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...
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...
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...
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...
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;...
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...
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 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...
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...
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....
