Recently, the potential health and environmental risks of silica nanoparticles (SiO(2) NPs) are attracting great interest. However, little is known about their possible impacts on wastewater biological nitrogen and phosphorus removal. In this study, the acute and chronic effects of SiO(2) NPs on activated sludge viability and biological nutrient removal performance were investigated. It was found that the presence of environmentally relevant concentration (1 mg/L) of SiO(2) NPs caused no… CONTINUE READING
