Article
Phthalate esters (PAEs) are hazardous organic compounds that are widely added to plastics to enhance their flexibility, temperature, and acidic tolerance. The increase in global consumption and the corresponding environmental pollution of PAEs has caused broad public concerns. As most PAEs accumulate in soil due to their high hydrophobicity, compos...

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the potential role that wastewater-based epidemiology can play in assessing aggregate community health. However, efforts to translate SARS-CoV-2 gene copy numbers obtained from wastewater samples into meaningful community health indicators are nascent. In this study, SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid (N) genes (N1 and N2...
Article
Surface complexation models (SCM), based mainly on the diffuse double layer (DDL) theory, have been used to predict zeta potential at the crude oil-brine-rock (COBR) interface with limited success. However, DDL is inherently limited in accurately predicting zeta potential by the assumptions that all the brine ions interact with the rock surface at...

New water and wastewater treatment technologies are required to meet the demands created by emerging contaminants and resource recovery needs, yet technology development is a slow and uncertain process. Through evolution, nature has developed highly selective and fast-acting proteins that could help address these issues, but research and applicatio...

Purpose of Review This review offers current understanding of the source of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infections especially in relation to engineered water systems. It provides a summary of current treatment methods and highlights novel treatment options being developed. Recent Findings Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infections are thou...

Biocatalytic technologies are characterized by targeted, rapid degradation of contaminants over a range of environmentally relevant conditions representative of groundwater, but have not yet been integrated into drinking water treatment processes. This work investigated the potential for a hybrid ion-exchange/biocatalytic process, where biocatalysi...
Article
Full-text available
This work investigated the potential for biocatalytic degradation of micropollutants, focusing on chlorine oxyanions as model contaminants, by mining biology to identify promising biocatalysts. Existing isozymes of chlorite dismutase (Cld) were characterized with respect to parameters relevant to this high volume, low-value product application: kin...
Article
Full-text available
Biocatalytic reduction of perchlorate can minimize the effects of competitive electron acceptors and completely reduce perchlorate into chloride and oxygen, but to date has only been demonstrated under idealized laboratory conditions. This work investigated biocatalytic perchlorate reduction in two groundwater drinking water sources, under a range...
Article
Full-text available
Existing methods for perchlorate remediation are hampered by the common co-occurrence of nitrate, which is structurally similar and a preferred electron acceptor. In this work, the potential for perchlorate removal using cell-free bacterial enzymes as biocatalysts was investigated using crude cell lysates and soluble protein fractions of Azospira o...
