Contents Notes
Emerging Contaminants in Waste Waters: Sources and Occurrence -- Analysis of Emerging Contaminants of Municipal and Industrial Origin -- Acute and Chronic Effects of Emerging Contaminants -- Traceability of Emerging Contaminants from Wastewater to Drinking Water -- Impact of Emergent Contaminants in the Environment: Environmental Risk Assessment. The group of non-regulated contaminants termed "emerging contaminants" mainly comprises products used in large quantities in everyday life, such as human and veterinary pharmaceuticals, personal care products, surfactants and surfactant residues, plasticizers and various industrial additives. The occurrence of "emerging contaminants" in wastewaters, and their behavior during wastewater treatment and production of drinking water are key issues in the re-use of water resources. Emerging Contaminants from Industrial and Municipal Waste focuses on innovative treatment technologies for the elimination of emerging contaminants from wastewater and drinking water. The respective treatment processes, such as membrane bioreactors, photocatalysis, ozonation and advanced oxidation are dealt with in detail. The book also discusses sources and occurrence of emerging contaminants in municipal and industrial waste, giving a concise and critical overview of state-of-the-art analytical methods for their identification. Further important aspects covered by the book include the acute and chronic effects and overall impact of emerging contaminants on the environment.
