Conference Paper
Full-text available
Anaerobic digestion (AD) is an established process that offers benefits of converting animal manure into renewable energy as well reduces emissions to the environment. Considering the population of animals in Nigeria, this present study was undertaken to analysis the potential of converting Nigeria's animal manure into renewable energy. The amount...

The Bioprocess Engineering Section presents papers on a wide range of topics including but limited to Bio-based processes, productions and applications. Submission of papers dealing with routine aspects of bioprocess engineering i.e Bio-Energies, Bio-Materials, Bio
Article
Sludge generation is one of the major concerns in Fenton treatment of recalcitrant wastewaters. In this work, mineralization (reduction of Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC)) of petroleum refinery effluent (PRE) and the accompanying sludge generated in treating PRE was investigated. The mineralization level of 53% at optimum conditions produced 0.16 L...
Article
Full-text available
Crude glycerol, the main byproduct of biodiesel production, consists of excess methanol and other impurities and can be converted into other useful products through purification or conversion processes. In this work, dynamic viscosities, densities, excess molar volumes and refractive indexes for several mixtures of biodiesel crude glycerol and meth...

Full-text available
Over the years, managing agricultural wastes after harvest in developing countries like Nigeria has been a major challenge and continues to generate environmental concerns. To address the concerns, these agricultural wastes in the form of lignocellulosic biomass are burned. This approach, in turn, had led to a greater environmental interest as emis...
Article
The treatment of high-strength petroleum refinery effluent (PRE) with [BOD5]/[COD]0 = 0.14 was investigated using combined Fenton−Sequencing batch reactor (SBR). The effect of [H2O2]:[COD]0 molar ratio on biodegradability enhancement was investigated. Fenton optimal conditions were: [H2O2]:[COD]0 of 6, [H2O2]:[Fe0] of 10 and pH=3.0 that could remov...

In this work, dynamic viscosities, densities, excess molar volumes and refractive indexes for several mixtures of biodiesel crude glycerol and meth...
Article
Full-text available
The mineralisation kinetics of petroleum refinery effluent (PRE) by Fenton oxidation were evaluated. Within the ambit of the experimental data generated, first-order kinetic model (FKM), generalised lumped kinetic model (GLKM), and generalized kinetic model (GKM) were tested. The obtained apparent kinetic rate constants for the initial oxidation st...
Article
Performance of biodiesel in engines is well established and biodiesel is currently adjudged as a low carbon fuel with the most potential of replacing fossil fuels. The fossil fuel sources are dwindling in Pakistan resulting in importation of about 8.1 million tonnes at approximately US$ 9.4 billion per annum. In the ambit of this justification, aug...
Article
Full-text available
This study presents the degradation and mineralization results of phenol-containing fire fighting wastewater (FWW) generated from quenching a fire outbreak in an oil storage facility. The chemical oxygen demand (COD) and phenol content of the wastewater were above the Malaysian Standard B discharge limits of 100 and 1 mg L−1 for COD and phenol, res...
Article
Full-text available
The mineralisation of remazol black B (RBB) was studied at concentrations ranging from 20-1000 mgL(-1). The work was aimed at investigating the Fenton-like peroxidation of RBB at a concentration typically obtained in Batik cottage industries. Other response parameters were degradation and colour removal efficiencies. The parameters that were measur...
Article
Full-text available
This investigation deals with the application of electrochemical technology for the onsite generation of sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) from seawater for utilization in the power industry. The interaction at different levels of several variables namely, the electrode type and their surface area ratio, current density, and inter-electrode spacing were...
Article
Global warming, high-energy demand and availability of new technologies are among the factors catalyzing the search for alternative sources of energy. Currently, there is renewed interest in obtaining energy from wastes hitherto meant for disposal. Increased costs of disposal and their attendant problems of heavy environmental loading are some aspe...
Article
This work presents the results of a two-stage (carbon fixation and hydrogen production) experimental study for hydrogen production from microalgae using optical fiber as an internal light source. Effect of absence and presence of light on Chlamydomonas reinhardtii culture's pH shift is also evaluated. The culture pH value is a function of light int...
Article
Petroleum refinery effluents (PREs) are wastewaters characterised by high values of chemical oxygen demand (COD) and total organic carbon (TOC). Mineralisation of PRE is not commonly reported. For Fenton oxidation, in particular, reported PRE mineralisation is low. In this paper, treatability of a petroleum refinery effluent using a Fenton-like oxi...
Article
The literature on the use of Fenton oxidation in wastewater treatment has established the method as one of the most effective and suitable methods for recalcitrant wastewater treatment. It is an advanced oxidation process (AOP) that utilises the highly reactive hydroxyl radical (•OH) to aggressively and non-selectively destroy organic contaminants....
Article
This paper presents a brief account of different technologies used for the treatment of petroleum refinery effluents (PRE). Broadly, PRE treatment is accomplished in two stages, namely, a series of pre-treatment steps, in which suspended matter, oil and grease are reduced, and an advanced stage, in which wastewater contaminants are decreased to cer...
Article
Different samples of activated carbons were prepared by carbonization of corn cob - an abundant lignocelluloses material available locally. The thermo-gravimetric profile of the carbon was studied. Based on this, carbonization temperature was varied (600 - 800 °C) to obtain samples of different surface areas, porosities and densities. The sample ca...

In this study, disinfection of raw water using a low-cost activated carbon felt (ACF) electrode was carried out in a tubular electrochemical reactor. The potential of high surface area, appreciable pore network and possible application in disinfection without generating by-products of ACF informed its choice. The precursor utilized for the ACF prod...

Adverse effect of the highly biorecalcitrant compound phenol to the environment is well established and its concentrations in industrial effluents vary greatly from 2.8 to 6,800 mg/l depending on the source. Fenton process effectively mineralises to CO(2) and H(2)O but reported works consumed more reagents and require longer reaction times. Due to...

Electrokinetic remediation of nickel from low permeability soil using titanium electrodes having inter-electrode spacing of 10 cm was carried out in a cylindrical reactor. The influences of current density, voltage gradient and electrolyte pH were investigated upon removal efficiency for 60 h experimental runs. Efficiency improved from 49.3% to 57....
Article
In this study, performance of a laboratory-scale submerged hollow fibre membrane to treat oily wastewater from electroplating plant was investigated. The degradation of raw oily wastewater at a hydraulic retention time (HRT) of 13.3 hours was studied. Results of the three runs showed that oil and grease (O&G) was biodegraded in the MBR system to a...

Globally, the contribution of Small Medium Enterprise, (SMEs) to the national economy is acknowledged. In the Malaysian national economy more than a quarter of all manufacturing output is associated with the SMEs. The relevance of this sector to the economy is being threatened by myriad of challenges and several of such establishments have lost out...
