Project Details


    The objective of the research project will be to investigate the fate of emerging organic micropollutants during wastewater and sludge treatment and to study their fate in the aquatic environment.The title of the proposed research project will be "Investigation of emerging organic micropollutants fate during wastewater treatment and study of their behaviour during treated wastewater disposal into the aquatic environment'. The budget of this proposal is 480.0000 Euros and its duration is 4 years. The specific objectives of this project are as follows:

    a) to study the fate of several emerging micropollutants such as PFCs, EDCs, pharmaceuticals, benzotriazoles in different treatment processes (activated sludge, anaerobic digestion, chlorination),

    b) to study the fate of these compounds in aquatic environment after treated wastewater disposal (role of photodegradation, biodegradation, sorption) and

    c) to investigate the formation of metabolites of selected micropollutants using LC-MS MS techniques
