Neural network analysis was used to construct models of unconfined compressive strength (UCS) as a function of mix composition using existing data from literature studies of Portland cement containing real industrial wastes. The models were able to represent the known non-linear dependency of UCS...
The solidification/stabilization of sodium arsenite, sodium arsenate, arsenic trioxide and arsenic pentoxide at dosages of approximately 10% has been investigated using sequential batch leaching tests. The leaching of arsenic, which was found to be diffusion based, was clearly least effective for...
Copper ore tailings were tested for the stability of titanium submitted to water leaching in three different reactor systems (agitated vessel, bioreactor and percolated fixed-bed column). For each of these systems, titanium extraction did not exceed 1% of the available metal. Biomass removed from...
In this work we present the results of an experimental study on the abatement of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) in contaminated soil using a high energy milling technique, that promotes a reaction only by impact between milling bodies. A sample of soil from a controlled landfill was treated with...
