Recyclingtechnik: Fachbuch für Lehre und Praxis (German Edition)

Das Recycling von Altgeräten, Werkstoffen und anderen Materialien leistet einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Ressourcenschonung, Schadstoffbeseitigung und Energieeinsparung sowie zur Reduzierung von Deponievolumen. Die einsetzbare Recyclingtechnik ist dabei eine grundlegende Voraussetzung für die wirtschaftliche Realisierung der Prozesse.

Solid Waste Management in the World's Cities: Water and Sanitation in the World's Cities 2010

In our quickly urbanizing international society, strong waste administration should be a key problem dealing with the entire world's towns. sturdy Waste administration within the World's towns presents a clean point of view and new information on one of many greatest concerns in city improvement. utilizing the framework of built-in Sustainable Waste administration (ISWM), the document brings jointly extraordinary study from 22 towns throughout six continents.

Analysis and Fate of Surfactants in the Aquatic Environment, Volume 40 (Comprehensive Analytical Chemistry)

An realizing of the destiny and behavior of natural chemical substances, equivalent to surfactants, within the surroundings is a prerequisite for the sustainable improvement of human overall healthiness and ecosystems. As surfactants are being produced in large quantities, it is very important have an in depth wisdom approximately their lifetime within the setting, their biodegradability in wastewater remedy vegetation and in typical waters, and their ecotoxicity.

Per hour. In some cases the utilization rate may be expressed in other forms. Some of the more common are listed below. m. Ο2/Ι1Γ kr ==•= mg 0 2 /hr/g sludge QQ^ R= ml/02 hr/g sludge (I ml of 0 2 contains 1-43 mg 0 2 ) A linear relationship will exist between sludge concentration and oxygen utilization over the range of sludge concentrations usually employed. ) the unit rate of oxygen utilization may decrease due to diffusional resistances (Dawson and Jenkins, 1949). In most cases the specific uptake rate (kT) will vary inversely with organism size.

M. Sludge recycle ratio : From a material balance of the process (neglecting solids in the influent waste) the sludge recycle ratio (r ~ R/Q) becomes: 5. 3000 PRINCIPLES OF BIOLOGICAL OXIDATION 33 BOD at beginning of the aeration period: Q la + R le , /o = = - q T r ^ J ^ 4 t . m. F F If effects of short-circuiting are neglected : per cent BOD removal (based on / 0 ) = ^ = 75 per cent 200 and from Fig. 2-6 5 a . , t = 2-6 hr Volume of aeration tank V=4 Mgal/day Χ ~ BIO-OXIDATION = 0-433 mg OF PURE COMPOUNDS Studies on the oxidation of various pure organic substances have been conducted by several investigators.

2-14. It can be seen from Fig. 2-1 that the sludge accumulation for an oxidation process will be the net growth (a-c) less that portion which is oxidized by the sludge mass (c-d). The net growth will depend on the starting point on the time axis which in turn depends on the BOD loading level to the process. From these considerations the resultant PRINCIPLES OF BIOLOGICAL OXIDATION 55 net accumulation of sludge from synthesis and oxidation can be expressed: AS(lb/day VSS) = j£ r (lb/day B O D 5 removed) - ôS a(lb/MLVSS) (2-18a) The constant a represents the fraction of 5-day BOD removed which is synthesized to new biological sludge.
