The Fastest Growing Business Of Agriculture    By: Agri Expo
Agriculture is consistently evolving. It consists of any sort of farming. You have got to possess agriculture to have groceries and clothing. Most people don't notice simply how important agriculture is to their everyday life. Every time you go in the grocery store to buy meat or any reasonably fruit or vegetables, you're shopping for an agriculture product.(read entire article)(posted on: 2018-08-22)

Drainage Analysis Of Mountainous Watersheds In Ras Al Khaimah Emirate, Uae    By: Suba karan
Many Wadis in the Arab Emirates (UAE) are active during rainy periods. Geomorphologically, the UAE is composed of mountains, gravel plains, sand dunes, and coastal zones. The runoff generation in these Wadis represents a complex phenomenon because of the topography of drainage basin. Morphological parameters were estimated and analyzed for the surface runoff generation and flooding possibility of twelve catchments in Ras Al Khaimah area of UAE. Hydrologic Engineering Center-Hydrologic Modeling System model is used to estimate the water yield in Wadi Al Bih due to rainfall events. Simulated results were compared with the observed water storage data of several historical storm events for the calibration of the model. The obtained results were compared with the observed yield and are found accurate and within an average of error 10%. Rainfall-runoff/yield curves were developed based on the duration and intensity of rainfall distribution. These curves can be used for prediction of surface water runoff and water storage in dams due to different rainfall events.(read entire article)(posted on: 2018-08-21)

Environmental Influences On Pollutants Removal In Modular Bioretention Swale    By: Sin Zhi GOH, Say Leong ONG, Jiangyong HU, Cui Xian
Abstract – The change in land use due to industrialization and urbanization has resulted in an increase in percentage perviousness in urban landscape. Nutrients and suspended solids accumulated on surfaces of urban cities are often washed into stormwater runoff receiving waterbodies causing eutrophic and unattractive waterbodies. As such, there is a pressing need to mitigate the impact of urbanization and industrialization by shifting towards the use of bioretention systems as a sustainable urban stormwater management system. Despite the large numbers of studies conducted to understand the influences and optimize the performance of bioretention systems; many of these studies were conducted on laboratory or pilot scale, which may not be applicable in field-based studies. Furthermore, many of the researches were done in Australia where there is seasonal changes thus may not be applicable to a tropical country like Singapore. In this study, a modular bioretention swale was constructed and monitored for its performance to improve the quality of urban stormwater runoff. Effluent quality from the bioretention system was observed to meet stormwater treatment guideline set by local government agency, with average removal efficiency of 50.7, 52.6 and 83.8% for total nitrogen, total phosphorus and total suspended solids respectively. It was observed that removal efficiencies of pollutants were affected by influent concentrations and their dissolved (soluble) percentages. Environmental influences such as soil moisture and air temperature also played a part in the performance of the bioretention system. However, due to different nature and removal pathway of the pollutants, the extent in which performance was impacted varied among the pollutants monitored in the project.(read entire article)(posted on: 2018-08-21)

Logistics Costs Consideration In The Economic Assessment Of Waste Frying Oil Based Biodiesel    By: Elyssa G. Fawaz, Darine A. Salam
Abstract— Aside from reducing the environmental problem of food service businesses uncontrolled disposal of waste oil, Waste Frying Oils (WFOs) based biodiesel also cuts the economy's dependence on limited resources and petroleum-based diesel imports. In this study, a method for evaluating the costs of biodiesel production from WFOs was proposed with the aim of developing an economic evaluation of this alternative. A logistics aspect is seldom explored in the calculation of such feasibilities. This study addresses this cost by determining optimal vehicle routing systems to incorporate in the total biodiesel cost. The capital of Lebanon, Beirut, was selected as the survey zone as it holds a great number of restaurants and hotels. The only biodiesel production plant in Lebanon was surveyed to determine the production, chemicals, labor and tax costs in addition to glycerin and fatty acids' esters (FAEs) credits. Ultimately, a comparison between eightyone scenarios of the biodiesel costs and the information on the commercialization of diesel in Lebanon was realized. The results confirm the economic feasibility of WFOs' biodiesel production in the studied area, and can help sustain a healthy development of the biodiesel industry in Lebanon.(read entire article)(posted on: 2018-08-21)
