    Vol. 26, Issue 1, 2023

    Abstract:This research examined the language status of Central Bikol spoken in Legazpi City and used as a language of instruction in MTB-MLE. The Functions, Acquisition, Motivation, Environment, and Differentiation (FAMED) conditions identified the common factors that determine the level of language use, while the Expanded Graded Intergenerational Disruption Scale (EGIDS) measured the level of language vitality. This study used purposive sampling in selecting 12 native speakers of the language. The metho...

    Copper-Activated In Situ Chemical Oxidation of Cyanide in Water Using Persulfate
    Vol. 26, Issue 1, 2023

    Abstract:Cyanide is found commonly in effluents coming from metallurgical processes. Cyanide toxicity poses a serious environmental threat. In this study, the stoichiometry, kinetics, and mechanism of the in situ chemical oxidation of cyanide in the presence of copper-activated persulfate were investigated. Ion selective electrode (ISE) was used to monitor the concentration of cyanide. Chemical and spectroscopic analyses were employed to characterize the products formed upon oxidation. An accelerated rea...

    Potential of Solid Waste Compost and Spent Mushroom Substrate in Earthfill Quarry Topsoil Rehabilitation
    Vol. 26, Issue 1, 2023

    Abstract:The increasing number of quarry activities in the Philippines has been causing extensive soil damage, altering its properties, and affecting the soil’s post-mining productivity. This problem was established in this study where earthfill quarried topsoil (QT) in Gubat, Sorsogon, Philippines, showed diminished soil physicochemical characteristics compared to sampled nearby topsoil with undisturbed vegetation (NQT). This study further assessed the potential of two compost materials, i.e., solid w...
