Use of Expert Systems in Selecting Equilibrium Isotherms of Organic Compound Adsorption on Activated Carbon
An outline of an Expert System (ES) that aids in selecting adsorption isotherms is presented. Such an ES provides an efficient technique for screening the present literature. The ES helps...

Multimedia Based System for Analyzing Production Organizations
Construction operations involve many complex operations and relationships. This paper deals with data gathering for productivity improvement-studies, process modelling and simulation of...

Application of the Phase Change Process to One-Dimensinal Consolidation Behavior of Peat
In this study, based on the fact that the pore of fibrous peat consists of the macro (outer) pore between organic matters and the micro (inner) pore inside organic matter, an approximate...

Settlement of Peats and Organic Soils
New advances in investigation of settlement of peats and organic soils and issues related to construction over such soft ground are presented. Peats and organic soils are well known for...

The Effects of NOM and Coagulation on Copper Corrosion
Copper corrosion was examined in solutions containing natural organic matter (NOM) and in situations where NOM was removed by enhanced coagulation with alum or ferric chloride. Electrochemical...

The Relationship of Speciation to Iron and Manganese Removal Strategies
Case studies are presented describing how Fe and Mn speciation procedures were used to solve process problems at two water utilities. A series of filtration steps are used to separate...

Evaluation of Fe oxide-coated GAC for removal and recovery of Cu(II) from water
A composite solid, prepared by precipitating an Fe oxide onto granular activated carbon (GAC), was evaluated as an adsorbent for the removal and recovery of Cu(II) from water. Relative...

Heavy Metal Removal Using Peat/Wetland Treatment
The purpose of this paper is to present an overview of the mechanisms and application of a peat/wetland treatment system for heavy metal removal from wastewater. The mechanisms involved...

Biofilm Sorption of Natural Organic Material
The biosorption of non-ozonated and ozonated natural organic matter (NOM) onto a dense biofilm was investigated at the University of Colorado Environmental Engineering laboratories. Bench-scale...

Evaluation of Enhanced Coagulation for DBP Control
The paper presents a pilot scale study conducted to examine the control of Disinfection By-Product (DBP) precursors by conventional and enhanced coagulation. The objectives of the study...

Control of Odor and VOC Emissions at Wastewater Treatment Plants -Boston Harbor Case Study-
Siting of the new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) for the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) in Boston was based on an assumption of mitigation of total reduced sulfur (TRS)...

In Situ Treatment of VOCs by Recirculation Technologies
Confronted with contaminated land from the world wars and the postwar industrialization period, German researchers and practicing professionals have worked to develop processes for effective...

Emissions, Ambient Concentrations, and Potential Health Hazards of VOCs from Wastewater Treatment
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are yielded from wastewater treatment. The potential environmental and health hazards imposed by VOCs has only been recently determined. VOC emissions...

Destruction of Gas Phase TCE Using a Plasma Reactor

Anaerobic Biodegradation of Chloroform under Methanogenic Conditions
The degradation of chloroform is studied for two different methanogenic cultures grown on acetate and methanol exclusively, as the primary substrates. In chemostats, chloroform was fed...

Computer Aided Design of Trickling Filters

Innovative Treatment of Soil Contamination: Radiolytic Destruction of Dioxin and Co-Contaminants by Cobalt-60
Recent work in our laboratory has demonstrated that gamma radiolysis is a feasible method by which 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) can be converted to products of negligible...

The Use of Iron Salts to Control Dissolved Sulfide in Districts' Trunk Sewers
Headspace H2S removal via the precipitation of dissolved sulfide was investigated using iron chlorides. Full-scale experiments were conducted in...

Activated Carbon as a Catalyst for Polymerization of Phenolic Compounds
Previous studies by the principal investigator showed that the increase in the adsorptive capacity of activated carbon for phenolic compounds can be attributed to polymerization (oxidative...
