    • Assessment of Disinfection By-Product Formation in Polymeric Pipe Distribution Systems 

      Shabani, Sina (2013-06)
      In recent years, polymeric materials have become the dominant type of material used for drinking water pipe distribution systems. They have some advantages over other types of pipes such as cast iron, ductile iron, concrete, ...
    • Control and Optimization of Membrane Biological Reactor Processes 

      Abachi, Noor Ali (2011-01)
      Membrane biological reactor (MBR) is an emerging technology adopted for domestic and industrial wastewater treatment. The high selectivity of the semi permeable membrane to water results in membrane fouling. Fouling is a ...
    • Formation of Bromate in Pet Bottle Water 

      Sharif, Haifa (2014-01)
      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 ...
    • Green Inhibition of Mild Steel Corrosion in a CO2 Saturated Saline Solution 

      Gomes, Elron Edgar (2015-05)
      Mild steel is extensively used in equipment such as pipelines and machinery by many industries, where it is exposed to corrosive environments. Dissolved carbon dioxide (CO2) can be found in produced water and results in ...
    • Membrane Bioreactor-Desalination Microbial Fuel Cell Hybrid System 

      Mukhtar, Noora Hussein Adam (2018-04)
      The microbial desalination fuel cell (MDFC) is an emerging desalination technology offering great promise of high salinity removal with zero energy input. Moreover, the membrane bioreactor (MBR) is of great reliability in ...
    • Modeling Water Flux in Forward Osmosis: Implications for Improved Membrane Design 

      Al Mazrooei, Muna (2013-05)
      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 ...
    • Oil Removal From Produced Water Using Natural Materials 

      Gulistan, Abdul Sami (2014-06)
      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 ...
    • Phosphorus and Algae Removal via Adsorption 

      Ghadban, Ahmad A. (2012-01)
      Algal bloom, commonly known as Red Tide in coastal areas, has become one of the major problems facing desalination plants due to the high biomass concentration of microalgae associated with it. It causes operational problems ...
    • Production of Activated Carbon from Sewage Sludge for the Removal of Lead from Water 

      Rehman, Saeed Ur (2012-06)
      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 ...
    • Removal of Lead (II) Ions from Wastewater Using Eggplant Peels 

      Bin Babar, Zaeem (2013-01)
      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 ...
    • Treatment of produced water using graphene 

      Abou Chacra, Lamis (2016-01)
      Adsorption is a well-known method for high efficiency in treatment of water and wastewater at low costs. It is a promising method that can compete strongly with conventional purification methods. Carbon-based materials ...
