PHOTOGRAPH OF THE WEEK

Hill slope of left bank of TLD-IV Power Station near Dam site is successfully restored through engineering and biological measures conducive to the terrain. Engineering measures such as retaining walls were constructed at the base of the slope and different biological measures were adopted keeping in view the local eco-climatic conditions. Biological protection measures such as bamboo palisade (Belly Benching) have been provided over the slope to avoid further erosion at this location and also to support biological rejuvenation.

पर्यावरण वार्ता (अंक 7 )

इस वर्ष स्वतंत्रता दिवस के पावन प्रभात में हमारे माननीय प्रधानमंत्री श्री नरेंद्र मोदी ने लाल किले की प्राचीर से पर्यावरण संरक्षण का संदेश भी दिया। उन्होने समस्त भारतवासियों से अपेक्षा की है कि देश को पोलीथीन मुक्त करने के लिए उसी तरह का अभियान चलाया जाये जैसा स्वच्छता अभियान संचालित हो रहा है। प्रधानमंत्री ने स्पष्टत: कहा कि एक बार इस्तेमाल होने वाले पोलीथीन का पूरी तरह त्याग कर दिया जाना चाहिए। इसके विकल्प के रूप में कपड़े अथवा जूट के थैलों के प्रयोग को प्रोत्साहित किया जाना चाहिये। आगामी दो अक्टूबर अर्थात राष्ट्रपिता महात्मा गाँधी की जयंती के अवसर पर प्लास्टिक कचरे के एकत्रीकरण एवं उसके सुचारू रूप से निष्पादन करने पर अनेक राष्ट्रीय कार्यक्रमों का आगाज किया जाना है। हम सभी को सुनिश्चित करना चाहिये कि प्लास्टिक कचरे को कम करने में हमारी क्या भूमिका हो सकती है। कहते हैं बूंद बूंद से घड़ा भरता है अर्थात प्रत्येक नागरिक द्वारा स्वयं के स्तर पर किया गया प्रयास स्वच्छता क्रांति में परिवर्तित हो सकता है।   वर्ल्ड इकोनॉमिक फ़ोरम की एक रिपोर्ट के अनुसार प्रत्येक वर्ष लगभग अस्सी लाख टन प्लास्टिक कचरा हमारे महासागरों में समाहित हो जाता है। महासागर तक पहुँचने वाले प्लास्टिक कचरे का नब्बे प्रतिशत ...

Investigations on the Use of Dolochar for Removal of Surfactant from Aqueous Solution: Statistical and Kinetic Modeling

आवरण चित्र साभार : www.google.com   Potable water is receding at a faster pace and to find an alternative to freshwater resources it becomes imperative to adopt sustainable solutions like recycling of wastewater. Urbanization, economic development, changing consumption patterns and population growth have led to increase in water demand. Disturbingly high rates of consumption of surfactants in household and industries have led to mark them as emerging contaminants in the environment. Surfactants are widely used in detergents, fabric softeners, soaps, personal care products like shampoos, cosmetics etc. and in several industrial processes like agriculture, paints, textiles, pharmaceuticals and pesticide formulations. Instances of polluted lakes spewing froth and creating uncomfortable conditions in nearby areas have become common. As an example, Bellandur lake in Bengaluru, India was recently in news for discharging heavy volumes of froth on adjacent roads and residential areas. It was speculated that indiscriminate usage of large amounts of detergents by households could be one of the reasons for waves of foam formation.   In the present work, removal of sodium dodecyl sufate (SDS), an anionic surfactant using an industrial waste named dolochar was explored. SDS molecule contains a hydrophobic tail (long chain of carbon which is water hating) ...
