Two hollow fiber membrane bioreactors (HFMBRs) inoculated with activated sludge were used in series to biodegrade continuously mixed xylene. The influence of gas residence time (τ) and mass loading rate (LR) on elimination capacity (EC) of the mixed xylene was investigated. A maximum elimination capacity (EC(max,v)) of 466gm(-3)h(-1) was achieved at τ=10s(More)
Exposure to ambient black carbon (BC) is associated with adverse health effects. Black carbon levels display large spatial and temporal variability in many settings, such as cities and rural households where fossil fuel and biomass, respectively, are commonly burned for transportation, heat and cooking. This paper addresses the optimization of the(More)
A study on a commuter's exposure to black carbon (BC) in five different traffic modes (taxi, bus, subway, cycling and walking) was conducted in Xuhui District, Shanghai. A commuter's real-time exposure concentrations were recorded by MicroAeth AE51 BC monitors, and the average BC exposure concentration and inhalation dose were analyzed. Data collected by(More)
Membrane bioreactors are gaining interest for the control of contaminated air streams. In this study, the removal of toluene and n-hexane vapours in a hollow fibre membrane bioreactor (HFMB) was investigated. The focus was on quantifying the possible interactions occurring during the simultaneous biotreatment of the two volatile pollutants. Two lab-scale(More)
This work focused on quantifying the total mercury (HgT) and major ion concentrations in snow samples to understand the importance of this pathway and sources of Hg deposited in Shanghai, China. Rare snow event samples were collected at 26 sites within the city of Shanghai on February 18, 2006, January 27, 2008 and January 20, 2011. The sites were(More)
A year-long simultaneous observation of PM1 and PM2.5 were conducted at ECUST campus in Shanghai, the compositions were analyzed and compared. Results showed that PM2.5 was dominated by PM1 on clear days while the contribution of PM1-2.5 to PM2.5 increased on haze days, indicating that PM2.5 should be given priority to characterize or predict haze(More)
PM2.5 samples were collected in south Shanghai from November 2013 to October 2014. The species of particulate bounded mercury (PBM), including hydrochloric soluble particle-phase mercury (HPM), element soluble particle-phase mercury (EPM) and residual soluble particle-phase mercury (RPM), were determined in PM2.5. The chemical composition of PM2.5 including(More)
Daily PM2.5 samples were obtained at the site of East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) in urban Shanghai during 2009-2010 and 2011-2012. The temporal variations of PM2.5 and its chemical compositions including secondary inorganic aerosol (SIA) and carbonaceous components were studied. The concentrations of PM2.5 were (94.04±52.17) μg/m3(More)
The personal exposure of 51 graduate students to PM2.5 and BC in Shanghai was evaluated using portable PM2.5 and BC samplers. Global positioning systems and activity diaries were used to evaluate the microenvironments/activities that contributed to the total daily exposure of the participants, as well as to accurately estimate the PM2.5 and BC doses(More)
Humic-like substances (Hulis), the hydrophobic part of water-soluble organic compounds, have been recognized to play important roles in environmental behavior of PM2.5 in atmosphere. In this study, Hulis and other components of PM2.5, collected in urban Shanghai from September 2013 to August 2014 were analyzed. The annual average concentration of Hulis(More)
