Miguel Grau del distrito de Paramonga] 2021-06-04T23:24:26+00:00 Wilfredo Tamay Felipa Jesús More López José Yovera Saldarriaga Ronald Rodríguez Espinoza Diómedes Sánchez Moreno Juan Ipanaqué Roña Dante Cruz Nieto Héctor Castro Bartolomé <p>This research seeks relationship between Environmental Education and solid waste in the High School Miguel Grau from the Paramonga district, Barranca province. It is worth mentioning that a schedule was developed with the participation of the principal, students, teachers, administrative staff and APAFA. The general objective is to determine how environmental education influences students. During the development of the investigation, a sample of 30 students was taken and questions were asked about recycling, segregation, final disposal and care of the environment. It is a basic cross-sectional type and a descriptive-correlational&nbsp; design was used. The data obtained were processed with descriptive and inferential statistics. Determining the answers to the questions that the majority throws the garbage in the classroom with 40%, throws it in the yard with 36.7%, there is no bin presence 96.6%, does not use a bin 96.6%, does not recycle the garbage 96.6%; in solid waste classification, the majority classify solid, liquid and gaseous 76.67%, organic and inorganic 76.7%, dangerous and non-dangerous with 83.3%, domiciliary with 50%; After learning about environmental care, the results were obtained from the cylinders to be taken to the landfill with 83.3% and organic waste with 50%; in environmental awareness, the majority throws in the cylinders with 66.7% and the presence of cans with 96.7%. What is interpreted that the student becomes aware in the care of the environment and recycles.</p> 2021-02-07T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Influence of the plastic law on the consumption of Biodegradable containers in the Peruvian Population [Educación Influencia de la ley de plásticos en el consumo de envases biodegradables en la población peruana] 2021-06-04T23:46:13+00:00 Flor Angélica Lavanda Reyes <p>The pollution is a phenomenon that occurs in every country on the planet, which leads to design strategies to mitigate it. Peru is no stranger to this and generates more than seven and a half million tons of solid waste per year, from which 64% comes from households and the average annual consumption per citizen is 30 kg of plastic. Worrying situation that led the government to approve Law N° 30884 called Law that Regulates Single-use Plastic and Disposable Containers or Containers. The problem was raised: How does the application of the Plastic Law influence the consumption of biodegradable packaging in the population? For this study, a survey was applied to a representative sample made up of randomly chosen consumers in various areas of the country. The results show that despite having carried out campaigns and strategies to stop using plastic bags and tecnopor containers, there are no relevant changes in consumer behavior.</p> 2021-05-04T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Influence Modeling and optimization of sulphide removal by catalytic oxidation of tannery fur effluents [Modelamiento y optimización de la remoción de sulfuros por oxidación catalítica de efluentes de pelambre de curtiduría] 2021-06-13T16:12:59+00:00 Jorge Luis Mendoza Bobadilla Adolfo Enrique Guerrero Escobedo Walter Moreno Eustaquio Marina Ponce Zavaleta Luisa Carbajo Arteaga <p>The residual effluents from the fur stage of the bovine leather tannery industry are characterized by having a high concentration of sulfides. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of aeration time and pH in the residual effluents of the leather stage of the tannery, with the catalysts MnO<sub>2</sub> and MnSO<sub>4</sub> separately; as well as, determine adjustment models through the response surface methodology and the optimal intervals of the best conditions that lead to a higher percentage of sulfide removal. For this reason, the sulphide removal percentage was evaluated from samples extracted from the pellet stage, by means of catalytic oxidation treatments; varying the catalyst, pH and aeration time. The catalysts used were manganese dioxide (MnO<sub>2</sub>) and manganese sulfate (MnSO<sub>4</sub>) and for each catalyst the pH was varied in the values ​​of 8.5; 9.5; 10.2 and 13.4; likewise, the aeration time was varied in the values ​​of 30, 60, 90, 120, 150, 180, 210 and 240 minutes. 64 treatments were carried out, with 3 repetitions each, reporting the average values ​​of the sulfide removal percentage. The response surface methodology was used to adjust the correlation of the variables to a quadratic model; Likewise, through contour graphs the regions with the highest percentage of sulfide removal were easily identified and by superimposing contour graphs the optimal ranges of the variables pH and aeration time were determined for removal percentages greater than 98%. Based on this evaluation, it is proposed for treatments with manganese dioxide, aeration times between 160 to 240 min and pH between 8.5 to 9 and for treatments with manganese sulfate, aeration times between 110 to 240 min and pH between 8.5 to 9.8. The coefficients of multiple determination R2 for the models with catalyst MnO<sub>2</sub> and MnSO<sub>4</sub> were 97.51% and 95.12% respectively. With the MnSO<sub>4</sub> catalyst, higher removal percentages were achieved at a shorter aeration time, compared to the treatments carried out with the MnO<sub>2</sub> catalyst.</p> 2021-06-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Energy & Environmental Sciences
