Recovery of plantbased coproducts for use in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals

Glucomannans (or mannans), pectic polysaccharides and glucans are three of the most important groups of plant-derived polysaccharides that have been associated with different bioactivities. Their functional properties, such as the ability to bind water and oil, may also contribute to their potential application in the cosmetics field. Scientific investigations on Aloe vera have gained more attention over recent years due to its reputed medicinal properties. Some publications have appeared in respected scientific journals that have made appreciable contributions to the discovery of the functions and properties of aloe, 'nature's gift'. The use of and research on this plant up to 1998 have been well described in two well-referenced reviews (Grindlay and Reynolds, 1986 Reynolds and Dweck, 1999). Currently, the plant is most widely used in areas of skin care, cosmetics and wound-healing. The studies on the application of konjac glucomannan have been extended greatly from food and food...

Chevron refinery as cooling tower makeup From

Zero Liquid Discharge Figure Diagram

The concept of water reuse and zero liquid discharge in petroleum refineries has been proposed and debated for many years 77 . The principal drawback for zero liquid discharge is the generation of large amount of solid waste, mostly salt from the wastewater. It is this problem that caused USEPA to back off from zero liquid discharge in the 1970s, and it remains the primary deterrent today. However, there are two refineries in Mexico that have recently gone to zero discharge 78 . Wastewater from the refineries and nearby municipalities are treated with biological, physical chemical processes, RO, brine concentrator evaporator and crystallizer to maximize water recycle to the refineries, minimize water makeup from the river and to attain zero liquid discharge. Figure 21 shows a process schematic diagram of the refinery wastewater recycle zero liquid discharge system.

Good housekeeping recommendations for specific industries to reduce waste

The principal steps in processing livestock include (1) rendering and bleeding (2) scalding and or skin removal (3) internal organ evisceration (4) washing, chilling, and cooling (5) packaging and (6) clean-up (US-AEP 1997). Waste includes carcasses, hides, hoofs, heads, feathers, manure, offal, viscera, bones, fat and meat trimmings, blood and other fluids, and off-spec animals and meat. There are several options for reducing this waste. Install strainers along evisceration lines to keep byproducts off the floor. Attach strainers to drains in the de-hairing process area. Send blood to a blood collection facility. Remove fat from conveyor belts by scraping rather than spraying. Before washing areas, collect solids with squeegees, brooms, or shovels. Waste reuse and recycling options include animal and pet food, composting or vermicomposting of paunch manure, fertilizers, cosmetics, blood meal, gelatin from heads, and glue from hides.

Cyano Complexes Hexacyanoferrates

Bleaches containing hexacyanoferrates (very stable complexes of iron and cyanide) are used in only a few photographic processes. These bleaches contain both ferri- and ferrocyanide, but the action of hypo and other chemicals in the effluent reduces most of the ferricyanide to ferrocyanide. A total cyanide analysis measures both of these ions, but they should not be confused with simple (free) cyanides. Unlike free cyanide, hexacyanoferrates have a low level of toxicity and are used in many common human applications, such as cosmetics (blue eyeshadow), paints, fabric pigments, and laundry bluing 5,6 . Cyano complexes are not typically found in black and white processing effluents (see subsequent section, Ferrocyanide Precipitation).

Contemporary Patterns And Processes In Plants And Microbes

An important follow-up issue for microbial (or other) taxa is whether the composition of natural communities predictably influences the responses of those communities to environmental alteration. Traditionally, microbial communities often have been treated as black boxes in functional ecological models, a situation that Steve Allison and Jennifer Martiny would like to see rectified. In Chapter 8, these authors review experiments and observations from the scientific literature to address questions about the composition of a microbial community following exposure to environmental perturbations. Is the microbial community resistant to the disturbance (tend not to change in taxonomic composition) Is it resilient (change in makeup but then return quickly to the pre-disturbance condition) If an altered composition is sustained, is the new community functionally redundant to the original Based on the authors' literature review, the answers to these questions usually seem to be no, no, and...

Properties of and Transfers between the Key Reservoirs

That upon which we walk) which can be described as the interface where the lithosphere (rocks), the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, and the biosphere intersect. Like these three spheres, soils have a solid phase (made up of weathered rocks from the lithosphere and decayed matter from the biosphere), a liquid phase of pore water from the hydrosphere, and a gas phase of air trapped in spaces between the solid and liquid parts. The pedosphere deserves our attention because of its many roles in communicating with these other spheres, and the processes that provide living organisms soil nutrients for growing edible vegetation. Sometimes denoted as a separate reservoir, sediments formed from the chemical weathering and physical degradation of rocks exist both on land and under the hydrosphere. The solid phases existing in the pedosphere, soils and sediments have relatively low solubility and change much more slowly in composition and physical makeup than either the hydrosphere or atmosphere....

Sources of Detergents in Waters and Wastewaters

The concentrations of detergent that actually find their way into wastewaters and surface water bodies have quite diverse origins (a) Soaps and detergents, as well as their component compounds, are introduced into wastewaters and water bodies at the point of their manufacture, at storage facilities and distribution warehouses, and at points of accidental spills on their routes of transportation (the origin of pollution is dealt with in this chapter). (b) The additional industrial origin of detergent pollution notably results from the use of surfactants in various industries, such as textiles, cosmetics, leather tanning and products, paper, metals, dyes and paints, production of domestic soaps and detergents, and from the use of detergents in commercial industrial laundries and dry cleaners. (c) The contribution from agricultural activities is due to the surface runoff transporting of surfactants that are included in the formulation of insecticides and fungicides 27 . (d) The origin...

Wastewater Characteristics and Sources

The specific types of wastewater sources in the phosphate fertilizer industry are (a) water treatment plant wastes from raw water filtration, clarification, softening and deionization, which principally consist of only the impurities removed from the raw water (such as carbonates, hydroxides, bicarbonates, and silica) plus minor quantities of treatment chemicals (b) closed-loop cooling tower blowdown, the quality of which varies with the makeup of water impurities and inhibitor chemicals used (note the only cooling water contamination from process liquids is through mechanical leaks in heat exchanger equipment, and Table 7 shows the normal range of contaminants that may be found in cooling water blowdown systems 26 ) (c) boiler blowdown, which is similar to cooling tower blowdown but the quality differs as shown in Table 8 26 (d) contaminated water or gypsum pond water, which is the impounded and reused water that accumulates sizable concentrations of many cations and anions, but...

Climate Change Impacts

Although the IPCC does predict an overall increase in timber production, they do caution that there will be regional variability due to local factors such as precipitation, temperature, humidity, soil type, and severe weather events. In California, for example, they project that initially (around 2020) climate change will increase harvests by causing an increased growth but by 2100 there will be reductions in areas of softwood growth. They also predict there will be substantial negative impacts to other products from forests, such as seeds, nuts, resins, plants used in pharmaceutical and botanical medicine, cosmetics, and hunting resources.

Exposure to NDMA through other sources

NDMA has been reported in a range of cosmetics and personal care products with concentrations of up to 24ng g 73 . However, only 1-4 of the NDMA in cosmetic preparations was estimated to penetrate through the skin 74 . At the maximum concentration reported by Spiegelhalder and Preussmann, 10 g of product would be expected to result in 2-10 ng of uptake of NDMA through the skin. Based on this limited amount of data cosmetics and toiletries are probably only a negligible source of NDMA for

The Foundations Of The Global Governance Of Climate Change Ihe Initial Normative Context Universal Participation

Nineteen-eighty-eight also saw the inauguration of the IPCC in November. UNEP and the WMO created the panel to research and report the current state of climate change knowledge. Thirty states undertook this largely scientific enterprise (eleven developing, including the crucial Southern states India, China, and Brazil) in three working groups the science of climate change, the impacts of climate change, and potential policy responses to climate change.45 The express purpose of the IPCC was to provide a firm foundation for future negotiations. The North-heavy makeup of the panel reflected the current state of climate science expertise, rather than an understanding of appropriate participation. However, the IPCC was not immune to the alterations of the normative context ongoing in the ozone negotiations.

Domestic Material Consumption DMC

DMC measures the annual amount of raw materials extracted from the domestic territory (DE) plus all imports minus all exports. The definition of DMC thus corresponds to apparent consumption, not final consumption. It is important to keep this definition in mind when interpreting DMC. From the point of view of final consumption, an imported commodity is functionally equivalent to a domestically produced commodity. In DMC, though, these functional equivalents lead to great differences. Similarly, producing a commodity for export is intuitively unrelated to the domestic consumption of materials, but according to the makeup of DMC, all wastes occurring in the course of this production are a component of domestic consumption. Thus, DMC can be better interpreted as domestic waste potential and refers to all materials used and consumed in both production and consumption processes (Weisz et al. 2005a). This national waste potential will either add to environmental pressure within the national...

Slurry Bioreactor System For Soil Decontamination

The mixing bioreactor receives and mixes the contaminated soil, makeup process water and supplements of salicylate and succinate as nutrients. Salicylate induces the naphthalene degradation operon on PAN plasmids. This system has been shown to degrade phenanthrene and anthracene. The naphthalene pathway may also play a role in carcinogenic PAH (CPAH) metabolism. Succinate is a byproduct of naphthalene metabolism and serves as a general carbon source. The first reactor in series will remove easily degradable carbon and increase biological activity against more recalcitrant PAHs (i.e., three-ring compounds and higher).

Key reasons for exploiting plantderived compounds from coproducts

Amounts of potentially interesting compounds (Laufenberg et al, 2003). The disposal of these residues often creates an enormous environmental problem. Thus, a number of by-products and or co-products of agricultural businesses are presently returned to the land as fertilisers or soil modifiers, fed to animals or fish as nutrients, burnt for energy or applied to value-added conversions. The finding of alternative uses for these natural residues, for instance in non-food areas such as pharmaceuticals and cosmetics with a high value added, might help to alleviate this situation. With the dramatic increase in biotechnological activity comes a concomitant responsibility to increase the capacity and sophistication of waste management systems. 18.2.2 Preference for natural products versus synthetic compounds driving force for food, cosmetics and pharmacological fields The development of new co-products derived from inherently low-value (or poorly characterised) raw materials might be...

Federal Regulations and Laws

Traditionally, environmental laws and regulations have controlled the releases of pollutants and wastes. Only in recent years have laws and regulations gradually covered the production of certain environmentally unfriendly products and services that also caused environmental pollution. For example, DDT, CFCs, asbestos, leaded gasoline, certain kinds of plastics, medicines, cosmetics, fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides have been restricted in production. Similarly, consulting services in designing products and process, in equipment manufacturing and supply, and in education and training reduce significantly adverse impacts of the environmental quality.

Biosurfactants as fermentation products from yeast

Many microorganisms (including bacteria, fungi and yeasts) excrete different types of biosurfactants (including mycolic acids, glycolipids, lipopoly-saccharides, lipoproteins-lipopeptides and phospholipids) (Desai and Banat, 1997). Biosurfactants reduce the surface tension in the same manner as chemically synthesized tensides. The biological origin, low toxicity and their environmental bio-compatibility favour these fermentation products over others for application in many fields, including cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, emulsifiers, preservatives and detergents. During the microbial production of sophorose lipids by Candida bombicola, glucose and or triglycerides (oil and fat from plants) are partially degraded to obtain energy and a carbon source for growth of microorganisms. Simultaneously, the tensidic glycolipids are produced via gluconeogenesis, hydroxylation of fatty acids and so on (Lang and Rau, 1999). With Candida bombicola as a catalyst, and glucose and fatty acids from...

Reality Check Political Economic And Financial On Redd

T ime and again we have seen that it is the underlying social, economic and political makeup of society at any given time - 'its cultural climate', no less -that causes deforestation. We know far less about what brings deforestation under control, except that experience suggest the need for strong government institutions to implement stated policies and resist elite groups who have traditionally pursued the exploitation of the forest.

Recirculating Cooling Water Subcategory

In a recirculating cooling water system, the cooling water is withdrawn from the water source and passed through condensers several times before being discharged to the receiving water. After each pass through the condenser, heat is removed from the water through evaporation. Evaporation is carried out in cooling ponds or canals, in mechanical draft evaporative cooling towers, and in natural draft evaporative cooling towers. In order to maintain a sufficient quantity of water for cooling, additional makeup water must be withdrawn from the water source to replace the water that evaporates.

Upgrading of the monooligomeric components

Flavour compounds, substances stimulating taste and smell, are extremely important for the food, animal-feed, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries, as they represent more than 25 of the total food-additive market. In the past, they were mainly extracted from plants. However, they are most often present at very low concentrations and their extraction is thus difficult and expensive. Moreover, their availability is highly dependent on agricultural variations, plant diseases or sociopolitical stability of the producing countries. In order to bypass these difficulties, chemical synthesis of most of the flavours of industrial interest has been performed leading to cheap molecules being widely available.

Evolution Of The Global Strategy

Achieving Food for All will require sustainable intensification of agriculture in many production environments. The genetic makeup of an animal is the key to how it will respond to different aspects of the total production environment, particularly those aspects related to the uses demanded of the animal, to climate, feed and water, exposure to disease, and to type of husbandry. This tenet must be accepted to achieve and maintain sustainable farming systems, to realize production and productivity increases, to manipulate product quality, and to minimize risk of production losses over time. By definition, sustainability is specific to the production environment. Further, there is and will remain a diverse range of production environments globally.

Production of Various Products

OMWW has a sugar content of about 1.6-5 (w v) that can serve as a source for alcohol production (Fiestas Ros de Ursinos J.A., 1961a,b, 1967 Fernandez-Bolanos J. et al., 1983). A possibility for the utilization of sugars is their transformation to ethanol and recovery of the alcohol by distillation (Martinengri G.B., 1963 Oliveira de J.S., 1974). Oliveira de (1974) studied the effect of the yeasts Saccharomyces wine 31 B2, S. mollasses, bread yeast, Candida utilis and the natural fauna on ethanol production from OMWW and, with the exception of some reports (Martinengri G.B., 1963), no essential differences in the amounts of alcohol produced 0.5-0.57 (w v) were found. Some of early efforts extracted alcohol from OMWW by evaporation. The extracted alcohol was used in foods, fuels, cosmetics, etc. (PT69240, 1979 PT69785, 1979).

Pollution Prevention Measures

Quality to allow greater reuse reducing the volume of wastewater treated and discharged prolonging process bath life, enabling sites to spend less on process bath makeup and reducing bath treatment and disposal costs and improving treated effluent quality by enhanced wastewater treatment.19 The various types of water minimization techniques are given in the following sections. High-rate recycle systems consist of a water recirculation loop that recycles 95 or more of the water from a process for reuse. They are used for product cooling, cleaning, and air pollution control, in operations like blast furnace iron making, sintering, basic oxygen furnace steel making, vacuum degassing, continuous casting and hot forming operations. However, during the recycling operation a portion of the water is discharged to prevent concentration buildup of contaminants within the system. These blowdown streams are either treated at an end-of-pipe treatment system or discharged to surface water or...

Phosphoric Acid Production

Acid Phosphoric Pfd

In one of the earlier reports on the phosphate mining and manufacturing industry in Florida and its water pollution control efforts, Wakefield 31 gave the following generalized account. Because of the huge volumes of water being used for washing, hydraulic sizing, flotation, and concentration of phosphate ores (i.e., one of the main mines of a larger company requires about 60 MGD or 2.63 m3 s), and since makeup water is not readily available and excess wastewater constitutes a major disposal problem, the recovery and reuse of water have always been of great importance. Waste products from the mining and processing operation consist of large quantities of nonphosphating sands and clays, together with unrecovered phosphatic materials less than 300 mesh in size, and they are pumped into huge lagoons. Easily settled sands fill the near-end, leaving the rest to be gradually filled with slimes (a semicolloidal water

Specific Effects of UVB Radiation on Plants

Ultraviolet Leaf Plants

Ultraviolet radiation is efficiently absorbed by most organic substances, which causes many photochemical reactions in the living cells. The nucleus of each cell consists primarily of genetic material in the form of DNA. Nuclear DNA is inherently unstable and can be damaged by spontaneous or metabolically induced changes generated by environment. DNA is highly sensitive to UV-B radiation which can cause damage resulting in heritable mutations if not repaired and thus, can significantly influence various physiological processes. DNA is considered the primary absorbing compound in the cell in the UV-B region of the spectrum. Exposure of DNA to UV-B radiation can result in (1) breakage of bonds in the DNA and DNA-protein cross links (2) chromosomal breakage (3) chromosomal aberrations and (4) exchange and production of toxic and mutagenic photoproducts (e.g., cyclobutane pyrimidine dimmers (CPDs), 6, 4 pyrimidine- pyrimidone or 6, 4-photoproduct, thymine glycols, and pyrimidine...

Ammonium Phosphate Fertilizer and Phosphoric Acid Plant

Air streams from the digestion system, vacuum cooler, concentrator, and other areas where fluorine is evolved are connected to a highly efficient absorption system, providing extremely high volumes of water relative to the stream. The effluent from this absorption system forms part of the recycled water and is eventually discharged as part of the product used for fertilizer manufacture. The Minnesota plant requires a constant recirculating water load in excess of 3000 gpm (11.4 m3 min), but multiple use and recycle reduce makeup requirements to less than 400 gpm (1.5 m3 min) or a mere 13 of total water use.

What Reverse Osmosis Is

Major problems inherent in general applications of RO systems have to do with (1) the presence of particulate and colloidal matter in feed water, (2) precipitation of soluble salts, and (3) physical and chemical makeup of the feed water. All RO membranes can become clogged, some more readily than others. This problem is most severe for spiral-wound and hollow-fiber modules, especially when submicron and colloidal particles enter the unit (larger particulate matter can be easily removed by standard filtration methods). A similar problem is the occurrence of concentration-polarization, previously discussed for ED processes. Concentration-polarization is caused by an accumulation of solute on or near the membrane surface and results in lower flux and reduced salt rejection. membrane, the resultant permeate has a low pH. The operational solution is to remove the gas from the permeate by deaerators, by strong-base anion resins or a complementary system-for example, RO and ion exchange, in...

Consequences of Altered Plant Nutrition

Naturally occurring plants are very responsive to environmental changes and are often stressed, with the chemical makeup foliar contents in remarkable flux (Buwai and Trlica, 1977a, 1977b Bokhari, 1978 Bokhari and Trent, 1985a, 1985b Mole and Joern, 1993 Mole et al., 1994). In addition

Highvalue components and wholewaste exploitation

Many waste streams contain small levels of components that command an apparent and attractive market value. For example, phytochemicals from fruit and vegetable trimmings might be exploited for the production of nutraceuticals, cosmetics or even pharmaceuticals. There has been much interest and research dedicated to exploiting such components with a view to adding value to co-product streams (Waldron, 2004 Waldron et al, 2004). However, whilst it is often possible, and even relatively straightforward in a laboratory to develop a process to extract a 'high-value' component, it is frequently uneconomical to do so commercially. This may be because the bulk residues remaining after extraction are of lower value, and may actually cost more in disposal. Therefore, it is important to develop approaches that aim to exploit food co-products in their entirety, ensuring that all components so derived may be of marketable quality. This requires a research and development approach that links all...

Utilizing part of the waste

In the past, industrially produced fish gelatin was mostly used for nonfood purposes, such as photoresists in printing. However, food and pharmaceuticals now represent the larger market for fish gelatin, and researchers are working to increase both yield and bloom strength. Gelatin is essentially denatured collagen, so fish skins are also a source of collagen - a product used in cosmetics, nutraceuticals, and pharmaceuticals (Johns & Courts, 1977 Nagai & Suzuki, 2000). Pearl essence are crystals produced from fish scales through a process that removes, collects and purifies the crystals for use in paint pigments, cosmetics and a host of other products where unique luster is important. Soft, cloudy lotions and shampoos often contain pearl essence. Pearl essence pigments are also found in some high-end automotive paints.

Phosphate Manufacturing

Flow Chart Waste Segregation

The containment of phossy water from phosphorus transfer and storage operations is an important control measure in the phosphorus-consuming sub-category B. Although displaced phossy water is normally shipped back to the phosphorus-producing facility, the usual practice in phosphorus storage tanks is to maintain a water blanket over the phosphorus for safety reasons. This practice is undesirable because the addition of makeup water often results in the discharge of phossy water, unless an auxiliary tank collects phossy water overflows from the storage tanks, thus ensuring zero discharge. A closed-loop system is then possible if the phossy water from the auxiliary tank is reused as makeup for the main phosphorus tank. 1. In ammonium phosphate production and mixed and blend fertilizer manufacturing, one possibility is the integration of an ammonia process condensate steam stripping column into the condensate-boiler feedwater systems of an ammonia plant, with or without further stripper...

Estuarine and Continental Shelf Sediments

Although estuarine sediments contain few species relative to most other sedimentary habitats, they nonetheless represent hotspots for ecosystem processes that can extend well beyond the estuarine sediments. Of the ecosystem goods and services associated with shelf and nearshore ocean areas, people are most aware of provisioning of food (e.g., fish and shellfish), which has huge commercial and cultural importance in coastal societies worldwide. Even aquaculture businesses often rely on wild (natural) fisheries (e.g., for fishmeal) or natural supply of food (e.g., phytoplankton) for aquaculture species and, in some cases, for provision of brood and juvenile stocks. Marine plants are used as food, particularly in Asia, and seaweed extracts such as alginates and other phycocolloids are used in many industrial and food applications (e.g., manufacture of films, rubber, linoleum, cosmetics, paints, cheeses, lotions). The living components of estuarine systems provide not only the primary and...

Microalgae as Second Generation Energy Plants

It is not astonishing at all that up to now any economic success of indoor and outdoor systems was achieved by the production of high-value products such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, products for healthcare, natural colours, unsaturated fatty acids, essential amino acids, etc. Those high-value substances allow a realistic competition of microalgal cultures with classical production methods such as isolation of linolic acids from herbs, etc. They allow microalgae cultures to bring in their specific advantages such as production under reliable sterile conditions, no risk of contamination with human viruses, prions, etc. Thus, it is conceivable to use microalgal cultures also for genetic engineering techniques to obtain, for example, specially designed antibodies, recombinant proteins, etc. Appropriate techniques are available for microalgae, e.g., in Chlamydomonas sp. (green algae) genetic

Fruit and vegetable processing or preservation

In order to preserve them and increase their shelf life, fruits and vegetables are usually canned, frozen or dried. These processes generate around 6 million tonnes of solid waste every year and large quantities of wastewater (3.5-8.5 m3 per tonne of raw material) are also necessary because of specific hygiene and legal constraints. The proportion of waste varies depending on the fruit or vegetable, ranging from 1 of raw material for cranberries to 20-30 for broccoli or carrot. Waste consists essentially of stems, leaves and stalks, which are more often spread on land, composted or used as animal feed. Some vegetable peels have been shown to contain valuable phenolics and bioactive components (Rodriguez et al., 2004 Suutarinen et al., 2004). Fruit stones and kernels are used for natural oils in the food industry, cosmetics or pharmaceuticals. Some leafy by-products (from

Remote Sensors And Instruments

These sensor systems detect solar radiation that has been diffusely reflected (scattered) upward from surface features. The wavelength ranges that provide useful information include the ultraviolet, visible, near-infrared, and middle-infrared ranges. Reflected solar-sensing systems discriminate materials that have differing patterns of wavelength-specific absorption, which relate to the chemical makeup and physical structure of the material. Because they depend on sunlight as a source, these systems can provide useful images only during daylight hours. Changing atmospheric conditions and changes in illumination with time of day and season can pose interpretive problems. Cloud cover is a particular problem. Reflected solar remote-sensing systems are the most common type used to monitor earth resources.

Conclusion and future trends

More research, including genetic engeering, is also necessary to improve the capability of depolymerising enzymes to completely or selectively degrade cell-wall-rich wastes. These research efforts will bring progress in the use of these wastes, leading to large-scale production (for example, of ethanol) in addition, new products may emerge such as useful industrial intermediates, high-value chemicals, surfactants and cosmetics.

Treatment for Recycle Reuse and Zero Discharge

Another case involves the 300,000 bpd Chevron refinery in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is the largest user of potable water in the area 75 . Nearly half of the refinery's water demand (23,000 m3 day) is used as makeup water in the cooling towers. The water utility identified the potential water reuse for this application in 1979. A pilot plant testing program was completed in 1987, which demonstrated that using lime soda ash softening treatment on secondary effluent would produce a consistently high-quality reclaimed water for use as makeup water in the refinery's cooling towers. A full-scale plant (23,000 m3 day) was completed in 1995. Figure 20 shows a process flow schematic of the reclamation plant. Secondary effluent from the WWTP is stored in a 6400 m3 equalization tank. The influent is pumped to two 17 m diameter solids contact clarifiers after chemical treatment with lime soda ash. The clarifier overflow is pH adjusted and filtered by four deep-bed, continuous-backwash sand...

Tillage

The ecology of root-microbe interactions after minimum tillage practices is vastly different from that after extensive plowing to prepare the seedbed. The changes in the physical and chemical properties of the soil resulting from tillage greatly alter the matrix-supporting growth of the microbial population. Within a given soil, there is considerable variation in the composition of the microbial community and diversity with depth in the profile. In no-till agricultural systems, microbial activities differed drastically with depth, with the greatest microbial activity occurring near the no-till surface in the tilled system, activities were more evenly distributed throughout the plow layer (Doran, 1980). The composition of the microbial community influenced the rate of residue decomposition and nutrient cycling in both no-till and conventionally tilled systems (Beare et al., 1993). Decomposition in the no-till system was dominated by fungi, while the bacterial component was found to be...

Species in Guatemala

There are an estimated 502 tree and 120 shrub species that are used for various purposes in Guatemala. Forest species can be grouped according to their principal usage timber, firewood, human consumption, forage, medicine, ornament and those that produce latex or industrial resin. In addition to these primary uses, tree and bush species may be used for dye, handicraft, tanning works, rituals, oil extraction, cosmetics and hallucinogens.

Bleaching

The conversion of silver metal back to silver halide is accomplished by using a mild oxidizing agent known as a bleaching agent together with a water-soluble halide salt, such as potassium bromide, in a water solution. Together these are known as a photographic bleach. The bleaching agent is mild enough to not adversely affect the gelatin or dye in the emulsion, yet strong enough to take electrons from the silver metal in the presence of the halide, thus converting the silver back to silver halide. Typically, iron complexes such as iron EDTA (ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid), iron PDTA (propylenediamine tetraacetic acid) or less commonly ferricyanide Fe(CN)63- are used since they can supply the proper bleaching activity without harming the emulsion. These are all relatively nontoxic salts that are cheap, commercially available, and safe to handle. Two are commonly used in food products EDTA is found in bread, baked goods, and pharmaceuticals 5 , whereas ferricyanide is used to...

Greenhouse

What Kennett and Stott noticed was that across the geological boundary separating the Palaeocene and Eocene there was a huge shift in the carbon isotopic makeup of the shells there was suddenly a lot more carbon-12, a shift sometimes described as going 'negative'. This was unusual. The sort of change they found was not what you'd normally expect to find in forams. Not only that, but the relationship between those living on the surface - the so-called planktonic forams - and those living at the bottom - the benthics - went askew around 55 million years ago. Under normal conditions, the surface dwellers tend to have more carbon-13 than their comrades in the depths. Given the choice, living organisms prefer using the lighter carbon for growth because it requires less energy to build organic matter. At the surface there are often intense blooms as forams and other living organisms go in for a frenzy of growth. The result is that most of the carbon-12 is used up, leaving only the heavier...

Washing of Raw Wool

The lanolin extracted from the wool is purified further for use in cosmetics, hand cream, boot-polish, and so on. Part of the permeate from the ultrafiltration is recycled to save fresh water. A particular advantage arises from the fact that the dissolved sweat components exhibit

Economic Uses

Saline lakes are a source of many evaporitic minerals which have a wide range of uses in manufacturing, construction, agriculture, medicine as well as chemical industries. Such evaporites include halite (NaCl), uranium, zeolites (hydrated alumino-silicate minerals with an 'open' structure that can accommodate a wide variety of cations, such as Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+ and others, i.e., Na2Al2Si3O10-2H2O (natrolite) used as molecular filters and ion exchange agents), lithium (used in heat transfer applications and salts used in pharmacology as mood stabilizers), potash (K2O -fertilizer, glass, soap) and borax (Na2B4O710H2O -detergents, cosmetics, glass, pottery). Saline lakes are also a source of Glauber's salts (Na2SO4 - used in manufacturing of detergents, carpet fresheners, glass,

Electrochemical Cell

Posttreatment requirement --Posttreatment may be required to recover metals from the cathodic regenerating solution if the solution cannot be reused directly as bath makeup. Also, recovered wastewater mist eventually be disposed of or treated because of the buildup of organtcs and other impurities 1n the bath. Stripped metals and metal-laden cathodes can be shipped off site to smelters or reclamation facilities.

Grape and wine

The majority of the solid wastes are produced during the first steps of the processing of the grapes. Grapes are harvested and crushed, resulting in mash and stems (2-8 of processed material). The mash is then pressed and separated into juice and pomace (10-20 ). Stems and pomace are the principal by-products of wine production and are the source of valuable components (ethanol (see Section 16.5.4), tartrate, citric acid (see Section 16.5.5), hydrocolloids (see Section 16.4), dietary fibres (see Section 16.3.1)) (Schieber et al., 2001). High-value antioxidants can be extracted from stems - such as resveratrol used in nutraceuticals, cosmetics or biopharmaceuti-cals. Pomace also contains other antioxidants (procyanidins, polyphenol extracts) and pigments (anthocyanin) (Tomas-Barberan et al., 2004) and can be used for production of grape seed oil.

Plants and medicine

Reported that the NCI, Monsanto, Smith Kline, Merck and Glaxo have revived plant screening programmes. Affymax and Shaman are new companies in the USA developing drugs solely from natural products, and with a lot of emphasis on traditional medicines. The other main source of a revival in interest in medicinal plants is consumer demand for 'natural products'. While consumers are unlikely to express a concern about the source material for major life-saving drugs, they do express a significant concern about the sources of over-the-counter drugs and cosmetics, as the success of some natural products shops reveals.

Water Treatment

Best practices related to energy efficiency are not around the water treatment unit itself, although some significant pumping energy requirements are in this unit. The main actions to reduce energy consumption are in condensate recovery and avoiding water losses in general, even as steam. They allow lower water makeup, fewer chemicals and less energy consumption, allied to a reduced environmental impact.

Boiler Blowdown

In modern high-pressure systems, blowdown water is normally of better quality than the water supply. This is because plant intake water is treated using clarification, filtration, lime lime soda softening, ion exchange, evaporation, and in a few cases reverse osmosis to produce makeup for the boiler feedwater. The high-quality blowdown water is often reused within the plant for cooling water makeup or it is recycled through the water treatment and used as boiler feedwater.

Corrosion

Copper alloys are used extensively in power plant condensers, and as a result, copper can usually go into a corrosion product film or directly into solution as an ion or as a precipitate in the initial stages of condensation by tube corrosion. As corrosion products form and increase in thickness, the corrosion rate decreases until a steady state is achieved. Studies indicate that copper release is a function of flow rate more so than of the salt content of the makeup water.

Example 2

Plant 1245 is an oil- and gas-fired electric generating facility. The samples chosen are the influent and effluent from a once-through cooling tower stream. The influent sample was taken from the makeup stream comprised of river water, with the effluent stream being a direct discharge from the condensers to the river. The cooling water does not undergo any treatment to remove pollutants. The data reflect the changes that may occur to such a stream due to evaporation and pipe corrosion. Table 8 presents plant-specific data for plant 1245.

Reasons to Restore

Many plants in tropical dry forests are known to be of value for nontimber products, including medicines, biopharmaceuticals, food products, potential sources for crop improvement (e.g., an endemic wild rice species in New Caledonia), perfumes, cosmetics, etc. Also, TDFs have significant economic value if managed under multipurpose, multiuser forestry approaches, including the incorporation of innovative eco- and cultural tourism. Restoration should clearly play a major role in both scenarios, with community involvement built into these programmes.

Remote Sensing

The sensors in remote-sensing systems measure electromagnetic radiation (EMR) that has interacted with the earth's surface. Interactions with matter can change the direction, intensity, wavelength content, and polarization of EMR. The nature of these changes is dependent on the chemical makeup and physical structure of the material exposed to the EMR. Changes in EMR resulting from its interactions with the earth's surface therefore provide major clues to the characteristics of the surface materials. EMR that is transmitted passes through a material (or through the boundary between two materials). Materials can also absorb EMR. Usually absorption is wavelength specific that is, more energy is absorbed at some wavelengths than at others. EMR that is absorbed is transformed into heat energy, which raises the material's temperature. Some of that heat energy may then be emitted as EMR at a wavelength dependent on the material's temperature. The lower the temperature, the longer the...

Boiler Water

In order to control these corroding processes, two types of boiler water treatment are necessary internal and external. External boiler water treatment is usually done immediately after industrial water treatment, deeper removal of dissolved solids, particularly major participants in scale formation, like calcium and magnesium, and to some extent silica. Silica is a chemical compound that also forms scale and may bring specific problems to high pressure steam turbines and superheating areas of the boiler. Since no treatment can completely remove all contaminants and their amount keeps growing, because of the concentration cycle, so supplementary internal treatment is needed. This is done by addition of chemicals that convert scale-forming compounds into a sludge, which can be withdrawn by bottom purge or blowdown. Chemicals that are generally used in this treatment, are sodium salts of carbonate, aluminate, phosphate, tri- and polyphosphate, sulfite and special compounds as polymers....

Bleach Regeneration

Iron EDTA and iron PDTA bleaches used in color negative film and some color paper processes are usually regenerated in large photo labs. In most instances, the bleach overflow is collected and the ferrous ion oxidized to ferric by simple aeration, then makeup chemicals are added to bring the solution back to replenisher strength 125 .

These establishments are engaged in the manufacture of corrugated and solid fiber boxes and containers from purchased paperboard. The principal commodities of this industry are boxes, pads, partitions, display items, pallets, corrugated sheets, food packaging, and nonfood (e.g., soaps, cosmetics, and medicinal products) packaging.

Molecular Clouds

Geology Wedge Uplift

Spectra from molecular clouds reveal that they consist mostly of molecular hydrogen (H2), but molecular hydrogen does not emit or absorb radio wave radiation, so it is not useful as a probe. But the spectra emitted from other molecules have proven useful for studying molecular clouds. some of the most useful include carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, ammonia, water, methyl alcohol, and formaldehyde, and many dozens of other complex molecules. These molecules are used as tracers of the physical and chemical makeup of the molecular clouds and are interpreted to have formed in the clouds. The spectral lines from molecular clouds can also be used to determine the composition of the clouds, their temperature, density, and distribution. One of the major discoveries about molecular clouds made in the past few decades is that the clouds are not isolated bodies, but form giant molecular cloud complexes, as large as 50 parsecs across, each containing millions of stars. The Milky Way Galaxy...
