Abstract

Study was done for the use of the third-generation of downflow hanging sponge (G3-DHS) bioreactor for secondary treatment of septic tank desludging wastewater. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the prospective system of G3-DHS bioreactor to be applied in Indonesia. During experiment, the G3-DHS bioreactor kept a relatively high dissolved oxygen concentration under natural aeration. At a relatively short hydraulic retention (HRT) of 3 h, the G3-DHS bioreactor could remove up to 21% (SD = 15%) of total COD, 21% (SD = 7%) of filtered-COD, 58% (SD = 24%) of unfiltered-BOD, and 33% (SD = 24%) of ammonium removal. The final effluent had an unfiltered-BOD of only 46 mg/L (SD = 20 mg/L) that it was below the Indonesian standard (unfiltered-BOD = 100 mg/L) for thresholds of domestic wastewater treatment plants effluent.

Abstract

Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) as a solid waste in Crude Palm Oil (CPO) industry does not utilized yet as an alternative energy source to generate electricity. It is well known that use of solid wate (biomass) as an energy source is part of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) scheme due to direct reduction of Green House Gases (GHGs) emission and provide a direct contribution to sustainable development. Utilization of EFB as a source of energy is very potential to be implemented in Aceh since this province has 25 CPO Mills at the moment which actively produce about 870,000 ton EFB per year. This study is subjected to evaluate the potency of electricity  from EFB theoretically by using primary data (survey data) and secondary data. Potency of EFB and number of electricity produced from that EFB are estimated using primary data and direct combustion scenario, respectively. Calculation methods for emission reduction acieved are done by AMS-I.D: Renewable electricity generation to the grid and AMS-III.E: Methane emissions avoided from dumping at a solid waste disposal site. The result of this investigation shows that energy consumption in 25 CPO Mills is 45 GW(e)h per year. Evidently, the number of energy/electricity which is potential to be produced by using 75% EFB is 1,047 GWh per year; so that the GHGs emission reduction up to 171,232.21 tCO2e per year.

Abstract

Membrane technology has been implemented broadly for clean water treatment. To produce a better membrane, modification is carried out by adding chitosan into a polymer solution. Materials used in this research are polyethersulfone (PES) 18%, the n-methyl pyrrolidone solvent modified with a chitosan solution (at 0.2 ? 1 wt%) as an additive, and deionized water as a non-solvent. The membrane synthesis is carried out with the non-solvent induced phase separation method of blending the polymer. Membrane characterization includes functional group analysis, morphological structure, and water contact angle. Membrane performance is monitored at the filtration process, resulting in the permeability coefficient, and for the rejection of a contaminant (humic acid) with dead-end filtration. Research results show that the modified membrane characterization has an asymmetric morphological structure with a thinner top layer, and the membrane sublayer has a finger-like macrovoid structure with a larger size as compared to the original PES membrane (without the chitosan solution addition). The chitosan additive into the PES membrane improves the membrane?s hydrophilic property. The highest value of the permeability coefficient is achieved with a 1% chitosan addition, which provides a permeability coefficient value of 10.524 L/m2.h.bar and a rejection coefficient of 70.3%.

Abstract

This paper presents the results of dye wastewater treatment of a batik industry in a batch experiment. The experiment was carried out by adding a mixture of aluminium sulfate as coagulant and natural iron oxide-coated sand (NICS) into the wastewater. Sedimentation rate of the formed flock was enhanced by a magnet. Initial COD concentration of the dye wastewater of 1060 mg/L was used in the experiment. Results of this research showed that the efficiency of the dye removal and settling time were affected by iron sand entrapped in the formed flocks. The highest efficiency of COD removal was 95%, or similar to the final COD concentration of 45 mg/L at settling time of 10 minutes. It could be concluded that the combination of aluminium sulfate and NICS could effectively be used in the treatment of the dye wastewater from batik industry.

Abstract

Ammonia removal behavior in the DHS has been studied extensively including apply a DO microelectrodes and a gold method of microbial identification, i.e. Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) approach by means of 16S rRNA-targeted oligonucleotide probes. With the HRT of 2 h, the ammonia removal rate in the bioreactor was achieved 0,24 kgN.m-3.d-1, and nitrogen-losing rate was approximate 0,08 kgN.m-3.d-1.  Moreover, the most important of this system is no requirement external aeration input. FISH of the DHS sludge revealed that nitrifiers could be detected with Nso190, NSR1156, or NIT3 probe, form dense clusters, and they mainly settled in the surface region of the heterotrophic aggregates. Ammonia oxidizers and nitrite oxidizers grown in DHS sludge in separated solitary occurrence. Nitrospira spp. were more likely responsible to oxidize of nitrite rather than Nitrobacter spp.

Abstract

Zeolite Y nanocrystal was synthesized from a clear solution at temperature of 80-1500C with 6.38 of Si/Al molar ratio by using Aluminum isopropoxide (Al(OiPr)3)  and Ludox LS as alumina and silica source, Tetrametylammonium Hidroxide (TMAOH) and Tetrametylammonium Bromide (TMABr) as first and second organic template, respectively. The products were characterised by X-Ray Diffractometer (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to identify the structure and particle sizes. The image measurements of the particle size record that the average particle sizes of FAU-5, FAU-20 and FAU-35 are 116.46 nm, 169.33 nm and 178.12 nm, respectively. Furthermore, 0.5988 g and 0.6001 g of yields with average particle sizes of 116.46 nm and 43.76 nm can be obtained for FAU-5 (single organic template) and FAU-10 (two organic template, TMABr/TMAOH=0.15) samples, respectively. The smallest average particle size observed is 33.87 nm (FAU-15). The synthesised nanocrystalline zeolite Y was applied for Pb(II) and Cr(III) removal and the results show that the nano crystal samples have very good performance. On FAU-37 at 10 ppm, 30 ppm, 50 ppm and 80 ppm of initial concentration, the adsorption of Pb is 23.56 mg/g, 109.71 mg/g, 181.02 mg/g and 231.46 mg/g, respectively at 216 h and adsorption capacities of Cr are 23.18 mg/g, 84.94 mg/g, 109.75 mg/g and 147.37 mg/g.
