Columns of 5 cm, 15 cm and 24 cm lengths are tested on their removal efficiency on the 3 kinds of pollution. • The physical contamination involves 2 scenarios of pollution. The first scenario is considering a high pollution area; the turbidity according to this is 70 NTU. The second scenario is a normal pollution area, with a turbidity of 30 NTU. The stormwater is collected and by mixing different rainwater the correct turbidity is obtained. The first step of suspended matter removal is the pre-sedimentation step, which is carried out after the suspended matter is settled down 15 min. Secondly the stormwater is poured through each column, and the removal efficiency is calculated. • The heavy metal removal efficiency experiments are divided into 2 parts. First the influence of suspended matter on heavy metal sorption is examined. Afterwards the removal efficiency of heavy metals by the columns is investigated by using AAS. • For the removal of organic compounds the same procedure is followed as heavy metals. The influence of suspended matter on organic compounds sorption is determined by HPLC" , "dc.format.mimetype": "application/pdf" , "dc.language.iso": "eng" , "dc.relation.ispartofseries": "Enginyeria Química (TFG)" , "dc.rights": "Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Spain" , "dc.rights.uri": "http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/es/" , "dc.subject": "Aigua de pluja" , "dc.subject": "Coure -- Absorció i adsorció" , "dc.subject": "Metalls pesants -- Absorció i adsorció" , "dc.subject": "Aigua -- Depuració" , "dc.subject": "Suro" , "dc.subject": "Antracè" , "dc.subject": "Heavy metals -- Absorption and adsorption" , "dc.subject": "Copper -- Absorption and adsorption" , "dc.subject": "Water -- Purification" , "dc.subject": "Cork" , "dc.subject": "Rainwater" , "dc.subject": "Anthracene" , "dc.title": "The influence of the length of a cork column on the removal of particles, metals and organic compounds from rainwater runoff" , "dc.type": "info:eu-repo/semantics/bachelorThesis" , "dc.rights.accessRights": "info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess" , "dc.coverage.geolocation": "east=2.112724299999968; north=41.3839195; name=UPC Escola Politècnica Superior d'Edificació de Barcelona (EPSEB)" }
