A thorough review of advancement in slaughterhouse wastewater (SWW) characteristics, treatment, and management in the meat processing industry is presented. This study also provides a general review of the environmental impacts, health effects, and regulatory frameworks relevant to the SWW management. A significant progress in high-rate anaerobic treatment,(More)
The objective of this study is to analyze the technical importance, performance, techniques, advantages, and disadvantages of the biosensors in general and of the electrochemical biosensors in particular. A product of reaction diffuses to the transducer in the first generation biosensors (based on Clark biosensors). The mediated biosensors or second(More)
The greatest challenge of today's wastewater treatment technology is to optimize the use of biological and chemical wastewater treatment processes. The choice of the process and/or integration of the processes depend strongly on the wastewater characteristics, concentrations, and the desired efficiencies. It has been observed by many investigators that the(More)
The biological treatment of a synthetic slaughterhouse wastewater (SSWW) is studied using an anaerobic baffled bioreactor (ABR) and an aerobic activated sludge (AS) at a laboratory scale in continuous mode. The total organic carbon (TOC) loading rate, the total nitrogen (TN) loading rate, and the flow rate are 0.03-1.01 g/(L.day), 0.01-0.19 g/(L.day), and(More)
The photocatalytic treatment of a textile dye wastewater, cibacron brilliant yellow 3G-P (reactive yellow 2), under the presence of UV-A radiation was studied. Treatment of test solutions containing 100 mg/L cibacron brilliant yellow dye with two types of photocatalysts, Degussa P25 and Hombikat UV 100 titanium dioxide, were investigated. The efficiency of(More)
The objective of this study is to evaluate the operating costs of treating slaughterhouse wastewater (SWW) using combined biological and advanced oxidation processes (AOPs). This study compares the performance and the treatment capability of an anaerobic baffled reactor (ABR), an aerated completely mixed activated sludge reactor (AS), and a UV/H2O2 process,(More)
The photocatalytic degradation of aqueous linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS) was studied. Two different photocatalysts, Degussa P25 TiO2 and Hombikat UV 100 TiO2, were used to degrade aqueous linear alkylbenzene sulfonate in slurry batch photoreactors. For a 100 mg/L LAS solution based on first-order rate constants, the optimum photocatalyst loading for(More)
In this study, the biodegradability of an untreated and photocatalytically treated solution containing Cibacron Brilliant Yellow 3G-P was examined. Both untreated and partially treated dyes by photocatalysis were used in the biological treatment process. Respirometric measurements indicated that the untreated dye was not inhibitory to biological treatment(More)
The merits of the sonophotolysis as a combination of sonolysis (US) and photolysis (UV/H2O2) are investigated in a pilot-scale external loop airlift sonophotoreactor for the treatment of a synthetic pharmaceutical wastewater (SPWW). In the first part of this study, the multivariate experimental design is carried out using Box-Behnken design (BBD). The(More)
