Adsorption of metal ions with biochars derived from biomass wastes in a fixed column: adsorption isotherm and process simulation
Publication date: Available online 4 April 2019Source: Journal of Industrial and Engineering ChemistryAuthor(s): Yu Ping Zhang, Vincentius Surya Kurnia Adi, Hsin-Liang Huang, Hong-Ping Lin, Zi-Hao HuangAbstractBiochars were derived from wood and water caltrop shell waste for the adsorption of Cr(III) and Cu(II) in solutions. In the competitive adsorption, Cu(II) had a good affinity for the water caltrop shell and blended biochars. The blended biochar was a mixture of wood and water caltrop shell biochars. Each biochar adsorption equilibrium data fit well with the Freundlich model. The effectiveness of the adsorption of Cr(...

High-performance ZnS@graphite composites prepared through scalable high-energy ball milling as novel anodes in lithium-ion batteries
Publication date: Available online 4 April 2019Source: Journal of Industrial and Engineering ChemistryAuthor(s): Juyeon Yoon, Il Tae Kim, Joonwon Bae, Jaehyun HurAbstractA ZnS@graphite composite was developed using a high-energy mechanical milling (HEBM) for use as an anode in lithium-ion batteries. Compared to previous studies on ZnS-based electrodes prepared using different processes, the HEBM is advantageous because of its simplicity, scalability, and greater performance. In this work, we mainly focused on the finding of optimal carbon-based matrix that can significantly enhance the performance of ZnS-based composite el...

Characterization of the effect of surfactant on biomass adaptation and microbial community in sewage treatment by anaerobic membrane bioreactor
Publication date: Available online 4 April 2019Source: Journal of Industrial and Engineering ChemistryAuthor(s): Yulun Nie, Rong Chen, Xike Tian, Yu-You LiAbstractThe impact of surfactant on biomass adaptation and microbial community response in sewage treatment was studied by anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR). An increase in abundance and reduction in diversity for Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes but a decrease in distribution for Proteobacteria were observed when surfactant was present in sewage. A significant change at genus level in the microbial diversity and distribution for Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes was confirme...

Synergistic Effect of Binanoenzyme and Cryogel Column on the Production of Formic Acid From Carbondioxide
In this study, binanoenzyme (BNE) was synthesized using FateDH and Cyt-C in same bionano-interface; by formation of formate dehydrogenase-co-cytochrome C by using ANADOLUCA method. The synthesized novel binanoenzyme was embedded into HEMA based cryogel column and the conversion of CO2 to formic acid was investigated by using this cryogel column. To maintain the conversion, CO2 saturated water was passed through the cryogel column and the converted formic acid was analyzed using HPLC. The parameters which has an effect on conversion such as pH, sample volume and CO2 concentration were analyzed. The results showed that the c...
