Abstract Production of the distilled alcohol pisco results in vinasse, dark brown wastewater with high polyphenols contents and chemical oxygen demand (COD). No prior research exists on the efficiency of advanced oxidations processes (AOPs) in treating pisco vinasse. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to assess the efficiency of ultraviolet (UV), ultrasound (US), US+UV, heterogeneous photocatalysis (HP), and HP+US treatments. Polyphenols, COD, and color removal, as well as oxidation-reduct...

Abstract The depuration of landfill leachate (LL) was evaluated by solar advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) (photo-Fenton + O3 and photo-Fenton + O2) and adsorption processes, using activated carbon made from fish scales, as either post-treatment or pre-treatment of advanced oxidation process. Also, the effect in the reduction of toxicity of LL depurated under these methods was evaluated. The activated carbon Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area is 1.8329 m2/g and the adsorption average po...

Abstract Advanced oxidation processes based on ozonation, UV solar radiation, hydrogen peroxide, and persulfate were tested for the complete treatment of a specific landfill leachate. As a post-treatment of the advanced oxidation process, an additional adsorption process was carried out using a natural zeolite. Application of the UVsolar/O3/H2O2 process required 140 min of irradiation and the consumption of 0.67 g/L H2O2 to eliminate 56% and 17% of colour and chemical oxygen demand (COD), respec...

Abstract The aim of this study was to establish the optimal conditions of distinct factors affecting the performance of a closed solar dryer in drying Gracilaria chilensis, a commercially important red algae. The evaluated factors were algae arrangement (vertical versus horizontal), baffle existence (present versus absent), and air fan use (on versus off). Process productivity was maximized when the algae were arranged horizontally, a baffle was present, and the air fan was turned on. Of these, ...

Abstract Advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) effectively treat landfill leachate, but high energy demands and capital costs mean that further research is needed to improve AOP viability. In the present study, two AOPs (ultrasound + O 3 and solar/O 3 ; with and without H 2 O 2 ) were compared in terms of landfill leachate depuration, specific energy consumption, and associated reagent and operational costs. Solar/O 3 /H 2 O 2 attained 59.7% color elimination and 34.4% chemical oxygen demand (COD)...
