Microbiological investigations into granular sludge from two anaerobic digesters differing in design and industrial effluent purified.
Due to a combination of selection criteria, sludges from upflow anaerobic digesters treating industrial waste waters consist primarily of well-settling, dense agglomerates called granules. Quantification of the component ...
Bioremediation of oil-contaminated soil : a South African case study.
In 1990, an oil recycling plant situated in Hammarsdale, South Africa, was decommissioned and a decision was taken by management to rehabilitate the site in preparation for resale. The heavily impacted area covered over ...
Development of a code of practice for co-disposal to obviate inimical environmental impacts of generated gases and leachates.
Despite its phasing out in numerous countries, such as Germany and the U.S.A., co-disposal of hazardous waste with municipal solid waste continues to be widely practised in South Africa. Co-disposal utilises properties ...

Bioremediation of heavy metal polluted waters.
Microorganisms have the potential to remove heavy metals from polluted waters and effluents and may be used in clean-up processes. Microbial associations were enriched for and adapted to grow in nutrient solutions ...
The influence of soil particle surfaces and soil porosity on the biodegradation of key refuse leachate organic molecules.
Many studies have been undertaken to determine the effects of soil and soil properties on migrating metal pollutants. Organic pollutants, however, in addition to their interactions with soil components , are also susceptible ...
