Micropollutant biotransformation kinetics associate with WWTP process parameters and microbial community characteristics.
The objective of this work was to identify relevant wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) parameters and underlying microbial processes that influence the biotransformation of a diverse set ofExpand
A tiered procedure for assessing the formation of biotransformation products of pharmaceuticals and biocides during activated sludge treatment.
Upon partial degradation of polar organic micropollutants during activated sludge treatment, transformation products (TPs) may be formed that enter the aquatic environment in the treated effluent.Expand
High-throughput identification of microbial transformation products of organic micropollutants.
During wastewater treatment, many organic micropollutants undergo microbially mediated reactions resulting in the formation of transformation products (TPs). Little is known on the reaction pathwaysExpand
Is biological treatment a viable alternative for micropollutant removal in drinking water treatment processes?
In western societies, clean and safe drinking water is often taken for granted, but there are threats to drinking water resources that should not be underestimated. Contamination of drinking waterExpand
Association of Biodiversity with the Rates of Micropollutant Biotransformations among Full-Scale Wastewater Treatment Plant Communities
ABSTRACT Biodiversities can differ substantially among different wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) communities. Whether differences in biodiversity translate into differences in the provision ofExpand
Free chlorine demand and cell survival of microbial suspensions.
The utility of chlorine residual and chlorine demand as a surrogate for microbial contamination in the water distribution system was evaluated. The chlorine demanded by and cell survival of pureExpand
Rapid removal of organic micropollutants from water by a porous β-cyclodextrin polymer
The global occurrence in water resources of organic micropollutants, such as pesticides and pharmaceuticals, has raised concerns about potential negative effects on aquatic ecosystems and humanExpand
Structure-based interpretation of biotransformation pathways of amide-containing compounds in sludge-seeded bioreactors.
Partial microbial degradation of xenobiotic compounds in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) results in the formation of transformation products, which have been shown to be released and detectableExpand
pH-dependent biotransformation of ionizable organic micropollutants in activated sludge.
Removal of micropollutants (MPs) during activated sludge treatment can mainly be attributed to biotransformation and sorption to sludge flocs, whereby the latter process is known to be of minorExpand
The functional and taxonomic richness of wastewater treatment plant microbial communities are associated with each other and with ambient nitrogen and carbon availability.
The number of functional traits of a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) microbial community (i.e. functional richness) is thought to be an important determinant of its overall functional performance,Expand
