Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), mainly applied in industries, have silently contaminated the global water sources for many decades. Moreover, high persistent in environment and estrogenic effects on some aquatic animals have been reported in many studies. The failure of conventional wastewater treatment plant indicates need for development of the effective treatment technique for wastewater containing the compounds. However, the previous studies mostly… CONTINUE READING
