Treatment for New and Emerging Pesticides
Metaldehayde is used to control slugs in agriculture and has been identified in many raw and some drinking waters in recent years. This project investigated the removal of metaldehyde and other emerging pesticides by conventional and alternative treatment processes, reviewed sensors and on-line analytical technologies, and also investigated the leaching of metaldehydes from slug pellets. The results demonstrated that conventional treatment could deal with only low concentrations of metaldehyde at substantial cost. Alternative treatments and detection techniques were identified, and it was demonstrated that changes in slug pellet manufacturing could reduce the amount of metaldehyde released to watercourse.
