Recycling of organic waste is an important topic in developing countries as well as developed countries. Compost from organic waste has been used for soil conditioner. In this study, an experiment has been carried out to produce green energy (bioelectricity) by using paddy plant microbial fuel cells (PMFCs) in soil mixed with compost. A total of si...

This study evaluated bioelectricity generation by using kitchen garbage (KG) and bamboo waste (BW) as a solid waste management option by a microbial fuel cell (MFC) method. The nutrient content [nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (NPK)] of the by-products of bioelectricity were also analyzed and assessed for their potential use as a soil amendment....
Article
Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) have gained a lot of attention recently as a mode of converting organic matter into electricity. In this study, a compost-based microbial fuel cell that generates bioelectricity by biodegradation of organic matter is developed. Grass cuttings, along with leaf mold, rice bran, oil cake (from mustard plants) and chicken dr...

Landslide and other geo-disasters are causing a great damage to people and the resources all over the world. An environment friendly countermeasure of landslide disasters is necessary. Microbially induced calcite precipitation (MICP) is a bio-cementation process that can improve the geotechnical properties of granular soils through the precipitatio...
Presentation
The 13th International Conference between Yamaguchi University and Kunsan National University
Conference Paper
In this study, to generate bio-electricity and to improve sediment simultaneously has been discussed. It is a solemn problem to supply the power to the geo-environmental monitoring sensors, as traditional batteries or solar cells are often inconvenient due to the limitation of charge exhaustion or bad weather, respectively. Four different sediments...

In this research, bioremediation of tsunami-affected polluted soil has been conducted by using collective microorganisms and recycled waste glass. The Tohoku earthquake, which was a mega earthquake in Japan triggered a huge tsunami on March 11th, 2011 that caused immeasurable damage to the geo-environmental conditions by polluting the soil with hea...
Article
Full-text available
In this research, a study has been carried out to investigate the potential use of native bacteria from the Chugoku region of Japan for slope soil stabilization. In the biocementation process, soil improvement occurs due to the crystallization of calcium carbonate, which binds soil particles by the enzyme urease of ureolytic bacteria. The precipita...

Resource recovery and recycling of organic waste is a great challenge in the world. The unmanaged organic waste causes a great damage to the environment and the public health both in the developing countries and industrial parts of the world. In this research, an innovative method was adopted to generate bioelectricity from the organic waste by usi...
Article
This study explores the use of sediment microbial fuel cells (SMFCs) to generate a safe, stable, and efficient supply of bioelectricity to sensors and simultaneously improve sediment quality. Supplying energy to geoenvironmental monitoring sensors remains a challenge as traditional batteries and solar cells are limited by the need to recharge and t...
Article
A stable supply of electricity to the monitoring sensors and remediation of the contaminated tidal sediment are two major problems in the tidal flat monitoring research. In this study, an evaluation of remediation of sulfide contaminated tidal flat sediment has been carried out while generating bioelectricity through sediment microbial fuel cells (...

dramatic decrease in the catch of shellfish has been observed due to the high amount of Acid Volatile Sulfide (AVS) in the tidal flats in Japan. In the current study, an evaluation of simultaneous bioelectricity generation and remediation of sulfide contaminated tidal flat sediment has been done. The sediment samples collected from Tokyo Bay and Ya...
Conference Paper
A high content of salt in soil makes it unsuitable for crop production. In this study, a series of laboratory test was conducted to investigate the ability of bioremediation to reduce the salinity of soil samples. Saline soil was prepared after soaking the test soil in artificial seawater for 3 days and dried it. It was then mixed with different mi...
Conference Paper
Salinity of soil is a serious problem all over the world. The high content of salt causes the soil unsuitable for crop production and ultimately makes the soil unproductive in many parts of the world. In this current research, a laboratory test has been conducted to reduce the salinity of the soil by using different kind of bacteria. The unsaturate...

Investigation conducted by International Maritime Organization (IMO) concluded that the loss of the Bulk Jupiter that carrying bauxite from Kuantan has uncovered evidence to suggest liquefaction led to loss of stability. This research analysed Bukit Goh bauxite and comparison was made with International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC Code) stan...
Article
Full-text available
This research focuses on the differences of geotechnical properties between raw and processed Bukit Goh bauxite. As bauxite material has high clay content which mostly composed of silicate minerals, it has high risk to cause cargo liquefaction which in turn causes catastrophic incident. This paper includes the analysis of raw and processed bauxite...

Article
In this research, water plants microbial fuel cells (MFCs) were designed for bioelectricity generation. Organic soil and marine sediment were used for fresh water and sea water plants, respectively. It was observed that sea plants were more efficient for bioelectricity generation than the fresh water plants. The peak voltage reached at 520 mV when...
Article
A remarkable decrease of catch of shells was observed during the last three decades in the Ariake Sea. The higher content of acid volatile sulphide (AVS) is responsible for the unfavourable geoenvironmental condition. In this study, the relationship between the thermal properties of the tidal mud and the AVS is evaluated. The tidal mud was collecte...
Article
In this study, an experiment has been carried out to produce green energy (bioelectricity) by using paddy plant microbial fuel cells (PMFCs) in soil and observed the various factors which influenced the bioelectricity generation. A total of four buckets filled with the same soil were used with carbon fiber as the electrodes for the test. Rice plant...

In this study, a microbial fuel cell has been designed for the marine sediment to generate bio-electricity and to improve the geo-environmental condition simultaneously. Four different kinds of sediments were used in the laboratory tests to generate the bio-electricity. The acid volatile sulfide (AVS) was measured to verify the improvement of the g...

Salinity of soils is the condition of soils that have a high salt content. The predominant salt is normally sodium chloride (NaCl). As a result, saline soils are therefore also sodic soils but there may be sodic soils those are not saline, but alkaline. Salty soils are a common feature and an environmental problem in irrigated lands in arid and sem...
