Abstract null null Anaerobic digestion is achieved through cooperation among various types of microorganisms, and the regulation of microbial communities is key to achieving stable system operation. In this study, the r/K selection theory was adopted to examine the system performance and microbial characteristics in anaerobic reactors with different operating modes (continuous-flow reactors, CFRs; sequencing batch reactors, SBRs) and sludge retention times (25 and 10 days). Four lab-scale reacto...

Abstract null null The livelihood of inhabitants from rural agricultural valleys in the arid Arica and Parinacota Region, northernmost Chile, strongly depends on water from high altitude rainfall and runoff to lower elevation areas. However, elevated arsenic, boron, and other potentially harmful elements compromise water quality, especially in rural areas. Samples (n = 90) of surface, underground, cold, geothermal springs, and treated and raw tap water were studied to assess water quality and to...

Abstract null null Oxygen-based membrane biofilm reactor (O2-MBfR) is a unique technique for high linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS)-containing greywater (GW) treatment. Despite the efficient removal of LAS, the dynamics of how it is taken up and the quantitative differentiation of adsorption and biodegradation are largely undefined. In this study, we tracked the fate of LAS, chemical oxygen demand and nitrogen in various systems: GW, GW with inactivated sludge (InAS) and GW with activated slud...

Abstract null null Polonium-210 (210Po) is a radionuclide sentinel as it bioaccumulates in marine organisms, thereby being the main contributor to committed dietary doses in seafood consumers. Although seafood and marine mammals are an important part of the traditional Inuit diet, there is a general lack of information on the 210Po concentrations in the Greenlandic marine food chain leading to the human consumer. Here, we determine background 210Po concentrations in edible parts of different mar...

Abstract null null The danger posed by cadmium (Cd) pollution to rice production is continuously increasing. Co-utilizing milk vetch (Astragalus sinicus L.) and rice straw is a good practice for rice yield and soil fertility in south China. However, its effects on Cd availability in soil–rice systems remain unclear. A micro-plot trial of two typical paddy soils (alluvial sandy soil and reddish clayey soil) in south China was conducted to investigate the effects of milk vetch, rice straw, lime, a...

Abstract null null Exposure to airborne particles causes detrimental health effects, hence their assessment in indoor environments, where people spend most of the time, is important. The influence of energy renovation and occupants' activities on airborne particle concentrations was assessed in seven occupied Swedish residences. Ultrafine particle (UFP, null null The average indoor UFP number concentrations increased from 6200 (±4070) cm-3 before renovation to 12,700 (±6040) cm-3 during the foll...

Flame retardants (FRs) are widely reported in tissues of seabirds including birds sampled from remote areas. There is evidence that FRs can disrupt the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid (HPT) axis in seabirds, although information is limited on thyroid-related mechanisms and effects. This study investigated the associations between concentrations of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and other FRs, and changes in the HPT axis in northern fulmars (Fulmarus glacialis) from the Faroe Islands (Nort...

Abstract null null Climate-induced changes in precipitation and land-use intensification affect the discharge of streams worldwide, which, together with eutrophication and loss of riparian canopy, can affect periphyton biomass and composition, and therefore, ultimately the stream functioning. We investigated the responses of periphyton biomass and life-forms (i.e., high profile, low profile and motile) to these changes applying an experimental approach by modulating nutrients (nutrient diffusion...

Abstract null null Treated wastewater (TWW) is increasingly used for agricultural irrigation, and often contains higher concentrations of the major plant nutrients N, P, and K than freshwater, reducing the need for agricultural fertilization. However, excessive inputs of nutrients to cropping systems can be harmful to crops and the environment. The present study developed and employed six novel indices to assess the sustainability of TWW-irrigation and spatio-temporal trends in NPK loads to TWW-...

Contaminated marine sediments represent a critical threat towards human health and ecosystems, since they constitute a potential reservoir of toxic compounds release. In the present study, a bioslurry reactor was studied for the treatment of real marine sediments contaminated by petroleum hydrocarbons. The experimental campaign was divided in two periods: in the first period, microcosm trials were carried out to achieve useful indicators for biological hydrocarbon removal from sediments. The mic...
