Hospital effluents cause environmental problems since they are 5-15 more toxic than urban effluents and they are not subjected to any pre-treatment before being discharged into urban sewage networks. The hypothesis used to explain this toxicity is the presence of disinfectants and detergents. This study is aimed at highlighting the ecotoxicity of a peracetic acid-based disinfectant to Daphnia magna, as well as the combined effects of this disinfectant in binary mixtures with three types of… CONTINUE READING
