Anaerobic co-digestion of potato processing wastewater with pig slurry and abattoir wastewater [electronic resource]
BACKGROUND: Small-scale experimental investigations were carried out on the anaerobic digestion of potato processing wastewater and its co-digestion with pig slurry and/or abattoir wastewater. A simple and rapid procedure ...
Photocatalytic degradation of 17α-ethynylestradiol in environmental samples by ZnO under simulated solar radiation
BACKGROUND: Recently, the fate of emerging micro-contaminants in environmentally relevant samples has attracted considerable attention. Semiconductor photocatalysis may offer an appealing methodology to treat such contaminants
Effects of wastewater applied with discrete irrigation techniques on strawberry plants’ productivity and the safety, quality characteristics and antioxidant capacity of fruits
•Wastewater was applied with drips and sprinklers for strawberry irrigation.•Irrigation treatments did not significantly impact fruits’ marketability and taste.•Heavy metals in strawberry fruits were below the MPLs for ...
Urban wastewater treatment plants as hotspots for the release of antibiotics in the environment: A review
Urban wastewater treatment plants (UWTPs) are among the main sources of antibiotics' release into various compartments of the environment worldwide. The aim of the present paper is to critically review the fate and removal ...
Review: Dissolved effluent organic matter: Characteristics and potential implications in wastewater treatment and reuse applications
Wastewater reuse is currently considered globally as the most critical element of sustainable water management. The dissolved effluent organic matter (dEfOM) present in biologically treated urban wastewater, consists of a ...
Investigating the fate of iodinated X-ray contrast media iohexol and diatrizoate during microbial degradation in an MBBR system treating urban wastewater
The capability of a moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) to remove the iodinated contrast media (ICM) iohexol (IOX) and diatrizoate (DTZ) from municipal wastewater was studied. A selected number of clones of microorganisms ...
Transformation products and reaction pathways of carbamazepine during photocatalytic and sonophotocatalytic treatment
•Degradation of CBZ during US, TiO2/UV and TiO2/UV/US processes has been evaluated.•The combined TiO2/UV/US oxidation resulted in significant enhancement of the CBZ degradation rate.•Transformation products were identified ...
