Using Algae to Clean Wastewater, Make Fuel | Autopia A wastewater treatment plant might seem like the last place to find a fuel for the future, but a team of researchers has done just that. Researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology are using algae grown in wastewater to produce biodiesel. They say the process is “doubly green” because the algae consume pathogens in the water even as they can be used to produce biofuel. The process holds some appeal over conventional feedstocks like corn because algae is easy to grow, doesn’t require vast tracts of land to raise and uses photosynthesis to convert sunlight into energy. “Algae—as a renewable feedstock—grow a lot quicker than crops of corn or soybeans,” researcher Eric Lannan said in a statement. Lannan and chemistry major Emily Young worked with Jeff Lodge, associate professor of biological sciences, to isolate and extract lipids from algae and produce biodiesel. Photo: Sue Weisler / Rit.

dangerouslaboratories.org What is biodiesel? Simply put, it is diesel fuel that is made from vegetable oil. It will run in any unmodified diesel engine. You will need the following things to make your first batch: 1) At least 1 Litre (1.1 Quart) vegetable oil. 2) A variable speed blender with a slow speed option. 3) A scale that will accurately measure 3.5 grams (.12 oz). 4) 1 bottle Red Devil Lye Drain Cleaner (Sodium Hydroxide) available from you local hardware store. 5) At least 200 milliliters (6.8 fl. oz) of methanol (Methyl Alcohol or "Wood" Alcohol). 6) A glass container that is marked for 200 milliliters (6.8 fl. oz). 7) A glass or plastic container that is marked for 1 liter (1.1 Quart) 8) A wide mouth glass or plastic container that will hold at least 1.5 litres 9) A common spoon (preferably plastic or stainless steel). 10) Safety Glasses and Rubber Gloves! It is always wise to use a "diesel fuel filter/water separator" with any diesel engine.

Aristegui Noticias La Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT) tiene tres proyectos preliminares para ocupar los terrenos del Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México (AICM), una vez que entre en operaciones la nueva terminal en el año 2020: un centro urbano para 155 mil personas, un gran parque metropolitano y una ciudad para la investigación científica. Aristegui Noticias obtuvo vía transparencia dos secciones del “Estudio para determinar el uso futuro del AICM y sus beneficios sociales”, elaborado por la consultora española IDOM tras firmar un contrato de 39 millones 600 mil pesos. Durante el acceso a la información, el Grupo Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de México (GACM) aclaró que los proyectos forman parte de un proceso deliberativo que aún no concluye, por lo que no hay un diseño ganador o definitivo. Este proyecto prevé que las oficinas y comercios operen de forma ininterrumpida, pues así lo exigirá la población que viva en esa zona. La propuesta incluye construir: a 6 mil 281 personas.

Ecocidio en el Lago Nabor Carrillo Consultando la semana pasada algunos datos e informaciones sobre la supuesta “donación” ilegal de 200 hectáreas (ha.) del área de los Tlateles, dentro de la Zona Federal del Lago de Texcoco (ZFLT), descubrimos otras acciones negativas de muy alto impacto ambiental promovidas por el Grupo Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de México (GACM). Se confirma que el plan de regulación hidráulica que se dio a conocer en 2014 durante el acto de presentación del proyecto del Nuevo Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México (NAICM) y que encabezó el presidente Enrique Peña Nieto, nunca se elaboró. Ahora, sin ninguna información ni estudios de impacto ambiental, se pretende cambiar a otro proyecto completamente distinto. La capacidad calculada de este sistema regulador es de 40 millones de metros cúbicos (m3) para mitigar el riesgo de inundaciones en los municipios de Netzahualcóyotl, Ecatepec y Chimalhuacán. Nabor Carrillo Flores fue un mexicano ejemplar. ¡Este ecocidio debe detenerse!

History | Orlando Wetlands Park Area History Settlers began moving to the Christmas area after the conclusion of the many Seminole Wars in the late 1830s. The Army under the command of Brig. Wetlands Operation The Iron Bridge Regional WRF was constructed in 1979 by the City of Orlando with a mandate from the U.S.E.P.A. to consolidate several wastewater treatment facilities and to expand the available sewer capacity in the area. The system was designed with a hydraulic capacity of 35 million gallons a day of reclaimed wastewater. The reclaimed water begins its 40-day journey through the Wetlands Park at the influent distribution structure, which is located near the western most edge of the property, just north of Wheeler Road, and in close proximity to the Influent Observation Deck. The function of the influent structure is to distribute the reclaimed water among the three flow paths through the wetland system. Wildlife & Birds Park Hours The Orlando Wetlands Park is open throughout the year from sunrise to sunset.

Constructed wetlands Constructed wetlands (CW), or artificial wetlands, are engineered wetland ecosystems that have been designed and constructed to use natural wetland processes for the removal of pollutants. These systems mimic marshes with aquatic plants, soil, and associated microorganisms but take advantage of a controlled environment to treat wastewater. Wetlands have shown the ability to meet this goal in an aesthetic, sustainable, and economical manner.  However, they require large areas of land, consistent maintenance, and technical operational knowledge.  History Natural wetlands have been used as wastewater discharge sites since the beginning of sewage collection. Design Constructed wetland treatment systems generally fall into two categories: subsurface ﬂow systems and free water surface ﬂow system. Design Considerations The most important considerations on the design of a constructed wetland include hydrology, basin morphology, chemical loadings, soils, and vegetation.
