Phytoremediation is an ecofriendly that has shown promising results for the contaminants like heavy metals. Because of its advantages as a cost-effective, efficient, environment- and eco-friendly technology based on the use of metal-accumulating plants. This paper aims to compile some information about heavy metals of arsenic, cadmium, lead, copper and zinc (As, Cd, Pb, Cu and Zn) sources, effects and their treatment. It also reviews deeply about phytoremediation technology, including the heavy metal uptake mechanisms and several research studies associated about heavy metals (As, Cd, Pb, Cu and Zn) and aquatic plants are used to process these heavy metals.
Diatomite from Tuy An district, Phu Yen province, with different purities and diatom integrity as catalyst carriers, were adopted to prepare TNTs/g-C3N4 composite catalysts by a sol-gel method, with an optimal weight ratio of 1:1 for TNTs/g-C3N4 and diatomite. Compared with pure TNTs, g-C3N4, and TNTs/g-C3N4, the obtained composite photocatalysts exhibited lower photocatalytic performance under the same conditions and NO removal within 30 min under visible light. The NO gas treatment efficiency under the same conditions with different catalyst supports only decreases by approximately 18% at a reaction rate of 0.0950 min-1. This research on composite photocatalysts is a promising step towards practical environmental remediation. The use of diatomite as a carrier for photocatalytic materials is particularly noteworthy, as it is a naturally available and cost-effective source of materials. However, further improvements in the photocatalytic performance of the composite material are necessary to fully realize its potential in environmental remediation, including removing NOx and other pollutants. Overall, this study provides valuable insights into the influence of carriers on the photocatalytic activity of composite photocatalysts and lays the foundation for future research in this field.

In this topic, we applied the Fmincon function to the optimum question when choosing the structure of a 7-bar bearing steel bearing, divided into groups of the same size, including group 1 (1, 2 bars), group 2 (3, 4, and 5 bars), and group 3 (6, and 7 bars) with three fixed head points and two bearing points. Using the Matlab software code, we have identified the structures of each group of steel bars corresponding to the radius of 1.564 cm, 3.509 cm, and 4.724 cm, respectively. Through this, we can identify the 1, 2, and 3 bars that are resistant to traction; the 3, 5, 6, and 7 bars that are subject to compression; and the 4 bars alone that are not subject to the action of the force. The results show that using the optimal method, we choose the different sizes, thicknesses, and volumes of the pipe so that it best suits the technical requirements of the paper, to avoid waste of raw materials, affecting the economic cost.
Dai Dao Tam Ky Pho Do [The Great Way of The Third Amnesty Era] (shortly Caodaism) is an indigenous religion established in southern Vietnam in the early 20th century. Being one of the new religions in the region, Caodaism has been constantly developing and attracting quite a great number of followers of over three million. The doctrine of Caodaism is a synthesis of the Three Religions, e.g. Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism together with elements from some other religions. The doctrine is not only shown in scriptures, religious structure, but also expressed through symbols in architecture, rituals and costumes. To a certain extent, it is thus essential to understand the symbolism of the Holy Temple – the most important one of the symbolism system so that we can fully comprehend Caodaism. The Temple is the most solemn and sacred place in Cao Dai Tay Ninh Holy See. It carries both philosophical and esoteric meanings as an emblem of cultural syncretism. The study of the Holy Temple symbol will elaborate further Caodaist doctrines in a relationship with the cultural context of the Southern region.
Declining supplies of fossil fuels, increasing population, global industrialization and demand for transportation fuels has triggered an increase in the demand for renewable energy sources. To address such problems most of the green research in the recent years has focused on the development of bioethanol (23 MJ/L) as a substitute to conventional gasoline (34.3 MJ/L) based fuels owing to the similarity in energy density values in addition to several other advantages (American Council on renewable energy, 2010). Second-generation biofuels are derived from lignocellulosic biomass or woody crops, mostly coming from agricultural residues. Extraction of fuel from such biomass is difficult because of their recalcitrant nature (corn stover, rice straw, wheat straw, sugar cane and sweet sorghum). Lignocellulosic fuel has the potential to solve several problems (food competing with fuel) that are currently associated with first generation biofuels. Moreover, lignocellulosic fuels can supply a larger proportion of the global fuel leading to sustainability at lower cost, and with greater environmental benefits (Liz Marsall, 2009). The production of ethanol from the complex sugars in leaves and stalks is a promising strategy to radically broaden the range of possible ethanol feedstock. Keywords: lignocellulose, bioethanol, biomass, pretreatment, hydrolysis, fermentation.
The current status assessment research of water use and quality of supplied domestic water in Thu Dau Mot city, Binh Duong province, as well as the clean water use situation of the local people. Sampling and assessment of the quality of supplied water at Thu Dau Mot Water supply enterprise. The water treatment process here is strictly conducted to ensure stability, constant pressure, inlet and outlet water flow. The analysis results of physical and chemical parameters of water quality at Thu Dau Mot Water supply enterprise show parameters within the allowable limits of water standards for domestic use QCVN 02: 2009/BYT and domestic water QCVN 01: 2009/BYT. However, during the water treatment process in the rainy season, it is time consuming and costly for the use of many chemicals in the treatment process, as high turbidity and high color temperature, low TDS, low pH, low chloride, high SS, Fe and Mn content changes in the wet season higher than in the dry season. After sampling for analysis and treatment, the output water meets the clean water standard to meet the needs of the people in Thu Dau Mot City and surrounding areas. Keywords: water quality, physical and chemical parameters, water standards, clean water.
Corrosion of the bottom of the petroleum tank may lead to a product leak that could cause a fire or explosion resulting in damage to people and the environment, therefore the test of tank bottom corrosion is necessary to be conducted periodically to prevent the occurrence of the above problems. In non-destructive inspection, the Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) method relies on the variation of fluxes caused by defects on the surface of materials to detect corrosion, pitting, or imperfections, which is proved quite effectively with low cost. The project was implemented to develop a prototype of the MFL bottom detection device based on the research results in the world to improve corrosion survey capacity in industrial equipment, as well as to improve the expertise in the Research Team of electronics and automation in the fields of magnetic fields and sensors. As a result, an MFL model using permanent magnets and Hall sensors were fabricated. Survey experiments showed that the machine could detect corrosion defects up to 20% of steel wall thickness in the scanning speed range from 500 mm/s to 1130 mm/s. However, to meet the actual survey needs, the team must continue to improve the device in terms of sensitivity, scanning speed, the ability to operate automatically or semi-automatically, and register for a fire safety inspection.
The paper presents general theory about making small models for studying large machines. Here, the author refers to the design of pile driving and pressing machines. To express ideas, the author presents design drawings presented in three-dimensional perspective. Currently, pile drivers and pile presses are two separate machines, in which their base machine is the same, their working parts are slightly different. The author takes advantage of the slight differences to combine them into one machine, so as to ensure that this machine is able to pile or pile. In addition, the structure of pile making and pressing machines is created by the author, which is somewhat simpler than the current construction and driving machine. This successful study will form the basis for manufacturing a pile driving machine and pile machine into a single machine, greatly reducing the costs of procurement and construction machine use.
