LIMONENE AS A RAW MATERIAL FROM
Limonene is a monoterpenic compound extracted from citrus peels.
Limonene can be used as is due to its characteristic pleasant smell or can be
used as raw material for a series of synthesis in order to obtain valuable
compounds. Being a non-polar organic compound it may be used as a solvent
for non-polar organic compounds, including polystyrene. This paper presents a
succinct set of data from the literature related to the obtaining and possible
applications of limonene.

The overall objective of a sludge management strategy should be to find
outlets for the sludge which are safe, environmentally acceptable, secure and

RECYCLING INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER WITH HEAVY
METAL CONTAIN BY ION EXCHANGE
Removing heavy metal ions from industrial wastewater by ion
exchange is based on the properties of the ion – cationic exchanger to change
their own captions with those from the wastewater. The purification technology
by ion exchange consists of replacing the polluting ion from the used water with
another ion, which is much less polluted, or which results in obtaining an
insoluble chemical compound or one that is easier to remove. The ion
exchange between the zeolite and the heavy metal ions is a type of adsorption
-chemical reaction – denuding, and the transfer through the zeolite pores
determines the process. The process is favorite by temperature increase, by pH
increase of the solution from the wastewater, the heavy metal ion concentration
increase of the initial solution, the quantitative increase of the volcanic tuff.

CONSIDERATIONS REGARDING THE IMPACT OF
IRRIGATION UPON SOIL CRUST
The soil crust is formatted as a result of excessive humidity absorbed
by soil, which exceed its capacity of retaining water.
This leads to additional expense for the works, which provide remedy.
In conditions of irrigation these are performed after each watering. The
sprinkling watering has a more negative effect than in furrow watering. Soils do
not form this crust contain sand 60-80 %, dust 10-20 % and clay 5-10 %.
The main factor, which generates formation of crust on the cultivated
land, is the lack of soil particle formations stable in water and big amounts of
clay colloidal particles.

CHEMICAL RECYCLING OF POLYMERS
Excessive growth in recent years on the market of plastics materials
has increased the amount of wastes. Therefore, there were made a lot of
researches on plastics materials in order to establish an economically viable
method of recycling, with low environmental impact. A method that meets these
conditions and witch does not require any washing and separation of polymers
and/or waste materials based on these polymers, is the chemical recycling by
“pyrolysis”. By pyrolysis process, wastes are converted into liquid fractions
close to commercial fuels, in certain reaction conditions. The results obtained
are influenced by the temperature and catalysts that were used. The paper is a
review of literature data related to chemical recycling of polymers.

the traditional construction technologies (usually the interventions on a historic
load-bearing structure also entail consolidation works, not only the maintaining
of the present state, thus the term the conservation of a historic load-bearing
structure is rarely used). The conservation of the historic load-bearing
structures is related to: all those interventions which the present technical state

importance; if it is adequately carried out, it can prevent the use of the other
much more extensive and expensive measures in the long run, especially in the
