Microplastics in sewage sludge: effects of treatment
(American Chemical Society, 2016-12-12)
Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTPs) are receptors for the cumulative loading of microplastics (MPs) derived from industry, landfill, domestic waste water and storm water. The partitioning of MPs through the settlement ...
Nutrient, metal and microbial loss in surface runoff following treated sludge and dairy cattle slurry application to an Irish grassland soil
Treated municipal sewage sludge ( biosolids ) and dairy cattle slurry (DCS) may be applied to agricultural land as an organic fertiliser. This study investigates losses of nutrients in runoff water (nitrogen (N) and ...
Treatment of landfill leachate in municipal wastewater treatment plants and impacts on effluent ammonium concentrations.
Landfill leachate is the result of water percolating through waste deposits that have undergone aerobic and anaerobic microbial decomposition. In recent years, increasingly stringent wastewater discharge requirements have ...
Catalytic potential of selected metal ions for bioleaching, and potential techno-economic and environmental issues: a critical review
Bioleaching is considered to be a low-cost, eco-friendly technique for leaching valuable metals from a variety of matrixes. However, the inherent slow dissolution kinetics and low metal leaching yields have restricted its ...
