  1. 1. Fungal degradation patterns and toxicity of furfurylated wood

    Författare :Annica Pilgård; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Daphtox; Quantitative real-time PCR; Furfurylation; Microtox; Basidiomycota; Acetylation; Wood modification.; Daphnia magna; Thermal modification; Trametes versicolor; Decay; Vibrio fischeri;

    Sammanfattning : The demand for timber products is increasing with global population and affluence. Concerns regarding conventionally used toxic wood preservatives and the deforestation of tropical forests have become more prominent both socially and politically. Wood based products are generally recognised as an environmentally favourable raw material. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Characterization, toxicity and treatment of wood leachate generated outdoors by the wood-based industry

    Författare :Henric Svensson; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Nyckelord :AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Wood leachate; Log yard runoff; Stormwater; Toxicity; Artemia salina; Vibrio fischeri; Constructed wetlands; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Wood is a natural raw material, and would hardly be considered a risk to the environment. However, the handling of wood materials on an industrial scale has been shown to have a negative impact on water bodies that run-off from industrial sites that process wood-based materials. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Treatment of Textile Wastewater by Combining Biological Processes and Advanced Oxidation

    Författare :Marisa Punzi; Bioteknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Azo dye; textile wastewater; biological treatment; biofilm; microbial community; DGGE; green algae; photo-Fenton; ozone; toxicity; mutagenicity; LCA; cost analysis;

    Sammanfattning : Treatment of textile wastewater is challenging because the water contains toxic compounds that have low biodegradability. Dyes, detergents, surfactants, biocides and more are used to improve the textile process and to make the clothes resistant to physical, chemical and biological agents. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Characterisation of pollutants in stormwater treatment facilities

    Författare :Kristin Karlsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : The overall objective of this thesis is to increase the knowledge of both the pollutants within stormwater treatment facilities and the maintenance of these facilities. This objective has been achieved by studying water and sediment with respect to metal concentrations, fractionation, and toxicity from ponds, sedimentation tanks, and gully pots with different catchment characteristics as well as from the sediment removal process.

  5. 5. Assessment of waters with complex contamination : Effect-based methods for evaluating wastewater treatment requirements and efficiency

    Författare :Veronica Ribé; Åke Forsberg; Monica Odlare; Emma Nehrenheim; Rune Berglind; Magnus Breitholtz; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Nyckelord :Effect-based test methods; wastewater treatment; ecotoxicology; bioassays; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The access to clean water is one of the prerequisites for a modern, industrialized society. The amount of water withdrawn for human activities has risen exponentially during the last 100 years. This rise in water use is accompanied by the production of vast quantities of contaminated water.
