Towards a more realistic heterogeneous electro-Fenton
With the aim of bringing the heterogeneous electro-Fenton (EF) treatment one step closer to a more realistic operation, the scaling-up of that technology was evaluated. Assays were performed firstly at lab scale in a ...
Full and Sustainable Electrochemical Production of Chlorine Dioxide
With the final purpose of manufacturing electrochemically-based devices that produce chloride dioxide efficiently, this paper focuses on the production of chlorates and hydrogen peroxide in two different electrochemical ...
Production of Chlorine Dioxide Using Hydrogen Peroxide and Chlorates
Chlorine dioxide was produced by the reduction of chlorate with hydrogen peroxide in strongly acidic media. To avoid reaction interference during measuring procedures, UV spectra were acquired to monitor the chlorate ...
Towards the production of chlorine dioxide from electrochemically in-situ produced solutions of chlorate
This work focuses on the electrochemical production of chlorate solutions for direct use and integration in the manufacture of chlorine dioxide (ClO2), from the perspective of manufacturing portable ClO2 electrochemical generators
Enhancing soil vapor extraction with EKSF for the removal of HCHs
This paper evaluates the combination of electrokinetic soil flushing (EKSF) with soil vapor extraction (SVE) for the removal of four hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) isomers contained in a real matrix. Results demonstrate that ...
Exploring the pressurized heterogeneous electro-Fenton process and modelling the system
In this research, a bench-scale installation was tested for the heterogeneous electro-Fenton treatment of clofibric acid. The setup consists of a pressurized flow-through electrochemical cell equipped with a catalyst ...
Scale-up of Ru-based mesh anodes for the degradation of synthetic hospital wastewater
The disposal of hospital wastewaters, particularly urine with high concentrations of pharmaceuticals, is a critical problem. These pharmaceuticals can enter the environment and lead to the development of superbacteria (in ...
Photocatalytic performance of Ti/MMO/ZnO at degradation of levofloxacin: Effect of pH and chloride anions
This work investigates the applicability of a new Ti/MMO/ZnO electrode composed to metallic mixture oxides of ruthenium and titanium (MMO) and zinc oxide electrodeposited in the photoelectrocatalytic treatment of synthetic ...
Are we correctly targeting the research on disinfection of antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB)?
Antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB) is one of the biggest public health challenges of our time since causes thousands of human deaths per year. ARB are bacteria which acquire resistance over time through different mechanism ...
Understanding the influence of the bioaerosol source on the distribution of airborne bacteria in hospital indoor air
The composition and concentration of airborne microorganisms in hospital indoor air has been reported to contain airborne bacteria and fungi concentrations ranged 101–103 CFU/m3 in inpatients facilities which mostly exceed ...
