Abstract The degradation of the antibiotic thiamphenicol has been studied by photoelectro-Fenton (PEF) process with UVA light using pyrite particles as catalyst source. Pyrite is a sulfide mineral that naturally acidifies the reaction medium and releases Fe2+, thus promoting the effective generation of OH from Fenton's reaction. The assays were made in an IrO2/air-diffusion cell, which yielded similar results to a boron-doped diamond (BDD)/air-diffusion one at a lower cost. In dark conditions, e...

Abstract Acid mine drainage (AMD) containing highly concentrated sulfate in the wastewater has caused severe impacts to human health and the environment. Implementing an economical and efficient method for sulfate reduction by utilizing low-cost adsorbents presents a significant challenge. In this study, ferrous slag (FS) and carbon steel slag (CSS) obtained from a local steel factory were utilized as adsorbents to remove sulfate from AMD. The influences of adsorbent dosage, adsorption time, ads...

Abstract Brazil contains the largest volume of freshwater of any nation in the world; however, this essential natural resource is threatened by rapid increases in water consumption and water quality degradation, mainly as a result of anthropogenic pressures. Declining water quality has become an increasingly more significant global concern as economic activities and human populations expand and climate change markedly alters hydrological cycles. Changes in land-use/land-cover (LULC) pattern have...

Abstract The role of cyanobacteria from soil biocrusts in restoring degraded land is gaining interest in recent years because of their critical role in enhancing soil fertility and preventing erosion. However, soil restoration through cyanobacterial inoculation remains a challenge for large-scale restoration efforts and new methodologies for effective cyanobacterial application need to be developed. Here, we propose a bioenvironmental approach to inoculate soils with pelletized cyanobacteria fro...

Abstract Pollution by NO3−-N seriously threatens the quality of shallow groundwater (SG) around Erhai Lake, which is the 2nd largest source of freshwater in the plateau area in southwest China; further, NO3−-N affects the lake water quality and human health. We collected SG samples during the dry and wet seasons in 2018 and 2019, and the potential NO3−-N sources and their fates were identified in SG by NO3− isotopes and hydrochemical methods. Our results showed that the NO3−-N concentrations in ...

Abstract In this research, recycled polyacrylonitrile fibers (PANFs) acquired from the textile recycling process were amino-functionalized in one simple step by means of ethylenediamine (EDA). The amino-functionalized polyacrylonitrile fibers (AF-PANFs) were utilized for adsorption of Hg(II) ions from aquatic media. Temperature and contact time during the synthesis were optimized by the Central Composite Design (CCD) method. FE-SEM, EDS, BET, and FT-IR analysis, and pHZPC measurement were conduc...

Abstract Cu-ZSM-5 zeolite membrane catalysts prepared by ion exchange method were synthesized on paper-like sintered stainless fibers (PSSFs) with three-dimensional net structure for the catalytic wet peroxide oxidation (CWPO) of phenol in structured fixed bed reactor. The experimental results exhibited that the BET of optimal catalyst was 165 m2/g with the ion exchange concentration of 0.1 M and time of 24 h, respectively, at temperature of 40 °C and one time ion exchange. The FT-IR results ill...

Abstract Soil aggregation plays a critical role in the maintenance of soil structure, as well as in its productivity. Fertilization influences soil aggregation, especially by regulating soil organic carbon (SOC) and total nitrogen (TN) contents in aggregate fractions. The present study evaluated the influence of three contrasting fertilizer regimes (unfertilized control –CK-, mineral fertilization –NPK- and manure combined with NPK –NPKM) on soil aggregate stability, aggregate-associated organic...

Abstract This study investigates the effect of foreign direct investment and education on environmental quality for Asian countries by controlling income, energy consumption, and urbanization for the period of 1990–2018. We have applied panel cointegration techniques to probe for long-run associations among the variables. The empirical results indicate the existence of cointegration between the variables. Dynamic ordinary least square and fully modified least square methods are applied to estima...

Abstract Man-made multi-level ditches system is designed to irrigate, drain and collect runoff from surrounding fields. It is not only the conduit of water and field carbon, but also the linear-like wetland with complex carbon cycling. However, the contribution of ditches system to CO2 and CH4 emission has rarely been assessed. To understand the emission pattern of CO2 and CH4 from ditches, this study investigated the emission fluxes of CO2 and CH4 in a three-level ditches system in Chengdu Plai...
