Sonocatalytic fenton oxidation process using natural martite for treatment of color in water

Dindarsafa, Mahsa
This study aims to investigate the removal efficiency of an organic dye, Acid Blue 92 (AB92), using heterogeneous sono-Fenton-like process and compare it with its homogeneous counterpart. High energy planetary ball milling was applied to prepare sono-Fenton nanocatalyst from natural martite. The unmilled and ball milled samples were characterized by XRD, FT-IR, SEM, EDX and BET analyses. The catalytic performance of the 6h ball milled martite was the best for removal of AB92 in heterogeneous sono-Fenton-like process. The particle size distribution of the 6 h-milled martite was in the range of 10 nm to 90 nm, which had the highest surface area compared to the other samples. Then, the impact of main operational parameters such as initial pH, catalyst dosage and dye concentration on the AB92 degradation were investigated on both the heterogeneous and homogeneous sono-Fenton-like processes comparatively. The effect of ultrasonic power and different scavengers were just considered on heterogeneous sono-Fenton-like process. The degradation efficiency of AB92 in heterogeneous system was much higher than that of the homogeneous one. The treatment process followed pseudo-first order kinetic. Environmentally-friendly modification of the unmilled martite, low leached iron amount and repeated application at milder pH were the significant benefits of using 6 h ball milled martite in heterogeneous sono-Fenton-like process. Intermediates generated during removal were identified. 


Heterogeneous fenton oxidation process using natural martite and hydrogen peroxide for treatment of color in water
Rahmani, Amir; İmamoğlu, İpek; Khataee, Alireza; Department of Environmental Engineering (2017)
The current study aims to investigate removal of a triarylmethane dye called Acid Blue 5 (AB5) via heterogeneous Fenton-like process and compare it with its homogeneous counterpart. The heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysts used were martite and FeCl3.6H2O, respectively. The unmilled martite microparticles were processed with high energy planetary ball mill to form nanosized catalyst for heterogeneous Fentonlike process. Characterization was performed by SEM, EDX, X-ray dot mapping, BET, XRD, FT-IR, petro...
Anaerobic treatment of synthetic textile wastewater containing a reactive azo dye
Sen, S; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2003-07-01)
In this study, anaerobic treatment of synthetic textile wastewater containing a reactive azo dye, namely, Remazol Brilliant Violet 5R, was investigated. A fluidized bed reactor (FBR) was used in the study. Before the operation period, start-up of the FBR was completed in 128 days with an immobilized microorganism level of 0.069 g volatile suspended solids per g support material (pumice). Anaerobic treatment of synthetic textile wastewater revealed that 300 mg/L dye was removed in the FBR system. Chemical ox...
Photobiological hydrogen production from sugar beet molasses
Sağır, Emrah; Yücel, Ayşe Meral; Özgür, Ebru; Department of Biochemistry (2012)
The main aim of this study was to investigate biological hydrogen production from sucrose and molasses by purple non-sulphur bacteria (PNS). The hydrogen production capacities of four different PNS bacteria (Rhodobacter capsulatus (DSM 1710), Rhodobacter capsulatus YO3 (Hup-), Rhodopseudomonas palustris (DSM 127) and Rhodobacter sphaeroides O.U.001 (DSM 5864)) were tested on sucrose and molasses. The photobiological hydrogen production were performed in 50 ml and 150 ml small scale photobioreactors, in batc...
Bioflocculation of activated sludge: The role of calcium ions and extracellular polymers
Sanin, Faika Dilek (Informa UK Limited, 2000-12-01)
In an attempt to identify the bioflocculation mechanisms, this study examines the role of calcium ions in flocculation of activated sludge. Two calcium specific chelants, ethylenebis (oxyethylenenitrilo)tetraacetic acid (EGTA) and sodium hexametaphosphate (HMT) are used to extract calcium ions. Both chemicals successfully extract the calcium ions from sludge structure, which is confirmed either by an increase in solution calcium concentration or by a decrease in calcium concentration in the sludge solid mat...
Catalytic ozonation with non-polar bonded alumina phases for treatment of aqueous dye solutions in a semi-batch reactor
Erol, Funda; Ozbelge, Tuelay A. (2008-06-01)
Semi-batch experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of catalyst type, pH, initial dye concentration and production rate of ozone on the catalytic ozonation of the dyes, namely Acid Red-151 (AR-151) and Remazol Brilliant Blue R (RBBR). The used catalysts were alumina, 25% (w/w) perfluorooctyl alumina (PFOA), 50% (w/w) PFOA and 100% (w/w) PFOA. The results showed that the overall percent dye removal after 30 min of the reaction was not affected significantly by the catalyst type. However, highest...
