The ever-increasing daily use of engineered nanoparticles will lead to heightened levels of these materials in the environment. These nanomaterials will eventually go into the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), therefore, resulting into a pressing need for information on their aggregation behavior and kinetics in the wastewater aqueous matrix. In this work, we dispersed two different metal oxide nanoparticles (ZnO and TiO2) into the influent of two different WWTPs. Through the time-resolved… CONTINUE READING
