Is biological treatment a viable alternative for micropollutant removal in drinking water treatment processes?
In western societies, clean and safe drinking water is often taken for granted, but there are threats to drinking water resources that should not be underestimated. Contamination of drinking waterExpand

Major ionic species in size-segregated aerosols and associated gaseous pollutants at a coastal site on the Belgian North Sea.
The chemical composition of airborne particulate matter (PM) was studied at a coastal region near De Haan, Belgium, during a winter-spring and a summer campaign in 2006. The major ionic components ofExpand

Biochar affects carbon composition and stability in soil: a combined spectroscopy-microscopy study
The use of biochar can contribute to carbon (C) storage in soil. Upon addition of biochar, there is a spatial reorganization of C within soil particles, but the mechanisms remain unclear. Here, weExpand

Carbon source utilization profiles suggest additional metabolic interactions in a synergistic linuron-degrading bacterial consortium.
A bacterial triple-species consortium that synergistically metabolizes the phenylurea herbicide linuron was studied to determine whether synergy is extended toward the metabolism of other C-sources.Expand

Speciation and diurnal variation of thoracic, fine thoracic and sub-micrometer airborne particulate matter at naturally ventilated office environments
Abstract Thoracic (PM10), fine thoracic (PM2.5) and sub-micrometer (PM1) airborne particulate matter was sampled during day and night. In total, about 100 indoor and outdoor samples were collectedExpand

Size distribution and chemical properties of welding fumes of inhalable particles
Abstract The goal of the present study was to analyze the relationship between the fume formation rate, welding conditions, chemical composition of welding fume particles and their size. In the rangeExpand

Mineralization of the Common Groundwater Pollutant 2,6-Dichlorobenzamide (BAM) and its Metabolite 2,6-Dichlorobenzoic Acid (2,6-DCBA) in Sand Filter Units of Drinking Water Treatment Plants.
The intrinsic capacity to mineralize the groundwater pollutant 2,6-dichlorobenzamide (BAM) and its metabolite 2,6-dichlorobenzoic acid (2,6-DCBA) was evaluated in samples from sand filters (SFs) ofExpand

Atmospheric nitrogen fluxes at the Belgian coast: 2004-2006
Abstract Daily and seasonal variations in dry and wet atmospheric nitrogen fluxes have been studied during four campaigns between 2004 and 2006 at a coastal site of the Southern North Sea at De HaanExpand

Degradation potential of airborne particulate matter at the Alhambra monument: a Raman spectroscopic and electron probe X-ray microanalysis study†
It is well known that airborne particulate matter (APM) has an impact on our cultural heritage. A limited number of articles have been published on the sequential application of elemental andExpand

Catabolic task division between two near‐isogenic subpopulations co‐existing in a herbicide‐degrading bacterial consortium: consequences for the interspecies consortium metabolic model
Variovorax sp. WDL1 mediates hydrolysis of the herbicide linuron into 3,4-dichloroaniline (DCA) and N,O-dimethylhydroxylamine in a tripartite bacterial consortium with Comamonas testosteroni WDL7 andExpand
