On the trail of hazardous substances

Best Available Techniques (BAT) for reducing the entry of micropollutants from wastewater of Chemical-Physical Treatment Plants (CP Treatment Plants) for hazardous waste into water bodies

Before hazardous liquid waste is disposed of, for example, discharged into sewers or water bodies, it undergoes treatment in so-called chemical-physical treatment plants (CP plants). After processing, the treated waste still contains significant amounts of chemical compounds that are relevant to human health and the environment. In order to investigate the composition and the potential impact that these treated wastes may have, a research project was conducted in collaboration with two companies operating CP plants, Lobbe Umweltberatung GmbH and Indaver GmbH, as well as the Institute for Urban Water Management at RWTH Aachen University.
