Sewage sludge was stabilized and solidified (S/S) with cement-based binders prior to landfill in order to reduce the potential hazard of heavy metals. The leaching behavior and chemical speciation of heavy metals in the solidified sludge were studied by semi-dynamic leaching test, toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP) and sequential extraction(More)
Autothermal thermophilic aerobic digestion (ATAD) is a promising process for sewage sludge stabilization. Batch experiments were conducted on sewage sludge collected from a municipal wastewater treatment plant in Shanghai, China, to evaluate the effectiveness of the ATAD system by determining changes in volatile suspended solids (VSSs) and to study its(More)
Two representative thermophilic bacterial strains (T1 and T2) were isolated from a one-stage autothermal thermophilic aerobic digestion pilot-scale reactor. 16S rRNA gene analysis indicated that they were Hydrogenophilaceae and Xanthomonodaceae. These isolated strains were inoculated separately and/or jointly in sewage sludge, to investigate their effects(More)
A novel activation process was adopted to produce highly porous activated carbon from cyclic activated sludge in secondary precipitator in municipal wastewater treatment plant for dye removal from colored wastewater. The physical properties of activated carbon produced with the activation of 3M KOH solution in the atmosphere of steam were investigated.(More)
The potential benefits of electrolysis-conditioned sludge dewaterability treatments with surfactants were investigated in this study. Capillary suction time (CST) and specific resistance of filtration (SRF) were used to evaluate the sludge dewaterability. Extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) content, viscosity and zeta potential were determined in an(More)
An investigation into the effect of ferric chloride (FeCl3) on the disinhibition of excessive volatile fatty acids (VFAs) in sludge thermophilic anaerobic digestion (AD) system was performed. The optimum dosing time of FeCl3 was tested with the time interval of 0 h, 36 h, 72 h, 108 h and 144 h. The maximum biogas production was obtained in the case of 72nd(More)
A sewage sludge derived porous carbon (SC), which was prepared by physicochemical activation and carbonization (600°C), was applied for the adsorption and degradation of 1-diazo-2-naphthol-4-sulfonic acid (1,2,4-Acid) in the presence of H(2)O(2) and the performance was compared to that of pure Fe(3)O(4) magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs). The prepared SC showed(More)
In this work, an humic acid adsorption with an enhanced Fenton oxidation was employed to treat the real effluent originating from the 1-diazo-2-naphthol-4-sulfonic acid (1,2,4-Acid) production plant. In a first step, humic acid with MgSO(4) was selected as adsorbent and precipitant for physicochemical pretreatment, the synergetic effect had led to 39% of(More)
A magnetic porous carbon containing Fe(3)O(4) (FPC) has been synthesized by a novel activation and carbonization process of sewage sludge without extra addition of ferric ions. Properties of FPC carbonized at 600, 800 and 1000 °C were studied using N(2) adsorption and desorption isotherms, X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and(More)
Methylammonium lead halide perovskites suffer from poor stability because of their high sensitivity to moisture. Inorganic material coatings of SiO2 are preferred for coupling with perovskites to improve their stability, whereas the conventional SiO2 formation method is unsuitable because it requires water. Here, a simple SiO2 generation method based on the(More)
