Sorption and desorption of pharmaceuticals and other micropollutants on sewage sludge
The consumption of pharmaceuticals and micropollutants has increased in recent decades. These substances are only partially removed in sewage treatment plants, resulting in contamination of the aquatic environment. Since these substances are designed to act in low concentrations, their long-term incidence may cause adverse effects on the environment and human health.
Sorption and desorption processes on sewage sludge play the important roles in the removal of micropollutants. Until now they were studied mostly at static standard conditions which differ from the real environment. Therefore this work is focused on characterization of sorption and desorption processes on different types of sludge at changing physico-chemical conditions (pH, temperature, oxidation-reduction potential, ionic strengh…).
