  • This work evaluates the removal/degradation of lindane in water contaminated by agricultural activity. A test to treat lindane-contaminated water was carried out using four SF-CW systems operating simultaneously: two fed with lindane-enriched water (10 mg/L), and the other two fed with lindane-free water as control units. The monitored parameters were: average lindane-removal efficiency (η, %), COD, and BOD5, which were determined as 63, 43, and 52%, respectively. A correlation between the… CONTINUE READING
