Abstract

Studies in the last two decades showed that effluents of wastewater treatment plants is the main source of endocrine disrupting compounds in fresh water systems and conventional wastewater treatment facilities fail to accomplish a full removal of many of these compounds due to their specific chemical properties. Different treatment mechanisms have been tested biological nutrient removing systems especially sequencing batch reactors (SBR) showed promising results.
