Biological Treatment of Wastewater by Addition of Activated Carbon Powder (CAP)

  title={Biological Treatment of Wastewater by Addition of Activated Carbon Powder (CAP)},
  author={Robert L. Fares and Abderrahmane Aissa and Abed Bouadi and Mourad Ait Lounis},
The units in the Arzew industrial area discharge significant quantities of liquid (industrial) discharges containing solvents, heavy metals, suspended solids and other organic loads that are discharged into the sewerage system and/or the receiving environment without adequate treatment. The use of powdered activated carbon (CAP) makes it possible to considerably reduce the concentrations of organic pollutants contained in the effluents by its optimum adsorption capacity. The aim of this…

Quality Assessment of Bottled and Unbottled Drinking Water in Bangladesh
The demand for bottled drinking water in Bangladesh is becoming popular due to the lack of safe drinking water sources. The present study was carried out to assess the water quality and public health
Spatial Analysis and Sustainable-Strategic Environment Management at Baron Spring Catchment Area, Karst of Gunung Sewu, Yogyakarta
Gunung Sewu’s karstic aquifer characteristic of fracture-fissure water conduit leads to pollution problem in the water resources. One main source of water used is the Baron Spring. This study aims to


Hybrid membrane filtration process for leachate treatment
Abstract A hybrid technology known as the ultrafiltration-biologically active carbon (UF-BAC) process that amalgamates adsorption, biodegradation and membrane filtration is found to be highly
Model for predicting the performance of membrane bioadsorber reactor process in water treatment applications
Abstract This research focuses on the development of a mathematical model for performance prediction/simulation of the membrane bioadsorber reactor (MBR) process. The MBR process integrates

Pollution characterization of liquid waste of the factory complex Fertial (Arzew, Algeria)
This first work of characterization of industrial effluents generated by the mineral fertilizer factory complex Fertial (Arzew) discussed the pollution load generated by this type of industry and established a tool for reflection and decision support developed by a management system capable of ensuring effective and sustainable management of effluent from industrial activities of Fertil.
Characterization of Gaseous Pollutants from the Fertilizer Complex Fertial (Arzew-Algeria)
Environmental assessment of industrial effluents generates by the mineral fertilizer complex. This complex contributes by its industrial activities to the contamination of the urban atmosphere of the
Biological and Physicochemical Wastewater Treatment Processes Reduce the Prevalence of Virulent Escherichia coli
A reduction of the proportion of pathogenic E. coli could not be explained by the preferential loss of one virulence gene or one type of virulence factor; however, the quinolone resistance gene (qnrS) appears to enhance the loss of virulent genes, suggesting a mechanism involving the lost pathogenicity islands.
Determination of the Sea Waters Quality of Arzew-Algeria Gulf
