Short and long term biosorption of silica-coated iron oxide nanoparticles in heterotrophic biofilms.

The increased application of engineered nanoparticles (ENP) in industrial processes and consumer products has raised concerns about their impact on health and environmental safety. When ENP enter the global water cycle by e.g. wastewater streams, wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) represent potential sinks for ENP. During biological WWT, the attachment of… CONTINUE READING
