerable research effort has been devoted to Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA). However, most of the work has been focusing on improving the methodology as such and providing guidelines for carrying out LCA studies. Much less effort has been dedicated to the exploration and analysis...

Soil adsorption behaviour and photomineralization by photocatalytic membranes immobilizing titanium dioxide of atrazine and intermediates

by

Gawlik B. M., Moroni A., Bellobono I.R. and Muntau H.W.

General

The soil adsorption behaviour of atrazine and its photodegradation intermediate 4,6-diamino-2-chloro-1,3,5- s-triazine (I), was evaluated by measuring partition coefficients on five representative European topsoils using classical batch experiments. From this study, (I) appears to be less...

Estimation of secondary organic aerosol (SOA) production from traffic from the city of Athens

by

Kourtidis K. and Ziomas I.

General

Estimates of the amount of secondary organic aerosol formed in the atmosphere from the degradation of traffic C6-C12 hydrocarbon emissions in the city of Athens are presented. Around 1.26 tn of organic aerosol is estimated to be produced during a six hours air pollution episode from the aromatic...
