Toxicity reduction in leather tanning wastewater by improved coagulation flocculation process


Lofrano G., Belgiorno V., Gallo M., Raimo A. and Meri? S.


The wastewater of leather industry which is one of the most widespread industries having large amount of water consumption and very high pollution loads, may be characterized by several key parameters including toxic pollutants exhibiting toxicity. Therefore the effluent of leather tanning industry...

Use of ion exchange for removal of Ammonium: A biological regeneration of zeolite


Rahmani A.R. and Mahvi A.H.


Nitrogen in the Ammonia form can have deleterious effects in water resources. Ion Exchange by zeolite and biological Nitrification processes are two proposed methods for removing Nitrogen compounds from wastewater and effluents. The main objective of this research was to investigate the efficiency...

Trace element removal from hot gasification flue gases using solid sorbents


Diaz-Somoano M., Lopez-Anton M.A. and Martinez-Tarazona M.R.


Coals contain elements which, although usually found in concentrations lower than 1% (trace elements), can give rise to environmental or technological problems. After gasification most of these elements may occur in gas phase in different proportions. In order to avoid the problems that the presence...

Sulfuration treatment of electroplating wastewater for selective recovery of copper, zinc and nickel resource


Fukuta T., Matsuda H., Seto F. and Yagishita K.


In the electroplating process, various metal salts are used and the residues on the surface of electroplated materials are rinsed out as wastewater, followed by hydration in a wastewater disposal step. Although a variety of metals are concentrated in the sludge, the mixed heterogeneous state of...

Removal of methylene blue by using biosolid


Sarioglu M. and Atay U.A.


The mechanism of Methylene Blue adsorption on biosolid (waste sludge) has been studied through batch experiments. The effects of various experimental parameters, such as pH (3- 11), biosolid dosage (1-10 g l-1), contact time (5-1440 min) and initial dye concentration were investigated. The results...

Aeration / Stripping of n-Butyl Mercaptan in aqueous environment


Matsis V.M. and Grigoropoulou H.P.


╬ťany applications in water quality management have a common key water quality parameter, dissolved oxygen, resulting to the critical role of aeration. On the other hand, in municipal and industrial wastewater, especially where aeration is applied, the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)...

Ozone pre-oxidation of a textile industry wastewater for acute toxicity removal


Selcuk H. and Meric S.


In this work, pre-ozonation for degradation, decolourization and detoxicifying of a raw textile wastewater collected in a textile fininshing industry, Istanbul (Turkey) is investigated. Differing from the previous studies, a low ozone (O3) flow rate (9.6 mg min-1) was applied at original pH of the...

Effects of pyrolysis temperature, residence time on the reactivity of clean coals produced from poor quality coals


Skodras G., Natas P., Basinas P. and Sakellaropoulos G.P.


Combustion of poor quality coals is used today worldwide for energy production. The removal of polluting compounds, i.e. S, N, Hg and Cl from them prior to combustion is important not only for improving the coal quality, but also for meeting the strict environmental standards. Thus, a preventive...
