Organic micropollutants (OMPs) enter the aquatic environment via municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). As conventional WWTPs have limited capacity for the removal of OMPs, additional processes are required, like ozone - granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration. A specific lay-out of this process is the O3-STEP® process, in which the...

Activated carbon is employed for the adsorption of organic micropollutants (OMPs) from water, typically present in concentrations ranging from ng L<sup>−1</sup> to μg L<sup>−1</sup>. However, the efficacy of OMP removal is considerably deteriorated due to competitive adsorption from background dissolved organic matter (DOM), present at...

The first pandemic wave of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) induced a considerable increase in several antivirals and antibiotics in surface water. The common symptoms of COVID-19 are viral and bacterial infections, while comorbidities (e.g., hypertension and diabetes) and mental shock (e.g., insomnia and anxiety) are nonnegligible....

Organic micropollutants (OMPs) that occur in the aquatic environment at trace levels are emerging concerns to society. Domestic wastewater is an important source. OMPs end up in surface water and groundwater via conventional municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), penetrating drinking water. Comprising pharmaceuticals, personal care...

This study analyses the removal of organic micropollutants (OMPs) through iron electrocoagulation in the presence of solar radiation. Methylene Blue (MB) dye has been considered as a contaminant which is removed by the action of highly reactive oxygen species (ROS) formed as intermediates during electrocoagulation (charge dosage, CD = 30 C/L and...

A main focus of water managers with regard to micropollutants is the protection of aquatic ecology. However, micropollutants also have the potential to affect the production of clean drinking water. In this paper, we propose to consider the removal effort when assessing micro-pollutants with an ‘Effort Index’ (EI). Assessments using the EI...

The ecological state of receiving water bodies can be significantly influenced by organic micropollutants that are emitted via stormwater runoff. Reported efforts to quantify the emission of micropollutants mainly focus on sampling at combined sewer overflows and storm sewer outfalls, which can be challenging. An alternative method, called...

In the recent decade, a wide range of emerging contaminants (ECs) has been regularly detected in the wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) effluent, surface water and even groundwater. Among all these ECs, organic micropollutants (OMPs) are receiving increasing attention due to their characteristics of low concentration, difficulty in degradation...

Over the last decade, a wide range of organic micropollutants (OMP) has been regularly detected in surface water, groundwater and wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluent. These OMPs consist mainly of synthetic organic compounds (SOC) such as pharmaceuticals and pesticides. Although their concentrations in water bodies are usually low, they...

Agricultural activities can be important source of organic pollution. In agricultural intensive areas, organic chemicals have a high possibility of entering the water cycle, which could pose a potential risk to human health. Low-cost and high efficiency in-situ techniques instead of energy and money consuming ones to control agricultural organic...

Organic micropollutants (OMPs) that occur in the aquatic environment are an emerging concern. Adsorption by granular zeolites and regenerating exhausted zeolites by gaseous ozone is an innovative and advanced treatment technology for removing OMPs from wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluent. In this study, WWTP effluent spiked with eleven...

Biodegradation plays an important role in the removal of organic micropollutants (OMPs) during riverbank filtration (RBF) for drinking water production. The ability of ammonia-oxidizing microorganisms (AOM) to remove OMPs has attracted increasing attention. However, the distribution of AOM in RBF and its role in the degradation of OMPs...

Biological ion exchange (BIEX) refers to operating ion exchange (IX) filters with infrequent regeneration to favor the microbial growth on resin surface and thereby contribute to the removal of organic matter through biodegradation. However, the extent of biodegradation on BIEX resins is still debatable due to the difficulty in discriminating...

A field injection experiment was performed in an anoxic sandy aquifer over 6 days to assess sorption characteristics of 7 commonly applied pesticides in agriculture and 2 frequently detected metabolites. Pesticide use changed considerably in the last decades, and there is insufficient knowledge of the fate of currently used pesticides in...

Powdered activated carbon (PAC) is a promising technology to reduce organic micropollutants (OMPs) in drinking water treatment plants and combined with biological treatment processes such as rapid sand filters (RSFs), has the potential to remove a broad range of OMPs during water treatment. However, the removal of OMPs by a combination of two...

One framework type of high-silica zeolite only can effectively remove a limited range of organic micropollutants (OMPs) from water. In order to extend the OMP removal range, different types of high-silica zeolites need to be combined in the adsorption process. In this study, Mordernite (MOR) and ZSM-5 (MFI) high-silica zeolite powders were mixed...

Reverse osmosis (RO) is the most promising membrane technology in organic micropollutants (MPs) removal of drinking water treatment. For 78 MPs, passage and removal were evaluated with an ESPA3 RO membrane and the robustness of RO against MPs was studied. The MPs were classified according to their charge and hydrophobicity. The results showed...
