This project demonstrated the biofiltration of a trichloroethylene (TCE)-contaminated airstream generated by air stripping groundwater obtained from several wells located at the Anniston Army Depot, Anniston, AL. The effects of several critical process variables were investigated to evaluate technical and economic feasibility, define operating limits and(More)
A semi-batch bubble column was used to evaluate the effect of ozonation on the removal of acid yellow 17 dye from water. Results indicate that ozonation is very effective at removing acid yellow 17 dye from synthetic textile wastewater. The ozone consumed to apparent dye removal ratio ranged from 2 to 15,000 mg ozone per mg of dye decolorized and was(More)
A survey was conducted to report on the types and efficiencies of various treatment technologies being used at major wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) in the state of Georgia. Twenty-four, full-scale wastewater treatment facilities with a design capacity of 37,850 m(3) d(-1) (10 Mg d(-1)) or greater were evaluated. One year of operating data for the 2003(More)
A bench-scale ozonation study was conducted on waste activated sludge (WAS) in a 10-L, clear PVC, semi-batch, bubble column reactor. Two separate runs were performed on 5-L samples of WAS obtained from the Rocky Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Macon, Georgia. The Rocky Creek facility uses the extended aeration activated sludge process to treat(More)
This research investigated and compared the use of both bench- and pilot-scale biofilters to determine the effectiveness of controlling styrene, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), and acetone emissions from an industrial gas waste stream. Critical operating parameters, including contaminant loading rate, temperature, and empty bed contact time, were manipulated in(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of port size in relation to laparoscopic gas flow and to determine the terminal velocity of gas flow during insufflation. DESIGN Analysis and mathematical modeling of gas flow characteristics. SETTING University biomedical engineering department. INTERVENTION Analytic calculations including Bernoulli's equation to(More)
Ozonation of a synthetic wastewater contaminated with acid yellow 17 dye and glucose was evaluated in a semi-batch bubble column. Data collected during this study suggests that the ozonation process removed color (represented as A400) more efficiently than chemical oxygen demand (COD) regardless of initial experimental conditions. With a 40-minute run time,(More)
Inflow and Infiltration (I/I) is extraneous water that enters a sewage treatment plant via groundwater infiltration or direct stormwater entry into sewers. This study is an attempt to quantify I/I impacts based on an assessment of influent and effluent data from twenty-four wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) in Georgia with design capacities of 37,850 m/d(More)
