A review of metallurgical slag for efficient wastewater treatment: Pretreatment, performance and mechanism

Recently, Dr Yi-Tong Wang (Associate Prof., College of Metallurgy and Energy, North China University of Science and Technology) and Prof. Zhen Fang published a review article in Journal of Cleaner Production about using metallurgical slag to treatment wastewater.

Metallurgical slag as a by-product of the metallurgical industry not only has huge storage capacity and low price, but also causes serious damage to the environment and threatens the safety of human life by heavy metal in metallurgical slag leaching. The approach of metallurgical slag used to remove pollutants in wastewater is considered to achieve the purpose of “using waste to treat waste”. This review focuses on three pretreatment methods of metallurgical slag including acid/alkali pretreatment, mixed pretreatment, and core-shell structure pretreatment, and their structural properties and performance optimization after pretreatment. The removal mechanism of typical pollutants, catalytic performance, reaction conditions, and recyclability of metallurgical slag such as steel slag, blast furnace slag, red mud, copper slag, and manganese slag are summarized and compared.

Related results were accepted in Journal of Cleaner Production:

After pretreatment, metallurgical slag can effectively remove heavy metals, dyes, antibiotics and other pollutants from wastewater. 冶金渣经过预处理后可高效去除废水中的重金属、染料和抗生素等污染物。

 

冶金渣高效处理废水的研究进展:预处理、性能和机理

最近,王一同博士(华北理工大学冶金与能源学院副教授)和方真教授在国际学术期刊Journal of Cleaner Production 发表题为“冶金渣高效处理废水的研究进展:预处理、性能和机理”的综述性论文。

冶金渣是冶金工业的副产品,不仅储量巨大而且价格低廉。但是冶金渣堆积浸出过程中的重金属对环境造成严重破坏,威胁人类生命安全。使用冶金渣去除废水中污染物可以达到“以废治废”的目的。综述了冶金渣的三种预处理方法,包括酸碱预处理、混合预处理和核壳结构预处理,以及预处理后的结构性能和性能优化。对钢渣、高炉渣、赤泥、铜渣和锰渣等冶金渣的典型污染物去除机理、催化性能、反应条件和可回收性进行了总结和比较。该论文为冶金渣应用于废水处理方面提供了新思路。详情可见:

Removal of pollutants from wastewater using coffee waste as adsorbent: A review

Recently, Dr Yi-Tong Wang (Associate Prof., College of Metallurgy and Energy, North China University of Science and Technology) and Prof. Zhen Fang published a review article in Journal of Water Process Engineering about using coffee waste as adsorbent to remove pollutants from wastewater.

The problem of water pollution is becoming more and more serious, and many pollutants are carcinogenic and pose a serious threat to global sustainable and green development. Adsorption is a promising wastewater treatment process, and agricultural wastes as adsorbents are popular in various wastewater treatments. The world produces > 6 million tons of coffee crops annually, and every ton of coffee generates 0.68 ton of coffee waste. Because coffee waste (i) has a surface with a porous structure, (ii) contains cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin structure that can provide abundant functional groups, and (iii) is recyclable to make it have remarkable performance in wastewater treatment, and its reuse not only saves processing costs but also contributes to the sustainable development of the environment. This review focuses on the application of coffee waste sorbents in the removal of pollutants from wastewater. The methods and advantages and disadvantages of physical pretreatment, acid pretreatment, alkali pretreatment, and magnetic pretreatment of coffee waste were reviewed. Four types of adsorption experiments including adsorption experiments, adsorption kinetics, adsorption isotherms, and adsorption thermodynamics of heavy metals, dyes, antibiotics, and other organic pollutants removal efficiency are investigated and their adsorption potential is discussed. Finally, a brief conclusion and future perspective for coffee waste that applies to wastewater treatment are provided. This review paper provides a new idea for the application of solid waste to wastewater treatment.

The coffee waste without any pretreatment or after physical pretreatment, acid-base pretreatment and magnetic pretreatment can effectively remove heavy metals, dyes, antibiotics and other pollutants in wastewater. 未经任何预处理或经过物理预处理、酸预处理、碱预处理和磁性预处理的咖啡废弃物可有效去除废水中的重金属、染料、抗生素和其他污染物。

咖啡废弃物用作吸附剂去除废水中污染物的研究进展

最近,王一同博士(华北理工大学冶金与能源学院副教授)和方真教授在国际学术期刊Journal of Water Process Engineering 发表题为“咖啡废料用作吸附剂去除废水中污染物的研究进展”的综述性论文。

水污染问题越来越严重,许多污染物具有致癌性,对全球可持续发展和绿色发展构成严重威胁。吸附是一种很有前途的废水处理方法,农业废弃物作为吸附剂在各种废水处理中得到广泛应用。全世界每年生产600万吨咖啡农作物,每生产1吨咖啡产生0.68吨咖啡废弃物。因为咖啡废弃物(i)具有多孔结构的表面;(ii)含有纤维素、半纤维素和木质素结构,能够提供丰富的官能团;(iii)具有可回收性。这些使其在废水处理中具有显著的性能,其重复利用不仅节约了处理成本,而且有利于环境的可持续发展。本文重点综述了咖啡废弃物吸附剂去除废水中污染物的应用。综述了咖啡废弃物的物理预处理、酸预处理、碱预处理和磁性预处理的方法及其优缺点。研究了吸附实验、吸附动力学、吸附等温线、吸附热力学等四类吸附实验对重金属、染料、抗生素和其他有机污染物的去除效率,并讨论了它们的吸附潜力。最后,对咖啡废弃物在废水处理中的应用前景进行了简要的总结和展望。该论文为固体废物应用于废水处理方面提供了新思路。详情可见:

书<有机废物产生物燃料..>出版Springer book “Production of Biofuels and Chemicals from Sustainable Recycling of Organic Solid Waste”

8月 7th, 2022

Springer book “Production of Biofuels and Chemicals from Sustainable Recycling of Organic Solid Waste”

Recently, Springer has published a book entitled “Production of Biofuels and Chemicals from Sustainable Recycling of Organic Solid Waste” edited by Profs. Zhen Fang, RL Smith Jr. and Dr. LJ Xu, Springer, Hardcover ISBN 978-981-16-6161-7, 506 pages, 2022 (DOI: https://doi.org/10.1007/978-981-16-6162-4).

World demand for polymers and their many related products has led to an explosive increase in the amount of plastic waste generated that is having serious consequences on the environment, nature and human health. Sustainable recycling of organic solid waste (OSW), which includes municipal solid waste, organic sludge waste, polymer solid waste and agricultural waste, will become of even increasing importance, as world population increases and material recycle becomes a necessary characteristic of innovative technology. This text provides a compilation of state-of-the-art techniques for reducing, reusing and recycling OSW and for converting these underutilized carbon resources into valuable chemicals and biofuels with sustainable methods.  Chapter topics include manufacture of value-added products such as fuels, commodity chemicals and bio-based functional materials from OSW feedstocks as well as methods for processing and handling many types of OSW.  Aimed at improving conversion effectiveness and developing innovative techniques for new value-added products, this book was conceived as a collection of studies on state-of-art techniques and developed specifically for producing fuels and chemicals from multiple organic solid wastes via sustainable recycling methods. Discussion on related topics in terms of recent advances and their assessment and the promise and prospects of new methods or new technological strategies are provided to readers in a concise and informative format. Each individual chapter was contributed by globally-selected experts or professionals and was peer-reviewed and edited for content and consistency in terminology.

This book contains 14 chapters contributed by leading experts in the field. The text is arranged into five key parts:

Part I. Introduction (Chapter 1)

Part II. Production of Biofuels and Chemicals by Thermo-Chemical Conversion Processes (Chapters 2-4)

Part III. Production of Biofuels and Chemicals by Biodegration (Chapters 5-7)

Part IV. Production of Liquid Biofuels with New Technologies (Chapters 8-12)

Part V. Techno-Economic Analysis (Chapters 13 and 14)

The text should be of interest to professionals in academia and industry who are working in the fields of natural renewable materials, biorefinery of lignocellulose, biofuels and environmental engineering. It can also be used as comprehensive references for university students with backgrounds in chemical engineering, material science and environmental engineering.

This book is the eleventh book of the series entitled, “Biofuels and Biorefineries”, (highly-downloaded books with 200 k chapter downloads and 4 books among “top 25% springer e-books”, Prof. Zhen Fang is serving as Editor-in-Chief), and the twentieth English book edited/authored by Prof. Zhen Fang since 2009.
