  1. 1. Chitosan biopolymer as an adsorbent for drinking water treatment Investigation on Arsenic and Uranium

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Md Annaduzzaman; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Chitosan Biopolymer; Characterization; Biodegradable; Arsenic V ; Uranium VI ; Adsorption; Isotherm; Kinetic model  ; Chitosan; Biopolymer; Karakterisering; Bionedbrytbar; arsenik V ; uran VI ; Adsorption; Isoterm; Kinetisk modell; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : In many countries over the world (including Sweden), metal toxicity in freshwater resources causes a severe drinking water quality problem and poses a threat to the environment and human health. Among the different toxic metals in the water resources of Sweden, arsenic and uranium are the biggest threats to health. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of a Risk-Based Decision Model for Prioritizing Microbial Risk Mitigation Measures in Drinking Water Systems

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Viktor Bergion; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; quantitative microbial risk assessment; microbial risks; pathogens; water quality modelling; drinking water system; cost-benefit analysis; decision support; drinking water; microbial risk;

    Abstract : Risk management of drinking water systems is crucial since our society relies on these systems to be robust and sustainable to supply safe drinking water now and to future generations. Pathogens may spread in drinking water systems and cause waterborne outbreaks resulting in human suffering and large costs to the society. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sustainable and Safe Use of Non-conventional Waters -Reclaimed Water and Desalinated Water

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Shuang Liu; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Water reuse; Desalination; Strategy; Water security; Guidelines; Policy; Microbial risk assessment;

    Abstract : Fresh water scarcity, pollution and an uneven distribution have caused an increasingly serious global water crisis. One of the most widely adopted response strategies is the exploitation and use of non-conventional water sources. READ MORE

  4. 4. Water in roads: Flow paths and pollutant spread

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Hedi Rasul; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; De-icing salt; Road; Tracer test; ERT; Water content; Road pollutants; Flow pathways; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : For better road construction and maintenance while minimising damage to the environment and groundwater, it is essential to monitor and model hydrological impacts on roads and consider pollution of groundwater. Water content in unbound material in road layers changes continuously and water flow usually occurs along pathways that are the main corridors for pollutant spread to groundwater. READ MORE

  5. 5. Groundwater resources in hard rock coastal terrains Insights into heterogeneity and spatial variability

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Robert Earon; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Crystalline Rock; Groundwater Balance; Kinematic porosity; Groundwater Recharge; Water Security; Coastal Aquifer; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : Challenges regarding water security in hard rock coastal regions with limited soil cover are: a seasonal absence of recharge during times of peak residency, heterogeneity and variability of the fracture network, close proximity to saline water sources and spatially inconsistent storage and extraction. In areas where it is not feasible to connect residents to municipal water systems, a better understanding of the resilience of reservoirs is needed. READ MORE
