AbstractThe optimization of the COD removal from palm oil mill effluent (POME) has done. The correlation of concentration and pH of POME, and Trans membrane pressure (TMP) of Reverse Osmosis (RO) membrane was optimized by response surface method using a second order polynomial model with Box Behken design consist of 17 runs. To determine whether the model was adequate for representing the experimental data; it was indicated by the ANNOVA table (p-value, lack of fit and R2 values).  The main factor influenced the COD removal was concentration and pH of POME.  The optimum conditions were determined from 3D response surface and 2D contour graphs i.e. 28.30% of POME concentration at pH 10.75 and TMP 0.69 kPa to yield 24.1372 mg/L of COD value. The results demonstrate that the response surface method effective to minimize the number of experiment. Keywords: POME; RO membrane; RSM; ANN; COD

In nature chitosan is a plentiful polymer with high heavy metal ion uptake capacity due to chitosan’s functional groups that chelate with the positive surfaces of heavy metal ions. In this study, epichlorohydrin was used as a crosslink to prepare the copper-imprinted chitosan as a pattern to enable the selectivity property and increase adsorption capacity. The effects of the cross-linker, PH, initial concentration and time were examined in this study to identify the optimum amount of each to remove copper metal ions from waste water by imprinted chitosan. This composite was characterized by Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) test to determine the existence of copper ions in chitosan crosslinked with epichlorohydrin. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) tests were also done to compare the surfaces of crosslinked chitosan and the removal of copper by imprinted chitosan. PH adsorption was tested from 3 to 7 and the initial concentration and time investigated were between 10 and 100 mg/l and 0 and 120 minutes respectively. The maximum capacity to adsorb was found to be at PH 7, initial concentration of 100mg/l at 90 minutes with 0.1 gr chitosan. Ultimately, the maximum adsorbent amount achieved for effective Cu(II) removal was 74.37 mg/g.

Kemampuan lempung alam Cengar untuk melepaskan kation Co(II) dari air limbah model telah diuji dengan proses adsorpsi. Lempung alam Cengar diimpregnasi dengan larutan garam ammonium 1 molar untuk meningkatkan kemampuan adsorpsinya. Kapasitas adsorpsi kation Co(II) oleh lempung Cengar yang diimpregnasi meningkat di bawah pengaruh waktu kontak dan menurun dengan temperatur. Beberapa model kinetika yaitu order-pertama pseudo, order-kedua pseudo, model Elovich dan difusi intra-partikel telah digunakan untuk mengevaluasi kinetika dan mekanisme interaksi Co(II) pada lempung Cengar. Mekanisme adsorpsi Co(II)-lempung Cengar mengikuti kinetika order-kedua pseudo pada waktu perolehan adsorbat maksimum 120 menit. Dengan model Elovich didapatkan adsorben lempung Cengar memiliki permukaan yang heterogen. Energi aktivasi proses adsorpsi juga dievaluasi di bawah pengaruh temperatur dan didapatkan energi aktivasi yang negatif.

The optimization of COD removal from palm oil mill effluent (POME) using the Reverse Osmosis (RO) membrane was investigated. Experimental conditions for reduce the COD value of POME were achieved successfully using the Box Behken design. The values of affecting factors (POME concentration, pH and Transmembrane pressure were optimized according to the polynomial regression model. The predicted conditions to produce lower COD values were found to be POME concentration (vol. %) =28.30, pH =10.75 and Transmembrane pressure= 0.69 kPa. The predicted of COD value was 24.137 mg/l which in good agreed with experiment value as 25.763 mg/l was obtained.

Cutinase is a hydrolytic enzyme that has both properties of lipase and esterase, thus finding its use in many areas. Previous studies have investigated both upstream and downstream processes for cutinase production from microbial source. However, no study has yet to address the use of membrane chromatography for cutinase purification, which is more favourable in terms of process resolution and product throughput as compared to the conventional gel chromatography. Hydrophobic interaction was chosen as the separation mechanism for cutinase purification in this study. The optimisation of cutinase purification in two different types of chromatographic media; conventional packed-gel and membrane matrix, were pre-determined by the best compromise between the recovery and purity of the purified cutinase. It was found that the optimised condition were of pH 4.0 and 1.0 M ammonium sulfate for the conventional column (50% recovery, 4.8-fold purity) and pH 6.0 with 1.5 M ammonium sulfate for the membrane?matrix column(87% recovery, 30-fold purity). Preferential interaction analysis was used to describe the protein chromatographic behaviour in each chromatographic media. Graph of natural algorithm of protein retention data to the function of salt concentration at pH 4.0 and 6.0 for each column were plotted. It was found that at the optimum pH condition for gel-packed column, a small amount of ammonium sulfate was sufficient to achieve maximum cutinase recovery and purity since the effect of salt at that particular pH were less significant. Consequently, the number of released water molecules were calculated and it was observed that for membrane column, larger number of water was released at pH 6.0 illustrating more protein were bounded to the stationary phase, thus explaining the optimum pH condition of the particular column.
