The excessive nitrogen in waterbodies, often caused by the discharge of ammonia-rich wastewaters, leads to eutrophication, disrupting aquatic ecosystems. Wastewater treatment plants play an important role in the removal and recovery of nitrogen from wastewater streams, thereby preventing pollution. Air stripping in combination with acid...

Removal of ammonium from simulated ammonium salt solutions was done using bipolar membrane electrodialysis (BPMED), without the use of chemicals. The effect of spacer thickness and open area on the overall energy consumption of BPMED to transport ammonium from the diluate was assessed in batch experiments. The electrochemical energy consumption...

Producing green hydrogen can be done using alkaline water electrolysis. Recycling water might help to fulfil the large water demand of hydrogen production facilities. In fertiliser production, steam condensate could be a recyclable water source for hydrogen production. This condensate is relatively clean as its main contaminant is a small...

Aromatic compounds have always been of concern regarding their toxicity to living organisms, including microorganisms. With more anthropogenic activities (e.g. coal gasification), the need for feasible treatment of industrial effluents is highly prioritised. With the anaerobic degradation process being a competitive solution, these compounds’...

This study aims to explore hydrogen production via alkaline water electrolysis using municipal effluent. The experiments were conducted in a flow cell electrolyzer using carbon fibre and Ni-foam as the anode, with another Ni-foam electrode employed as the cathode for all experiments. Synthetically prepared effluent and real municipal effluent...

The presence of organic micro-pollutants (OMPs) in water bodies has become a major hindrance to protecting water quality in recent years. One of the main sources of OMPs is wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluents. One of the most recent Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) technology is photo-electrocatalysis (PEC), which can produce radicals...

In the recent decade, a wide range of emerging contaminants (ECs) has been regularly detected in the wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) effluent, surface water and even groundwater. Among all these ECs, organic micropollutants (OMPs) are receiving increasing attention due to their characteristics of low concentration, difficulty in degradation...

In this research, a few initiatives were completed with practical industrial information and water samples from Heineken®. A Python model was built for an imaginary bottle washer, and tested with difference operational variables under the four testing scenarios. Based on the operational information fromthe Spanish brewery, a second Python model...

Oceanic CO2 capture technology can be used as a negative emission technology, or pre-treatment to reduce inorganic fouling (i.e., scaling) potential when further processing seawater. In this work CO2 from (synthetic) seawater was captured electrochemically via bipolar membrane electrodialysis. Although previous studies showed promising results...

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...

This thesis constitutes a part of the "IMPRESS" project which is aiming at the production of bio-plastics by utilizing hemicellulosic hydrolysates. The hydrolysate stream, after following the steps of acid hydrolysis and neutralization, consists of monosaccharides (C5/C6 sugars), salt and sugar degradation products. The C5/C6 sugars need to be...

The abundant presence of nitrogen in natural waters can be a threat to both humans and environment. Therefore, municipal and industrial wastewater streams need to be treated before their disposal in the environment. Currently used biological and physical-chemical treatment methods have drawbacks such as high greenhouse gas emissions, high energy...

Resource recovery from waste streams is indispensable to shifting from a linear economy to a circular economy. Industrial concentrate is a waste stream that is actively researched to explore and expand the prospects of resource recovery. Strontium (Sr), an alkaline earth metal, while found regularly in concentrate streams has not been a focus...

Brine streams from industry is a burden to the environment if not disposed properly. “Zero liquid discharge” (ZLD) is an ideal way of converting saline streams from waste to resource through multiple membrane-based or thermal-based treatment technologies. The utilization of the recovered resource minimizes both costs and environmental impacts....
