Scoping candidate minerals for stabilization of arsenic-bearing solid residuals.
Arsenic Crystallization Technology (ACT) is a potentially eco-friendly, effective technology for stabilization of arsenic-bearing solid residuals (ABSRs). The strategy is to convert ABSRs generated by water treatment facilities into minerals with a high arsenic capacity and long-term stability in ma...
Pharmaceuticals and personal care products in the aquatic environment in China: A review.
Pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) have been detected as contaminants of emerging concern ubiquitously in the aquatic environment in China and worldwide. A clear picture of PPCP contamination in the Chinese aquatic environment is needed to gain insight for both research and regulator...
Converting hazardous organics into clean energy using a solar responsive dual photoelectrode photocatalytic fuel cell.
Direct discharging great quantities of organics into water-body not only causes serious environmental pollution but also wastes energy sources. In this paper, a solar responsive dual photoelectrode photocatalytic fuel cell (PFC(2)) based on TiO2/Ti photoanode and Cu2O/Cu photocathode was designed fo...
Environmental aspects of photooxidative treatment of phenolic compounds.
We monitored the changes of total organic carbon (TOC); chemical oxygen demand (COD); aromaticity, measured as absorbance at 280 (A280) and 254nm (A254); biodegradability, estimated over ratio of biochemical and chemical oxygen demand (BOD5/COD); and toxicity, estimated on inhibition of Vibrio fisch...
Magnetically separable Fe3O4@SiO2@TiO2-Ag microspheres with well-designed nanostructure and enhanced photocatalytic activity.
Major efforts in modern material chemistry are devoted to the design and fabrication of nanostructured systems with tunable physical-chemical properties for advanced catalytic applications. Here, a novel Fe3O4@SiO2@TiO2-Ag nanocomposite has been synthesized and characterized by a series of technique...
A comparative adsorption study of C2H4 and SO2 on clinoptilolite-rich tuff: Effect of acid treatment.
In this study, ethylene (C2H4) and sulphur dioxide (SO2) adsorption properties of clinoptilolite tuff from Gördes, Turkey and that of acid treated forms were studied at 293K using volumetric apparatus up to 38 and 100kPa, respectively. In order to consider the effect of acid treatment on structural...
Chemodynamics of chromium reduction in soils: implications to bioavailability.
Chromium toxicity in soils can be mitigated by reduction of Cr(VI) to Cr(III) which is influenced by the presence of free Cr(VI) species in soil solution, and the supply of protons and electrons. In this study, the effects of Cr(VI) adsorption (i.e. availability of free Cr(VI) species in soil soluti...
Elucidating the mechanism of Cr(VI) formation upon the interaction with metal oxides during coal oxy-fuel combustion.
The thermodynamics underpinning the interaction of Cr-bearing species with basic metal oxides, i.e. K2O, Fe2O3, MgO and CaO, during the air and oxy-fuel combustion of coal have been examined. The synchrotron-based X-ray adsorption near-edge spectroscopy (XANES) was used for Cr speciation. For the ox...
Effects of simulated weathering on the toxicity of selected crude oils and their components to sea urchin embryos.
Artificial weathering of Angolan crude and a Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) was performed by evaporation and photooxidation. The aliphatic, aromatic, polar and asphaltene fractions of the fresh and weathered oils were isolated. The toxicity of the water accommodated fraction or an oil/fraction dissolved in DM...
Mycoremediation of wood and soil from an old sawmill area contaminated for decades.
We investigated the potential of white-rot and litter-decomposing fungi for the treatment of soil and wood from a sawmill area contaminated with aged chlorinated phenols, dibenzo-p-dioxins and furans (PCDD/F). Eight screening assays with emphasis on application of non-sterile conditions were carried...
