Behavior of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and hormones in a sewage treatment plant.
Two cosmetic ingredients (galaxolide, tonalide), eight pharmaceuticals (carbamazepine, diazepam, diclofenac, ibuprofen, naproxen, roxithromycin, sulfamethoxazole and iopromide) and three hormones… Expand
Removal of pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) under nitrifying and denitrifying conditions.
The contribution of volatilization, sorption and transformation to the removal of 16 Pharmaceutical and Personal Care Products (PPCPs) in two lab-scale conventional activated sludge reactors, working… Expand
Determination of the solid-water distribution coefficient (Kd) for pharmaceuticals, estrogens and musk fragrances in digested sludge.
This work determined the solid-water distribution coefficient (K(d)) and the organic carbon normalized distribution coefficient (K(oc)) of several pharmaceuticals (carbamazepine, ibuprofen, naproxen,… Expand
Methanogenic and non-methanogenic activity tests. Theoretical basis and experimental set up
Abstract The theoretical basis of the methods allowing to determine and calculate methanogenic and non-methanogenic sludge activities in anaerobic digesters are examined and, accordingly, proper… Expand
How are pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) removed from urban wastewaters?
The presence of bioactive trace pollutants such as pharmaceuticals and ingredients of personal care products (PPCPs) in different environmental compartments (rivers, lakes, groundwaters, sediments,… Expand
Fate of pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) during anaerobic digestion of sewage sludge.
The behaviour of 13 pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) has been studied during anaerobic digestion of sewage sludge: two musks (Galaxolide and Tonalide), one tranquilliser (Diazepam),… Expand
Removal of cosmetic ingredients and pharmaceuticals in sewage primary treatment.
Two physico-chemical processes, coagulation-flocculation and flotation, have been assessed for enhancing the removal of some selected pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) present in… Expand
Laccase-catalyzed degradation of anti-inflammatories and estrogens
Pharmaceuticals are regarded as emerging environmental pollutants since many of them are ubiquitous, recalcitrant and biologically active. In this paper, the degradation of several pharmaceuticals… Expand
Sodium inhibition in the anaerobic digestion process: Antagonism and adaptation phenomena
Abstract The effect of sodium on the methanization of volatile fatty acid (VFA) mixtures was evaluated for three different sludges. Sodium concentrations causing 50% inhibition ranged from 3 to 16 g… Expand
Comparison of predicted and measured concentrations of selected pharmaceuticals, fragrances and hormones in Spanish sewage.
A review of consumption and excretion rates of 17 pharmaceuticals, two musk fragrances and two hormones by the Spanish population in 2003 was performed. For that purpose, three different models were… Expand
