Scholarcy highlights

  • Two polycyclic musk fragrances and nine endocrine disrupting chemicals were analysed in several waste water treatment plants
  • A membrane bioreactor in pilot scale was operated at different solid retention times and the results obtained are compared to conventional activated sludge plants operated at different SRTs
  • Nonylphenolpolyehtoxylates were removed in higher extend in very low-loaded conventional WWTPs, due to variations of redox conditions, necessary for the degradation of those compounds
