    ABSTRACT: This study was conducted on samples taken from the “Fagul Cetății – Iazul nr. 4” tailings pond in the Eastern Carpathians, Romania and is focused on exploring the way in which heavy metals from sulphide rich material are spatially distributed in relation to the geochemical conditions. For comparison, concentrated ore samples from the same area, genetically linked to the Tulgheș lithogroup were also analysed. The mineralogical and chemical composition of the samples was determined along with the main physico-chemical parameters such as pH and Eh values. The results show that the mineralogical composition of the tailings is dominated mainly by quartz, chamosite and muscovite-illite, while in case of the processed ore, the main minerals are, as expected, pyrite and quartz. Some traces of jarosite, ankerite, muscovite, gypsum, albite as well as microcline were identified and linked to the geochemical conditions at the surface of the tailings, which revealed an heterogenic environment that can be divided into an acid, oxidizing area in the E and N, characterised by high contents of As, Fe, Pb, Sn and Co and a neutral area in the south-western slope of the tailings that revealed higher contents of Mn.

    ABSTRACT: Indigenous Pseudomonas veronii 2E, Klebsiella oxytoca P2 and Klebsiella ornithinolityca 1P were tested as catalysts for the transformation of Cr(VI) to Cr(III) for Cr(VI)-containing wastewater biotreatments. The cells were used in growing and quiescent state. Proof of the unsuitability for growing cells to be used as catalysts was found: the reduction rate and the maximum Cr(VI) concentration able to be reduced were too low. On the other hand, high density suspensions of resting cells presented the highest reduction rates, especially in the presence of an electron donor. The most efficient strain for Cr(VI) removal was Pseudomonas veronii 2E. Optimal pH and temperature for the biotransformation process resulted 7 and 32ºC respectively. The maximum initial reduction rate obtained in these conditions was 0.49mg Cr(VI) h-1 g cell dry weight-1. Proof of the feasibility and efficiency of this technology is provided by using in calcium alginate immobilized P. veronii 2E cells for the treatment of a real Cr(VI)-containing industrial wastewater.

    ABSTRACT: The water supply system is very important for the development of the country. Furthermore, a wastewater treatment with more than two levels of treatment decreases the risk of environmental pollution with heavy metals and better cleans the water that will be reused. According to Eurostat, in 2011 more than 40% of the Romanian population was not connected to the public water supply and even more to the wastewater system. In the present study raw data were analyzed and plotted to show the evolution of the drinking water supply and wastewater treatment, sludge production and disposal, precipitation and evaporation, freshwater abstraction, water consumption for different activities, and renewable freshwater resources during the period 2001 to 2011, before and after joining the European Union, integrated in the context of the future challenges. Since the Romania joined to the EU the projects co-financed by the EU for water supply development and rehabilitation were executed very fast. New modern water treatment plants were constructed and many villages were connected to the safe water supply system and wastewater treatment plants. As a result a large number of romanian inhabitants have access to a safe water resource monitorised permanently.

    ABSTRACT: This paper investigates the role of collective organizations created by producers to comply with the WEEE Directive. There are limited case studies on these producer responsibility organizations (PROs) despite the crucial role that they play in Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) schemes. An important aspect in order to evaluate the efficiency of these compliance schemes is the analysis of their internal costs including transaction costs. First of all, this research provides an understanding of the Italian WEEE system for households WEEE. Then, it focuses on one compliance organization and how it deals with physical, informative and financial responsibility that are different aspects of the EPR principle. We provide evidence on the costs incurred by the compliance organizations. We briefly describe the transaction costs involved in operating a collective PRO in comparison to individual scheme. We investigate the issue with the "ERP ITALIA S.R.L." case study. This is one of the producer responsibility organisations (PROs) operating in Italy and the only pan-European compliance scheme. This will allow future comparative studies with the other branches of ERP across Europe.

    ABSTRACT: One of the imperative concerns in river water quality management is to develop pollution control strategies which are satisfactory for all pollution load dischargers considering assimilative capacity of river. The game theory can be applied for modeling the natural process of decision making among dischargers under the condition of having just one water quality checkpoint in a river reach which receives pollution loads of several dischargers who would be penalized for any water quality violation from the standards. In this paper, a new methodology called N-person Bayesian Static Game is proposed for river quality management which is capable of incorporating the existing uncertainties in pollution loads of dischargers. This methodology can provide the Nash-Bays Equilibrium (BNE) of waste load allocation strategies. The practical utility of the developed methodology is investigated by applying it to a reach of the Zarjub River in north of Iran. This reach includes three pollution load dischargers.
