Red mud was evaluated as an alternative skeleton builder combined with Fenton's reagent in sewage sludge conditioning. The results show that red mud combined with Fenton's reagent showed good conditioning capability with the pH of the filtrate close to neutrality, indicating that red mud acted as a neutralizer as well as a skeleton builder when jointly used(More)
The effect of organic loading rate on granular SBR was investigated. When the organic loading rate gradually reduced from 1.8 kg/(m3 x d) to 1.575, 1.125 and 0.67 kg/(m3 x d), the characteristics of granular sludge changed greatly, including disintegration of granules, washout of sludge, reduce of granulation rate and settleability of granule, shift of(More)
A novel continuous-flow bioreactor with aerobic granular sludge and self-forming dynamic membrane (CGSFDMBR) was developed for efficient wastewater treatment. Under continuous-flow operation, aerobic granular sludge was successfully cultivated and characterized with small particle size of about 0.1-1.0mm, low settling velocity of about 15-25 m/h, loose(More)
Conditioning sewage sludge with Fenton's reagent and skeleton builders has been proved to be an effective mean to achieve deep dewatering. This work aimed to give a comprehensive insight into the mechanism involved. The results show that significant synergistic effect existed between Fenton's reagent and skeleton builders. With the optimum dosage, water(More)
Physical conditioners, often known as skeleton builders, are commonly used to improve the dewaterability of sewage sludge. This study evaluated a novel joint usage of Fenton's reagent and skeleton builders, referred to as the F-S inorganic composite conditioner, focusing on their efficacies and the optimization of the major operational parameters. The(More)
Poly-zinc silicate (PZSS) is a new type of coagulant with cationic polymer synthesized by polysilicic acid and zinc sulfate. It has been used in several sorts of wastewaters treatment, but not used in oily wastewater treatment. In this study, we investigated the coagulation/flocculation of oil and suspended solids in heavy oil wastewater (HOW) by PZSS and(More)
TiO(2) film deposited on glassy carbon electrode surface was prepared via the liquid phase deposition (LPD). The deposited TiO(2) film before and after calcination was characterized with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Based on the high photoelectrochemical activity of calcined LPD TiO(2) film, the photoelectrocatalytic(More)
Photoactive material and recognition element are two crucial factors which determine the sensitivity and selectivity of the photoelectrochemical (PEC) sensor. Herein we developed a novel PEC aptamer sensor for the specific detection of kanamycin using water-dispersible graphite-like carbon nitride (w-g-C3N4) as visible light-active material and aptamer as(More)
ZnFe2O4 nanoparticles (ZFNPs) were developed as catalyst for the degradation of benzotriazole (BTA) by heterogeneous photoelectro-Fenton (PE-Fenton) like process. ZFNPs were prepared by a co-precipitation process and then characterized with transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray fluorescence (XRF), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and BET surface area. Using(More)
Sodium acetate as carbon source, tolerance to organic loading rate (OLR) by aerobic granular sludge in a cyclic aerobic granular reactor (CAGR) was investigated by gradually increasing the influent COD. AGS could maintain stability in the continuous flow reactor under OLR⩽15kg/m(3)d in the former 65 days, and SVI, granulation rate, average particle size and(More)
