Processes for advanced removal in wastewater treatment plants.

Various studies over recent years have shown that treated municipal wastewater contributes significantly to water pollution from micropollutants. This contamination can be minimized by upgrading current wastewater treatment plants to include an additional treatment step. In the ‘Micropoll Strategy’ project complementary treatment steps have been evaluated. This report shows that water quality can be significantly improved using processes such as powdered activated carbon adsorption or ozonation.
