A proposed nomenclature for biological processes that remove nitrogen
A consistent terminology is proposed to resolve present inconsistencies and to facilitate distinct communication about biological nitrogen removal processes.
Review of the molluscicide metaldehyde in the environment
Understanding the occurrence, fate and mitigation of the potent molluscicide, metaldehyde in the aquatic environment is now a major concern.
LED revolution: fundamentals and prospects for UV disinfection applications
This review provides the fundamental and essential knowledge of UV-LEDs to better apply LED technology in environmental application.
Mining valuable minerals from seawater: a critical review
Methods of extracting valuable minerals from seawater and seawater brines generated in desalination plants are critically reviewed in this paper.
Pharmaceutical removal in synthetic human urine using biochar
This research addresses the potential for biochar to remove pharmaceuticals from synthetic urine, thereby allowing the treated urine to be used as a contaminant-free nutrient product.
Emerging investigators series: highly effective adsorption of organic aromatic molecules from aqueous environments by electronically sorted single-walled carbon nanotubes
The use of electronically sorted (i.e. semiconducting or metallic) single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) for the removal of organic compounds from aqueous environments is investigated.
Evaluation of pollutant removal efficiency of a bioretention basin and implications for stormwater management in tropical cities
Field-scale bioretention basin performance in treating a full suite of nutrients is critically evaluated in the data-scarce tropics.
Emerging investigators series: prioritization of suspect hits in a sensitive suspect screening workflow for comprehensive micropollutant characterization in environmental samples
A suspect screening workflow was developed and applied to a series of samples collected from a small urban water system to identify and confirm the occurrence of 112 organic micropollutants.
Human health trade-offs in the disinfection of wastewater for landscape irrigation: microplasma ozonation vs. chlorination
Microplasma ozonation provided more human health protection than chlorination for irrigational water reuse disinfection.
A mechanistic understanding of the degradation of trace organic contaminants by UV/hydrogen peroxide, UV/persulfate and UV/free chlorine for water reuse
Climate change and population growth pose increasing challenges to the availability of freshwater resources.
