Fate of pharmaceuticals in contaminated urban wastewater effluent under ultrasonic irradiation
The application of sonolysis (US) for remediation of wastewater is an area of increasing interest. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ultrasonic (US) process on the degradation of pharmaceuticals (diclofenac (DCF), ...
Mineralisation of the antibiotic amoxicillin in pure and surface waters by artificial UVA- and sunlight-induced Fenton oxidation
BACKGROUND: The degradation and mineralisation of the antibiotic amoxicillin by photo-Fenton reactions, mediated by artificial UVA or solar irradiation, were investigated. Experiments were conducted with 30 mg L−1 amoxicillin ...
Effects of selective water withdrawal schemes on thermal stratification in Kouris Dam in Cyprus
Thermal stratification and its seasonal variations in Kouris Dam in Cyprus were simulated, and the impact of five different water withdrawal schemes was studied, using the 2-D, laterally averaged CE-QUAL-W2 reservoir model. ...
Removal of residual pharmaceuticals from aqueous systems by advanced oxidation processes
Over the past few years, pharmaceuticals are considered as an emerging environmental problem due to their continuous input and persistence to the aquatic ecosystem even at low concentrations. Advanced oxidation processes ...
