In this study, a new ZnCl2 impregnated activated carbon (Zn-AC) was prepared from oak charcoals as low-cost material and used as adsorbent for tetracycline (TC) adsorption. From past few decades, nanotechnology has gained wide attention and various nanomaterials have been developed for the water remediation. They are mainly organic compounds such as: pesticides, pharmaceuticals and personal care products, hormones, plasticizers, food additives, wood preservatives, laundry detergents, surfactants, disinfectants, flame retardants, and other organic compounds that were found recently in natural wastewater stream generated by human and industrial activities. The general order kinetic model and the Redlich–Peterson isotherm model provided the best fit to the experimental data. 2. Adsorption using waste tire was able to remove 80% of the Cr species contained in a tannery effluent. And further, the adsorption isotherms will be obtained to evaluate the adsorbents with a greater capacity for adsorption of adsorbates of interest. Moreover, the carbon adsorbents were proven as efficient materials in the removal of the pharmaceutical compounds from the hospital effluent matrix; after the treatment, only trace-level concentrations of atenolol and trazodone were detected. The adsorption data could be well interpreted by the Freundlich model. Adsorption is a promising method worldwide for EC removal since it is low initial cost for implementation, highly-efficient and has simple operating design. Amino modified HPD 100 styrene-type macroporous resin (M-HPD 100) was successfully synthesized by atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) process. Continuing with these general fabrication aspects, a brief theoretical section of the basic principles of mass transport through a membrane is presented. Because of the development of consumer society, harmful chemicals are being generated in huge quantities throughout the world. 2020 Oct 25;10(11):305. doi: 10.3390/membranes10110305. Following this, ultrasonication techniques have been largely employed in graphene synthesis and its dispersion in various solvents which would conventionally take days and offers poor yield. Water pollution is usually a result of human activities and it has become an issue of concern because of the toxic and carcinogenic effects associated with some pollutants which may affect all living organisms. At the same time the overall adsorption rate and removal efficiency are reduced in the oxidized carbon due to the competitive effect of water molecules. Possible disposal methods for spent biosorbent include use as a filler in road surfacing, as a soil amendment, and in phytoremediation cells where the organics are absorbed and broken down by plants. interactions and hydrogen bonds might be mainly responsible for the adsorption of metformin onto GO. The presence of such by-products can cause the secondary pollutant. The highest removal capacities were registered using MWCNT (224.6 mg/g for CZ and 78.8 mg/g for DA), which are highly efficient performances, when compared with other adsorbents reported in the literature. The conventional primary and secondary water treatment plants do not remove or degrade these toxic pollutants efficiently and hence need cost effective tertiary treatment method. 2016 Sep 15;565:811-817. doi: 10.1016/j.scitotenv.2016.03.224. 15nm lumen, can be used for loading, storage and sustained release of drugs either in its pristine form or with additional polymer complexation for extended release time. as well as in soils. Coconut shell-based activated carbons intended for CH4 storage were prepared by chemical activation with H3PO4 or ZnCl2 and/or physical activation with CO2. Coastal sediment samples contained mParaben, OP, 4-MBC, BP-3, BP-1, BPA, OMC, and E1 (< 0.2–11 ng g⁻¹ d.w.), and mParaben, OP, and BP-3 were found to bioaccumulate (3.8–21.3 ng g⁻¹ d.w.) in green lipped mussels. The prepared activated carbon (SCP700) was used for the removal of two emerging contaminants, 4-bromophenol (4-BrPhOH) and 4-chloroaniline (4-ClPhNH2) that are primarily employed in the industry. The adsorbents were characterized using Powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), Field Emission-Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM), and Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS). The porous PS-GO membranes showed asymmetric and highly porous micrometer sized pores on membrane top (diameter ≈ 20 μm) and bottom (diameter ≈ 2-5 μm) surfaces and tens of microns length finger like pores in the section. In addition, the adsorption isotherms data were well described by nonlinear equation of the Liu isotherm model with the maximum adsorption capacity of 253.38 mg g À1. Ofloxacin (OFLOX), benzophenone-3 (BP-3), rhodamine b (Rh), DCF and triton X-100 (TRX) were removed with efficiency higher than 90% after 4 hours treatments. The employment of the ABc-600 in the treatment of synthetic pharmaceutical industry wastewater exhibited high effectiveness in their removals (up to 99.0%). Mixed solutions of these ECs were treated in different water bodies to test PG as a tertiary treatment option. United States Environmental Protection Agency Office of Research and Development Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response EPA/540/S-92/002 January 1992 vvEPA Ground Water Issue TCE Removal from Contaminated … It … Intra-particle diffusion and film diffusion are believed to be the rate-limiting process for M-HPD 100. Yet, some treatment processes, namely precipitation and ion exchange, have cost-prohibitive and potentially hazardous drawbacks. According to collected data, maximum adsorption capacities of 1340.8, 638.6, and 570.4 mg/g were reported for tetracyclines, quinolones, and penicillins, respectively. Thus, effective environmental remediations of these pollutants became necessary. Sonochemistry, an almost a century old technique was predominantly employed in the cleaning and extraction processes but this tool has now slowly gained tremendous attention in the synthesis of nanoparticles (NPs) where particles of sub-micron have been produced with great stability. Similarly, the use of advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) is also considered an excellent technology in the degradation of organic products, especially those that resist biological treatment, in which they are oxidized via radical hydroxyls (OH⋅). Low cost biosorbents are one of best promising materials for dye removal in wastewater treatment studies. EAC is recommended as a suitable and cost-efficient adsorbent for removing poisons, pharmaceuticals, and other emerging contaminants from water resources. Removal of some organic compounds by inclusion and adsorption on β-cyclodextrin was investigated for the purpose of environmental protection. Biochar has propelled itself to the forefront of the scientific community as a highly economical sorbent with great adsorption capabilities. Efforts were focused to establish relationships among the activation procedure, the textural and physical-chemical properties of the resulting materials and their volumetric CH4 uptake. Pseudo second-order adsorption kinetics were found to be best to describe the mechanism of the adsorption with higher calculated equilibrium adsorption capacity (qe cal) values coefficients of correlations (R 2 ≥ 0.99). Effluent discharges from wastewater treatment plants are a significant source of micropollutants to coastal environments. ... Water pollution has become one of the most dangerous issues that threaten our world because of its severe impact on human health and the whole ecosystem. AC with mesoporous structures rich in oxygenated groups and high specific area (as high as 1742 m2 g−1) were helpful for the efficient and fast adsorption of AMX. OACs are a promising adsorbent for PPCPs over a wide acidity/basicity range owing to their high adsorption capacity and facile reusability. Based on batch adsorption experiments, it was found that rGO, obtained via modified Hummers method, was a good nanoadsorbent for removal of the anti-inflammatory NM from aqueous solutions. Nanomechanical mapping reveals patches of a stiffer material with Young modules comprised in the range 15-25 GPa, not present in PS pure membranes that are compatible with the presence of GO flakes on the membrane surfaces. In addition, conventional physical–chemical methods are not able to degrade these contaminants, so an alternative treatment method is needed. The Mg0.4Zn0.6Fe2O4 sample demonstrated the maximum adsorption capacity of 74 mg/g. Thus, the decreasing in the adsorption removal was observed for both contaminants when the mixture CBZ-CPX was treated, reaching up to 80.5% of decreasing in CBZ adsorption (in presence of CPX) onto F-400 activated carbon. This study aimed to determine the efficiency of modified Eskanbil activated carbon for the removal of PG from aqueous solutions. Among all the water treatment technologies adsorption is considered the most effective technique due to its affordability, universal availability and ease of operation. They allow achieving the removal of pollutants from wastewater and at same time to contribute to the waste minimization, recovery and reuse. Y/CS/MFA composite based on solid waste fly ash would be a promising adsorbent with low cost and superior adsorption properties for high-concentration direct dye removal from wastewater. The results showed that all studied cations and anions decreased TC adsorption onto the Zn-AC, but this decrease in TC adsorption was strongly significant for Fe3+ and Ni2+ions. Although this method of treatment is fruitful in the degradation of substances present in ECs, it is essential to monitor and evaluate bioremediation processes, since microbial activity may fail due to stress caused by drastic changes in environmental conditions. Designing microbial desalination cell Tests were done in absence and presence of nutrients or copper. Magnetic magnesium-zinc spinel ferrite Mg1 − xZnxFe2O4 (where x = 0.4, 0.6, and 0.8) was investigated as adsorbent for the efficient removal of Sr(II) ions and salicylic acid (SA) contaminants from aqueous medium. About the applicability of the ACs for treating simulated effluents, the tucumã seed activated carbon showed an excellent outcome in the treatment of simulated effluents, evidencing its high-efficiency for phenolic compound adsorption. However, the efficient and accessible applications of these technologies are challenging. Adsorption is a promising method worldwide for EC removal since it is low initial cost for implementation, highly-efficient and has simple operating design. Among the materials used for manufacturing of these membranes, composites based on graphene oxide and reduced graphene oxide are preferred owing to their promising properties, such as mechanical resistance, thermal and chemical stability, antifouling capacity, water permeability, high thermal and electrical conductivity, high optical transmittance and high surface area. In this work, magnetic porous carbon material derived from a bimetallic metal–organic framework was explored as an adsorbent for magnetic solid-phase extraction of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs). The uptake of metformin on the graphene oxide was strongly dependent on temperature, pH, ionic strength, and background electrolyte. Both adsorbents were successfully used for simulated hospital effluents, removing at least 93.00% and 96.77% for MAC-1 and MAC-2, respectively, of a mixture of 9 pharmaceuticals with high concentrations of sugars, organic components, and saline concentrations. GO still exhibited excellent adsorption capacity after several desorption/adsorption cycles. The Brouers-Sotolongo equation was the best fitting isotherm model (99.5–99.9% correlation coefficients). H-bonding is suggested as the principal mechanism for the adsorption of PPCPs over MOFs, where the PPCPs and MOFs can be H-acceptors and H-donors, respectively. In a more recent approach, sonophotocatalysis was employed for the combined effect of sonication and photocatalysis of metal deposited graphene. The adsorbent ASAC was characterized using analytical techniques viz., N2 isotherms, FTIR, SEM. When the adsorption saturation is reached; an adsorbed quantity was calculated and interpreted of each pharmaceutical molecule on both adsorbents indicating that the MAC-2 adsorbent could present higher efficiency for wastewater treatment. No significant adsorption efficiency differences were measured after 5 and 10. days of adsorption. NLM Emerging contaminants (ECs), are not regulated or partly regulated compounds even in developed countries, and these contaminants can be hazardous for the environment and threaten human health. The theoretical results indicate a physisorption interaction between NM and all of the evaluated adsorbents. The adsorption mechanism was explained in terms of H-bonding and a partial contribution by electrostatic and π-π interactions through analyses of the adsorptive performances and surface charges of the OACs over a wide range of pH conditions. The NM adsorption onto graphene, with and without vacancy, reduced graphene oxide (rGO) and functionalized graphene nanoribbons were simulated, providing a good understanding of the adsorption process of the NM molecule onto graphene material surfaces. Optimum removal capacities were recorded at pH between 6 and 8 for both adsorbents and PhACs. Here, low-cost kaolinite (KAC) clay was synergistically combined with blended Carica papaya or pine cone seeds, and calcined to obtain composites of KAC-Carica papaya seeds (KPA) and KAC-pine cone seeds (KPC).
