    Nyckelord :constructed wetland; free water surface flow; wastewater treatment; Kenya; Sweden; vegetation; harvest; Cyperus papyrus; Echinochloa pyramidalis; mass load; phosphorus; ammonium; suspended solids; pollutant removal; hydraulics; residence time distribution; data analysis methods; Konstgjorda våtmarker; avloppsvatten; vattenrening; fosfor; ammonium; partiklar; Kenya; Sverige; växter; Cyperus papyrus; Echinochloa pyramidalis; skörd; hydraulik; dataanalysmetod;

    Sammanfattning : Degradation of water resources has become one of the most pressing global concerns currently facing mankind. Constructed Wetlands (CWs) represent a concept to combat deterioration of water resources by acting as buffers between wastewater and receiving water bodies. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Particulate phosphorus accumulation and net retention in constructed wetlands receiving agricultural runoff : Critical analysis of factors affecting retention estimates

    Författare :Karin Johannesson; Karin Tonderski; Stefan Weisner; Uno Wennergren; Ben Surridge; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Phosphorus retention; constructed wetlands; agriculture; sampling strategy;

    Sammanfattning : Övergödning är ett allvarligt miljöproblem, som bland annat orsakar omfattande blomningar av alger och blågrönbakterier. I söt- och brackvatten är fosfor ofta det mest begränsande näringsämnet för dessa organismer, varför en minskning av fosfortillförseln är nödvändig för att nå förbättringar. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Optimizing processes for biological nitrogen removal in Nakivubo wetland, Uganda

    Författare :Joseph Kyambadde; Gunnel Dalhammar; Karin Tonderski-Sundblad; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Environmental technology; Ammonium-oxidizing bacteria; Biological nitrogen removal; Coliform retention; Constructed wetlands; Cyperus papyrus; Miljöteknik; Environmental engineering; Miljöteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The ability of Nakivubo wetland (which has performed tertiary water treatment for Kampala city for the past 40 years) to respond to pollution and to protect the water quality of Inner Murchison Bay of Lake Victoria was investigated. The aim of this study was to assess the capacity of Nakivubo wetland to remove nitrogen from the wastewater after its recent encroachment and modification, in order to optimize biological nitrogen removal processes using constructed wetland technology.

    Sammanfattning : Antibiotics are biologically active and are globally used in humans and animal medicine for treatment and in sub-therapeutic amounts as growth promoters in animal husbandry, aquaculture and agriculture. After excretion, inappropriate disposal and discharge from drug production facilities they enter into water bodies either as intact drugs, metabolites or transformed products. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Treatment wetlands in a tropical climate

    Författare :Hristina Bojcevska; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : The decrease of water resources values as a result of eutrophication is a major problem in numerous lakes around the world, including the Great African Lakes. One of the most important tasks to limit this eutrophication, is to decrease the nutrient input from land-based activities. LÄS MER
