There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

Dunea’s drinking water treatment plants (DWTPs) want to reach the new arsenic (As) companytarget of &lt; 1 µg/L, due to uncertainties on toxicity at the current WHO, European and Dutch guideline of 10 µg/L. The aim of this research was to lower the As concentration in Dunea’s effluent<br/>to &lt; 1 µg/L by improving our system understanding and...

Corrosion and fouling are considered major factors affecting the performance of water-steam cycles (WSC). Flow-accelerated corrosion (FAC), present in feed and condensate systems, is a well known corrosion mechanism, eroding and dissolving the protective magnetite layers. Fouling of the boiler, by suspended magnetite particles, is partly...

Due to the quick growth in human population and subsequently a high rate of urbanization, fresh water sources are under pressure. Estimated 1.8 billion people drink water from potentially sewage-contaminated sources and also the presence of antibiotic resistant bacteria in sewage has made the improper treatment of wastewater effluent an emerging...

Boron-doped diamond (BDD) is an electrode material applied in high end advanced oxidation processes and electrochemical sensing. BDD has a low background current, is robust and has a high affinity for the production of oxidizing radicals. BDD shows better degradation rates compared to competing electrode materials, and can also be used to detect...

The wide application of pesticides, pharmaceuticals and personal care products cause an increasing contamination of aquatic systems. Adsorption by zeolites is a promising process to remove target organic micro-pollutants (OMPs) selectively from water bodies. In order to have a sustainable adsorption process, restoring the adsorption capacity of...

The presence of organic and inorganic contaminants in aquatic ecosystem has been threat to public health and environment. To produce drinking water, removal of natural organic matter has been of importance due to formation of DBPs. Of the many available treatments, ion exchange (IEX) has the potential to remove natural organic matter (NOM)....

The presence of extracellular DNA (eDNA) containing antibiotic resistance genes in the treated wastewater effluents can contribute to the spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) among receiving waters. The removal of cell associated antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) has been widely studied using advance treatments. However, these treatments...

In drinking water production, natural organic matter (NOM) is sometimes removed using ion exchange (IEX) resin. This treatment method has a limitation based on the exchanging capacity on the resin. Therefore, the resin needs to be regenerated when it is saturated with adsorbed NOM which leads to the production of brine. In general, NaCl is used...

In the context of steering product formation in anaerobic digestion systems, the present thesis work elaborates on the potential role of elevated CO2 partial pressures as an environmental driver that may influence end-product selectivity from methane towards compounds from the carboxylic platform. As an emerging field of research, organic acid...

In a WWTP operating with full scale mesophilic digestion, a thermophilic digestion pilot and a digestate ammonia stripping pilot were installed. Benefits of the aforementioned sludge treatment processes, such as energy and nutrient recovery, are extensively recognized. However, drawbacks, such as deficient sludge dewatering, are amply...
