The demand for reactive nitrogen, i.e., ammonia (NH3), is constantly growing as the global population grows, especially in the nitrogen (N) fertiliser production sector. Simultaneously, the reactive nitrogen in residual streams, i.e., mainly ammonium (NH4+) and nitrate (NO3-), has caused serious environmental issues, e.g., eutrophication and...

The interactions between organic and inorganic particles in the context of flocculation is an on-going topic of research. Most current researches do not distinguish between the effects of EPS (produced by microorganisms) and living microorganisms (like algae). In this study, the effect of salinity, EPS and living algae on sediment...

Bovine serum albumin (BSA) and casein (CAS) were used in batch tests to compare the protein degradation in the presence and absence of carbohydrates and volatile fatty acids (VFAs). The modified Gompertz model was applied to estimate reaction rates. The results showed that deamination was the rate-limiting step, with a rate ranging between 2...

Treating protein-rich wastewater using cost-effective and simple-structured single-stage reactors presents several challenges. In this study, we applied an anaerobic sequencing batch reactor (AnSBR) to treat protein-rich wastewater from a slaughterhouse. We focused on identifying the key factors influencing the removal of chemical oxygen...

Flocculation is an important process in fine cohesive sediment transport that still requires investigation as it is a complex process, involving the aggregation, break-up and reconformation of mineral and biological particles.<br/>Fine cohesive sediments are found in rivers, estuaries and their adjacent areas. With the rapid economic development...

Abstract: Protein-rich agro-industrial waste streams are high in organic load and represent a major environmental problem. Anaerobic digestion is an established technology to treat these streams; however, retardation of protein degradation is frequently observed when carbohydrates are present. This study investigated the mechanism of the...

The variation of the floc population in the Changjiang Estuary has been studied for both winter and summer season as a function of the presence of living (micro)algae. The influence of algae has been characterized through the use of the chlorophyll-a concentration to suspended sediment concentration (CC/SSC) ratio. Two whole tidal cycle...

Total ammoniacal nitrogen (TAN) is considered to be a pollutant, but is also a versatile resource. This review presents an overview of the TAN recovery potentials from nitrogen (N)-loaded residual streams by discussing the sources, recovery technologies and potential applications. The first section of the review addresses the fate of TAN...

The measurement of distance plays an integral part in many aspects of modern societies. In this paper an integrated mode-locked laser on a chip is used for distance measurement based on mode-resolved interferometry. The emission from the on-chip source with a repetition rate of 2.5 GHz and a spectral bandwidth of 3 nm is coupled into a...

The flocculation process and modelling of suspended sediment transport in estuarine regions is a hot topic in estuarine science[Winterwerp, 1999]. The flocculation is greatly influenced by biochemical parameters[De Lucas Pardo, 2014]. In this paper, we analyse the impact of algae on the processes of flocculation in the Yangtze Estuary, and we...

The heating of drinking water in households contributes significantly to the emission of greenhouse gases. As a water utility aiming to operate at a climate neutral level by 2020, Waternet needs to reduce its CO2 emission by 53?kton?yr?1. To contribute to this ambition, a pilot project was carried out in Uilenstede, Amstelveen, the Netherlands,...
