Naproxen and bezafibrate fall into the category of pharmaceuticals that have been widely detected in the aquatic environment, and one of the major sources is the effluent discharge from wastewater treatment plants. This study investigated the sorption and degradation kinetics of naproxen and bezafibrate in the presence of activated sludge under aerobic conditions. Experimental results indicated that the adsorption of pharmaceuticals by activated sludge was rapid, and the relative… CONTINUE READING
