EDC & PPCP removal from Wastewater-demonstrated full scale technical solutions
We provide and present the challenges and full scale, proven technical solutions including results for a $22MM MBR+Ozone treatment system currently operating in Ireland. Other technologies including carbon, advanced oxidation, and ultrasonic destruction of EDCs and PPCPs are discussed in the context of at-source vs end-of-pipe points of application. Analytical methods required for "proof of concept" including HPLC-MS-MS, Yeast Estrogen Receptor (YES) Assay and Mictotox are also presented. The audience will learn about what works and how to develop and demonstrate practical, real-world solutions.
