Sustainable drinking water treatment biological filters

Project Details


The project will cover a range of compounds and biological filter activities, but regarding the bulk compounds emphasis will be on ammonium removal (nitrification) and iron/manganese removal. Regarding organic micropollutants the activities will focus on pesticides (MCPP, BAM and Isoproturon as model compounds) and pharmaceuticals (with synthetic estrogen 17α-ethinylestradiol (EE2) as model compound). See section 6 in Project description, App D.
