Endocrine disrupting compounds can affect hormone systems in organisms. However, conventional wastewater treatment plants are not able to remove these substances sufficiently before disposing effluent into the environment. Membrane technology, which is proving to be an effective barrier to these substances, is the subject of this research. The removal techniques under investigation are membrane bioreactors and nanofiltration. Initial results using wastewater from a dumpsite leachate plant… CONTINUE READING
