Sorption and biodegradation of phenanthrene in soils
(Virginia Tech, 1994-05-05)
<p>Soils and groundwaters face an influx of contaminants, many of which are known to be hazardous to the public's health. Several remediation technologies have been developed to clean-up contaminated soils, but additional ...
Laboratory evaluation of conditioning requirements for sludge dewatering using belt filter press
(Virginia Tech, 1990-12-06)
Fate and Transport of Endocrine Disrupting Compounds during Wastewater Treatment: The Role of Colloidal and Particulate Material
(Virginia Tech, 2003-07-22)
The presence of biologically-active estrogenic endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) in treated effluents from biological wastewater treatment facilities has prompted wide-spread interest in the behavior of these contaminants ...
Extracellular Polymeric Substances in Activated Sludge Flocs: Extraction, Identification, and Investigation of Their Link with Cations and Fate in Sludge Digestion
(Virginia Tech, 2007-08-01)
<p> Extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) in activated sludge are known to account for the flocculent nature of activated sludge. Extensive studies over the last few decades have attempted to extract and characterize ...
Bioflocculation: Implications for Activated Sludge Properties and Wastewater Treatment
(Virginia Tech, 1998-07-23)
Studies were conducted to determine the role of bioflocculation in the activated sludge unit processes. Laboratory and full-scale studies revealed that bioflocculation is important in determining settling, dewatering, ...
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Redox Parameters in a Creosote-Contaminated Aquifer
(Virginia Tech, 2001-02-05)
A groundwater monitoring study was conducted as part of a comprehensive program to remediate a former wood-preserving site that was contaminated with creosote. Twenty-five multi-level samplers (MLSs) were installed on-site ...
The effects of ozone treatment on chemical parameters of a recirculating aquaculture system producing hybrid striped bass
(Virginia Tech, 1994-08-05)
The hypothesis tested in this study is that the application of ozone to reuse aquaculture water provides more favorable conditions for hybrid striped bass at production levels. Evaluation of water quality in fish culture ...
Reversible and irreversible adsorption of naphthalene and α-naphthol to soil
(Virginia Tech, 1995-05-03)
Experiments were performed with naphthalene and a-naphthol to compare the processes involved in the sorption of a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) and its metabolite, respectively, and to assess the bioavailability ...
Removal of trace elements from coal using a multiple-property processing circuit
(Virginia Tech, 1994-07-15)
<p>The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is conducting a three-year study of toxic air emissions specific to coal fired utilities to assess the potential health risks of trace elements released during coal combustion. ...
Shear Forces, Floc Structure and their Impact on Anaerobic Digestion and Biosolids Stability
(Virginia Tech, 2006-07-20)
<p> This study was conducted to address the controlling factors of biosolids stability as they relate to mesophilic anaerobic digestion, dewatering processes and digestion enhancement by wet sludge disintegration technologies. ...
