Effect of Water Treatment Processes on Oestrogenic Chemicals
ISBN: 1 84057 006 7
Preliminary investigation into the effect, under laboratory conditions, of chlorination, coagulation, ozonation and powdered activated carbon (PAC) on a range of chemicals (steroids and nonylphenols) that have demonstrated oestrogenic activity in laboratory assays. Indicates the likely effects of the various treatments but concludes that confirmation, under a wide range of conditions, requires more extensive investigation.
