    Abstract: Pyrolysis being an efficient process through which biomass materials are converted to biochar and pyroligneous acid can be easily achieved by using an efficient pyrolysis system. These pyrolysis products can be used as source of energy for cooking, soil amendment or as biopesticide/biofertilizer. The aim of this study was to design, develop and tes... Show More

    Abstract: Waste Stabilization Ponds (WSP) provide both cost-effective and high-performance wastewater treatment benefits in the tropical regions. The 3-month sludge settling behavior in the Kibendera WSP in Ruiru, Kenya, was studied between July and September 2022. The study aimed at determining the sludge volume index (SVI) and hindered settling velocity du... Show More
