  journal={Wastewater Reuse and Current Challenges},
This volume offers an overview of current challenges related to the wastewater reuse practice, including analytical methodologies, bioassays, uptake of organic contaminants during crop irrigation, and antibiotic resistance-related issues. It also offers information on various wastewater reuse cases under various scenarios. 
Removal of Pathogens and Chemicals of Emerging Concern by Pilot-Scale FO-RO Hybrid Units Treating RO Concentrate, Graywater, and Sewage for Centralized and Decentralized Potable Reuse
This study evaluated the water quality produced by forward osmosis-reverse osmosis (FO-RO) treatment at pilot scale of RO concentrate generated at centralized potable reuse facilities and of graywa...
The status of freshwater and reused treated wastewater for agricultural irrigation in the Occupied Palestinian Territories
Global freshwater scarcity is imposing the demand for using non-conventional water resources for irrigation and non-irrigation purposes. Direct reuse of treated wastewater for agricultural irrigation
Ozonation of Municipal Wastewater for Water Reuse
Water is essential for life in all the levels: humans, animals and plants depend on it for their existence. The unsustainable growth, the changes in the consumption pattern and the climate change
Long-Term Strategies for Tackling Micropollutants
Nowadays, more than 30,000 chemicals (including pharmaceuticals, biocides and pesticides) are estimated to be of relevance for the aquatic environment. Wastewater has to be treated to meet the
The summer of 2018 was extraordinarily dry, and the groundwater levels and water flows are still low at some places in Sweden. Changes in water use, a growing population, higher living standards and


The risks associated with wastewater reuse and xenobiotics in the agroecological environment.
Wastewater reuse applications and contaminants of emerging concern
The challenges of wastewater reuse practices with regard to contaminants of emerging concern, their transformation while in the environment, their potential uptake by plants and crops, the effects that these contaminants may induce in the environments, the evolution and release of antibiotic resistance, and the technologies that are able to remove such contaminants from wastewater are discussed.
Occurrence of PPCPs at a Wastewater Treatment Plant and in Soil and Groundwater at a Land Application Site
Pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) can reach soil and aquatic environments through land application of wastewater effluent and agricultural runoff. The objective of this research was

Current status in wastewater treatment, reuse and research in some mediterranean countries
AbstractThe status of treated wastewater reuse as experienced in some Mediterranean Basin countries such as Greece, Israel, Italy and Cyprus is examined. General background information is given for
Impact of treated wastewater irrigation on antibiotic resistance in the soil microbiome
It is concluded that contradictory to freshwater environments where WWTP effluent influx tends to expand antibiotic- resistant bacteria (ARB) and antibiotic-resistant genes levels, TWW irrigation does not seem to impact AR levels in the soil microbiome.
