Changes in the fractionation profile of Al, Ni and Mo during bioleaching of spent hydroprocessing catalysts with Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans.
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-06-05)
Spent hydroprocessing catalysts are known to contain a variety of potentially toxic metals and therefore studies on the bioavailability and mobility of these metals are critical for understanding the possible environmental ...
Defining corporate energy policy and strategy to achieve carbon Emissions reduction Targets via energy MANAGEMENT in non-energy intensive multi-site manufacturing organisations
Research on the characteristics of long-term energy policy and associated strategies in multisite manufacturing organisations is limited. Non-energy intensive multinationals do not face the environmental regulations ...
Using image processing for determination of settled sludge volume
(IWA Publishing, 2018-07-12)
Determination of the sludge volume index is key to describing the settling characteristics of sludge in the aeration process of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). The two core components of this calculation are the settled ...
An investigation of the viscoelastic creep behaviour of basalt fibre reinforced timber elements
An investigation was carried out to examine the effect of flexural reinforcement on the long-term behaviour of timber beams. Creep tests, utilising statistically matched groups, were performed under Service Class 1 conditions ...
Application of infrared thermography technique to the thermal assessment of multiple thermal bridges and windows
A major contribution to the global trend in reducing energy consumption can be made by improving the thermal performance of buildings. Minimization of heat loss via the building envelope is key to maximizing building energy ...
Flipped learning in a civil engineering module: student and instructor experiences
(Irish Learning Technology Association, 2018-08-24)
Flipped learning is a form of active learning in which the basic content is assimilated before scheduled classroom sessions, enabling more productive use of classroom time to cultivate problem-solving ability, a key ...

An evaluation of the general composition and critical raw material content of bauxite residue in a storage area over a twelve-year period
Bauxite residue, the by-product produced in the alumina industry, is being produced at an estimated global rate of approximately 150 million tonnes per annum. Currently, the reuse of bauxite residue is low (∼2%), due to ...
A novel image processing-based system for turbidity measurement in domestic and industrial wastewater
(IWA Publishing, 2018-01-19)
Wastewater treatment facilities are continually challenged to meet both environmental regulations and reduce running costs (particularly energy and staffing costs). Improving the efficiency of operational monitoring at ...
The influence of crown and stem characteristics on timber quality in softwoods
The relationships between several crown and tree properties and timber quality were examined on three softwood species: Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco), Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) H. Karst) and Sitka ...
