This study was conducted at Felda Jengka 8, Pahang in Malaysia to find out the contents of heavy metals in palm oil soil and fruit farm soil adjacent to estimate the pollution level. Four types of selected heavy metals namely Cu, Zn, Pb and Ni in different soil sampling point were collected in triplicates and analysed by Inductively Coupled Plasma...

Heavy metals occur naturally in soil, but the agricultural, mining and industrial activities could enhance their concentration in soil. The application of chemical fertilisers in the agricultural soil can increase the level of heavy metals. This study was carried out in an oil palm plantation to identify presence of selected heavy metals in soil an...

Correctional centres (prisons) are one of the few non-residential indoor environments where smoking is still permitted. However, few studies have investigated indoor air quality (IAQ) in these locations. We quantified the level of inmate and staff exposure to secondhand smoke (SHS), including particle number (PN) count, and we assessed the impact o...

Long-term measurements of particle number size distribution (PNSD) produce a very large number of observations and their analysis requires an efficient approach in order to produce results in the least possible time and with maximum accuracy. Clustering techniques are a family of sophisticated methods that have been recently employed to analyse PNS...

Article
It has not yet been established whether the spatial variation of particle number concentration (PNC) within a microscale environment can have an effect on exposure estimation results. In general, the degree of spatial variation within microscale environments remains unclear, since previous studies have only focused on spatial variation within macro...

The concentrations of metals (Fe, Pb, Zn, Cu, Ni and Cd) in street dust samples were collected from differing areas (residential 1 and 2-low traffic density, industrial 1 and 2-medium traffic density, and, commercial 1 and 2-high traffic density) in Shah Alam city. The samples concentrations were determined by inductively coupled plasma-optical emi...

Adsorption of dye is an alternative technology to remove colour from wastewater. Activated carbon prepared from low cost palm oil fiber has been utilized as the adsorbent for the removal of basic dyes from aqueous solution. A basic dye, Methylene Blue has been used as the adsorbate. Experiments were conducted at different pH, different adsorbent do...

Analisis kuantiti dan komposisi sisa pepejal merupakan perkara asas di dalam perancangan perkhidmatan pengurusan sisa pepejal. Tujuan kertas kerja ini adalah untuk melaporkan hasil kajian persampelan sisa pepejal di tiga kawasan kediaman yang berlainan jenis: perumahan kos tinggi, Taman Melaka Perdana; perumahan kos sederhana, Taman Beringin dan pe...

Air samples were collected from 2004 to 2005 using four-staged filter packs at an urban site Petaling Jaya (PJ) and a rural- agricultural site Tanah Rata (TR). The samples were analysed for reactive gases consisting of NH3, HNO3, HCl and SO2 while the aerosol components were analysed for SO4 2- , NO3 − , Cl − , Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+ and NH4 +. For bo...
