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 speedily urbanizing international society, reliable waste administration could be a key problem dealing with the entire world's towns. reliable Waste administration within the World's towns offers a clean viewpoint and new facts on one of many largest matters in city improvement. utilizing the framework of built-in Sustainable Waste administration (ISWM), the file brings jointly exceptional examine 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, akin to surfactants, within the setting is a prerequisite for the sustainable improvement of human health and wellbeing and ecosystems. As surfactants are being produced in large quantities, it is very important have a close wisdom approximately their lifetime within the surroundings, their biodegradability in wastewater therapy vegetation and in average waters, and their ecotoxicity.

Having an affinity for water or readily absorbing or dissolving in water). Although cellulose acetate membranes have been used for nanofiltration and reverse osmosis applications, they are not used in MBR applications as they are not suitable for wastewater feeds because of their biodegradability (Wilf et ah, 2010). Cellulose acetate membranes are also low in strength and elongation. , 2010). Material Characteristics Advantages Disadvantages Polyethersulfone Moderately Strength, high Limited pressure (PES) permeability application for air scour, hydrophilic, high strength, low lower chlorine tolerance elongation Polysulfone Moderately hydrophilic Strength, Limited pressure with additives.

In addition, cleaning efficiency is good because of a highshear velocity under cross-flow filtration (with or without air) and some ability to backflush. Energy cost is high because of the high pumping rate for cross-flow filtration. 5 presents a typical configuration for tubular membranes based on literature by Li et al. (2008). 4 Membrane Component Operation (Membrane Process Configurations) Two main process configurations that are used today are internal MBR ("iMBR," or immersed) and external MBR ("eMBR," or sidestream).

Building on the fundamental principles presented in the preceding three chapters, Chapter 4 presents an integrated methodology to develop a complete, integrated process design for an MBR. Chapter 5 addresses the design of the physical facilities needed to implement the MBR process, with emphasis on features unique to MBRs. Membrane bioreactors present unique challenges to the designer as the membrane system component is critical to system design but each vendor offers systems with unique features.
