The aim of this study was to verify the efficiency of removal of microorganisms in effluents of a Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) comprising an association of a UASB reactor followed by three submerged aerated biofilters (BAF) and one tertiary filter. The WWTP designed to treat domestic wastewater from a population of 1,000 inhabitants showed high removal(More)
The aim of this study was to verify the efficiency of UV irradiation in the inactivation of Salmonella spp. in treated wastewater with different levels of turbidity and exposed to increasing doses of UV irradiation. Experiments were carried out in a batch reactor and in a real scale reactor. Salmonellae obtained from clinical samples were seeded into(More)
Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) represents one of the main odorant gases emitted from wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) and a mathematical model can be a fast and low cost tool to estimate its emission. In this work H2S emission rates in a WWTP, composed of an up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor and an aerobic biofilter (BF), are estimated using four(More)
Europium doped silver tungstates α-Ag2-3xEuxWO4 (x = 0, 0.0025, 0.005, 0.0075 and 0.01 mol) were synthesized by the coprecipitation method at 90 °C for 30 minutes. These crystals were structurally characterized by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD), Rietveld refinement, and micro-Raman (MR) and Fourier transformed infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopies. Field(More)
Ag2W(1-x)MoxO4 (x=0.0 and 0.50) powders were synthesized by the co-precipitation (drop-by-drop) method and processed using a microwave-assisted hydrothermal method. We report the real-time in situ formation and growth of Ag filaments on the Ag2W(1-x)MoxO4 crystals using an accelerated electron beam under high vacuum. Various techniques were used to evaluate(More)
The CO2 reforming of CH4 was carried out over Ni catalysts supported on -Al2O3 and CeO2-promoted -Al2O3. The catalysts were characterized by means of surface area measurements, TPR, CO2 and H2 chemisorption, XRD, SEM, and TEM. The CeO2 addition promoted an increase of catalytic activity and stability. The improvement in the resistance to carbon deposition(More)
The sanitary quality and productivity of hydroponic lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) plants cultivated under greenhouse conditions and treated with effluent from anaerobic reactor + polishing pond followed by physical-chemical treatment was evaluated. Two hydroponic cultivations were performed at summer and winter time at Vitoria-ES, Brazil. The treatments for(More)
Sludge samples from an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor and four submerged aerated biofilters (BFs) of a wastewater treatment plant (1,000 inhab.) were processed at bench scale by alkaline and acid hydrolysis with the objective to evaluate the organic matter solubilization, volatile solids (VS) destruction and the effect of hydrolytic(More)
