Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Results confirm the capability of the proposed hybrid oxidation scheme for the remediation of textile wastewater, and it is likely that azo group stripping and oxidative cleavage of dyes occur due to the nucleophilic attack of active chlorine species during electro-oxidation.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A two-compartment membrane electroflotation reactor has been demonstrated for recovery of recyclable chromium(III) from tannery spent liquor effluent and the recovered Cr(OH)3 was successfully demonstrated for tanning of cowhide.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the photo-assisted electrochemical oxidation (PAE) was applied to dye-bath effluents with a high organic load, and the results revealed that the degradation mechanism of PAE is entirely different from that of electrochemical oxidization; in particular, the byproducts formed in the photo assisted process are free from chlorinated organic compounds.

TL;DR: In this article, a continuous flow synthesis (CFS) method is proposed for the efficient, effective and reproducible synthesis of inorganic compounds, and the effect of synthesis route on particle size, size distribution, and crystallinity is compared.
Abstract: Advanced materials are essential to the quality of modern day life, but the synthesis of these compounds is often inefficient in terms of energy, time and resources; especially when considering the hydrothermal batch methods used to prepare many such compounds – often requiring week-long reaction times with variable yields and product quality. In contrast, Continuous flow synthesis (CFS) provides a more readily scalable means for the efficient, effective and reproducible synthesis of inorganic compounds. This publication demonstrates the novel CFS of several metal ammonium phosphates and compare the effect of synthesis route on particle size, size distribution, and crystallinity.

TL;DR: A comprehensive review of studies on electrodialysis applications in wastewater treatment, outlining the current status and the future prospect is presented, showing that zero or minimal liquid discharge approaches can be techno-economically affordable and competitive.
Abstract: This paper presents a comprehensive review of studies on electrodialysis (ED) applications in wastewater treatment, outlining the current status and the future prospect. ED is a membrane process of separation under the action of an electric field, where ions are selectively transported across ion-exchange membranes. ED of both conventional or unconventional fashion has been tested to treat several waste or spent aqueous solutions, including effluents from various industrial processes, municipal wastewater or salt water treatment plants, and animal farms. Properties such as selectivity, high separation efficiency, and chemical-free treatment make ED methods adequate for desalination and other treatments with significant environmental benefits. ED technologies can be used in operations of concentration, dilution, desalination, regeneration, and valorisation to reclaim wastewater and recover water and/or other products, e.g., heavy metal ions, salts, acids/bases, nutrients, and organics, or electrical energy. Intense research activity has been directed towards developing enhanced or novel systems, showing that zero or minimal liquid discharge approaches can be techno-economically affordable and competitive. Despite few real plants having been installed, recent developments are opening new routes for the large-scale use of ED techniques in a plethora of treatment processes for wastewater.
