Papadopoulou, MARIANNA (author)
Nutrient recovery has lately been a concerning topic regarding the environmental friendliness of it and the high availability of technologies. Ammonia is one of the main compounds in reject water that could be recovered and utilized further in the agricultural sector. Several methods have been found, including conventional electrodialysis, in...

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...

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...

Pulp and paper industries are water-intensive industries and composed of complex production processes. Untreated pulping wastewater is very toxic and lethal to aquatic life if discharged untreated. Anaerobic treatment technology has gained interest in treating these types of wastewater by reducing organic compounds. This thesis research aimed to...

Natural organic matter is one of the key components to remove from source water during drinking water production. NOM not only negatively influences the colour, taste and smell of the water, it also decreases the effectiveness of common water treatment steps such as (membrane) filtration and UV desinfectation. A big fraction of natural organic...

The aim of this research was to evaluate the feasibility of direct hollow fiber nanofiltration membranes for drinking water purposes. The experiments were performed on the dNF40 pilot provided by NXF. The fouling potential and the ion retention of the dNF40 pilot were determined by continuous filtration experiments using raw IJssellake water...

Sathish, Samyuktha (author)
In an aerobic granular sludge (AGS) reactor treating urban wastewater, nutrient removal depends on the availability of carbon source. Domestic wastewater consists of 40-60% of slowly biodegradable complex substrates, out of which proteins form a major fraction. Despite this, little is known about the mechanisms of protein degradation in AGS....

Industrial and municipal wastewaters often contain a high concentration of NH4+<br/>To prevent excessive discharge into the environment, these wastewaters need to be treated. Electrodialysis has been shown to be a suitable technique for the removal and recovery of NH4+ from both synthetic and real wastewaters such as digestate rejection water...

Zeolites can be used for the adsorption of organic micropollutants (OMPs) from water. In this research, the potential applications of zeolite granules for OMP removal in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) were discovered. The adsorption of 18 target OMPs by zeolite granules was fully studied in batch and column experiments. The adsorption...

Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a promising technology to process protein-rich wastewater. However, incomplete protein degradation during the acidification of organic matter is frequently observed when carbohydrates are present. Literature reports little information to explain the mechanisms behind this phenomenon. This MSc study investigated the...

Comammox bacteria are capable of catalysing the full nitrification pathway – oxidation of ammonium to nitrate – and have been encountered in many ecosystems recently (Lawson &amp; Lücker, 2018). What the ecological role of comammox bacteria is in hypoxic enrichment cultures remains unclear. Based on the thermodynamics and biochemistry of known...
