With the rapid development of nanotechnology, there is an increasing risk of human and environmental exposure to nanotechnology-based materials. However, the data on the potential environmental effects of nanoparticles are scarce. The aim of this study is to assess the effect of particle size and crystal structure (anatase and rutile) of titanium dioxide on(More)
The aim of this work is to study the performances of removal of hexavalent chromium from aqueous solution by three different oxy-hydroxides: hematite, goethite and alpha-alumina. Batch experiments were conducted to measure the effects on adsorption of Cr(VI) of different parameters such as pH of the medium, ionic strength, and initial concentration. Results(More)
The management of dredged sediments is a priority issue in the Mediterranean sea where sediments are historically polluted. The aims of this study were to evaluate the toxicity of port sediment samples and the effect of three mineral additives (hematite, zerovalent iron (ZVI) and natural zeolite (NZ)) on sediment elutriate toxicity. Four sediments (A, B, C(More)
This work investigates the ecotoxicological evaluation of contaminated dredged sediments from French Mediterranean navy harbour (A), commercial port (B) and two composite specimens (C) and (D) coming from the mixture of A and B with other port sediments. The toxicity of elutriates from these sediments is estimated using embryo-toxicity test, Microtox® solid(More)
Stabilization of marine dredged sediments contaminated with multi-elements is a challenging task in choosing the appropriate sorbent and application dosage. The present study investigates the possibility of using bauxite residues (Bauxaline® and Bauxsol) as amendment for the treatment of contaminated sediment. A pilot scale experiment was conducted for(More)
Management of marine dredged sediments polluted with trace elements is prime issue in the French Mediterranean coast. The polluted sediments possess ecological threats to surrounding environment on land disposal. Therefore, stabilization of contaminants in multi-contaminated marine dredged sediment is a promising technique. Present study aimed to assess the(More)
Trace element pollution of marine dredged sediments is an emerging problem all over the world. Comparing to other wastes, trace elements stabilization is more difficult both due to the wide range of contaminants present in the marine sediments and their inherent physicochemical properties. In this study, a pilot-scale experiment was performed to stabilize(More)
The aim of this work is to assess the potential ecotoxicological effects of contaminated sediments treated with mineral additives. The Microtox solid phase test was used to evaluate the effect of mineral additives on the toxicity of sediment suspensions. Four Mediterranean port sediments were studied after dredging and bioremediation: Sample A from navy(More)
The ecotoxicological effect of dredged sediments was estimated by embryo-larval toxicity of the oyster Crassosstrea gigas in sediment elutriates (filtered and unfiltered). The study covers the main ports from the French Mediterranean coast. Composted sediments from a navy harbour (A), a commercial port (B) and two composite specimens (C and D) obtained(More)
This work investigates arsenic mobility, bioavailability and toxicity in marine port sediments using chemical sequential extraction and laboratory toxicity tests. Sediment samples were collected from two different Mediterranean ports, one highly polluted with arsenic and other inorganic and organic pollutants (Estaque port (EST)), and the other one, less(More)
