In‐Situ Production of Hydrogen Peroxide in a Microbial Fuel Cell for Recalcitrant Wastewater Treatment

09-Jan-2017 | Anam Asghar, Abdul Aziz Abdul Raman, Wan Mohd Ashri Wan Daud, Journal of Chemical Technology & Biotechnology, 2017

Abstract Background Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) offer a sustainable and energy efficient solution for in‐situ hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) production with simultaneous power generation. In MFCs, H2O2 is produced as a result of two‐electron oxygen reduction at graphite cathode surface. However, ...


IJMS, Vol. 18, Pages 114: Chitin Adsorbents for Toxic Metals: A Review

07-Jan-2017 | Anastopoulos, Ioannis ; Bhatnagar, Amit ; Bikiaris, Dimitrios N.; Kyzas, George Z., International Journal of Molecular Sciences, 2017

Wastewater treatment is still a critical issue all over the world. Among examined methods for the decontamination of wastewaters, adsorption is a promising, cheap, environmentally friendly and efficient procedure. There are various types of adsorbents that have been used to remove different ...


Nanomaterial processing strategies in functional hybrid materials for wastewater treatment using algal biomass

06-Jan-2017 | Ela Eroglu, Colin L. Raston, Journal of Chemical Technology & Biotechnology, 2017

Abstract Algal cultivation has tremendous potential in wastewater treatment, and its simultaneous biomass production has advantages for the production of value added products such as biodiesel, fertilizers and pharmaceuticals. Some obstacles for obtaining a productive biological water ...


In Silico Identification of Bioremediation Potential: Carbamazepine and Other Recalcitrant Personal Care Products

27-Dec-2016 | Kelly G. Aukema; Diego E. Escalante; Meghan M. Maltby; Asim K. Bera; Alptekin Aksan; Lawrence P. Wackett, Environmental Science & Technology, 2016

Emerging contaminants are principally personal care products not readily removed by conventional wastewater treatment and, with an increasing reliance on water recycling, become disseminated in drinking water supplies. Carbamazepine, a widely used neuroactive pharmaceutical, increasingly escapes ...


Square wave voltammetry restructuring of platinum nanoparticle at boron doped diamond electrode for enhanced ammonia oxidation

25-Dec-2016 | Author(s): Yaritza Hernández-Lebrón, Carlos R. Cabrera, Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry, 2016

Publication date: Available online 23 December 2016 Source:Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry Author(s): Yaritza Hernández-Lebrón, Carlos R. Cabrera The ammonia oxidation reaction has been a topic of interest due to its possible use as a fuel in alkaline fuel cell systems. This may ...


IJMS, Vol. 18, Pages 25: Metal-Free Carbon-Based Materials: Promising Electrocatalysts for Oxygen Reduction Reaction in Microbial Fuel Cells

24-Dec-2016 | Sawant, Sandesh Y.; Han, Thi Hiep; Cho, Moo Hwan, International Journal of Molecular Sciences, 2016

Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are a promising green approach for wastewater treatment with the simultaneous advantage of energy production. Among the various limiting factors, the cathodic limitation, with respect to performance and cost, is one of the main obstacles to the practical applications ...


Sustainability, Vol. 9, Pages 8: Application of Emergy Analysis to the Sustainability Evaluation of Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants

24-Dec-2016 | Shao, Shuai ; Mu, Hailin ; Yang, Fenglin ; Zhang, Yun ; Li, Jinhua, Sustainability, 2016

Municipal wastewater treatment plants consume much energy and manpower, are expensive to run, and generate sludge and treated wastewater whilst removing pollutants through specific treatment regimes. The sustainable development of the wastewater treatment industry is therefore challenging, and a ...


Synthetic Saccharomyces cerevisiae‐Shewanella oneidensis consortium enables glucose‐fed high‐performance microbial fuel cell

23-Dec-2016 | Tong Lin, Xue Bai, Yidan Hu, Bingzhi Li, Ying‐Jin Yuan, Hao Song, Yun Yang, Jingyu Wang, AIChE Journal, 2016

Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) were green and sustainable bio‐electrochemical reactors for simultaneous wastewater treatment and electricity harvest from organic wastes. However, exoelectrogens, such as Shewanella and Geobacter being widely studied in MFCs, could only use a limited spectrum of ...


Net-Zero-Energy Model for Sustainable Wastewater Treatment

23-Dec-2016 | Peng Yan; Rong-cong Qin; Jin-song Guo; Qiang Yu; Zhe Li; You-peng Chen; Yu Shen; Fang Fang, Environmental Science & Technology, 2016

A large external energy input prevents wastewater treatment from being environmentally sustainable. A net-zero-energy (NZE) wastewater treatment concept based on biomass energy recycling was proposed to avoid wasting resources and to promote energy recycling in wastewater treatment plants ...


Microplastics in Sewage Sludge: Effects of Treatment

23-Dec-2016 | A.M. Mahon; B. O’Connell; M.G. Healy; I. O’Connor; R. Officer; R. Nash; L. Morrison, Environmental Science & Technology, 2016

Waste water treatment plants (WWTPs) are receptors for the cumulative loading of microplastics (MPs) derived from industry, landfill, domestic wastewater and stormwater. The partitioning of MPs through the settlement processes of wastewater treatment results in the majority becoming entrained in ...
