Effect of Digestion Processes on Dewatering and Bound Water Content of Sludge
(Virginia Tech, 2005-02-04)
Solids handling can contribute to a significant portion of the operational costs of a wastewater treatment plant, contributing up to 50% of the total expenses in certain instances. Sludge dewatering and drying therefore ...
Anaerobic Digestion: Factors Effecting Odor Generation
(Virginia Tech, 2005-07-19)
Land application of anaerobically stabilized biosolids is a beneficial method of handling the solid residuals from a wastewater treatment plant. One of the main issues that restrict land application of biosolids is nuisance ...
Biochemical Lignin Related Processes in Landfills
(Virginia Tech, 2005-12-16)
<p>The objective of this study was to determine how the key features of bioreactor landfills; increased temperature, moisture and microbial activity, affect the biological stability of the landfill material. In the first ...
PERFORMANCE AND MECHANISMS OF EXCESS SLUDGE REDUCTION IN THE CANNIBALâ ¢ PROCESS
(Virginia Tech, 2005-03-30)
In order to study the performance and mechanisms of excess sludge reduction in the activated sludge that incorporates the Cannibalâ ¢ Process, laboratory activated sludge systems incorporating an anaerobic bioreactor into ...
The Feasibility of Bioaugmentation for the Remediation of Chlorinated Solvents: A Microcosm Study
(Virginia Tech, 2005-01-21)
Chlorinated solvents are among the most prevalent contaminants at Superfund sites. Perchloroethylene (PCE) and its degradative byproducts pose a particular problem because of their persistence in the subsurface and their ...
