Removal of persistent organic pollutants from textile wastewater by membrane processes
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 6Nr. 3
AbstractThe textile industry is a large water consumer. Stringent regulations of wastewater characteristics require the use of membrane processes for the removal of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) from textile wastewater prior to discharge or recycling of these effluents.This paper presents an overview of research related to the removal of persistent organic pollutants from textile industry by membrane processes, discussing also the correlations with actual pre-treatment and removal rates. ...

Electrochemical investigations on the behaviour of Ni-Cr based dental materials in the sodium chloride - oxalic acid - lactic acid system
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 6Nr. 3
AbstractThe corrosion behaviour of three commercial nickel-chromium based dental materials was investigated by electrochemical methods in a corroding mixture of sodium chloride, oxalic acid and lactic acid. In order to establish electrochemical parameters of the corrosion process, linear and cyclic polarization curves were plotted. The samples performances in the corroding system were investigated by weight loss, pH and electrical conductivity measurements. The quantitative analysis related with...

Quantification of lead pollution in bucharest area and potential risks for human health
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 6Nr. 5
AbstractLead is unique among the toxic air contaminants that the World Health Organization (WHO) has identified it in several ways. Lead concentration is increasing rapidly in the environment due to increased use in anthropic activity. Lead is released into the atmosphere from metallurgy and siderurgy industry, during coal burning, oil or wastes, from power plants which use solid fuel, from traffic and the building sites. Regardless the exposure mode, the presence of lead in urban air, even in r...

Enhanced heavy metal adsorption on dye-modified fly ash
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 8Nr. 4
Abstract The use of fly ash (FA) in wastewater treatment received a lot of attention for the immobilization of heavy metal cations, mainly Cd2+, Pb2+, Ni2+, Zn2+, Cu2+. For an up-scalable wastewater treatment process, the substrate must have good adsorption efficiency and relatively constant behaviour. Modifying the fly ash surface can be a solution for reaching both goals. The use of FA for heavy metals removal, from wastewaters resulted in the dye finishing industry, faces a supplementary p...

Abstract:Films of CuxS with 430-700 nm thickness were deposited by robotic spray pyrolysis technique, at T = 300Â?C, using 90 sprayingsequences, from water:ethanol:glycerol = 7:2:1 (in volumes) solutions with a molar ratio Cu:S = 1:2.5-3.5. Relative dense,homogenous and uniform films of CuxS (x = 1.8-2), with Eg = 1.97-2.49 eV and exhibiting electric resistance behavior wereobtained. The as-deposited films were annealed in air or in sulfur atmosphere, at 300 Â?C, for one hour. Dense and uniform ...

REMOVAL OF METHYL ORANGE AND METHYLENE BLUE DYES FROM WASTEWATER USING SAWDUST AND SAWDUST-FLY ASH AS SORBENTS
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 10Nr. 9
Abstract:Methyl orange and methylen blue are two dyes resulted from the textile industry. They are not raising just esthetical problems, butthey are toxic and hence harmful to aquatic animals. The aim of this study is to test the capacity of three types of sawdust (oak,willow and white poplar) and mixed substrates, sawdust: fly ash (FA), to remove the methyl orange (MO) and methylen blue(MB) from wastewater. The influence of contact time, solution pH and initial concentration of dyes on the blea...

AbstractThe dominant litter samples Pinus sylvestris L. needle litter and Acer platanoides L. leaf litter were collected in the coniferousmixed forest located at 54º43‘ N 25º19‘ E (Vilnius, Lithuania) in April 2010. Different heating temperatures (150, 250, 350, 450and 550ºC) and 2 hour heating duration were used to produce ashes. The selected heating temperatures affected mass loss, colour, pH, electrical conductivity (EC), C/N ratio, nutrient concentrations of the ash. The darkness of Munsell ...

PYROLYSIS OF WASTE ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT (WEEE) FOR RECOVERING METALS AND ENERGY: PREVIOUS ACHIEVEMENTS AND CURRENT APPROACHES
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 14Nr. 7
Abstract The amount of collected Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in Europe is growing about 7 wt.-% per year (2007- 2012). It contains a number of economically relevant base, precious and high-tech metals. However, only a limited number of these metals can be recovered by currently applied recycling processes. Especially high-tech metals like gallium, germanium and tantalum get lost during the treatment of WEEE. The pyrolysis technology allows an accumulation of these metals...

WASTE MANAGEMENT IN CIVIL ENGINEERING: A DYNAMIC FRAMEWORK
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 14Nr. 8
Abstract The recycling and later use of construction and demolition waste (C&D waste) as construction materials present a strategic inconvenience for many stakeholders involved in the sustainable construction. In some countries, the recycling percentage of C&D waste is around 80% of the C&D generated. However, in other countries this percentage is much lower. This complexity requires a better understanding of the recycling dynamic. In the specific case of Spain, the National Inte...

EXTRACTION OF BIOCHEMICALS FROM THE WINE INDUSTRY BY-PRODUCTS AND THEIR VALORIZATION
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 15Nr. 9
The production process of wine and distilled generates several by-products (20-30% of total production). Currently, most of the solid by-products (pomace, stalks, lees and seeds) obtained as downstream of the vinery industry, are conferred to the distillery or, less frequently, used in agriculture and for energy production. As a consequence, much of the antioxidant compounds contained in the grape is unused in the products of processing and is lost. These substances (among which the most impo...
