The paper presents an examination of the possibility of applying raspberry fruit extract (Rubus idaeus L.) as a green inhibitor of general corrosion of copper in 3% NaCl. Raspberry fruits (Rubus idaeus L.) sort Polka was collected from the Starposle near Kakanj, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Raspberry fruit extracts in ethanol were obtained by the Soxhle...

This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation into the effect of nano-silica addition on the mechanical properties and durability of concrete. Three mixes of concrete containing 0%, 2%, and 4% nano-silica by weight of cement were tested. The slump of fresh concrete as well as compressive strength, dynamic modulus of elasticity at...

Fly ash class F from Thermal Power Plant “Stanari” was used in combination with highly plastic brick clay from Busovača to develop building bricks. The brick clay and fly ash were characterized for chemical and mineralogical composition, grain size distribution, and specific gravity. The fly ash has a higher proportion of larger particl...

Austenitic stainless steel is mostly used at high temperatures. It is known that during heating of the austenitic stainless steel with increasing temperature and time of annealing a microstructure is changed i.e. there is the precipitation of carbides followed by precipitation of secondary phases as a sigma phase. The presence of the delta ferrite ...

Due to the very complex composition of leachate wastewater, combining two or more physical, chemical, or biological processes, carried out simultaneously or sequentially, is highly needed in order to obtain effluent suitable for further discharge into sewage. In this paper, electrocoagulation coupled with synthetic zeolite (EC-NaX), electrocoagulat...

Water hardness and deposition of incrustation is a problem in households and industry. In this regard, several technologies have been developed with the purpose of water softening and preventing the deposition of incrustation. The ion exchange method is the most commonly used method and is considered a conventional method. However, due to the short...

Sulphur in steel is an undesirable element because it lowers all technological and uses values of steel products. During the steelmaking process, the desulphurization process depends on the thermodynamic conditions, the used desulphurizes, and the stability of the formed sulphides. The desulphurization technology in the production of low-carbon ste...

Steel X8CrNiS18-9 (standard EN 10088-3: 2005) is the most commonly used from the group of austenitic stainless steel in terms of machinability. The content of sulphur present in the steel from 0,15 to 0,35% has the exclusive task to improve the machinability. However, while sulphur improves machinability it simultaneously reduces the resistance of ...

Brown stock washing is one of the major unit operations within the pulp manufacturing business. Poor operating washers have the potential to significantly and negatively affect almost every other area of a pulp and paper mill, including the mill’s environmental performance. The objective of the pulp washing is to remove the soluble impurities...
