Reduction of membrane fouling in membrane bioreactors (MBR) by addition of three typical filter aids (aluminum sulfate (Al(2)(SO(4))(3)), polymeric ferric sulfate (PFS) and Chitosan) was investigated. The effects of filter aids on membrane pore blocking, gel layer and cake layer resistance were analyzed respectively. Significant improvement of the(More)
The effects of addition of six types of flocculants (aluminium sulfate, ferric chloride, polyaluminium chloride, polymeric ferric sulfate, Chitosan, polyacrylamide) on mitigation of membrane fouling in membrane bioreactors (MBR) were investigated respectively. The biomasses in various MBRs were characterized by morphological properties (mean floc size(More)
We have determined the mitochondrial genome of the first Amynthas earthworm, Amynthas aspergillus (Perrier, 1872), which is a natural medical resource in Chinese traditional medicine. Its mitogenome is 15,115 bp in length containing 37 genes with the same contents and order as other sequenced earthworms. All genes are encoded by the same strand, all 13 PCGs(More)
The Pheretima complex within the Megascolecidae family is a major earthworm group. Recently, the systematic status of the Pheretima complex based on morphology was challenged by molecular studies. In this study, we carry out the first comparative mitogenomic study in oligochaetes. The mitogenomes of 15 earthworm species were sequenced and compared with(More)
Individual and combined effects of enrofloxacin (EF) and cadmium (Cd) on the earthworm Eisenia fetida at environmentally relevant concentrations were investigated. EF is a veterinary antibiotic; Cd is an impurity in phosphatic fertiliser. For both, residues may accumulate in farm soils. In laboratory tests, over 98% of spiked EF was adsorbed by farm soils,(More)
The earthworm Eisenia fetida was exposed to artificial soil supplemented with 18-crown-6 (1,4,7,10,13,16-hexaoxacyclooctadecane) to investigate its effects on earthworm mortality, growth, avoidance, burrowing behavior and respiration. The results revealed that 18-crown-6 had the potential to negatively affect the behavior of earthworms. The 7-d LC50 was 585(More)
We have determined the mitochondrial genome of the first Pheretimoid earthworm, Metaphire vulgaris (Chen, 1930). This mitogenome is 15,061 bp in length containing 37 genes typical of other annelid. All genes are encoded by the same strand, ATP8 is not adjacent to ATP6, all 13 PCGs use ATG as a start codon. These features are consistent with first determined(More)
Rural sewage treatment is now paid more and more attention in China. Vermifiltration technology could be one of the practical options under the review of previous studies. It showed good removal rates of contaminants on small to pilot scales for short-term tests. However, the impacts of season, temperature or other unknown factors are usually not taken into(More)
Among oligochaetes, the Pheretima complex within the Megascolecidae is a major earthworm group. Recently, however, the systematics of the Pheretima complex based on morphology are challenged by molecular studies. Since little comparative analysis of earthworm complete mitochondrial genomes has been reported yet, we sequenced mitogenomes of four pheretimoid(More)
A laboratory-scale intermittently aerated membrane bioreactor was applied to treat synthetic household wastewater characterized with low organic matter and high nitrogen concentration. Experimental results showed that at the condition of HRT 12 h, aeration/non-aeration cycle 30 min/60 min and a very long SRT, more than 90% of COD and close 100% ammonia(More)
