Activated sludge wastewater treatment processes are difficult to be controlled because of their complex and nonlinear behavior, however, he control of the dissolved oxygen level in the reactors plays an important role in the operation of the facility. For this reason a new pproach is studied in this paper using simulated case-study approach: model(More)
PURPOSE Industrial wastewater flow caused operational difficulties in the wastewater treatment plant in Debrecen, Hungary. Bioaugmentation was successfully applied to maintain effluent quality in the periods when wastewater of high starch content was accepted, but, at the end of 2008, the nitrification capacity of the plant decreased considerably due to(More)
GOALS The objective of the paper is to illustrate the solution of a chronic problem occurring in a wastewater treatment facility with a capacity of 12,000 inhabitant equivalent. A drastic phosphorus concentration increase (two or three times higher than the Hungarian limit of 1 mg/l) was observed in the wastewater treatment facility for a long time (12-24(More)
The Institute of Environmental Engineering at the University of Pannonia has undertaken the challenge to develop an online environmental information system. This system is able to receive and process the collected environmental data via Internet. The authors have attached importance to the presentation of the data and have included other comprehensible(More)
The bonding of mandelic acid enantiomers has been studied on benzene-leucine, dinitrobenzene-leucine and dinitrobenzene-phenylalanine type chiral stationary phases connected to zeolite A supports. The pi-donor, pi-acceptor and H-bonding interactions responsible for diastereomer pair formations can be studied under quasi in situ chromatographic conditions by(More)
Airborne photographs can be expediently used in environmental monitoring; e.g., in the surveillance of the state of natural reserve areas, such as wetlands; or in the measurement and mapping of pollutants, such as oil spills on a lake or sea. A new and cost-effective platform of airborne remote sensing is the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) or drone. In this(More)
One of the issues of the Hungarian Water Management Strategy is the improvement and upgrading of the water of Lake Balaton. The Water Framework Directive (WFD) specifies and sets forth the achievement of the good ecological status. However, the assessment of the water quality of the lake as a complex system requires a comprehensive monitoring and evaluation(More)
The Water Framework Directive aims at reaching the good ecological status of the surface and ground water bodies (László et al. Microchem J 85(1):65-71, 2007). The paper deals with quality evaluation of waters with special focus on the water chemistry parameters as defined in the Water Framework Directive and pertaining legal regulations. The purpose of(More)
