Oil Removal From Produced Water Using Natural Materials
The oil and gas industry has had to deal with a massive amount of waste water as a bi-product of the exploration of oil and gas. This waste water referred to as produced water (PW) and the amount of PW increases with the ...
Production of Activated Carbon from Sewage Sludge for the Removal of Lead from Water
Different activated carbons were produced from sewage sludge taken from Sharjah waste water treatment plant. Carbonization and activation were carried out in steam environment without an external flowing inert stream or ...
Modeling Water Flux in Forward Osmosis: Implications for Improved Membrane Design
In efforts to make fresh water available to all people, researchers are dedicated to establish a water treatment method that will reduce the cost of production and impact on the environment. Forward osmosis desalination ...
Removal of Heavy Metals from Wastewater Using Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes
Recently, carbon nanotubes have been employed as new adsorbent for the removal of many pollutants. In this study, raw multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were firstly tested for the removal of lead from aqueous solutions. ...
Removal of Lead (II) Ions from Wastewater Using Eggplant Peels
In this study, three methods have been tested for the production of eggplant peel activated charcoal (EPPAC) from eggplant peel charcoal (EPPC). A new method has also been devised which does not include continuous involvement ...
Formation of Bromate in Pet Bottle Water
High bromate levels in bottle water is a concern in UAE. In this study, bromate formation in bottles of drinking water was studied while exposed to various temperatures, storage times and pH levels. Three brands, referred ...
