TL;DR: In this paper, the potential for future growth as aids and their potential as sustainable composite coagulants is discussed in the treatment of waste-water coagulation, in particular in the use of natural coagULants.
Abstract: Natural materials must be introduced as common as possible into the coagulant-flocculation process. Literature has indicated that it is worth developing and if possible turning natural material into commercial material. However, natural coagulants themselves are not adequate as the key treatment as their efficiency is restricted by growing constraints. Emerging technology and comprehensive studies actually contribute to the production of these limited conditions as well as to chemicals' success. Additionally, natural coagulants are widely used alongside artificial coagulants as coagulant aids. This analysis involves the form of coagulants used in the treatment of waste-water coagulation, in particular in the use of natural coagulants. This analysis paper also describes natural materials' potential for future growth as aids and their potential as sustainable composite coagulants.

TL;DR: In this paper , the authors examined the idea and substance of sustainable development, sustainable development's triple bottom line, the significance of the triplebottom line to the construction industry, corporate sustainability and knowledge transfer, and recommended steps to sustainability in construction.
Abstract: The negative consequences of construction may be minimized by using environmentally friendly construction techniques. There are many ways construction work impacts the environment. The purchasing and use of building materials and the chopping down of trees are only some of the various processes involved in construction. However, the bulk of traditional building methods have the most significant harmful impact on the environment. For future generations, sustainable construction techniques and practices must prioritize all principles of sustainability. This study examines the idea and substance of sustainable development, sustainable development's triple bottom line, the significance of the triple bottom line to the construction industry, corporate sustainability and knowledge transfer. Sustainability in construction works, how construction works affect the environment, environmental benefits of construction, barriers to sustainability in the construction industry, and recommends steps to sustainability in construction. The study also points out research gaps to be filled. In the methodology. reputable academic sources were found were found on Google Scholar, SCOPUS, the Web of Science, IEEE, Xplore, and Science Direct. As part of their study, the authors trimmed down the papers to those that best answered their research questions. After examining these sources, the authors restricted their attention to 55 sources that had a strong link to their study. Recommendations and conclusions were derived from a review of the available research as presented in this study. The study found that a project's social sustainability success depends on meeting the requirements of a wide range of stakeholders, also that sustainable construction creates a more equitable working environment, reduces costs, boosts productivity, and better health. It also provides economic advantages, more efficient use of resources, promotes the environment's protection, and increases the overall quality of life.

TL;DR: In this paper , a review of the literature on road transport infrastructure and how it affects economic growth is presented, where the main aim is to evaluate the scope and importance of transport infrastructure for economic and social growth.
Abstract: This review includes the literature on road transport infrastructure and how it affects economic growth. The main aim is to evaluate the scope and importance of transport infrastructure for economic and social growth. Research has shown that in Nigeria, the construction of road infrastructure is often chosen to meet the practical need of moving people and goods from one point to the other. The article covers a short history of the Nigerian national road network, its emergence and the expansion of Nigerian roads, and the influence of road infrastructure on agriculture and rural development. In addition, healthcare, general social change, and poverty are inclusive as the main components of this review. While this article focuses primarily on road infrastructure, there are few citations to back up points about other forms or modes of transportation. Conclusively, the research indicates a functional link between road infrastructure and economic development.

TL;DR: In this paper , the authors examine the long-term strategy in civil engineering and explore the role of environmental sustainability throughout the various stages of the civil design process, including the conceptual stage, the technical design stage, and the building stage.
Abstract: In terms of the impact of human activity on the natural environment, civil engineering is one of the most significant productive pursuits. The production and use of building materials, the advancement of engineering and construction, the use of the project after it is completed, the removal of discarded components, and other procedures all require significant energy expenditure and ongoing waste generation, which can have severe consequences for the natural environment. To meet the demands of both economic and social development, advancements in civil engineering must be made while also protecting the natural world, limiting the use of natural resources, and promoting sustainable development. This study examines the long-term strategy in civil engineering and explores the role of environmental sustainability throughout the various stages of the civil design process, including the conceptual stage, the technical design stage, and the building stage. The research finds that the construction industry should adopt practices that adhere to sustainability principles such as environmentally-friendly design, durability, energy efficiency, waste reduction, improved indoor air quality, water conservation, and the use of sustainable building materials in construction.

TL;DR: In this article, the potential application of plant-based coagulants as suitable alternatives to Chemical Coagulant due to their biodegradability, economical, non-toxic, and lower sludge volume, and treatment cost; is being studied in industrial wastewater treatment.
Abstract: Chemical coagulants have been extensively used in wastewater treatment from industrial processes due to their removal efficiencies. Notwithstanding, recent studies have reported concerns over the existence of lingering or incurable diseases, resulting from residues of metals from these non-degradable chemical coagulants which remain in the water even after treatment. The sludge produced from the treatment has also been affirmed to be hazardous and non-biodegradable, causing harm to the environment. The potential application of plant-based coagulants as suitable alternatives to chemical coagulants due to their biodegradability, economical, non-toxic, and lower sludge volume, and treatment cost; is being studied in industrial wastewater treatment. Presented in this review is the state of heart of revolutionary technique for green coagulant preparation, their properties, and application in wastewater treatment. Highlighted is the current development on improving and purification techniques of the coagulants, and probable use of dual or combine coagulants. The review also critically identifies notable research gaps based on the current limitations in previous research to valorizing potential applications.

TL;DR: In this paper , the effects of magnetite rice starch (MS) and aluminum sulfate (alum) were investigated at a constant dose (3 g or 3000 mg/L) using a Jar test (six beakers) as potential low-cost coagulants for industrial wastewater treatment.
Abstract: The use of synthetic coagulants to reduce suspended particles from drinkable water and wastewater is prompting new issues because it poses many health and environmental risks. Hence, improving the coagulation process using sophisticated nanotechnology with a magnetic field (MF) for quick recoverability emerges as being useful. In this study, the effects of magnetite rice starch (MS) and aluminum sulfate (alum) were investigated at a constant dose (3 g or 3000 mg/L) using a Jar test (six beakers) as potential low-cost coagulants for industrial wastewater treatment. At a high magnification of 1000× and a surface pore size of 298 µm, scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray (SEM/EDX) analyses were utilized to elucidate the morphology of the coagulants. Coagulation was performed at 150 rpm (quick mixing) for 2 min, and 30 rpm (slow mixing) for 15 min. Thereafter, samples were allowed to settle (10–60 min) with and without MF. The findings showed more than 65% contaminants removal (turbidity and TSS) and 30% chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal using alum while MS showed 80% contaminants removal (turbidity and TSS) and 50% COD removal. MS showed an increase of more than 3% in contaminants removal (COD, turbidity, and TSS) when exposed to MF. As a result, the use of MS together with MF in water and wastewater treatment is anticipated as an environmentally benign and effective coagulant.

TL;DR: In this paper , the authors take a look at the mechanical properties of CDW while conducting the research, credible academic sources were located on Google Scholar, SCOPUS, the Web of Science, IEEE Xplore, and Science Direct.
Abstract: The global economy depends on the building industry. Rapid building growth creates global worries about waste. Construction and demolition waste (CDW) negatively affect costs, energy, productivity, the environment, and society. Planning and storing building trash may reduce these harmful consequences. On local construction sites, waste, poor site management, and resource loss are common. The way a structure is built, how materials and equipment are transported, how employees behave, how a firm is handled, how the site is set up, and how resources are procured all contribute to construction waste, which in turn contributes significantly to the degradation of the environment due to indiscriminate disposals. This study takes a look at the mechanical properties of CDW while conducting the research, credible academic sources were located on Google Scholar, SCOPUS, the Web of Science, IEEE Xplore, and Science Direct. The publications were narrowed down to only those that were most relevant to the study's aims. After reviewing these, the authors focused on just the 49 journal articles, 15 related books, and 7 government publications that were most relevant to the research.
