Advanced Oxidation Processes for Wastewater Treatment

In the ongoing quest for better wastewater treatment, a team of researchers from the University of California, Riverside (UCR) have developed a technique to improve the way Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) remove pollutants from wastewater dramatically. AOPs remove organic materials from water using oxidation. These AOP reactions take place when hydrogen peroxide, a powerful oxidizing agent, decomposes, leaving hydroxyl radicals along with oxygen and water behind. This makes the processes appealing, but until now they've required both a long period of time and large amounts of both hydrogen peroxide and ferrous salt (Fe2+, a divalent iron ion). The Fe2+ acts like a catalyst, but also produces a secondary pollutant in the form of an iron-containing sludge.

Bacterium Breaks Down Ammonium in Sewage and Runoff Without Oxygen

Wetlands are one of nature's plans for treating water. Home to a host of different microbes, riparian wetland soils play matchmaker to nutrient-rich runoff and bacteria that feast on nutrients and other environmental toxins. Princeton University researchers have discovered one such bacterium—Acidimicrobiaceae bacterium A6—that can break down ammonium, part of both fertilizer and sewage runoff, without oxygen. This ability could mean wastewater treatment without expensive aeration machinery. Peter Jaffé , Princeton's William L. Knapp '47 Professor of Civil Engineering and a professor at Princeton's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment , corresponded with EM about the latest research . Dr. Jaffé and his team first published on A6 in 2015.

Monitoring and Tracking Ocean Microbes with LRAUVs

In March and April of 2018, researchers from the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa (UH Mānoa) and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) deployed a small fleet of long-range autonomous underwater vehicles (LRAUVs) in the waters of the Pacific near Hawaii. These LRAUVs automatically collect and archive samples of seawater, enabling scientists to study and track ocean microbes with a level of detail that is unprecedented. Chasing eddies The team who undertook the expedition on the research vessel Falkor was hoping to survey and track Mesoscale eddies within the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre (NPSG) using a suite of oceanographic instruments.
