Bioavailability processes for contaminants in soils and their use in risk assessment
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 8Nr. 5
Abstract The individual physical, chemical, and biological interactions that determine the exposure of plants and animals to chemicals associated with soils are of great importance in the assessment of contaminants bioavailability. Understanding of bioavailability processes is at last needed to improve the scientific basis of risk assessment and is the purpose of the present research. Since bioavailability processes are embedded within existing human health and ecological risk frameworks, so...

Modeling and simulation of an ultrafiltration process for the removal of suspended solids and colloids from wastewater
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 9Nr. 3
Abstract Mathematical modeling of the ultrafiltration (UF) process is motivated by the complexity of retention phenomena that occur during the UF in conjunction with the complexity of wastewater matrices submitted to ultrafiltration, as well as by the need to predict the process behavior in extreme conditions, such as high pollution loads for UF-membrane cleaning cycles optimization or for automated control of the process. Thus, series of laboratory-scale ultrafiltration experiments were perf...

A numerical simulation was conducted to investigate the combustion characteristics and effects of Hydrogen-Hydrogen Oxygen (HHO) addition on performance and NOx emission of a spark ignition (SI) biogas engine. At a given operating condition, indicative work cycle Wi increases with increase of HHO, CH4 concentrations and load rate; but it decreases with engine speed increase and reaches peak value as variation of equivalence ratio and advanced ignition timing. Combustion temperature T and NOx con...

MEASUREMENT AND ANALYSIS OF AGRICULTURAL WASTE RECYCLING EFFICIENCY
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 19Nr. 9
Research on the efficiency of agricultural waste recycling by farmers is helpful to help us understand the status of agricultural waste recycling based on micro perspective From this perspective, this paper uses a three-stage Data Envelopment Analysis model to measure the agricultural waste recycling efficiency of peasant households. Through research, the concludes that the three-stage Data Envelopment Analysis model seems more scientific and rational to measure the performance of farmers&rsquo...

RESPONSES OF SHALLOW GROUNDWATER SYSTEM TO DIFFERENT WATER-SAVING PRACTICES IN TYPICAL IRRIGATION AREA IN NORTHWEST CHINA
Environmental Engineering and Management JournalVol. 19Nr. 9
The Jinghui Canal Irrigation District (JCID) is a highly productive agricultural area of Shaanxi province, China. Because of severe water scarcity, implementing water-saving renovation practices for agricultural sustainability is necessary. To determine the influence of different water saving practises on the shallow groundwater system in the JCID, ArcGIS and Processing MODFLOW are used to simulate changes in shallow groundwater in the irrigated farmland in this area. The results show that field...
