Membrane materials for water purification: design, development, and application
New membrane technologies based on novel organic, inorganic, and hybrid materials and with unprecedented functionality are reviewed.
Characterising and understanding the impact of microbial biofilms and the extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) matrix in drinking water distribution systems
Drinking water distribution systems (DWDS) contain complex microbial biofilm communities. Understanding the ecology of these biofilms is critical for effective management of DWDS infrastructure and maintenance of water quality.
Inorganic engineered nanoparticles in drinking water treatment: a critical review
This review summarizes the recent research in the field of inorganic engineered nanoparticle development with direct or potential interest for drinking water treatment.
Emerging investigators series: microbial communities in full-scale drinking water distribution systems – a meta-analysis
In this study, we co-analyze all available 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies from bulk drinking water samples in full-scale drinking water distribution systems.
Functionalized three-dimensional (3D) graphene composite for high efficiency removal of mercury
Tailored graphene composites with iron nanoparticles and silica microparticles for mercury removal in contaminated waters were prepared.
Diffusion layer characteristics for increasing the performance of activated carbon air cathodes in microbial fuel cells
Air cathode characteristics significantly affected power production of microbial fuel cells during wastewater treatment.
Emerging investigators series: pyrolysis removes common microconstituents triclocarban, triclosan, and nonylphenol from biosolids
Pyrolysis could be used as a biosolids processing step that reduces the amount of organic microconstituents discharged to the environment with residual biosolids.
Survey of green building water systems reveals elevated water age and water quality concerns
Widespread adoption of innovative water conservation strategies has potential unintended consequences for aesthetics and public health.
Effect of sewage sludge type on the partitioning behaviour of pharmaceuticals: a meta-analysis
Understanding the partitioning behaviour of active pharmaceutical ingredients between sludge and aqueous phases in wastewater treatment plants is important for environmental regulation.
Inactivation of bacteria from contaminated streams in Limpopo, South Africa by silver- or copper-nanoparticle paper filters
There is an urgent need for inexpensive point-of-use methods to purify drinking water in developing countries to reduce the incidence of illnesses caused by waterborne pathogens.
