Catalytic Oxidation of Pharmaceutical Compounds in Wastewater Effluents
Pharmaceuticals have been identified as a group of chemicals of concern in wastewaters due to growing regulatory pressures on river water quality. Recent assessments of advanced treatment technologies (Granular activated carbon and Ozonation) have shown them to be prohibitively expensive both financially and environmentally. This research investigated the ability of iron based catalysts (Fe-TAML) to reduce concentrations of a range of steroids, pharmaceuticals and personal care products in wastewater. Results demonstrate that using Fe-TAML catalysts is an effecive treatment for most of the steroids and pharmaceuticals tested. Following further optimisation, TAML may provide a low capex cost and flexible addition to wastewater treatment.
