Organic micropollutants (OMPs) enter the aquatic environment via municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). As conventional WWTPs have limited capacity for the removal of OMPs, additional processes are required, like ozone - granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration. A specific lay-out of this process is the O3-STEP® process, in which the...

Abstract: Anionic polymers, such as heparin, have been widely applied in the chemical and medical fields, particularly for binding proteins (e.g., fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF-2) and histones). However, the current animal-based production of heparin brings great risks, including resource shortages and product contamination. Recently,...

The aerobic granular sludge (AGS) process treats wastewater with a significantly lower footprint and energy consumption compared to conventional activated sludge systems. Nevertheless, there is still potential for optimizing its performance, and mathematical models are most valuable tools to this end. Aeration energy consumption deserves...

Poly-hydroxy-alkanoate (PHA) is an intracellular polymer that can be used as an energy and carbon source by microorganisms. Measuring PHA is important for understanding the microbial metabolism of enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) and aerobic granular sludge (AGS) systems. There is a commonly used method to measure PHA, which is...

Voxels are cells on a 3D regular grid. Voxel-based scenes have many applications, including frequent use in simulations or games. Over the years, the field of high-resolution voxel scenes has progressed significantly, allowing for compressing and real-time editing of high-resolution scenes. This possibility of editing high-resolution scenes led...

Magnetic Particle Tracking (MPT) is a relatively new non-invasive measurement technique which is often used to study dense granular flow. Its basic principle relies on tracking the movement of a single magnetic tracer by means of measuring the magnetic field strength at a suitable distance from the tracer. By assumption of a magnetic dipole...

In the pursuit of reducing carbon footprint and in view of increasing energy prices, energy efficiency is more important than ever before. Batch-wise operated aerobic granular sludge reactors consume up to 50% less energy compared to conventional activated sludge systems because pumping energy is reduced and mixing equipment is not needed....

Photogranules are a novel wastewater treatment technology that can utilize the sun's energy to treat water with lower energy input and have great potential for nutrient recovery applications. They have been proven to efficiently remove nitrogen and carbon but show lower conversion rates for phosphorus compared to established treatment systems...

This paper presents data from an initial development stage of an 'umbrella anchor' concept. The anchor can be pushed into sand deposit in a folded arrangement to reduce installation loads. When a pull-out load is applied to the mooring line, the anchor deploys to create a large embedded plate anchor. Physical modelling was carried out in...
