The fate of various alkylphenolic compounds during wastewater treatment was studied at full scale in thirteen plants, selected in order to cover a wide range of treatment processes, sizes and countries. In-depth investigations consisted in the analysis of nonylphenols, short chained (n = 1, 2) but also long chained polyethoxylates in raw wastewaters, effluents, raw and treated sludges. The degradation of long chained polyethoxylates (APnEO) was shown, resulting in significant production of… CONTINUE READING
