Wastewater micropollutants level: a challenge for Industries and Municipalities
Organic and inorganic (e.g. metals) micropollutants, although invisible to the naked eyes, are transported by water and accumulate in the environment and living organisms, causing, in the worst case, poisoning or other serious diseases.
As a result, discharge regulations are becoming stricter and controls on discharged water are more frequent in Europe, North America and Asia.
The challenge is even harder when organic micropollutants, like PAH (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons) and EASs (Endocrine Active Substances, Pharmaceuticals..), have recently been put forward and have come to the attention of the public.
As a result, pressure is increasing both in industrial and urban water treatment sites to reduce the level of contaminants in wastewater.
