Abstract: Zinc sulfide (ZnS) is a well-known semiconductor with the wide band gap ~3.6 eV. Since the ZnS exhibits excellent transmission properties, high electron mobility, non-toxicity, water insolubility, and it is relatively inexpensive, it has been considered as an important photocatalyst for water and wastewater treatment.

Abstract: In the research of the alternative vibration sensing systems, the major potential is attributed to piezoelectric materials that can generate the electrical output from the waste vibration sources of the industrial machines. Poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF), mostly in the electroactive β-phase, is a great option due to its excellent piezoelectric properties and good flexibility. [..] Read more

Abstract: Protein edestin extraction from hemp seed press cakes obtained after a cold press oil extraction process has been optimized at laboratory scale and verified in a pilot plant experiment. Subsequent water and brine extraction of the disintegrated hemp seed press cake was used to obtain the water-soluble albumin protein fraction and the brine-soluble globulin fraction - edestin.

Abstract: Chars and carbon membranes were prepared from fresh and smoked cigarette filters, and used as adsorbents for clofibric acid removal. Carbonization of cigarette filters took place at 650, 750 and 900 °C, whereas membranes were synthesized by filter dissolution in acetone, using NaCl (porogen) and glycerol (plasticizer).

Abstract: Principles, design and pilot use of a new probe for zero-valent iron nanoparticles (nZVI) concentration measurement in a micro-borehole are described in the paper. Effect of nZVI on coil inductance is known and used for such measurement before; the presented improvements relate to smaller dimensions, configuration, and electric circuit data accuracy, so that the probe can detect nZVI in small volume of suspension in a narrow fracture.
