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 ...
Spent Caustic Treatment Using Advanced Oxidation Processes
Mixed refinery spent caustic is an industrial wastewater that is generated from oil refineries. Spent caustic undergo two treatment steps, chemical oxidation followed by biological post treatment step. The goal of chemical ...
Control and Optimization of Membrane Biological Reactor Processes
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 ...
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. ...
Model Development, Application and Optimization of Chlorination Breakpoint in Wastewater Treatment
Chlorination in wastewater treatment is regarded as a complicated process due to its ammonia and nitrite content. Chlorine added to such systems reacts with ammonia undergoing episodes of complex reactions, resulting in ...
