Abstract: Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) provide a direct route for pharmaceuticals to enter the environment. Although WWTPs are not currently designed to specifically treat pharmaceuticals, biological treatment holds potential for pharmaceutical attenuation through sorption and biodegradation. Interestingly, recent observations suggest that WWTPs operated to achieve nitrification may provide... read more
