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...

Palm oil is a popular ingredient in domestic products. The palm oil industry has been growing rapidly over the past decades, so that the amount of palm oil mill effluent (POME) generated from the palm oil production has been increasing as well. The anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) is a treatment solution that can remove organic pollutants...

The hydrolysis of sludge solids especially for difficultly degradable sludges such as WAS is not fully understood, yet. The first-order hydrolysis rate was shown to function well for most easily degradable sludges and soluble substrates. This description for substrate hydrolysis in the context of anaerobic digestion has the benefit of being very...

Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) is an attractive medium for biogas production in an anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) because of its high lipid content. Long-chain fatty acid (LCFA) accumulation is toxic and considered harmful for the biological performance within the reactor as they can be absorbed by biomass particles causing sludge...

The presence of high levels of arsenic in groundwater, an otherwise preferred drinking water source, urges the need for innovative and highly efficient (in terms of chemical use and energy consumption) technologies to remove arsenic during drinking water treatment. This research focussed on embedding iron electrocoagulation (Fe-EC) within a...

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...

Palm oil mill effluent (POME) is a high organic pollution produced during the palm oil mill process, with a brownish color and stingy odor at high temperatures. Given the popularity in palm oil output over the years, the massive amount of POME causes growing concern. The enforcement of wastewater discharge standards and laws, as well as energy...

Fouling is the main limitation to the application of membrane bioreactors (MBRs). Understanding the complexity of fouling has led to better decision making for design and operation of MBRs. However, studies have shown contradictory results of the impact of sludge characteristics on membrane filtration performance and fouling propensity. The...

Wastewater discharged from the domestic household has proven to be a potential source for resource recovery. Apart from wastewater, kitchen organic waste contains an enormous amount of energy in terms of organic content and nutrients such as TKN and TPH. Now that the disposal of waste into landfills is prohibited in most parts of Europe, one of...

In palm oil extraction process, a large amount of lipids are emulsified in waste stream and the hot, brownish palm oil mill effluent (POME) is generated. In this study, the membrane technology was proposed to test the feasibility of direct ultrafiltration (UF) of POME by using a-Al2O3 and PVDF membranes, and to figure out the recovery rates of...

This study investigates the many dynamics of the Manyame Catchment and comes up with recommendations on how to adapt or become more resilient to the risks at hand. The bad politics and forthcoming economic situation of Zimbabwe has led to instability and dramatic inflation over the last decade. This has resulted in a terrible investment climate,...

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...

Water as a coolant for industrial products or processes is widely used. Efficient operation of Open Recirculating Cooling Water Systems (ORCWS) relies on controlled cooling water conditioning programs that prevent corrosion, fouling, scaling and microbial growth. Water intensive industries feel greater pressure to decrease their water demand as...

The wastewater infrastructure in Singapore is undergoing a major revamp, which includes the construction of a new water reclamation plant (WRP) in Tuas. This plant aims to maximise the energy recovered from wastewater, with the ultimate aim of achieving energy self-sufficiency. The Integrated Validation Plant (IVP) is a 1000 m3/day pilot plant...

The necessary removal of organically bound nitrogen and ammonium from sewage conventionally requires energy for aeration and reduces the potential biogas production in the following anaerobic stage due to the required carbon source for de-nitrification. It has recently been demonstrated that fuel cells can generate electricity, using ammonia as...

The marine/ brackish recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) is a sustainable and environment-friendly cultivating system to meet the increasing demand of aquatic animal protein for the human consumption. However, the increasing amount of aquaculture waste becomes problematic for further application and demands much research attention on it. To...

Aerobic granular sludge/Nereda technology has proven to be more beneficial compared to activated sludge systems. Until now not much research has been spend on treatment of Nereda excess sludge (NES). In this study the biodegradability of NES is investigated, combined with thermal pressure hydrolysis (TPH) as pre-treatment method and the...

Phosphorus depletion is an emerging and serious global environmental issue. At this moment, research and policy discussion on phosphorus scarcity is still limited. This research investigates the possibilities of phosphorus recovery by controlled precipitation of struvite from digested sludge. At Waternet’s wastewater treatment plant Amsterdam...
