  • Industrial effluents from the pharmaceutical industry often contain high concentrations of phenolic compounds. The presence of “anthropogenic” organic compounds in the environment is a serious problem for human health; therefore, it merits special attention by the competent public agencies. Different methods have been proposed in the last two decades for the treatment of this kind of industrial residues, the most important of which are those utilizing absorption columns, vaporization and… CONTINUE READING
