Use of constructed wetland systems with Arundo and Sarcocornia for polishing high salinity tannery wastewater.

Effects of layered combined substrates on plant growth and treatment performance and its spatiotemporal variation of vertical-flow constructed wetlands

It was concluded that VFCWs filled with layered combined bio-ceramic, zeolite, and anthracite had great potential for treating municipal wastewater.

Livestock Wastewater Treatment in Constructed Wetlands for Agriculture Reuse

Overall, CWs showed potential to be efficient in removing toxic contaminants, as metals, while maintaining moderated levels of nutrients, allowing the use of reclaimed water in agriculture, namely as fertilizer.

Efficacy of Typha angustifolia based vertical flow constructed wetland system in pollutant reduction of domestic wastewater

Constructed wetland containing tolerant aquatic macrophytes have been found to remove contaminants from domestic wastewater more efficiently. In this study, Vertical Flow Constructed wetland was

Treatment of WASTEWATER from the Tannery Industry in a Constructed Wetland Planted with Phragmites australis

Constructed wetlands (CWs) can remove a high amount of pollutants from wastewater, and therefore play an important role in water purification. In this study, a pilot system to improve the traditional

Constructed Wetlands for Tannery Wastewater Treatment in Portugal: Ten Years of Experience

The present review compiles and integrates information on CWs technology for the needs of the tannery sector, giving indication that horizontal subsurface flow systems, with expanded clay media, are a suitable option to be considered when dealing with high organic loading tannery wastewater.

The results indicated that ammonia-nitrogen removal is significantly affected by hydraulic retention time while COD is not while the system shows higher removal performance at high initial NH4-N concentrations.

Treatment of High‐Strength Winery Wastewater Using a Subsurface‐Flow Constructed Wetland

Rapid expansion of the wine industry in rural California during the past three decades has created environmental contamination problems related to winery wastewater treatment and disposal. Often,

The mycorrhizal status of Phragmites australis in several polluted soils and sediments of an industrialised region of Northern Portugal

The results confirm that semi-aquatics, like P. australis, can become arbuscular mycorrhizal but that this status changes during the year depending on soil moisture content and plant phenology.

Growth, photosynthesis and acclimation by two submerged macrophytes in relation to temperature

It is suggested that temperature may affect local distribution of the two species and their ability to grow in turbid or deep water.

Adsorption and bio-degradation of phenol by chitosan-immobilized Pseudomonas putida (NICM 2174)

Abstract Biodegradation of phenol by Pseudomonas putida (NICM 2174), a potential biodegradent of phenol has been investigated for its degrading potential under different conditions. Pseudomonas
