Emerging Technologies for Removing Pharmaceutical Compounds from Wastewater Effluents
This study reviewed the potential of emerging technologies to treat pharmaceuticals of concern, as identified by the Chemical Investigations Programme steering group, and meet future potential obligations with more cost-effective, 'carbon friendly' treatment options than those currently available. The study identified eight technologies that could potentially effectively treat a wide range of pharmaceuticals. These technologies were evaluated with respect to integration within sewage treatment works and estimated whole life costs and ranked based on these criteria. The ranking identified three technologies (based on ultrasonic enhanced ozone oxidation, ultrasound enhanced ultraviolet radiation and carbon adsorbants) recommended for further investigation.
