Efficiency and toxicity: comparison between the Fenton and electrochemical processes
This study aimed to determine the best method to treat a textile effluent containing the dye basic blue 99 (BB). Treatments by the electrochemical and the Fenton processes were compared by means of a 23 experimental design, and the interaction of experimental conditions for BB oxidation were determined. The electrochemical treatment gave better results in the presence of NaCl as electrolyte and high current density (30 mA cm−2); the Fenton reaction provided better results at H2O2 and Fe2+ concentrations of 10 mg...
Case study - South Pool Creek, Devon
Part of the works to repair an essentials road recently damaged by a landslide required hydroseeding to it`s slopes and to help retain the soil an erosion control blanket was fitted by the client prior to seeding. Additional tackifier was added to the mix to help bind the sprayed on material to the steep slopes until germination and the establishment of the new grasses.Project Size: 1,000m2Location: South Pool, DorsetClient: South Hams CouncilCompletion: March 2011
Case study - Former Steel Works, Ebbw Vale
Chosen as home for the 2010 National Eisteddfod of Wales, over 200,000m2 of hydroseeding on to sloped and flat areas was successfully completed using a broad range of project specific seed mixes that included both wildflower and grass mixtures.Due to the nature of the site, it was too impractical to conventionally seed the former industrial landmark, making hydroseeding the only solution.The first phase was hydroseeding with native wildflower seed and completed in the spring, within 10 days germination could...
Ecotoxicity of halloysite nanotubes supported palladium nanoparticles on Raphanus sativus L.
Halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) are natural nanomaterials, biocompatible and available in large amounts at low prices. They are emerging nanomaterials with appealing perspectives for application like support for metal nanoparticles (NPs). Potential environmental impacts of NPs can be understood taking into consideration phytotoxicity. Current research focuses on HNTs application in cell or animal models, while their use in plants is limited so that their ecotoxicological impact is poorly documented. Up to date there...
Germination and early plant development of ten plant species exposed to TiO2 and CeO2 nanoparticles
Ten agronomic plant species were exposed to different concentrations of nano titanium dioxide (nTiO2) or nano cerium oxide (nCeO2) (0, 250 µg/mL, 500 µg/mL and 1000 µg/mL) to examine potential effects on germination and early seedling development. We modified a standard test protocol developed for soluble chemicals (OPPTS 850.4200) to determine if such an approach might be useful for screening engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) and whether there were differences in response across a range of commercially important...
