Impact of activated sludge configuration and operating conditions on in vitro and in vivo responses and trace organic compound removal.


This study tested municipal sewage effluents generated at the pilot scale using conventional activated sludge (CAS), nitrifying activated sludge (CAS-N) and biological nutrient removal (BNR) in terms of the removal of trace organic compounds (TrOCs) and final effluent quality as indicated by yeast estrogenicity screening (YES), short term zebrafish… (More)
