Wastewater Remediation Studies
MUROPURO is a figure in the pantheon of Visayan deities responsible for the springs, rivers, and lakes. Bodies of water which grow increasingly polluted with rapid industrialization and population growth as they serve as dumping sites for industrial, commercial, and residential effluents. This section contains studies that explore various materials to treat a particular type of waste – wastewater – that are among the principal effluents polluting these bodies. The material of interest in each study is used to remediate different pollutants such as heavy metals – usually from manufacturing waste, and phosphates and nitrates – run-offs from agricultural activity.
These studies fall under the National Integrated Basic Research Agenda (NIBRA). Particularly, these address research for sustainable communities on understanding and, if applicable, addressing environmental and anthropogenic activities.
