Water management with wastewater treatment and reuse, desalination, and conveyance to counteract future water shortages in the Gaza Strip

Groundwater is the only freshwater source available for the Gaza Strip of Palestine, but Gaza groundwater is heavily polluted from agricultural activities and seawater intrusion. Water resource planners therefore have to find innovative alternate sources of water to minimize existing and future deficits. Possible management options include the use of treated wastewater (TWW), desalination, and conveyance of water...

Selection of optimum option for sludge disposal in the Guilan province of Iran using rapid impact assessment matrix (RIAM)

All wastewater treatment processes produce a large amount of semisolid pollutants, especially wastewater sludge. Discharge of sludge without environmental considerations will have many serious effects on public health and environment. The main objective of this study is the selection of optimum option for sludge disposal in the Guilan province of Iran using rapid impact assessment matrix (RIAM) which is a tool to...

Minimising the deterioration of the properties of Moringa oleifera seed extract using Trona solution

This study intends to investigate the feasibility of using a local preservative under ambient environmental conditions to minimise the deterioration of Moringa oleifera seed extract in terms of pH fluctuations and coagulation properties. The effect of Trona solution on the pH stability of M. oleifera seed extract was evaluated by observing varying concentrations (0.5 to 2%) of mixtures of seed extract and Trona solution...
