Abstract The chelating agent ethylenediaminetetraacetate (EDTA) is not degraded by conventional biological and physicochemical methods for the treatment of wastewater and the purification of drinking water. Of the measurable organic compounds it is the one present at the highest concentration in many surface and drinking waters. In recent years, however, studies have demonstrated that EDTA can be degraded by specially enriched bacterial cultures and in wastewater treatment plants receiving EDTA… CONTINUE READING
