Article
BACKGROUND This study involved model evaluation of the acute impact of sulfamethoxazole on utilization of peptone mixture and acetate by fast growing microbial cultures under aerobic conditions. These substrates were selected to represent complex and readily biodegradable organic carbon sources, respectively. Acclimated biomass was obtained from tw...
Article
Many trace contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) including a number of pharmaceutically active compounds are not effectively removed during conventional wastewater treatment processes and instead accumulate in wastewater sludge. Unfortunately, many existing sludge stabilization treatments such as anaerobic digestion (AD) also have limited effecti...
Article
Full-text available
Antimicrobial compounds are used in a broad range of personal care, consumer and healthcare products and are frequently encountered in modern life. The use of these compounds is being reexamined as their safety, effectiveness and necessity are increasingly being questioned by regulators and consumers alike. Wastewater often contains significant amo...
Article
Full-text available
The effects of microwave (MW) pretreatment were investigated by six anaerobic digesters operated under thermophilic and mesophilic conditions at high organic loading rates (4.9–5.7 g volatile solids/L/d). The experiments and analyses were mainly designed to reveal the impact of MW pretreatment and digester temperatures on the process stability and...
Article
Full-text available
Treatment of emerging contaminants, such as antimicrobials, has become a priority topic for environmental protection. As a persistent, toxic, and bioaccumulative antimicrobial, the accumulation of triclosan (TCS) in wastewater sludge is creating a potential risk to human and ecosystem health via the agricultural use of biosolids. The impact of micr...
Article
This study, for the first time, investigated the impact of microwave pretreatment on the fate of the pervasive antimicrobial triclocarban (TCC) that was already present in municipal sludge, before and during advanced anaerobic digestion (AD) under thermophilic and mesophilic conditions. A range of microwave temperature (80 and 160 °C) and exposure...
Article
Sludge management is still one of the most challenging issues in wastewater treatment plants due to a dramatic increase in sludge production, high sludge disposal costs, legal constraints as well as social and environmental concerns. There is a great effort to develop more environmentally friendly and economical technologies for minimization of exc...
Article
The effects of microwave (MW) final temperature (80 and 160 °C) and holding time (1 and 30 minutes) were evaluated by ten anaerobic digesters (AD). MW was applied to dewatered secondary sludge with total solids of 10.5 ± 0.5% (by weight) to minimize energy input. Mixed sludge was digested under thermophilic and mesophilic conditions at sludge reten...
Article
In this study, an integrated aerobic membrane bioreactor (MBR)-nanofiltration (NF) system has been applied for advanced treatment of Opium processing wastewaters to comply with strict discharge limits. Aerobic MBR treatment was successfully applied to high strength industrial wastewater. In aerobic MBR treatment, a non-fouling unique slot aeration...
