    Abstract: This article describes a laboratory-based case study to remove methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) from contaminated water with tungsten oxide (WO3) catalysts loaded with ruthenium (Ru) and platinum (Pt) metals. Characterization of the synthesized catalysts were conducted by using the: (i) X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) data for the purity, (ii) vis... Show More

    Abstract: Bituminous hot mixes for flexible pavement construction are the most widely used throughout the world. Mainly aggregate, sand, bitumen and filler are used for flexible pavement construction. But in case of filler, engineers are divided according to their choice depending on the availability of materials and environmental condition. In this investig... Show More
