Triclosan is an antibacterial and antifungal agent that is present in many detergents and surgical cleaning treatment products. This antimicrobial compound is discharged from households and collected at the local sewage treatment plant. Because triclosan inhibits phospholipid biosynthesis, it affects the microbial population that perform waste degradation. Sewage treatment plants are the major

Sustainable wastewater treatment necessitates the application of natural and green material in the approach. Thus, selecting a natural coagulant in wastewater treatment is a crucial step to prevent secondary environmental pollution due to residual inorganic coagulant in treated effluent. Present study investigated the application of Musa paradisiaca (banana) peels in domestic wastewate

Enzyme-based sensors frequently produce unsatisfactory results such as poor reproducibility and insufficient long-term stability due to the natural instability of enzymes, stringent experimental conditions, and complicated immobilization procedures. Thus, an electrochemical non enzymatic sensor was fabricated by deposition of the multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) with zinc oxide nanoparticle

Government plays the most important role in improving the waste management system. Incineration system can be introduced into the waste management system to incinerate specific type of waste. This will increase the availability space for the landfilling process. However, the incineration process must be carried out with full pollution control system to prevent and minimize the pollution that mi

There have been many literature reviews on the presence of MPs in water, but study on the presence of MPs in the air and literature reviews on it have not been done much. study on MPs pollution needs to be collected and summarized into one literature review so that this information is easy to find and not scattered. The results found 16 research articles discussed the findings of MPs in ambient
