Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in Wastewater: A Review of Occurrence and Removal

Price: £9  

The objective of the study was to review the current state of knowledge of the removal and degradation of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in wastewater treatment works. The steroid oestrogens (SOs) were identified as the most likely group of substances found in treated sewage effluent for which regulatory target values may be set. Other EDCs could be controlled at source but this option is not available for SOs. The concentrations of SOs in effluent were reviewed and additional treatment may be needed where dilution is low. Present knowledge of the effectiveness of treatment for SO removal is very limited.
