Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in Wastewater - A Study of Treatment Options and Potential Costs

 
Price: £11  

The objective of the study was to gather and present information on processes for removing endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) from wastewater treatment works effluents and to provide a methodology to determine the cost of imposing new controls on these. Treatment options identified included, extended biological treatment, use of activated carbon or the addition of a chemical oxidation stage. The study identified significant gaps in information regarding process performance. Costings showed that there would be substantial financial and environmental costs for society in achieving possible standards and that serious consideration should be given to alternative abatement options.
