Removal of Arsenic Contamination from Water Using Magnetite Nanoparticles

Introduction: Water contamination is a global problem that can result in illness and death. Consumption of contaminated drinking water is particularly problematic in third world countries where inadequate purification processes, coupled with rapidly increasing population growth and industrialization pose serious health risks. One of the most common and deadly contaminants Read more…

Evaluation of Nitrate Retention Additives for Developing Environmentally Friendly Manures

Abstract: Activated carbon is a readily available material that can be added to fertilizers or manures to reduce nitrate nitrogen (NO3-N) contamination of surface and near-surface groundwater. To test the nitrate adsorption performance of activated carbon, its absorbance was compared to that of used wall board (gypsum), sand, carbon, iron Read more…

Development of a novel hybrid polymer composite with coir dust and fly ash reinforcements and investigation of its dielectric nature

A PDF version of this paper is available here. Abstract: Fly ash is an industrial waste. Coir dust is a by-product of coir fiber production. A novel low cost¬†hybrid polymer composite, using coir dust and fly ash particle reinforcements is proposed in this¬†paper. Investigation of the dielectric behavior of this Read more…
