The Impact of D-amino acids on Formation and Integrity of Biofilm – Effect of Growth Condition and Bacteria Type
Biofouling is a major issue in applying nanofiltration and reverse osmosis technologies for wastewater treatment. Biofilm formed on the surface of membranes will severely decline the flux and cause energy waste. In this ...
Effect of Kaolinite on the Fate and Transport of Carbon Nanotubes
Fate and transport of the engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) in aquatic systems has been increasingly concerned due to their potential human exposure and reported toxicity to the living organisms. The ubiquitous naturally ...
Inactivation of antibiotic resistant bacteria and genes by conventional and advanced disinfection methods.
This research investigates the impact of chlorination, ultraviolet-C (UVC) irradiation, and titanium dioxide photocatalysis (UV-A/TiO2) on the destruction of the multi-drug resistant New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase ...
Scaling behavior of concentrated urine membrane distillation systems for space applications
One challenge facing deep space exploration is the need to provide water with minimal input from Earth. Consequently, it is important to develop robust technology that can extract >90% of the water from urine produced by ...
