Continuous upflow bench-scale column experiments were carried out to investigate the use of a synthetic form polymer, polypropylene, and polypropylene coated with a thin layer of n-hexane as sorbents for hydrophobic organic compounds present in the effluent of municipal wastewater treatment plant. Two polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, namely, phenanthrene… CONTINUE READING
