Misfolded prions (PrPSc) are well known for their resistance to conventional decontamination processes. The potential risk of contamination of the water environment, as a result of the disposal of specified risk materials (SRM), has raised public concerns. Ozone is commonly utilized in the water...
The oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) generated from bitumen extraction of oil sands by industries in Northern Alberta, Canada, is a great environmental concern because of the OSPW toxicity in the environment. This toxicity has been attributed to a group of alicyclic and aliphatic compounds...
Application of Anoxic-Aerobic Membrane Bioreactors (MBRs) for Oil Sands Process-Affected Water (OSPW) TreatmentDownload
The enormous volumes of oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) produced during oil sands bitumen extraction have been a public concern due to the toxicity and persistence of the organic contaminants contained in the water. Among all the contaminants in OSPW, naphthenic acids (NAs) are regarded...
Application of Ozone and Peroxone Processes for Naphthenic Acids Degradation in Oil Sands Process-Affected Water: Characterization of Water Before and After TreatmentDownload
Appling ozone (O3) with high doses (>100 mg/L) to remove naphthenic acids (NAs) from oil sands process-affected water (OSPW); limits its application and feasibility in the OSPW remediation. To decrease the required doses and their associated costs, this study examined the application of ozone...
Novel Plasma Based Technology for Treatment of Emerging Contaminants in Water: Understanding Physiochemical Processes and ApplicationsDownload
Indiscriminate and widespread disposal of pharmaceutical compounds, dye molecules, and pesticides in to water resources pose a serious threat to the quality of drinking water. A critical need exists for developing novel practical, efficient, and cost effective water treatments for remediation of...
