Laboratory evaluation of conditioning requirements for sludge dewatering using belt filter press
(Virginia Tech, 1990-12-06)
Sorption of pentachlorophenol to humic acids and subsequent effects on biodegradation and solvent extraction
(Virginia Tech, 1992-06-05)
A Scrolling Geotextile Fabric Filter Device for Primary Clarification
(Virginia Tech, 2002-09-17)
This study investigated the feasibility of using a portable geotextile fabric based filtering device to remove suspended solids from raw sewage. This device was considered to replace a conventional primary clarifier. The ...
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 ...
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. ...
Effect of Reactor Feeding Pattern on Performance of an Activated Sludge SBR
(Virginia Tech, 2006-09-19)
<p> The possible effects of changes in the feeding pattern on activated sludge properties related to bioflocculation have been analyzed in lab scale sequencing batch reactors (SBR) in order to determine if these changes ...
Assessment of Intrinsic Bioremediation at a PCE Contaminated Site
(Virginia Tech, 2000-08-18)
Groundwater parameter analysis, microcosm experiments, and microcosms modeling were undertaken to assess the potential of Monitored Natural Attenuation as a remediation strategy at Site 12 at the Naval Amphibious Base (NAB) ...
Developing a Mechanistic Understanding and Optimization of the Cannibal Process: Phase II
(Virginia Tech, 2006-08-29)
The Cannibal system, comprised of an activated sludge process integrated with a side stream anaerobic bioreactor, is capable of reducing excess sludge up to 60% compared to the conventional activated sludge process. The ...
Factors Affecting Mobility of Copper in Soil-Water Matrices
(Virginia Tech, 2001-02-02)
Copper is applied to many crops as a fungicide/bactericide, including plasticulture tomato growing operations. Field tests have shown that copper is sometimes found in ground water near these fields. Therefore, a laboratory ...
