Membranes with high water permeance, near-zero rejection to inorganic salts (such as NaCl and Na2SO4), and almost 100% rejection to organic dyes are of great interest for the dye desalination (the separation of dyes and salts) of textile wastewater. Herein, we prepared reduced graphene oxide membranes in a solvation state (S-rGO) with nanochannel sizes rightly between the salt ions and dye molecules. The S-rGO membrane rejects >99.0% of Direct Red 80 (DR 80) and has almost zero rejection for Na2SO4. By contrast, conventional GO or rGO membranes often have the channel sizes smaller than divalent ions (such as SO42-) and thus high rejection for Na2SO4...

Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are widely used as flame retardants in a variety of products, including textiles. PBDEs are thus exposed to the natural environment, including wastewater, waterbodies and sediments (at different phases of products' lifecycles), where they will interact with other pollutants. Studies on the interactions between organic pollutants and engineered nanoparticles (NPs) in natural waters are rare. In this study, we investigated the effects of two common PBDEs-BDE 47 and BDE 209-on the physicochemical properties and colloidal stability of TiO2 NP in simple aqueous media and two natural waters (river water and wastewater)...

To address the environmental hazard posed by the discharge of textile industry wastewater, we combined n-type (CdSe) and n-type (Ag3 PO4 ) visible-light-responsive semiconductors to produce a photochemically stable n-n type heterostructured nanohybrid comprising metallic Ag (CdSe/Ag/Ag3 PO4 , CAA) and employed this material as a catalyst for the decomposition of phenol and rhodamine B (RhB). The physicochemical properties of CAA and reference photocatalysts were investigated using instrumental techniques. Compared to individual Ag3 PO4 and CdSe, CAA showed an elevated photocatalytic decomposition efficiency for both target pollutants, which was mainly attributed to increased charge separation efficiency and explained by the operation of the Z-scheme reaction mechanism...

This work reported that novel highly oriented and vertically aligned stoichiometric copper- and zinc-based ferrites, i.e., Cu0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 quantum dots (QDs) anchored with TiO2 nanotube array electrode (NAE) composites, with n-n nano-heterojunctions and highly effective simulated solar light harvesting could be successfully achieved via electrochemical anodization followed by a vacuum-assisted impregnation strategy. It has been observed that Cu0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 QDs/TiO2 NAE composites exhibit distinctly enhanced visible light photoelectrocatalytic (PEC) performance toward the degradation of typical pollutants including sulfamethoxazole (SMX) and methylene blue (MB) as compared to that of pristine TiO2 NAEs, which can be attributed to the synergistic effect of heterostructures with strong interfacial interaction and abundant 1D nanotube array structures to facilitate efficient spatial charge separation and interfacial transfers...

In this study, a simple and novel kinetic spectrophotometric method has been proposed for the sensitive and highly selective determination of Brilliant Green. The method is based on the interaction of Brilliant Green with Triton X-100 in micellar media at room temperature. As a result of this interaction, the peak wavelength (625 nm) is gradually shifted toward longer wavelength region (634 nm) and more intensive hyper chromic effect has been seen. As well as, variations in the red, blue and green (RGB) components of the images as a function of time were observed...

Use of tight ultrafiltration (UF) membranes has created a new pathway in fractionation of dye/salt mixtures from textile wastewater for sustainable resource recovery. Unexpectedly, a consistently high rejection for the dyes with smaller sizes related to the pore sizes of tight UF membranes is yielded. The potential mechanism involved in this puzzle remains unclear. In this study, seven tailored UF membranes with molecular weight cut-offs (MWCOs) from 6050 to 17530 Da were applied to separate dye/salt mixtures...

Treatment wetlands (TWs) have shown good capacity in dye removal from textile wastewater. However, the high hydraulic retention times (HRTs) required by these solutions and the connected high area requirements, remain a big drawback towards the application of TWs for dye treatment at full scale. Aerated TWs are interesting intensified solutions that attempt to reduce the TW required area. Therefore, an aerated CW pilot plant, composed of a 20 m2 horizontal subsurface flow TW (HF) and a 21 m2 Free Water System (FWS), equipped with aeration pipelines, was built and monitored to investigate the potential reduction of required area for dye removal from the effluent wastewater of a centralized wastewater treatment plant (WWTP)...
