Community Structure and Microbial Activity of Sulfate Reducing Bacteria in Wastewater Biofilms and Mature Fine Tailings Analyzed by Microsensors and Molecular Biology TechniquesDownload
Sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) play a significant role in complex microbial environments such as wastewater biofilms and mature fine tailings (MFT). A unique characteristic of these complex microbial environments is that stratified structure containing both oxic and anoxic zones could be formed;...
Fat, oil, and grease (FOG) in wastewater can cause foul odor, sewer line blockage, and may interfere with sewage treatment. FOG control is approached with physical, chemical, and biological methods Many cities, including Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, have effectively applied commercial biological...
Cryptosporidium, a waterborne protozoan pathogen that can cause gastrointestinal illness, is often found in surface waters that are used to supply drinking water. Filtration is a major barrier against Cryptosporidium in drinking water treatment processes. However, interactions between oocysts and...
The impact of cranberry juice was investigated with respect to the initial adhesion of three isogenic Burkholderia cepacia bacteria with different extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) producing capacities: a wild-type cepacian EPS producer PC184, mutant bacteria PC184rml with reduced EPS...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
