Resource recovery strategies for municipal water planning and management: a system dynamics modeling approachDownload
The true value of water has not yet been captured in municipal water planning and management, despite the increasing availability of technologies designed to create value from wastewater. Adapting system processes for water reclamation, energy generation, and production of other outputs (such as...
Cellulose Nanocrystals (CNCs) Nanocomposite Films for Sustained Release of CNCs and Enhanced Anti-biofouling PropertyDownload
Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are nanoparticles with high aspect ratios and excellent surface tunability and are processed from renewable bioresource. CNCs possess unique surface and colloidal properties which makes it an efficient depletion inducer for flocculating colloidal sized bacteria from...
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...
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....
Ammonium-N and phosphate-P-rich anaerobic digester sludge liquor recovered during sewage sludge dewatering contributes more than 30% of the total nitrogen loading when returned to the municipal wastewater plant. Hence, side stream treatment could offer an economic alternative given its relatively...
The demand for fresh water is steadily increasing as a result of the increasing human populations and activities. On the other hand, water sources are limited, especially as the global warming continues to change the quantities and distribution of water all over the world. Therefore, focusing the...
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...
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...
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...
