Atrazine is the most widely used herbicide in conservation tillage systems, which are designed to prevent soil erosion. Wastewater obtained from Guangxi Nanning sugar refinery (COD 86.02 g/L) is first diluted by 100 times, then treated by adding amphiphilic flocculants (CMTMC) mg/L at pH 6.6, COD removal to reached to 95%. The high reactivity of HO• ensures that it will attack a wide range of organic compounds. Dyes and pigments have been utilized for coloring in the textile industry for many years. These advantages would increase the efficient and stable performance of this system . The structure diversity of different components in the wastewater results in a different retention on the stationary phase and thus changing the separation. This mixture of raw wastewater and returned sludge is known as mixed liquor. He is the life member of several Indian Scientific and Chemical Societies. His research interest covers color chemistry, synthesis of novel photochromic and thermochromic systems, synthesis of novel coloring matters and dyeing of textiles, materials chemistry, nanochemistry and nanotechnology, polymers and plastics.

The treatment system to be adopted depends mainly on the standards to be achieved, reliability of the treatment system and its cost. Nowadays, due to the increasing presence of molecules, refractory to the microorganisms in the wastewater streams, the conventional biological methods cannot be used for complete treatment of the effluent and hence, introduction of newer technologies to convert it into less harmful or lower chain compounds which can be then treated biologically, has become imperative. S. Hariganesh, Photocatalytic Decomposition of Organic Dyes He has been the member of the editorial boards of Acta Chromatographica, Acta Universitatis Cibiniensis Seria F. Chemia, Air Pollution, and Annals of Agrarian Science. Plants could also pump oxygen to form an aerobic and anaerobic area in the deep level of constructed wetland to assist the breaking down of organic materials. Detection, determination and removal of phenolic compounds from wastewater. 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. The simplest reactor design is usually a cocurrent vertical bubble column with a height-todiameter ratio in the range of 5-20. It has been utilized for solving disposal problems and also as an adsorbent in treating organic wastewaters. 34-42 DOI 10.5755/j01.erem.75.1.21532 Removal of Organic Pollutants from Tofu-Processing Wastewater through Anaerobic Treatment Process … At an initial pH of less than 6.5 and H2O2 concentration of 0.3 M, COD removal reached 44-50% and approximately 95% of total phenol removal was achieved at a reaction time of 1 h. The oxygen uptake rate of the effluent measured at a reaction time of 1 h increased by approximately 65% compared to that of the raw coking wastewater. Q. Kanwal, D.N. With a strong reducibility, formaldehyde could easily combine with a variety of material, and is easy to be together. Dr. Mohammad obtained his M.Sc. 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 The very slow decomposition rate of hydrogen peroxide in the drinking water treatment, with mild operation conditions, can ensure a longer disinfection. This part aims at highlighting three different oxidation processes operating at ambient conditions viz. The oxidation ditch is characterized by simple process, low maintain consumption, steady operation, and strong shock resistance. He has been awarded the best researchers from KAU for the past five years. Apart from pH, the degradation of target compounds in the liquid phase corresponds to the amount and form (species) of oxidants present in a reactor . These organic pollutants, such as polysaccharide, methanol could be degraded by the bacteria, fungus and algae. "Municipal wastewater" refers to the contents of sewer systems -- both liquid wastes from households, institutions and industries, and stormwater. The phenol in the wastewater mainly comes from the coking plant, refining, insulation material manufacturing, paper making and phenolic chemical plant. The classic aerobic biodegradation reactors include activated sludge reactor and membrane bioreactor. Membrane bioreactor (MBR) is the combination of a membrane process like microfiltration or ultrafiltration with a suspended growth bioreactor, and is now widely used for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment. Many factors, such as the characters of the pollutants, the environmental factors (PH value, temperature etc. 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. With the slurry TiO2 system, an additional process step would need to be entailed for post-separation of the catalysts. An iron solution is added on the top of the reactor to maintain catalyst activity constant. In some cases, the energy recovered from this process has been used in heat exchangers and waste heat boilers to save on energy use at. The anaerobic activated sludge process includes conventional stirred anaerobic reactor, upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor, and anaerobic contact tank. 34-42 DOI 10.5755/j01.erem.75.1.21532 Removal of Organic Pollutants from Tofu-Processing Wastewater through Anaerobic Treatment … He is the Professor of Organic Photochemistry. This discovery was awarded a patent from European Patent office and from UK patent. 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 … COD removals as a result of hydrogen gas production were generally in the range of 5-11%. The temperature in the combustion zone of furnaces is typically 1023K to 1143K. Membrane filtration processes for the removal of organics from industrial wastewater. Publication Date 2018, 362 Pages Removal of total organic carbon from wastewater was enhanced by the addition of TiO 2 nanoparticles in a study . 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. However, the contaminated water is always short of oxygen, which could cause sludge bulking, a great problem decrease the water quality of the effluent. Detection, determination and removal of phenolic compounds from wastewater. He graduated from King Abdulaziz University (KAU) with B.Sc. In the laboratory, it is occasionally used as a solvent, especially for electrophilic reagents. This is the first of two volumes. 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. Activated sludge is a process for treating sewage and industrial wastewaters using air and a biological floc composed of bacteria and protozoans. The top of the reactor is connected to a reflux condenser with a stainless steel flange.

He is a life member of the Journal of the Indian Chemical Society. naphthalene, and heterocyclic nitrogenous compounds, e.g. He is the Vice- President of Saudi Chemical Society (Western Province Branch). Besides, atrazine also has a potential cause of birth defects, low birth weights and menstrual problems when consumed at concentrations below federal standards. WAO is not used as a complete treatment method, but only as a pretreatment step where the wastewater is rendered to nontoxic materials and the COD is reduced for the final treatment. Advanced oxidation could degrade the organisms and reduce the toxicity of this wastewater, but it is too expensive to be used to deal with a great amount of dyeing wastewater. Therefore it must be adequately treated before they can discharge into receiving water bodies. The COD value is always measured by the acidic potassium permanganate method and potessium dichromate method, and could reflect the pollution degree of reducing matter in water, including ammonia and reducing sulfide, so in wastewater with high quantity of reducing matter, the COD value will overestimate the organic pollutants in the water. Several biological methods, including aerobic biodegradation, activated sludge reactor, membrane bioreactor, constructed wetland etc., have been used in the sewages treatment, and their efficiency and cost have been compared. The characteristics of the carbon material (particle and pore size, surface area, surface chemistry, etc.) dissolved copper salts, are effective, an additional separation step is required to remove or recover the metal ions from the treated effluent due to their toxicity, and accordingly increases operational costs. And the triphase separator (gas, liquid, sludge biomass) could prevent the biomass loss of the sludge through the gas emission and water discharge. This process introduced air or oxygen into a mixture of primary treated or screened wastewater combined with organisms to develop a biological floc which reduces the organic content of the sewage, which is largely composed of microorganisms such as saprotrophic bacteria, nitrobacteria and denitrifying bacteria. He has published four edited books with Springer, the United Kingdom and three by Materials Research Forum LLC, U.S.A. Sewage treatment is the process of removing contaminants from municipal wastewater, containing mainly household sewage plus some industrial wastewater. If several compounds are present in the water, strong adsorbers will attach to the carbon in greater quantity than those with weak adsorbing ability. Taking the research of Song as an example, in response to the characteristics of decentralized domestic sewage, several treatment technologies including biogas purification tank, constructed wetland, viewing earthworm ecological, high rate algal pond, membrane bioreactor and integrated treatment equipment were applied to the domestic sewage, and their efficiency and cost were calculated and showed in table 1. Promising techniques involve. It is necessary to control pH carefully to prevent precipitation of iron hydroxide. The paper making wastewater reaches 10% of total industrial water. The principle of the anaerobic degradation is as follow: first, the insoluble organic pollutant brakes down the into soluble substance, making them available for other bacteria; second, the acidogenic bacteria convert the sugars and amino acid into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia and organic acid; third, the organic acids convert into acetic acid, ammonia, hydrogen and carbon dioxide; finally, the methanogens convert the acetic acid into hydrogen, carbon dioxide and methane, a kind of gaseous fuel . The Principle of this technique is nearly the same as activated sludge process, except that instead of separation the water and sludge through settlement, the MBR method uses the membrane which is more efficient and less dependent on oxygen concentration of the water. 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 contaminant is attracted to and held (adsorbed) on the surface of the carbon particles. This wastewater has high BOD, and could break down in the nature condition, given enough time. ePDF ISBN 978-1-945291-63-0 Powdered activated carbon is made up of crushed or ground carbon particles, 95–100% of which will pass through a designated mesh sieve or sieves. The carbonization process includes drying and then heating to separate by-products, including tars and other hydrocarbons, from the raw material, as well as to drive off any gases generated. By making research easy to access, and puts the academic needs of the researchers before the business interests of publishers. Zabala, V. Calabro, S. Curcio, S. Chakraborty, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persistent_organic_pollutant, ProtoView by Ringgold Clean Data (2007)  tested the Fenton’s oxidation to degrade complexing agents such as N-bis[2-(1,2-dicarboxyethoxy) ethyl)] glysine (BCA5), N-bis[2-(1,2-dicarboxyethoxy)ethyl]aspartic acid (BCA6) and EDTA from bleaching wastewater. Prof. Asiri involved in many committees at the KAU level and on the national level. Besides, anaerobic processes could treat the wastewater with high loads of easy-to-degrade organic materials (wastewaters of the sugar industry, slaughter houses, food industry, paper industry, etc.) Detection, determination and removal of phenolic compounds from wastewater. are included in the AOPs and their main difference is the source of radicals. Flocculation is another efficient method for paper making wastewater treatment, and its COD remove rate could reach 95% at the optimal condition, and the flocculants could be reused after treatment. Sources of industrial wastewater containing heavy metals include complex organic chemicals, electric power plants, electronics manufacturing, electroplating, iron and steel, and mines and quarries. 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 experimental data also revealed that the pressure and temperature effects on the COD removal were important. Some organic pollutants undergo hydrolysis at alkaline pH, which is one of the reasons for the improved photocatalytic degradation at alkaline pH (Bhatkhande et al., 2002). And biological treatment was able to reduce the remaining dissolved organic carbon to less than 35 mg/L. BOD5/COD ratio is increased from 0.15 to 0.4. All Rights Reserved. TiO2 based nanocomposites. The oxygen concentration could be increased by including aeration devices in the system, but research need to be done to find out the optimal value since aeration would cause an increase of the costs of the wastewater treatment plants. For example, many of the organochlorine pesticides cited above are carcinogenic, teratogenic, and neurotoxic. This is not a precise quantitative test, although it is widely used as an indication of the organic quality of water. Brief introduction to this section that descibes Open Access especially from an IntechOpen perspective, Want to get in touch? The other main byproducts are typically oxygen and nitrogen. Enhanced treatment systems enable some wastewater plants to produce discharges that contain less nitrogen than plants using conventional treatment methods. pharmaceuticals, aldehydes, glycol, amines, alcohols, complex proteins, 75 / No. Donatella et al investigated the fate of Cr(III) and Cr(VI) in a full-scale subsurface horizontal flow constructed wetland planted. The COD reduction of anaerobic process treating pharmaceutical wastewater containing macrolide antibiotics was 70-75%, at a total HRT of 4 d and OLR of 1.86 kg COD/m3/d . Among their topics are green applications of magnetic sorbents for environmental remediation, the effective degradation of methylene blue using zinc oxide:iron:nickel nanocomposites, carbon quantum dot composites for the photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants, the photocatalytic decomposition of organic dyes, titania-based nanocomposites for the photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants, and whether membranes can be a solution to industrial water pollution and its treatment. PCBs, depending on the specific congener, have been shown to both inhibit and imitate estradiol. Pretreatment of Afyon (Turkey) alcaloide factory wastewater, a typical high strength industrial wastewater (COD= 26.65 kg/m3; BOD5= 3.95 kg/m3) was carried out by WAO process. Typical contaminants of wool textile effluents are heavy metal complexes with azo-dyes. Compounds that are less water-soluble are more likely to be adsorbed to a solid. 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. High mount of hydrophilic organic pollutants, such as organic matters, oil could consume a large amount of soluble oxygen. Adopting solvent extraction treatment technology for organic wastewater, the most important thing is to choose the right process flow specifically for specially appointed pollution. CWAO makes a promising technology for the treatment of refractory organic pollutants (phenolic compounds, carboxylic acids, N-containing compounds) in industrial wastewaters, such as Olive oil mill wastewater, Kraft bleaching plant effluents, Coke plant wastewater, Textile wastewater, Alcohol-distillery wastewater, Landfill leachate, Pulp and paper bleaching liquor, Heavily organic halogen polluted industrial wastewater and so on . Physical adsorption occurs quickly and may be mono-molecular (unimolecular) layer or monolayer, or 2, 3 or more layers thick (multi-molecular). The biodegradation rate and biodegradation degree of the organic substance partly depended on the characters of the substance. However, care should be taken while selecting the dosage, for high dosage leasing environmental question and high treatment cost. Sludge is removed in the secondary settling tank, and part of the sludge is pumped to a sludge pumping room where the sludge is thickened with the help of aerator pumps . Furthermore, combined treatment (biological treatment and Fenton oxidation) resulted in enhanced color reduction . These organic pollutants in water can harm the environment and also pose health risks for humans. Although their concentration as well as the cute toxicity in the wastewater is lower than the soluble organic pollutant, they can be sequestered in sediment and exist for decades, and transport into the wastewater and then the food chain. The main causes of surface and groundwater contamination are industrial effluents (even in small amounts), excessive use of pesticides, fertilizers (agrochemicals) and domestic waste landfills. Their adsorption equilibrium had been studied and showed that the synthetic zeolites have higher adsorption capacity than the natural zeolites for the removal of ink, dyes and polluted wastewater.
