Consequential Environmental and Economic Life Cycle Assessment of Green and Gray Stormwater Infrastructures for Combined Sewer Systems

11-09-2013 | Ranran Wang; Matthew J. Eckelman; Julie B. Zimmerman, Environmental Science & Technology, 2013

A consequential life cycle assessment (LCA) is conducted to evaluate the trade-offs between water quality improvements and the incremental climate, resource, and economic costs of implementing green (bioretention basin, green roof, and permeable pavement) versus gray (municipal separate ...


Stimulation of Hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) Biodegradation in a Full Scale In Situ Bioscreen

11-09-2013 | Alette A. M. Langenhoff; Sjef J. M. Staps; Charles Pijls; Huub H. M. Rijnaarts, Environmental Science & Technology, 2013

The feasibility of a bioscreen for the in situ biodegradation of HCH and its intermediates is demonstrated at a contaminated site in The Netherlands, via the discontinuous addition of methanol as electron donor. An infiltration system was installed and operated at the site over a length of 150 m ...


Effects of drying and storage on year‐round production of butanol and biodiesel from algal carbohydrates and lipids using algae from water remediation

10-09-2013 | Alice Jernigan, Michael May, Thomas Potts, Brigitte Rodgers, Jamie Hestekin, Peter I. May, John McLaughlin, Robert R ..., Environmental Progress, 2013

Algae harvested from a pilot water quality improvement technology at the Rockaway Wastewater Treatment Facility in New York were examined as a source of carbohydrates and lipids for the production of biofuels. Dried stocks of algae harvested during a 6‐month period were used to feed the ...


Effects Of Parameters On Kmno4‐Assisted Ultrasound In 17β‐Estradiol Degradation In An Aqueous System

05-09-2013 | Ma Xiao‐yan, Tang Kai, Li Qing‐song, Song Ya‐li, Ni Yong‐jiong, Gao Nai‐yun, Journal of Chemical Technology & Biotechnology, 2013

Abstract Background As the strongest natural estrogen, 17β‐estradiol (E2) which emerges in water through drainage of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants, may represent seriously healthy risks on human, even at extremely low concentration of ng L‐1. To reduce the amount of E2 ...


Advances in the development and application of ferrate (VI) for water and wastewater treatment

04-09-2013 | Jia‐Qian Jiang, Journal of Chemical Technology & Biotechnology, 2013

Abstract The ferrate (VI) ion has the formula FeO42‐, and possesses unique properties, vs. strong oxidising potential and simultaneous generation of ferric coagulating species. Due to this, a number of studies have been carried out to investigate the preparation, characterisation and ...


A Natural Driven Membrane Process for Brackish and Wastewater Treatment: Photovoltaic Powered ED and FO Hybrid System

04-09-2013 | Yang Zhang; Luc Pinoy; Boudewijn Meesschaert; Bart Van der Bruggen, Environmental Science & Technology, 2013

In isolated locations, remote areas, or islands, potable water is precious because of the lack of drinking water treatment facilities and energy supply. Thus, a robust and reliable water treatment system based on natural energy is needed to reuse wastewater or to desalinate groundwater/seawater ...


A perspective on algae, the environment, and energy

02-09-2013 | Phillip E. Savage, Jamie A. Hestekin, Environmental Progress, 2013

Aquatic biomass, in general, and algae, in particular, are gaining attention for wastewater treatment and as a feedstock for renewable fuels. Research into algae biofuels is receiving significant attention because of the potential for providing high amounts of fuel with low land use. Several ...


Field-Based Approach for Assessing the Impact of Treated Pulp and Paper Mill Effluent on Endogenous Metabolites of Fathead Minnows (Pimephales promelas)

30-08-2013 | J. M. Davis; T. W. Collette; D. L. Villeneuve; J. E. Cavallin; Q. Teng; K. M. Jensen; M. D. Kahl; J. M. Mayasich; G. ..., Environmental Science & Technology, 2013

A field-based metabolomic study was conducted during a shutdown of a pulp and paper mill (PPM) to assess the impacts of treated PPM effluent on endogenous polar metabolites in fathead minnow (FHM; Pimephales promelas) livers. Caged male and female FHMs were deployed at a Great Lakes area of ...


First Report of a Chinese PFOS Alternative Overlooked for 30 Years: Its Toxicity, Persistence, and Presence in the Environment

29-08-2013 | Siwen Wang; Jun Huang; Yang Yang; Yamei Hui; Yuxi Ge; Thorjørn Larssen; Gang Yu; Shubo Deng; Bin Wang; Christopher H ..., Environmental Science & Technology, 2013

This is the first report on the environmental occurrence of a chlorinated polyfluorinated ether sulfonate (locally called F-53B, C8ClF16O4SK). It has been widely applied as a mist suppressant by the chrome plating industry in China for decades but has evaded the attention of environmental ...


Cathodic catalysts in bioelectrochemical systems for energy recovery from wastewater

28-08-2013 | Xian-Wei Liu; Wen-Wei Li; Han-Qing Yu, Chemical Society Reviews, 2013

Bioelectrochemical systems (BESs), in which microorganisms are utilized as a self-regenerable catalyst at the anode of an electrochemical cell to directly extract electrical energy from organic matter, have been widely recognized as a promising technology for energy-efficient wastewater treatment ...
