Groundwater and Drinking Water Laboratory was established in 1995. The lab is located at 6 floor of Civil&Environmental Engineering building, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan. The research fields of this lab are Site Remediation、Identification and Treatment of Algal Metabolites Adsorption Technology.
(Groundwater and Drinking Water Laboratory)
- Remediation Technology for Contaminated Sites.
- Regeneration of activated carbon and oxidation of MTBE by ozonation. Adsorbent based permeable reactive barrier and ozonation are two common methods used in in-situ remediation for organic contaminants. This study is aimed to understand the feasibility of combining the two methods in treating methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE).
- Analysis and Control of Algal Metabolites in Drinking Water Systems.
- Effect of oxidants in the cell integrity and metabolite release of three nauseous cyanobacteria. These cyanobacteria include Microcystis aeruginosa, Anabaena circinalis, and Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii.
- Development of Adsorbents.
- Adsorption of Arsenic (V) by iron-oxide-coated diatomite (IOCD). Economically efficient methods for removing arsenic from the drinking water supply are urgently needed in many parts of the world. Iron oxides are known to have a strong affinity for arsenic in water. However, they are commonly present in the forms of fine powder or floc, which limits their utility in water treatment. In this research, a novel granular adsorbent, iron-oxide-coated diatomite (IOCD), was developed and examined for its adsorption of arsenic from water.
