In this study, a two-step flocculation method by combining anionic and cationic polymeric flocculants on the treatment of oil sands tailings was investigated. Compared to conventional flocculation by using a single anionic or cationic polymer, which has been a widely exploited procedure for...
Treatment of Source Separated Greywater Using Microbial Electrolysis Cell and Granular Activated Carbon BiofilterDownload
Source-diverted greywater contributes to 60-70 % of conventional wastewater in volume and has a low organic matter concentration as compared to conventional wastewater. Greywater constitutes a high concentration of surfactants that are toxic in nature for the microbial community, which poses a...
This study examines the effects of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PAO1) biofilm, with a concentration of cells similar to that reported for saturated aquifers, on the transport of poly(acrylic acid) stabilized nanoscale zero valent iron (pnZVI) in 14 cm long, saturated, laboratory packed columns, with...
The Occurrence of Residual Biological and Chemical Hazards in Recovered Struvite from BlackwaterDownload
Phosphorus is an essential element in several industries such as agriculture and a requirement for growth. Dwindling phosphate rock sources thus requires the security of new phosphorus sources to maintain future populations. On the other hand, wastewater contains a considerable amount of...
The Influence of EPS Conditioning Films on Pseudomonas aeruginosa Adhesion to Solid SurfacesDownload
Bacterial adhesion to inert surfaces in aquatic environments is highly dependent on the surface properties of the substratum, which could be altered significantly by the formation of conditioning films. The impacts of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) and its several representative...
Municipal stormwater retention ponds are a means of managing stormwater in urban settings. Due to the temporal and spatial variations involved with stormwater, numerous contaminants find their way in stormwater retention pond, creating various problems to mitigate against. The City of Edmonton...
Storm water ponds have been widely constructed over the past four decades as part of municipal storm water drainage systems. These ponds are designed to collect neighborhood storm water run-off to reduce flooding, but can also improve the quality of water discharged to surface water bodies by...
Partial Nitrification Processes for Ammonium Rich Sludge Thickening Lagoon Supernatant TreatmentDownload
In wastewater treatment, nitrogen removal is becoming increasingly challenging to meet the more stringent standards and regulations. At local wastewater treatment plant, nitrogen removal is challenging when the plant was experiencing shock loadings. Thus, improving the nitrogen removal is...
Many municipalities in Canada and all over the world use chloramination for drinking water secondary disinfection to avoid DBPs formation from conventional chlorination. However, the long-lasting monochloramine (NH2Cl) disinfectant can pose a significant risk to aquatic life through its...
Life Cycle Assessment of a Community-Based Wastewater Treatment and Resource Recovery System: Sewage Heat Recovery and MBR for Water ReuseDownload
Municipal sewage contains significant embedded resources in the form of chemical and thermal energy. Recent developments in sustainable technology has pushed for the integration of resource recovery from household wastewater to achieve net zero energy consumption and carbon neutral communities....
