In recent years, researchers have proposed a variety of approaches to tackle the problem of orbital debris. Debris targets are diverse, and prior knowledge may be limited, with unknown uncooperative debris targets being the most challenging category. A crucial portion of any debris capture scenario is the observation phase during the approach....

Currently, the most cost-effective and efficient method for phosphorus (P) removal from wastewater is enhanced biological P removal (EPBR) via polyphosphate-accumulating organisms (PAOs). This study integrates a literature review with genomic analysis to uncover the phylogenetic and metabolic diversity of the relevant PAOs for wastewater...

Photo-activated sludge (PAS) system aims to utilize microalgae to deliver oxygen for bacterial respiration, eliminating the need for external aeration. However, research on the treatment potential of PAS systems in the removal of nutrients is limited. In this context, a research study was devised to evaluate the possibility of developing a...

Mitigation strategies to eliminate existing space debris, such as with Active Space Debris Removal (ASDR) missions, have become increasingly important. Among the considered ASDR approaches, one involves using a net as a capturing mechanism. A fundamental requirement for any ASDR mission is that the capture process itself should not give rise to...

In this work, a one-stage dual internal circulation airlift anaerobic/anoxic/aerobic (DCAL-A2O) bioreactor was continuously operated for concurrent removal of nutrients and organics from milk processing wastewater (MPW). Special configuration of the airlift A2O bioreactor created possibility of the formation of desired anaerobic, anoxic and...

To limit global warming to 2 °C or below, the IPCC emphasizes the need for large-scale carbon dioxide removal (CDR) alongside emissions reductions. There is a growing recognition of ocean-based CDR techniques and expanded research is needed. This thesis investigated the long-term (>100 years) carbon sequestration potential of enhancing the...

Mitigation strategies which eliminate existing space debris, such as with Active Space Debris Removal (ASDR) missions, are now more important than ever regarding the ever-growing space debris population problem. One of the considered ASDR approaches uses a net as a capturing strategy. The benefits of such strategy are to allow for a large...

Slow sand filters (SSFs) are essential for ensuring microbial quality and biological stability of drinking water in the Netherlands. However, gaps exist in understanding of removal processes of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and ammonium and the effects of grain size, loading rate, and backwashing on removal in SSFs.<br/>Four lab-scale SSF...

Elevated levels of ammonia in discharged water leads to eutrophication and potential toxicity in water bodies. To combat nitrogen pollution, strict ammonium discharge limits of 1 mgNH<sub>4</sub>-N/L standard is set by the water framework directory. In many cases, current wastewater treatment facilities struggle to consistently meet this...

Lunar dust presents a serious problem for future lunar rovers. Due to the charged nature of this fine dust, it tends to stick to sensitive elements like solar panels. It is clear that a system needs to be implemented in order to remove lunar dust to keep the output power of the solar panel at a satisfactory level. This paper develops the proof...

One of the major challenges faced by future robotic and human missions to Mars and the Moon is the presence of atmospheric dust. The Lunar Zebro rover which is intended to walk on the Moon is powered by solar panel. Due to its surrounding terrain, which mostly consists of small particles, the rover may be a potential target for dust accumulation...

The Geosynchronous Large Debris Reorbiter concept is an active debris removal method proposed for defunct satellites in geostationary orbit. This method uses the electrostatic tractor (or tug), which is a spacecraft that controls a mutual electrostatic force on a target and uses this force to slowly accelerate the target towards or away from the...

Fresh water is an essential resource for life. Yet, overexploitation of water resources, rainfall shortages, and a decrease in water quality by pollution increase water scarcity worldwide. Since agricultural production consumes about 70% of the available fresh water resources, it is particularly vulnerable for water scarcity. Therefore, this...
