Purpose In this study, new hybrid polymers composed of Zinc chloride (ZnCl 2 ), acrylamide and chitosan were prepared at different ratios and temperatures. The effects of pH and polymer dosage were examined for different polymers to observe their efficiency in the removal of turbid water. The polymers’ zeta potential, morphology, elemental composit...

Local scour around complex abutment and pier is the main reason for bridges to collapse. Although the complex abutment/pier has been used in most rivers, there is limited research in the literature about the flow pattern and local scour at complex abutment/pier. In this study, a series of experimental test was conducted to predict local scour at co...

Coagulation is the most commonly used chemical treatment process used to remove contaminants from drinking water. In this study, the Log‐Dose Response (LDR) model and theoretical isotherm models (Langmuir and Freundlich) were employed to predict DOC removal in the coagulation process during La Nina events. The six months water samples were collecte...

This study aims to assess the ability of pressmud as an absorbent for heavy metals removal in leachate treatment. Pressmud is an organic waste, produced from sugar manufacturing that contains high amount of water, calcium and silica. The existing compounds of pressmud have potential to become an absorbent for physical-chemical treatment process; es...

The biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) of different types of raw wastewater including industrial and domestic wastewater in Jordan were studied using manometric method for a period of 20 days in the year 2018. This paper evaluates different BOD kinetic parameters estimation methods to determine the best method to be used (BOD20, L). Mathematical metho...

Leachate is a liquid produced from the landfill that contains high concentration of heavy metals, chemicals and nutrient loading. The treatability of these contaminants are complicated since the current treatment technology are costly and site specific. Therefore, this study was conducted to evaluate the treatability of stabilized landfill leachate...

The presence of Natural Organic Matter (NOM) in surface water results in unwanted characteristics in terms of color, odor, and taste. NOM content reaction with free chlorine in treated water lowers the water quality further. Chlorine is added for disinfection and produces undesirable disinfection by-products (DPBs). DBPs in drinking water are carci...
Conference Paper

This paper reviews about geopolymer based adsorbent focusing in the removal of heavy metal. The reviews include fundamental and types of material used in the formation of adsorbents. Geopolymer based adsorbent got attention recently due to its unique three-dimensional network structure, with fixed size pores and paths that allow certain heavy metal...

This research presents numerical and experimental investigations on the effects of number of nozzles and inlet velocity on the flow characteristics in a dissolved air flotation (DAF) tank pilot plant. The flow characteristics was modelled using a Eulerian multiphase and k-ε turbulence (RNG) model by using GAMBIT 2.3.16 and simulated using FLUENT 6....

Two different agro wastes (banana pseudostem and rice straw) were utilized in order to extract biopolymer (pectin) known as coagulant aid in water and wastewater treatment. Factors such as pH, temperature and time were chosen due to the critical role in hot acid extraction process. The yield of biopolymer extraction from banana pseudostem was found...

The research works involve the study of removal of cadmium and zinc contaminations in landfill leachate by electrocoagulation process. This project focused on leachate landfill from Pulau Burung, Nibong Tebal, Penang as an electrolyte solution. Heavy metals are the main factor contributing to pollution in leachate landfill. Types of electrodes used...

The treatment of organics present in the lower reaches of a major river system (the Murray–Darling Basin, Australia) before (March–July 2010), during (December 2010–May 2011) and after (April–December 2012) a major flood period was investigated. The flood period (over 6 months) occurred during an intense La Niña cycle, leading to rapid and high inc...

In recent climatic events in Australia, the need for frequent jar testing to determine optimum coagulant and flocculant aid doses became apparent in order to determine optimum treatment efficiencies. The generally applied jar test procedure can be time consuming and this prompted investigations for capacity to test waters more rapidly, for a range...

Oxidation Ponds (OPs) are very popular to the conventional sewage treatment methods for small communities. The sample was taken from influent and effluent outlets of OPs in USM Engineering Campus. Performance was evaluated based on pH, temperature, total solid (TS), suspended solid (SS), volatile solid (VSS), chemical oxygen demand (COD), dissolve...

In order to understand and improve drinking water treatment process operations, many techniques have been established to characterize natural organic matter (NOM). Resin fractionation is the most widely used technique to isolate NOM based on its hydrophobicity and hydrophilicity, these can be used to determine the treatability of NOM, however, it i...

Dissolved air flotation (DAF) was investigated in batch experiments as a treatment for semi-aerobic landfill leachate. This research was performed in three phases and focused on removing colour, COD, and turbidity. The first phase focused on saturator efficiency. The second phase evaluated leachate treatment using DAF alone, while the third phase c...
