Tetra project FARWAPUR

Elimination of persistent substances from pharmaceutical loaded wastewater: evaluation of treatment techniques and residual environmental effects

Advanced oxidation processes (AOP) and adsorption techniques will be tested as a technology to remove persistent pharmaceuticals from wastewater. The degradation products and their respective toxicity will also be determined in various matrices. The tests will be done in laboratory and pilot scale.


Vlakwa is following this project as an observer in the user committee.
