I am Miguel Mauricio Aguilera Flores, a doctoral student in Environmental Sciences at the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí and a full-time professor at the ‘Instituto Politécnico Nacional’ in the Interdisciplinary Professional Unit of Engineering Campus Zacatecas. I have been training students in Environmental Engineering for a decade. I am teaching subjects such as Environmental Risk and Impact, Comprehensive Waste Management, Comprehensive Water Management, Soil and Aquifer Remediation, and Process and Equipment Design. I have directed 19 undergraduate theses and six research projects focused on the comprehensive management of urban solid waste and hazardous waste, industrial and municipal wastewater treatment, and hydrocarbon contaminated soils remediation. These treatments are based on bioprocesses. The results obtained from the thesis and research projects have been disseminated in more than 26 national and international congresses, with more than 55 papers and 17 pos
In this work, the effectiveness of a natural coagulant produced from animal biomass (waste) for removing turbidity in the wastewater of a fish farm was evaluated using an experimental design of Mix-Process-Qualitative under a cubic x linear model. This design optimized the coagulation processes, evaluating the effects and interactions between the mixture’s components: produced natural coagulant and two commercial synthetic coagulants (aluminum and iron salts), and the optimal dose of coagulant. Likewise, an ANOVA analysis was carried out for the experimental data obtained in the study, obtaining 3D response surface graphs. The results showed that the coagulation treatment for the wastewater from the fish farm could be technically and economically since an approximate 100% turbidity removal efficiency could be achieved using a coagulant dose of 200 mg/L (14% natural coagulant and 86% aluminum salts). The results of the ANOVA showed a significant model (P <0.0001). Therefore, the experimental data fit a cubic x linear model. These results support the use of animal biomass to produce natural coagulants that function as coagulant aids in the treatment of wastewater and, thus, reduce the use of chemical coagulants, which cause effects on human health and the environment.
