The present invention pertains to wastewater treatment. More particularly, the invention concerns inactivation of biologically active compounds, such as estrogenic compounds, present in wastewater comprising sewage by the use of an oxidant, such as CIO2. A method is disclosed for inactivating one or more estrogenic substance(s) in wastewater, such as in a wastewater treatment plant, said method comprising a step of adding a dose of CIO2 to the water to be discharged, and said CIO2-dose being less than the CIO2- demand of the water to be discharged.
