The effect of aeration on the removal of wastewater-derived pharmaceutical residues from groundwater - a laboratory study.

Several studies on waste- or drinking water treatment processes as well as on groundwater have recently shown that some pharmaceutical residues (PRs) are redox-sensitive. Hence, their (bio)degradation depends on the redox conditions prevalent in the aquifer. Groundwater, providing raw water for drinking water production, is often anoxic and aeration is a… CONTINUE READING
