Laboratory evaluation of conditioning requirements for sludge dewatering using belt filter press
(Virginia Tech, 1990-12-06)
Chemical and Biological Treatment of Acid Mine Drainage for the Removal of Heavy Metals and Acidity
(Virginia Tech, 1997-08-11)
This dissertation reports the design of a process (patent pending) to remove iron from acid mine drainage (AMD) without the formation of metal hydroxide sludge. The system includes the oxidation of ferrous iron in a ...
The roles and interactions of cations, proteins, and polysaccharides in the settling and dewatering of activated sludge
(Virginia Tech, 1995-08-05)
The roles of cations and exocellular biopolymer on the settling and dewatering of activated sludge was investigated. Both laboratory and full-scale activated sludge systems were examined. The results of the study showed ...
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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
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, ...
Sorption of pentachlorophenol to humic acids and subsequent effects on biodegradation and solvent extraction
(Virginia Tech, 1992-06-05)
Factors affecting binding of chlorophenols to soil
(Virginia Tech, 1995-07-06)
Synthetic substituted phenols can become incorporated into soil organic matter by processes similar to natural humification. Biological, (enzyme-catalyzed), and abiotic, (mineral surface catalyzed), reactions have been ...
Enhanced petroleum-contaminated soil bioremediation by plants
(Virginia Tech, 1995-07-16)
<p>A petroleum-contaminated soil remediation study was conducted in a greenhouse. The system consisted of 36 pots, 12 were vegetated with squash, 12 were vegetated with fescue grass and the last 12 units served as unvegetated ...
