  Dewatered alum sludge from drinking water treatment plants was exploited as carbon dioxide (CO2) adsorbent in a fixed-bed (CO2)lumn system. In this study, the effects of 6 parameters including particle size of adsorbent, heat treatment of adsorbent, adsorbents dosage, adsorption temperature, flow rate of adsorbate and (CO2) ncentration on the fixed-bed adsorption of (CO2) were investigated using Response Surface Methodology 2 2 (RSM). The experimental data was successfully fitted with the regression model to identify the significant parameters and predict the optimum value parameters for maximizing (CO2) adsorption capacity. Analysis of 2 Variance (ANOVA) revealed that (CO2) ncentration was the most significant factor influenced the (CO2) adsorption capacity. The experimental data of (CO2) adsorption capacity were in a good agreement with the 2 predicted data from the regression model. The highest fixed-bed (CO2) adsorption capacity of 10.028 mmol.g 2 –1 (441.24 mg.g–1) was achieved using 1 g of 450-500 μm of 800°C thermally treated alum sludge at (CO2) ncentration of 8000 mg.L–1 with a flow rate of 90 mL.min–1 at 25°C. The results suggested that thermally treated alum sludge is a promising solid adsorbent for (CO2) capture.

  Optimization of three parameters, temperature (25-35°C), moisture content (40% (w/v)-60% (w/v) and inoculum sizes (5% (w/v)-15% (w/v) were investigated and optimized by Response Surface Methodology (RSM) for optimal mannanase production by Aspergillus terreus SUK-1. A second order polynomial equation was fitted and the optimum condition was established. The result showed that the moisture content was a critical factor in terms of its effect on mannanase. The optimum condition for mannanase production was predicted at 42.86% (w/v) initial moisture (31°C) temperature and 5.5% (w/v) inoculum size . The predicted optimal parameter were tested in the laboratory and the mannanase activity 45.12 IU mL-1 were recorded to be closed to the predicted value (44.80 IU mL-1). Under the optimized SSF condition (31°C, 42.86% moisture content (w/v) and 5.5% inoculum size (w/v)), the maximum mannanase production was to prevail about 45.12 IU mL-1 compare to before optimized (30°C, 50% moisture content (w/v) and 10% inoculum size (w/v)) was only 34.42 IU mL-1.
