We reported in previous CleanTech conferneces about successful DUV LED application in POU (Point Of Use) disinfection systems; in this presentation we report on the performance results of a compact water disinfection system (WDS) that [...]
Waste water from electroplating industry is heavily loaded with the heavy metals and is a potential threat to environment and human health. In this study the potentiality of spent tea waste charcoal has been determined [...]
Y-type zeolite have high TMAH removal efficiency when pH>4 with solid-liquid ratio (S/L) of 2 g/L in 20 minutes. The correlation coefficients of Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm models are 0.973 and 0.997, respectively. The exponential [...]
Among the various introduced technologies for water desalination, capacitive deionization (CDI) is a very promising process. CDI (also called Electrosorption) attracted enormous attention as an energy-saving and environmentally friendly desalination technique, because it can be [...]
A 40 year membrane technology developer defines the process of nanofiltration, using the too-common misconceptions of what NF is and how it employed to clarify definitional problems and propose solutions. Insight relating to the problems [...]
We investigated the application of titania nanotubes arrays in the form of powders and membranes for water filtration and separation, and for employment in high-performance liquid chromatography. Such membranes have been successfully employed in photocatalytic [...]
UCLA professors have collaborated to develop a portfolio of IP around the synthesis of a new class of polymeric-ceramic nanostructures, coating films and membranes. As membranes, these novel materials exhibit microfiltration like productivity with nanofiltration-like [...]
In the context of reduction of toxic Cr (VI) in tannery effluents, an organic-inorganic hybrid materials were envisaged as new membrane materials of better properties and polysulfone membrane has been modified to form an PSf/TiO2 [...]
The presentation presents blend membranes of polyethersulfone containing Ag nanoparticles dispersed on N-doped carbon nanotubes (N-CNTs). The blend membranes were checked for any improved properties and tested for their efficacy in removing model pollutants from [...]
Carbon nano and alumina nano materials are two key constituents used for water purification. Each serves a different purpose in the water purification process. The carbon nano material treated with dilute acid removes the bacteria, [...]
Two artificial pilot scale wetlands of 384 l of volume with 60 cm of sand and gravel were evaluated for establish the behavior of Eichhornia crassipes in petroleum production wastewater treatment. One of the wetlands [...]
Research was carried out to investigate several aspects of Mobil’s composition of matter #41 (MCM-41) pertaining to its potential application in water treatment technologies. It was found that Pd-impregnated MCM-41 (Pd/MCM-41) has enhanced stability in [...]
Open channel flow measurement is important due to decreasing water supplies and growing concerns regarding municipal water measurement. These flows need to be metered to minimize the margin of error. The Parshall flume in some [...]
The Sustainability Stations is a project focused in solve Mexico City´s problem of lack of water and inundations. Both situations are related to the water extraction from the water table, being the principal source of [...]
The removal of contaminants in wastewater treatment process is challenging due to complex substances, time and cost involved thus, advance technologies in the treatment process are necessary. The present study investigates the potential of magnetic [...]
