Constructed wetlands are of two basic types: subsurface-flow and surface-flow wetlands [15]. Use of carbon quantum dots (CQDs) for photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants. (2006) [26] reported that ozonation alone improved the removal of succinic acid up to 65% at pH 7 with an initial concentration of 339 mM. A rotating biological contactor (RBC) containing P. chrysosporium immobilized on polyurethane foam (PUF) disks was operated with optimized decolourization medium, in continuous mode with a retention time of 3 days. However, the problems of this reactor, such as sludge expansion, rising sludge and foam, are important factors which confines the development of this technique. Two classic aerobic biodegradation reactors, oxidation ditch and constructed wetland are introduced. The viability of the AMBR treating high-concentration food wastewater depended upon feedwater organic concentration, loading rate, HRT, SRT, hydraulic shearing effect and membrane properties. The phenol in the wastewater mainly comes from the coking plant, refining, insulation material manufacturing, paper making and phenolic chemical plant. The following recommendations are those being used at the present time. The COD removal for 2.0 h reaction time increased from 25.7% without catalyst to 33.2% with 0.25 kg/m3 catalyst. Publication Date 2018, 362 Pages The mean Cr(VI) outlet concentration was 1.6±0.9 g/l and complied with the Italian legal limits for water reuse [51]. The HRT kept at 60 h, SRT was designed for 50 days. That a variety of technologies such as biological treatment, chemical oxidation technologies, adsorption technology and the others were introduced. WAO is based on the oxidizing properties of air’s oxygen. Upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor and anaerobic filter reactor are selected as the representative of the two kinds of reactors mentioned above. The extraction method is widely used in a variety of organic waste, such as phenol, organic carboxylation acids, organic phosphorus nitrogen, organic sulfonic acid, organic amine, etc. Physical (such as adsorption, air flotation), chemical (flocculation) and biological methods (aerobic biodegradation, activated sludge reactor, sequencing batch reactor, oxidation pond) could be used to remove the pollutants. Licensee IntechOpen. Activated sludge treatment methods have been widely used to treat industrial wastewater. The process has been shown to be applicable for the separation of the organic contaminants in paint wastes, synthetic rubber process wastes, coal tar wastes, drilling muds, wood-treating wastes, separation sludges, pesticide/insecticide wastes, and petroleum refinery oily wastes. The traditional two-stage biochemical treatment has relativity low cost, but the effluent could hardly meet the discharge standard of China owing to its high COD and chroma. Reported COD removal efficiencies range from 45% to 85%, and reported final BOD5/COD ratio can be increased from less than 0.10 initially to values ranging from 0.14 to more than 0.60, depending on leachate characteristic and dosages of Fenton reagents. 2 [11]. Almost all the COD was removed by the TPAD-MBR system, leaving a COD of around 40mg/L in the MBR effluent, at respective HRTs of 12, 55 and 5 h. The pH of the MBR effluent was found in a narrow range of 6.8-7.6, indicating that the MBR effluent can be directly discharged into natural waters. Fenton process can significantly remove recalcitrant and toxic organic compounds, and increase the biodegradability of organic compounds. Food wastewater is composited of natural organic matters (such as protein, fat, sugar, starch), so they are of low toxicity and high BOD/COD value (up to 0.84). The adsorption potential of this biomass for adsorbing phenol from aqueous solution was found to be depended on the pH, contact time and the initial phenol concentration. 34-42 DOI 10.5755/j01.erem.75.1.21532 Removal of Organic Pollutants from Tofu-Processing Wastewater through Anaerobic Treatment … They have been proved to be efficient in various pollutant degradation processes, along with reduction of costs and improvement of the safety conditions of the working environment. The organic pollutants with simple structures and good hydrophilicity are easy to be degraded in the environment. Biodegradation is a process using microorganisms, fungi, green plants and their enzymes to remove the pollutants from natural environment or transform them harmless. There are two basic types of water filters: particulate filters and adsorptive/reactive filters. In wastewater systems containing heavy metals with other organic pollutants, the presence of one species usually impedes the removal of the other. Fenton reaction gives rise to CO2 and the heteroatoms also form the corresponding oxygenated species such as NOx, SOx and POx, meaning that the carbons and heteroatoms of the organic substrate are converted to inorganic species. The investigation was carried out for 91 days of column operation and the treatment of pyridine, quinoline, total organic carbon (TOC), and ammonium was shown to be highly efficient by bioaugmentation and adsorption. During coking, coal decomposes into gases, liquid and solid organic compounds. Upgrading wastewater treatment systems is often … Membrane filtration processes for the removal of organics from industrial wastewater. Fluidized bed incinerators are steel cylinders lined with refractory bricks to withstand the high operating temperatures of the unit. Thus, the development of active heterogeneous catalysts has received a great attention because a separation step is not necessary. As an economical, easy management and ecological friendly reactor, constructed wetland is supposed to be a promising technique to treat the wastewater in developing country. Photocatalytic treatment of organic pollutants in a synthetic wastewater using UV light and combinations of TiO2, H2O2 and Fe(III) Solvent extraction is a common form of chemical extraction using organic solvent as the extractant. Polymeric adsorbents are non-functionalized organic polymers which are capable of removing organics from water. RESEARCH ARTICLE Photocatalytic treatment of organic pollutants in a synthetic wastewater using UV light and combinations of TiO 2, H 2O 2 and Fe(III) Stavros G. Poulopoulos ID*, Azat Yerkinova, Gaukhar Ulykbanova, Vassilis J. Inglezakis ID The Environment & Resource Efficiency Cluster (EREC), Environmental Science & Technology Group Comparing test methods for granular activated carbon for organic micropollutant elimination Jan Freihardt et al, JECE, 2017, 5(3), 2542-2551 2 cited This study compared different test methods for evaluating the adsorption performance of granular activated carbon (GAC) for organic micropollutant elimination from wastewater or drinking water. Chromatography-mass spectrometry method is an advanced method to separate and define the organic pollutants in the waste water. Chemists from Asia and Africa explore organic pollutants in wastewater, how to detect and measure them, and how to remove and treat them. The flocculation is the most common used technique owing to its moderate price and basically satisfactory results. A constructed wetland is an artificial wetland which could wetlands act as a biofilter, removing sediments and pollutants such as heavy metals and organic pollutants from the water. (GB8978-88, China) [61]. Both leachates were significantly oxidized under these conditions in terms of COD removal 77-75% and BOD5 removal 90-98%. (1975), Ph.D. (1978), and D.Sc. Over the years, incineration technologies have evolved considerably and regulations and procedures have continually been enhanced to protect human and animal health and the environment. Since they are persistent, long way transported and toxic, these organic pollutants draw more attentions. This reduces the mass and volume requiring disposal. The MBR system achieved a good COD (90-95%) removal; due to the presence of the anaerobic biofilter, also effective color removal was obtained (70%). Typical conditions for wet oxidation range from 180 ◦C and 2 MPa to 315 ◦C and 15 MPa. As physical adsorption takes place, it begins as a monolayer. Some of them, for example, the pesticides were widely used for several years. An iron solution is added on the top of the reactor to maintain catalyst activity constant. The abundance, availability, and low cost of agricultural byproducts make them good adsorbents for the removal of various pollutants from wastewaters. There is a need to study further the radiation effects, evaluate reliability and cost of treating specific group of organic pollutants in cooperation with other stakeholders who are involved in using other technologies. He has received Fast Track Young Scientist Award from the Department of Science and Technology, India, to work in the area of bending actuators and artificial muscles. The pharmaceutical manufacturing industry produces a wide range of products to be used as human and animal medications. The heavy metal can not be removed by activated sludge effectively. Therefore, advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) with the capability of exploiting the high reactivity of hydroxyl radicals in driving oxidation have emerged a promising technology for the treatment of wastewaters containing refractory organic compounds. For many organic pollutants, the ideal pH for the Fenton reaction is between 3 and 4, and the optimum catalyst to peroxide ratio is usually 1:5 wt/wt. quinoline. 75 / No. At same or similar levels of HRT, the two systems had almost identical COD and NH3 removals, but a different organic-N removal. The amount of organic compounds in wastewater is generally evaluated by chemical oxygen demand (COD) test, biological oxygen demand (BOD) test, and (TOC) test. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold Inc. Portland, OR (, Ringgold Keywords In aquatic environments chromium can be present as Cr(III) and/or Cr(VI), mainly depending on pH and redox conditions; the two forms behave quite differently, since Cr(III) is much less soluble and therefore less mobile than Cr(VI). It is necessary to control pH carefully to prevent precipitation of iron hydroxide. The colored nature of the effluent is mainly due to (1) the presence of melanoidins, that are brown polymers formed by the Maillard amino-carbonyl reaction and (2) the presence of thermal and alkaline degradation products of sugars (e.g. Organically bound metals can be extracted along with the target organic contaminants, thereby creating residuals with special handling requirements. The biodegradation rate and biodegradation degree of the organic substance partly depended on the characters of the substance. Accordingly, the maximum capacity of a porous adsorbent can be more related to the pore volume than to the surface area. Some wastewater treatment plants are able to remove more nitrogen and phosphorus from their discharges than others depending on their equipment and how they treat wastewater. Introduction of hydrogen peroxide into the waste stream is critical due to lower stability of hydrogen peroxide. Optimum pH was determined as 3.5 and 7.0 for the first (oxidation 30 min) and second stage (coagulation 30 min) of the Fenton process, respectively. Auto Suggestions are available once you type at least 3 letters. Bio-Fenton (BF) and bio-electro-Fenton (BEF) are promising methods for the treatment of persistent organic pollutants from many sources of wastewaters. Promising techniques involve. Some of the organic pollutants like organic matters, organophosphorus pesticide, which have relativity high water solubility and low acute toxicity, are bioavailable and easy to be degraded [7]. Anaerobic degradation processes have always been considered to be slow and inefficient, in comparison to aerobic degradation. Wastewater Treatment Processes (WWTP) are used to treat municipal as well as industrial wastewater to meet effluent standards prior to discharge in the natural environment. Thus, the slurry type of TiO2 catalyst application is usually preferred. All Rights Reserved. Therefore, the hydrogen peroxide is the ideal drinking water pre-oxidant and disinfectant. However, considering for the removal of organic compounds in wastewater, the reactivity of hydrogen peroxide is generally low and largely incomplete due to kinetics, in particular in acidic media. With the development of semiconducting materials with narrow bandgap, visible light-driven PEC has been developed as one of the most effective techniques to treat wastewater containing mixed organic-heavy metal pollutants. The COD, BOD and TOC test could quickly reflect the organic pollution in the wastewater, however, they can't reflect the kinds of organic matter and composition of the water, and therefore cannot reflect the total amount of the same total organic carbon pollution caused by different consequences. "Municipal wastewater" refers to the contents of sewer systems -- both liquid wastes from households, institutions and industries, and stormwater. Process steps Overview. They are extremely powerful species to abstract one electron from an electron rich organic substrate or any other species present in the medium to form hydroxide anion. © Materials Research Forum. The conventional treatment of this kind of high strength wastewater is anaerobic/aerobic activated sludge processes. Peat is a yellow to dark brown residue, which occurs during the first stage of coal formation. It can be enhanced by homogeneous and/or heterogeneous catalysts, the progress named wet hydrogen peroxide catalytic oxidation (WHPCO). He has published four edited books with Springer, the United Kingdom and three by Materials Research Forum LLC, U.S.A. Print ISBN 978-1-945291-62-3 (release date April 1st, 2018) 1 / 2019 pp. Agricultural waste biomass currently is gaining importance. For instance, hydrometallurgy, a classical process to recover metals, is inhibited by the presence of organic compounds and a pre-treatment step, to remove or destroy organics, is generally required, pyrometallurgy which is able to … Zubera Naseem, Haq Nawaz Bhatti, Munawar Iqbal, Effective Degradation of Methylene Blue using ZnO:Fe:Ni Nanocomposites Wastewater discharges from industrial sources contain a wide range in levels of COD, BOD, TSS and other emerging contaminants (i.e. WHPCO process has been proposed for a variety of agro-food and industrial effluents: removal of dyestuffs from textile, treat sewage sludge, purify wastewater from pharmaceutical and chemical production, dumping site, or from cellulose production and pre-treat water streams from food-processing industries (olive oil mills, distilleries, sugar refineries, coffee production, tanneries, etc.) Hence, this high-carbohydrate wastewater is the most useful for industrial production of hydrogen. One of the most representative heavy metals is chromium. We are IntechOpen, the world's leading publisher of Open Access books. Coke wastewater handling usually consists of a series of physico-chemical treatments reducing the concentration of ammonia, cyanide, solids and other substances, followed by different biological treatments, mainly activated sludge process. Adsorption is the process by which a solid adsorbent can attach a component dissolved in water to its surface and form an attachment via physical or chemical bonds, thus removing the component from the fluid phase. In addition, its polar nature is responsible for its specific adsorption potential for dissolved metals and polar organic compounds. It is commonly used in combination with other technologies, such as solidification/stabilization, incineration, or soil washing, depending upon site-specific conditions. COD removals as a result of hydrogen gas production were generally in the range of 5-11%. The classic poisonous substances in organic wastewater are as follow: Water organic matter is the genetic name of the organic compounds in the sediment and wastewater. It is almost impossible to describe a typical textile effluent because of such diversity. Formaldehy is a stimulus to skin and mucous membrane. Homogeneous catalysts for CWAO are usually transition metal cations, such as Cu and Fe ions. Maximum COD removal was obtained at around pH 7.0 [28]. Beltrán et al. Electrocoagulation (EC) is a simple and efficient method used in many cases as an alternative in treating different wastewaters, such as wastewater from electro galvanic coatings [3, 9], from restaurant wastewater [3, 10] and poultry slaughterhouse wastewater [3, 11]. The solids that remain at the end of the process are an inert material commonly known as ash. Open Access is an initiative that aims to make scientific research freely available to all. the techniques like … To date, the most widely applied photocatalyst in the research of water treatment is the Degussa P-25 TiO2 catalyst. This process terminates toxic organics without leaving any sludge or solid waste. The classic aerobic biodegradation reactors include activated sludge reactor and membrane bioreactor. However, for some POPs and xenobiotic organic pollutants, such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heterocyclic compounds, pharmaceutical substances, which possess a higher bioaccumulation, biomagnification and biotoxicity properties, are reluctant to biodegradation in the nature condition. Pirkanniemi et al. These advantages could increase the efficiency of this treatment, and guarantee the water quality of the effluent. Aerobic biological treatment is the method of degrading pollutants by the action of aerobic microorganisms (mainly aerobic bacteria) under aerobic conditions. There are two common incineration technologies for wastewater solids and biosolids: fluidized bed incinerators and multiple hearth incinerators. The characteristics of the carbon material (particle and pore size, surface area, surface chemistry, etc.) This effluent represents an environmental problem due to its high organic load, intense colouration and presence of phenolic compounds. Sewage is one of the most important sources of degradable organic pollutants, which contributes to 37.5% of total COD in China in 2011. Use of carbon quantum dots (CQDs) for photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants. Dyes and pigments have been utilized for coloring in the textile industry for many years. Some wastewater treatment plants are able to remove more nitrogen and phosphorus from their discharges than others depending on their equipment and how they treat wastewater. As biochar can be used for adsorption of typical pollutants in livestock wastewater, it becomes a promising method to treat livestock wastewater. This technique was invented by Ardern and Lockett at the beginning of last century and was considered as a wastewater treatment technique for larger cities as it required a more sophisticated mode of operation (Fig. naphthalene, and heterocyclic nitrogenous compounds, e.g. Algae are a diverse group of photosynthetic organisms capable of treating industrial waste water pollutants primarily through bioaccumulation and biosorption. After fabrics are manufactured, […] The decolorization efficiency is as high as 92% in Fenton treatment of a mature leachate[23]. Most of the ash is discharged from the bottom hearth. The gas (air or oxygen) entered the reactor through the titanium sparger. As a result, ozonation extensively consumes energy, thus reducing its treatment efficiency. Chemisorption involves the formation of chemical bonds between the adsorbate and adsorbent is a monolayer, often with a release of heat much larger than the heat of condensation. TiO2 based nanocomposites. Wastewater represents an alternative to freshwater if it can be treated successfully for re-use applications. An addition point should give large residence time of H2O2 in the pollutant stream, but due to the practical constraints and poor mixing conditions, it is not always possible to inject H2O2 in line and an additional holding tank is required. He also awarded the Young Scientist Award from the Saudi Chemical Society in 2009 and also the first prize for the distinction in science from the Saudi Chemical Society in 2012. We share our knowledge and peer-reveiwed research papers with libraries, scientific and engineering societies, and also work with corporate R&D departments and government entities.
