  • Removing hormones from wastewater

    Treated wastewater that is returned to waterways can contain trace organic pollutants that have a negative impact on the environment. In particular, chemicals known as endocrine disrupters, which mimic the effects of natural hormones or otherwise disrupt normal endocrine behaviour, have been found in treated wastewater. According to a recent study, treatment processes could be significantly, and ...

  • Continuous toxicity monitoring of wastewater

    Toxicity is the most common disturbance to biological treatment processes – especially for nitrification. The continuous toxicity monitoring proactively protects the waste water treatment plant and hence, secures to keep the plant running. LAR's online toxicity analyzer ...
