  1. 1. Emission of greenhouse gases from constructed wetlands : Nutrient status in relation to methane and nitrous oxide emission

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Christian Lundström; [2022]
    Keywords : Constructed wetland; greenhouse gas emission; nutrient status; ebullition; Anlagd våtmark; växthusgasutsläpp; näringsstatus; ebullition;

    Abstract : Agricultural land releases large amounts of nitrogen and phosphorus to water bodies which causes eutrophication. Creating wetlands on agricultural land is one way to prevent this major issue. However, constructed wetlands are a large emission source of greenhouse gases. READ MORE

  2. 2. Some Like It Hot: Pre-heating Prior to Bioreactor Treatment Enhances Nitrogen Removal From Mine Drainage

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära

    Author : Laura Nina Bettoni; [2022]
    Keywords : denitrification; nitrate removal; temperature; woodchip bioreactor; waste rock leachate;

    Abstract : Ammonium-nitrate based explosives (NH4NO3) used within the operations of Kiruna iron ore mine release nitrate (NO3-) into the environment, potentially having adverse effects on local river-systems. One way of reducing NO3- impacts to the environment is through a woodchip denitrifying bioreactor (DBR). READ MORE

  3. 3. Optimizing Sample Dissolution Methods of Low Water Soluble Intermediate Organic Compounds to Support Environmental Risk Assessment during Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient Manufacturing.

    University essay from Örebro universitet/Institutionen för naturvetenskap och teknik

    Author : Warda Mohammed; [2021]
    Keywords : Active pharmaceutical ingredient; API; total organic content; TOC; chemical oxygen demand COD; biological oxygen demand; BOD; Microtox; octanol-water partition coefficient; Kow; solubility.;

    Abstract : This project focus on investigating the dissolution of low water-soluble intermediate organic compounds called active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and organic substances that are manufactured by a pharmaceutical company, Cambrex Karlskoga in Sweden. Several dissolution methods were used and evaluated using methods including total organic carbon (TOC), chemical oxygen demand (COD), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and Microtox toxicity test.

  4. 4. Water quality and organic matter linkages in waters draining arable fields

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Soil and Environment

    Author : Adam Eriksson; [2021]
    Keywords : Natural organic matter NOM ; particular organic matter POM ; dissolved organic matter DOM ; allochthonous; autochthonous; Florescence index FIX ; Freshness index BIX ; Humification index HIX ; SUVA 254; E2:E3; Spectral Slope; Observation fields; microbial matter; humic matter; unfiltered samples UF ; filtered samples F45 ;

    Abstract : This study investigated leaching of natural organic matter (NOM) in twelve Swedish arable fields with regards to the quality of dissolved organic matter (DOM) and particulate organic matter (POM), using Absorbance (UV-Vis) and fluorescence spectrometry (EEM). DOM is defined as organic matter (OM) 0.45 μm. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hydrodynamic modelling of fate and transport of natural organic matter and per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances in Lake Ekoln

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Frida Ekman; [2021]
    Keywords : Ekoln; Natural organic matter NOM ; Total organic matter TOC ; Colour; degradation; sedimentation; photooxidation; PFAS; MIKE 3 FM; Ekoln; naturligt organiskt material NOM ; totalt organiskt kol TOC ; färg; nedbrytning; sedimentation; foto-oxidation; PFAS; MIKE 3 FM;

    Abstract : Societies are facing great challenges with obtaining a good quality and quantity of drinking water in the context of climate change. Increases in natural organic matter (NOM) and per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been observed in lakes and drinking water the past years, which is of great concern for water treatment plants in Sweden.
