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...
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...
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...
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...
The transport and deposition of biocolloidal particles in porous media is a crucial phenomenon in understanding environmental challenges from pathogen contamination to bioremediation of soil and water. The fate and transport of biocolloidal particles in porous media is influenced by many factors...
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...
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...
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....
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;...
