  • Value addition of cotton stalks through enzymatic production of
           xylooligosaccharides
    • Authors: Ashis Kumar Samanta, Jayaram Chikkerur, Sohini Roy, Atul Purushottam Kolte, Arindam Dhali, Kandalam Giridhar, Manpal Sridhar, Swaraj Senani
      Pages: 1 - 11
      Abstract: The present work focuses on the value addition of cotton stalks through xylan extraction and enzymatic production of xylooligosaccharides (XOS); a pentose based prebiotic. Chemical analysis revealed that cotton stalk contains neutral detergent fibre 87.66%, acid detergent fibre 72.81%, hemicellulose 14.85%, cellulose 53.08%, and acid detergent lignin 19.73%. The xylan yield from cotton stalks was ranged from 1.75 to 7.36% when recovered with lithium hydroxide, while it reached up to 14% by using sodium and potassium hydroxides. The maximum recovery of xylan was attained at 4% NaOH together with steam and 8% KOH under overnight incubation. Commercial xylanase enzyme was used for enzymatic hydrolysis of xylan to produce XOS. The XOS concentration was ranged from 0.83 to maximum value of 2.19 mg/ml in the hydrolysate at pH 5.0, enzyme dose of 5 U, for 4 h of hydrolysis time. The findings substantiated the potentiality of cotton stalk as a raw material for xylan extraction <i>vis a vis</i> production of XOS.

  • Oil removal from produced water by agriculture waste adsorbents
    • Authors: Abdalrahman D. Alsulaili, Asmaa M. Fahim
      Pages: 12 - 31
      Abstract: In this investigation, oil was removed from PW using adsorbents prepared from agriculture waste (date pits and walnut shells) packed in filter beds. Several parameters were examined, such as (contact time, oil content, TSS, conductivity, TDS, turbidity, and pH). The study showed that both the walnut shell and date pit achieved well. Furthermore, MB adsorption on the carbonised date pits and crushed Walnut shells with different concentrations were explored. The maximum adsorption capacities of oil content for walnut shell or date bits was 87%, 80%; respectively. The oil adsorption was confirmed through three models: Freundlich, Langmuir and Redlich-Peterson models. The Redlich-Peterson equation was more applicable for Date pits and Walnut shells rather than the Freundlich or Langmuir equation. Whereas its correlation coefficients showed high R2 = 0.9998 and 0.9917; respectively. In addition, Freundlich model was more applicable for Walnut shells rather than Date pits because its R2 = 0.9507 for walnut shells.

  • Seasonal variation and spatial distribution of groundwater pollutants in
           east coastal region from Bamban to Thiruvanmiyur of Tamil Nadu, India
    • Authors: P. Umarani, A. Ramu, A. Babu Ponnusami, M. Dhanasekarapandian
      Pages: 32 - 57
      Abstract: The present investigation is focused on seasonal variation and spatial distribution of the groundwater pollutants in the study area during post monsoon (January), summer (May), pre monsoon (August) and monsoon seasons (November). Geologically, the study area comprises quaternary alluvium made up clay, silt and sandstone deposits. Water quality parameters (WQPs) such as pH, EC, TDS, TA, total hardness, chloride, sulphate, bicarbonate, carbonate, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, nitrate were chosen. GIS technique was used to find out the spatial distribution of the soluble pollutants. The WQPs were compared with the standard guidelines values as recommended by the WHO for drinking and public health. The abundance of major ions groundwater was found in the following order: Na<SUP align="right">+</SUP> > Ca<SUP align="right">2+</SUP> > Mg<SUP align="right">2+</SUP> > K<SUP align="right">+</SUP> and Cl<SUP align="right">−</SUP> > HCO <span class="limes"><span class="numup">−</span><span class="overdn">3</span></span> > NO <span class="limes"><span class="numup">−</span><span class="overdn">3</span></span> > SO <span class="limes"><span class="numup">2</span><span class="overdn">4</span></span><superscript>⁻</superscript > F − during all seasons. The strong positive correlation between sodium and chloride was observed high, confirming the influence of seawater intrusion into the groundwater aquifer. Sampling location (Kottaipattinam) showed abnormal EC, TDS during summer and pre monsoon seasons. In these places, the groundwater aquifers were found to be contaminated which may be occurred from sewage effluents and excess use of fertilisers and pesticides for agriculture.

  • Kinetic and thermodynamic studies of sorption of lead and cadmium from
           aqueous solution by Moringa oleifera pod wastes
    • Authors: Folahan Adekola, Haleemat Adegoke, Oluwaseun Arowosaiye, Gabreal Olatunji
      Pages: 58 - 82
      Abstract: Equilibrium sorption of Pb(II) and Cd(II) from aqueous solution by <i>Moringa oleifera</i> pods waste was conducted under batch conditions. Effects of operating variables such as initial concentration, contact time, adsorbent dose, pH and temperature on the sorption of these heavy metals have been studied. The optimum pH for the adsorption was found to be 5.0 and the adsorption process was found to be exothermic for both metal ions. The competitive adsorption characteristics of the combinations of binary mixtures of aqueous metal ion species, Pb<SUP align="right">2+</SUP> (aq) and Cd<SUP align="right">2+</SUP> (aq), on the adsorbent were also investigated. The Langmuir, Freundlich, Temkin and Dubinin Radushkevich adsorption isotherm models were used to analyse the equilibrium data. Kinetics data evaluation showed that the adsorption followed a pseudo-second order model. A solution of 0.05 M HCl has been found to be sufficient for the regeneration of spent adsorbent with up to 90% recovery for the two metal ions.

  • The lab-scale and thermogravimetric analysis of the catalytic and
           non-catalytic co-pyrolysis of oak and canteen waste mixture
    • Authors: Gábor Nagy, Ágnes Wopera, Tamás Koós
      Pages: 83 - 96
      Abstract: Pyrolysis is a thermochemical process used to produce utilisable materials of various phases. The energy efficiency of the canteen waste pyrolysis can be increased with the addition of oak, so a 2:1 mixture of oak and canteen waste was pyrolysed. To examine the efficiency of catalysts on the co-pyrolysis, the mixture was pyrolysed with and without catalysts. The catalysts used were calcined dolomite, calcined zeolite and NaCl, in 5 wt%. The process was examined with laboratory experiments and thermogravimetric (TG) method. The catalysts increased the base material conversion and gas yield. There was no significant change in the H<SUB align="right">2/CO ratio. The high heating value of the samples with NaCl and calcined dolomite significantly improved. The residual carbon of the samples with catalysts decreased, compared to the original mixture. The effects of calcined zeolite and NaCl can be observed at low temperatures but the effects of calcined dolomite appear at 650°C.

      Abstract: Bioremediation has been found as an effective way to remove PAHs contaminants. Biochar and nutrients as effective factors can raise removal percent. The effect of these two factors was investigated for remediation of anthracene in the presence and absence of two microorganisms named <i>Bacillus subtilis</i> and <i>Streptomyces sp</i>. To study biochar impression, a sandy loam soil was mixed with biochar (10% w: w). Nutrients effect was studied by addition of K<SUB align="right">2HPO<SUB align="right">4 and NH<SUB align="right">4NO<SUB align="right">3 to the soil. Anthracene degradation was quantified using gas chromatography. The highest rate of removal was observed for the incubation of <i>Bacillus sabtilis</i> with the addition of biochar and nutrients. <i>Bacillus sabtilis</i> had decreased the soil Anthracene by 92%, and <i>Streptomyces sp</i>. bacteria with the same condition could degrade by 90.71% after 90 days. This study shows, the addition of biochar and nutrients could increase the anthracene bioremediation by 11 and 7% respectively.

  • Use of wood ash waste to stabilise soils
    • Authors: K. Divya Krishnan, P. Kiruthika, P.T. Ravichandran
      Pages: 112 - 120
      Abstract: The stability of the structure constructed over an expansive soil becomes questionable when it comes in contact with water. This is mainly due to the montmorillonite minerals in soil which causes expansiveness and resulting in failure problems in foundation. To overcome the problems of soil, the stabilisation method is one of the techniques which can contribute modifications. This study was carried out with two clay soil exhibiting high expansive nature is treated with an agrowaste, Woodash of varying percentages of 3%, 5%, 7%, 9%, 11% at different curing periods. The response of the treated soils was studied through the strength test at different curing periods and the improvement was confirmed by microstructural analysis. From the experimental results, it was observed that the increasing percentages of Woodash content in clay soils will leads in gaining bearing strength and suggesting an effective utilisation method of agrowaste.

  • Reducing the ammonia content of hospital liquid waste by active carbon
           plastic ore adsorption
    • Authors: Tati Ruhmawati, Teguh Budiansyah, Elanda Fikri
      Pages: 121 - 129
      Abstract: Considerable visits from patients increases the content of ammonia within the liquid waste of the hospital which, in turn, results in water pollution. Adsorption of active carbon is an alternative technology in reducing the ammonia level of liquid waste. This research aims at revealing the contact time of active carbon plastic ore towards the degression of ammonia level of liquid waste. This research was an experiment designed by Pretest-Postest design with control. The population of the research was all the liquid waste taken from the influent of RSUD Al Ihsan Bandung, while the sample of the research was taken from the population by time combining collection technique. The collected data was then analysed using ANOVA. The results of the research show that the average of the degression percentage for contact time of sixty minutes is 1,840%, 90 minutes 35.07% and 120 minutes 48.77%. The value of t acquired from ANOVA testing is 0.001, smaller than 0.05 (α 5%). There is significant influence of the variations of contact time of active carbon plastic ore on the degression of ammonia level of liquid waste. The results of the research could be utilised by the hospital to manage its liquid waste.

  • Value stream mapping for sustainable change at a Swedish dairy farm
         This is an Open Access Article Open Access Article

    • Authors: Martin Melin, Henrik Barth
      Pages: 130 - 140
      Abstract: This case study increases our understanding of Lean implementation in which value stream mapping (VSM) is used to create an action plan at a small dairy and cattle farm in southwest Sweden. The researchers, the farmer-owner, and farm employees followed a step-by-step approach that resulted in ideas for operational improvements for the dairy activity. Data were collected in interviews with the farmer/owner, researcher participation in workshops, and researcher observations. The results reveal that VSM is an effective way to create a culture of collaboration among the farm staff and to better define their roles and responsibilities as well as improve routines, communications, and task completion. In the two-to-three year period following the VSM project, specific improvements were observed in milk production/quality and animal health. The results also reveal that while Lean principles are relevant given the repetitive nature of agriculture routines and tasks, the VSM element of lead-time reduction is less relevant owing to the unique value adding biological processes in the agriculture sector.
