  1. 1. Fate of perfluoroalkyl acids in the aquatic environment with a focus on mass balance studies

    Författare :Marko Filipovic; Urs Berger; Michael McLachlan; Crispin Halsall; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; PFAA; PFOS; AFFF; tap water; ground water; WWTP; mass balance; atmospheric deposition; rivers; Baltic Sea; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are man-made chemicals. Their unique properties make them beneficial for a wide range of industrial and consumer product applications, such as in aqueous film forming foam (AFFF), durable water repellent clothing, hydraulic oils and food packaging materials.

  2. 2. Pharmaceuticals – improved removal from municipal wastewater and their occurrence in the Baltic Sea

    Författare :Berndt Björlenius; Gen Larsson; Antonius J. A. van Maris; Hallvard Ødegaard; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Advanced wastewater treatment; WWTP; pilot plant; pharmaceutical residues; removal of pharmaceuticals; activated carbon; ozonation; nanofiltration; biomarker; Baltic Sea; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Sammanfattning : Pharmaceutical residues are found in the environment due to extensive use in human and veterinary medicine. The active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) have a potential impact in non-target organisms. Municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are not designed to remove APIs. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Contribution of polyfluoroalkyl phosphate esters (PAPs) and other precursor compounds to perfluoroalkyl carboxylates (PFCAs) in humans and the environment

    Författare :Ulrika Eriksson; Anna Kärrman; Bert van Bavel; Gunilla Lindström; Jonathan Martin; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PAPs; precursors; PFCA; exposure; indoor dust; human serum; WWTP; bird eggs; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Sammanfattning : Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are anthropogenic compounds that have been spread all over the world. The use of fluorotelomer compounds, short-chained homologues, and other PFASs with perfluorinated moieties has emerged recent years. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Pharmaceutical compounds; a new challenge for wastewater treatment plants

    Författare :Maja Dlugolecka; Elzbieta Plaza; Bengt Hultman; Nicklas Paxéus; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; activated sludge; biodegradation; granular activated carbon GAC ; membrane bioreactor MBR ; pharmaceutical compounds; wastewater; Water engineering; Vattenteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Analytical analyses conducted at the Himmerfjärden WWTP (285.000 PE connected) identified 70 pharmaceutical compounds belonging to different therapeutic classes. Such organic micropollutants at low detected concentration range of µg - ng l-1 did not affect the treatment processes at WWTP. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Application of magnetic nanoparticles and reactive filter materials for wastewater treatment

    Författare :Ramnath Lakshmanan; Gunaratna Kuttuva Rajarao; Erik Dahlquist; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Reactive filter materials; magnetic nanoparticles; wastewater treatment process; nutrient reduction; sludge water content; toxicity of magnetic nanoparticles;

    Sammanfattning : Lately sewage wastewater treatment processes (WWTP) are facing challenges due to strict regulations in quality of effluent standards and waste production. The reuse of wastewater treatment effluents is rapidly gaining attention as a means of achieving sustainable water supply. Therefore, new methods are required to achieve an efficient WWTP. LÄS MER
