Photocatalytic (UV-A/TiO2) degradation of 17α-ethynylestradiol in environmental matrices: Experimental studies and artificial neural network modeling
The efficiency of heterogeneous photocatalysis to degrade 17α-ethynylestradiol (EE2), a synthetic estrogen hormone, in environmentally relevant samples was investigated. In most cases, UV-A radiation at a photon flux of ...
Dental solid and hazardous waste management and safety practices in developing countries: Nablus district, Palestine
This study investigated the dental waste management practices and safety measures implemented by dentists in the Nablus district, Palestine. A comprehensive survey was conducted for 97 of the 134 dental clinics to assess ...
Solid waste characterization, quantification and management practices in developing countries. A case study: Nablus district - Palestine [electronic resource]
Solid waste management (SWM) is one of the most challenging issues faced by developing countries that suffer from serious pollution problems caused by the generation of large waste quantities. This paper presents the case ...
Drugs degrading photocatalytically: Kinetics and mechanisms of ofloxacin and atenolol removal on titania suspensions
The conversion of the antibiotic ofloxacin and the ß-blocker atenolol by means of TiO2 photocatalysis was investigated. Irradiation was provided by a UVA lamp at 3.37×10-6einstein/s photon flux, while emphasis was given ...
A study on the attitudes and behavioural influence of construction waste management in occupied Palestinian territory
As a step towards comprehending what drives the management of construction waste in the occupied Palestinian territory, this paper quantifies construction waste generation and examines how the local contractors' waste ...
Utilizing solar energy for the purification of olive mill wastewater using a pilot-scale photocatalytic reactor after coagulation-flocculation
This study investigated the application of a solar-driven advanced oxidation process (solar Fenton) combined with previous coagulation/flocculation, for the treatment of olive mill wastewater (OMW) at a pilot scale. ...
