At speeds roughly between five and ten thousand km/h, hypersonic aircraft offer the promise of an extremely fast means of transport. Growing concerns about climate warming, however, direct attention to sustainability. This thesis focuses on atmospheric composition and radiation changes by considering a range of individual hypersonic aircraft...

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...

Organic micropollutants (OMPs) that occur in the aquatic environment at trace levels are emerging concerns to society. Domestic wastewater is an important source. OMPs end up in surface water and groundwater via conventional municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), penetrating drinking water. Comprising pharmaceuticals, personal care...

Digestate is a rich source of nutrients that can be applied in agricultural fields as fertilizer or irrigation water. However, most of the research about application of digestate have focused on its agronomic properties and neglected the potential harm of the presence of contaminants of emerging concern (CECs). Aadvanced oxidation processes ...

The resilient growth of air travel demands a comprehensive understanding of the climate effects from aviation emissions. The current level of knowledge of the environmental repercussions of CO2 emissions is considerably higher than that of non-CO2 emissions, which includes nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur oxides (SOx), other aerosols like black...

Organic micropollutants (OMPs) that occur in the aquatic environment are an emerging concern. Adsorption by granular zeolites and regenerating exhausted zeolites by gaseous ozone is an innovative and advanced treatment technology for removing OMPs from wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluent. In this study, WWTP effluent spiked with eleven...

At wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), additional steps are introduced for removal of organic micropollutants (OMPs) from the treated effluents, especially pharmaceutical residues. At the same time, a new concern is emerging: antibiotic resistance (AR). This research studied the effect of ozonation, coagulation and granular activated carbon ...

Depletion of stratospheric ozone, and the associated increase in population exposure to UV radiation, is an environmental consequence of high-altitude, supersonic aviation. Assessments of the impacts of emissions from subsonic aircraft – which fly at lower altitudes – have instead shown that they produce a net increase, rather than decrease,...

As antibiotics now save millions of human and animal lives annually, the World Health Organisation (WHO, 2019) declared Antibiotic Resistance (AR) as the number five most dangerous risk to global health. Several researchers mention WWTPs to be an important source for AR as the growth of bacteria is stimulated in an environment with a selective...

During drinking water treatment, advanced oxidation process (AOP) with O3 and H2O2 may result in by-products, residual H2O2 and BrO3−. The water containing H2O2 and BrO3− often flows into subsequent granular activated carbon (GAC) filters. A concentrated H2O2 solution can be used as GAC modification reagent at 60 °C to improve its adsorption...

Advanced technologies to remove organic micropollutants (OMPs) from municipal wastewater have gained much attention over the last decades. Adsorption by zeolites is one of these technologies. In this study, the regeneration performance of well-tailored granular zeolites loaded with OMPs was evaluated. The selected OMPs were categorized into...

Due to the importance of water for human survival and scarcity of freshwater resources, wastewater treatment has become very important recently. Some persistent pollutants, such as pesticides, are not removed even after multiple conventional wastewater treatment techniques. Advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) are one of the novel techniques that...

The recent COVID-19 pandemic with its countermeasures, e.g. lock-downs, resulted in decreases in emissions of various trace gases. Here we investigate the changes of ozone over Europe associated with these emission reductions using a coupled global/regional chemistry climate model. We conducted and analysed a business as usual and a...

Quantitative measurements of aerosol absorptive properties, e.g., the absorbing aerosol optical depth (AAOD) and the single scattering albedo (SSA), are important to reduce uncertainties of aerosol climate radiative forcing assessments. Currently, global retrievals of AAOD and SSA are mainly provided by the ground-based aerosol robotic...

Surface morphology of adherends is an important factor to take into consideration when studying and improving the performance of an adhesive bonded joint. In this study, the adhesion performance three different surface morphologies of Selective Laser Melted (SLM) Ti6Al4V was studied. The three surface morphologies were created by manufacturing...

In this study, different surface pretreatments were applied to clean and activate titanium alloy surfaces. The samples were subjected to grit blasting treatments using two different pressures and afterwards, a UV/Ozone treatment was applied at different times to study the wettability and surface oxidation of the titanium samples.

Continuous development of industry and civilization has led to changes in composition, texture and toxicity of waste water due to the wide range of pollutants being present. Considering that the conventional wastewater treatment methods are insufficient for removing micropollutants and nutrients to a high level, other, alternative, treatment...
