Owing to the Industrial Revolution in the late 1970s, heavy metal pollution has been regarded as a serious threat to mangrove ecosystems in the region of the Pearl River Estuary, potentially affecting human health. The present study attempted to characterize the ecological risk of heavy metals (Cd, Cr, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb and Zn) in Nansha mangrove, South China,(More)
Illegal e-waste recycling activity has caused heavy metal pollution in many developing countries, including China. In recent years, the Chinese government has strengthened enforcement to impede such activity; however, the heavy metals remaining in the abandoned e-waste recycling site can still pose ecological risk. The present study aimed to investigate the(More)
This study evaluated the effects of synthesized octahedral molecular sieve (OMS-2) nanoparticles on the anaerobic microbial community in a model digester, expanded granular sludge bed (EGSB) reactor. The addition of OMS-2 (0.025 g/L) in the EGSB reactors resulted in an enhanced operational performance, i.e., COD removal and biogas production increased by 4%(More)
In the last century, organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) have been extensively used, especially in South China, to promote crop yield. In view of their toxicity, persistence and bioavailability, however, the Chinese government has attempted to regulate their production and use. We aimed to examine the biological risk, source and pollution history of OCPs in(More)
One of the main problems for effective control of a minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is the imprecision that caused by hand tremor. In this paper, a new kind of nonlinear adaptive filter, the fuzzy wavelet neural network filter (FWNNF), is proposed to alleviate this problem. The proposed FWNNF is inherently a feed forward multilayered connectionist network(More)
Greenhouse pot experiments were conducted to determine the growth response, metal tolerance, and phytostabilization potential of Jatropha curcas L The plants were grown on different degrees of multi-metal contaminated acid mine soils (T0, control; T1, moderately and T2, highly contaminated soils) with or without limestone amendments. The order of metal(More)
Simultaneous removal of thallium (Tl) and chloride from a highly saline industrial wastewater was investigated using modified anion ion exchange resins. The removal of thallium was mainly driven by the exchange of Tl-chlorocomplex (TlCl4-) formed in the oxidation of thallous (Tl (I)) to thallic ion (Tl (III)) by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) under saline(More)
The study characterized the enrichment, ecological risk and possible source of heavy metals (As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb and Zn) in sediments from a typical mariculture bay. The concentrations of the metals were analyzed in sediments collected from Zhelin bay. The distribution variation was examined during the past decade, which had an increase tendency till(More)
The objective of this paper is to assess the influence of irritating paddy fields with acid mine drainage containing thallium (Tl) to rice plant-soil system and potential health risks for local residents. Vertical distribution of Tl, pH, organic matter (OM), and cation exchange capacity (CEC) in 24 paddy soil profiles around Yunfu pyrite mine area was(More)
