  • Potential reuse of a leather tanning and an urban wastewater treatment plant effluent in Italy

    This study aimed to evaluate the potential reuse of a leather tanning district and an urban wastewater treatment plant (UWWTP) effluents. The UWWTP discharges into the Sarno river which is one of the most polluted river in Europe. A water restoration program covering the rationalisation of the water use between industry and irrigation is in progress for this river. However, no use for fire ...

  • Electrochemical disinfection of secondary wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluent

    In this work the electrochemical disinfection of the effluent of a secondary wastewater treatment plant is investigated. In the experimental work, performed on-site with real effluents of the WWTP located in Vuelta Ostrera (Cantabria, Spain), boron-doped diamond (BDD) electrodes were employed. The initial concentration of E. coli in the effluent of the WWTP varied in the range ...

  • Inactivation of bacteria and helminth in wastewater treatment plant effluent using oxidation processes

    The contamination of bodies of water by raw and even treated sewage is worrying because pathogens that affect public health and the environment are not fully eliminated in wastewater treatment systems. The disinfection step is an important barrier to adopt to reduce this contamination. However, widely used disinfectants such as chlorine do not guarantee the inactivation of resistant organisms ...

  • The potential of four tropical wetland plants for the treatment of abattoir effluent

    We investigated morphological characteristics and treatment potential of Cyperus papyrus, Typha domingensis, Miscanthidium violaceum, and Phragmites mauritianus receiving slaughterhouse wastewater in Kampala, Uganda, in experimental mesocosms. Unplanted mesocosms acted as controls. All planted mesocosms achieved significantly higher removals for nitrogen, phosphorus and organic matter than ...

  • Estimating the risk from sewage treatment plant effluent in the Sydney catchment area

    This study employed Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment (QMRA) to estimate the gastrointestinal risks associated with Cryptosporidium and Giardia discharged from three STPs located within the Lake Burragorang catchment. The QMRA considered baseline and various hazardous event scenarios (e.g. plant failure and heavy rainfall). Under baseline conditions, the combined effect of ...

  • Paraben resistance in bacteria from sewage treatment plant effluents in India

    Parabens, the antimicrobial preservatives used in cosmetics, food and pharmaceuticals, are often detected in the aquatic environment. Generally, sewage treatment plants (STPs) receive community sewage containing parabens, which are ultimately released into streams/rivers. In this study, bacteria in STP effluents were evaluated for their resistance to parabens. The susceptibility was in the order ...
