Micropollutants and Challenges: Emerging in the Aquatic Environments and Treatment Processes systematically summarizes the characteristics, micropollutants types, production resources, occurrence in aqueous environments, health effects, methods of detection and treatments. Throughout each chapter, the following topics will be presented: (i) The quality and quantity evaluation of aquatic micro-pollutants, (ii) The need for innovative and affordable wastewater treatment technologies, and (iii) Combinations of different conventional and advanced technologies, including the biological and plant-based strategies that seem most promising.
- Presents information on the micropollutants that threaten all living organisms, showing the importance and relevance of this topic
- Assesses the effects of micropollutants on surface and groundwater
- Provides solutions for the removal of micropollutants in conventional and advanced treatment processes and compares the efficiency of different processes
