Integrated strategy to enhance biogas production from mango peel waste


Suryawanshi P.C., Satyam A. and Chaudhari A.B.


The present study has successfully explored the use of pomegranate seed de-oiled cake as a major additive and micronutrients solution as a minor additive to enhance production of biogas and enrich its methane content, using mango peel as the initial substrate. While micronutrients solution has...

Comparison of particle emissions from enclosed parking garages and streets


Obaidullah M., Dyakov I.V., Peeters L., Bram S. and de Ruyck J.

Air Quality

The aim of this study was to compare particulate matter (PM) pollutants performed at three different enclosed parking garages (A, B and C) and two streets (1 and 2) in Belgium. Particle mass concentrations, number concentrations and their size distributions were measured in real time using an...

A study of the role of micrometeorological conditions on uptake of 3,4-dichloroaniline in maize


Droulia F.E., Matsoukis A.S., Chronopoulou-Sereli A.G., Giannopolitis C.N. and Tsiros I.X.


3,4-dichloroaniline (3,4-DCA) is a hardly biodegradable and hydrolysable compound, characterized as a persistent pollutant for water, soil and sediment and highly toxic for living organisms. In this work, the impact of different micrometeorological conditions on uptake of 3,4-DCA was investigated in...

Toxicity potential of particulates in the airshed of haulage vehicle park


Fakinle B.S., Sonibare J.A., Akeredolu F.A., Okedere O.B. and Jimoda L.A.


This study examined the toxicity potential of total suspended particulate in the airshed of a haulage vehicle park located in a major highway connecting Lagos, the commercial centre of Nigeria to its other parts. It has an approximate area of 0.6 km2. Ambient air total suspended particulates (TSP)...

Potential of biowastes to remediate diesel fuel contaminated soil


Agamuthu P. and Dadrasnia A.


The unintended release of hydrocarbons into the environment can negatively impact human and animal health, and could further change the characteristics of soils. The aim of the present work was to investigate the rate of biodegradation at 10 and 20% diesel fuel in contaminated soil amended with 10%...
