Speech Title: Time-Space Fractional Governing Equations of Unsteady Open Channel Flow

Prof. Chih-Huang Weng

Professor, Department of Civil Engineering, I-Shou University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan

Professor, Chih-Huang Weng received his Ph.D. degree and Master degree in Environmental Engineering from The University of Delaware, USA. Currently, he is a faculty member in the Department of Civil and Ecological Engineering at I-Shou University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. He has published about 75 technical papers in SCI journal and 26 of them H-index. He is also serving as an editorial board member and guest editor of several academic journals. His research interests focus on using advanced oxidation processes, adsorption, and electrokinetic technologies for wastewater treatment and groundwater remediation.
Speech Title: Decolorization of Textile Dyes Using Persulfate Activated with Fe2+-Containing Minerals
Abstract: Effluents from dyeing and textile industries are usually heavily colored with dyeing agents. Synthetic azo dyes are the largest category of industrial colorants, which are mostly non-biodegradable and persistent due to their synthetic origin and complex molecular structure. With broad environmental concerns, it is imperative that they have to be removed from industrial effluents. Conventional biological processes are usually inadequate for the treatment of these chemicals under the increasingly stringent effluent standards. More...
