There are a growing number of new chemicals in the environment that represent an ascertained or potential risk. Many of them can be found in sewage sludge and are the subject of this volume. Experts in the field highlight their occurrence and fate, risks of biosolid use, advanced chemical analysis methods, and degradation techniques with a special focus on biodegradation using fungi. In the final chapter conclusions and trends are offered as a point of departure for future studies. The double-disciplinary approach combining environmental analysis and engineering makes the book a valuable and comprehensive source of information for a broad audience, such as environmental chemists and engineers, biotechnologists, ecotoxicologists and professionals responsible for waste and water management.

Aquesta tesi doctoral se centra en el desenvolupament de mètodes analítics per determinar famílies poc estudiades de contaminants orgànics emergents en aigües ambientals i mostres de llots de depuradora. Els compostos inclosos en aquesta Tesi són els glucocorticoides, els ionòfors de polièter, les benzotriazoles, les benzotiazoles, les benzenosulfonamides i els ful·lerens. En aquesta Tesi, es demostren les capacitats ofertes per les tècniques de determinació d'avantguarda, tals com la "ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC)" i la "Asymmetrical flow field-flow Fractionation (AF4 )" acoblades a analitzadors de masses de tipus triple quadrupol (QqQ) o Orbitrap per a l'anàlisi de mostres ambientals. A més, l'ús de tècniques d'extracció emergents en el camp mediambiental, com ara "pressurised hot water extraction (PHWE)" i QuEChERS, es van explorar per a l'anàlisi de mostres de llots de depuradora. Aquestes tècniques poden ser avantatjoses en comparació amb altres tècniques d'extracció emprades en l'actualitat en l'anàlisi mediambiental, també utilitzades en aquesta Tesi, com ara la "pressurised liquid extraction ( PLE)". També en aquesta Tesi, es proporciona informació de la presència d'aquests contaminants orgànics emergents en l'aigua de riu, les aigües residuals i mostres de llots de depuradores de diferents rius i EDARs de Catalunya. A més, s'informa de les dades sobre l'eliminació d'aquests compostos tant pels tractaments d'aigües residuals secundaris i terciaris i, alguns d'ells s'han determinat per primera vegada.

Over the past fifteen years regulatory agencies have relied on their approaches to characterise and control the release of toxic substances into the aquatic environment: a GC/MS analysis for U.S. EPA designated 126 priority pollutants and 132 dangerous substances according to the European 76/464/CEE Directive and on the bioassays with aquatic bioorganisms."Emerging Contaminants" correspond in most cases to irregulated contaminants, e.g. surfactants, pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCP), or gasoline additives.These two volumes, 5/I and 5/O, of this Handbook deal with the analytical, toxicological and environmental issues of these toxicants. Based on results of up-to-date research they give the reader a balanced view on this rapidly developing and complex subject.

Pollution of water sources with emerging contaminants (micropollutants) is a fact known worldwide. Although the risks of micropollutants in sources of water are partly recognized, interpretation of consequences are controversial; thus, the future effects of altered water with micropollutants remains uncertain and may constitute a point of concern for human beings when potable water consumption is involved. Therefore, many drinking water utilities target as an important goal high-quality drinking water production to lessen quality considerations that may arise from the consumers. In this thesis, by means of the use of multivariate data analysis techniques, removal quantification is effectively determined and more understanding of the separation of micropollutants by membranes is achieved.

Several long-term trends in technology evolution have become apparent since these symposia began in 1989. Earlier presenters more frequently discussed treatment methods involving harsh and extensive human intervention. As the symposia have continued, the number of presentations describing extremely harsh and expensive treatment technologies have gradually been supplanted by more subtle and gentler methods. Such methods include subsurface-engineered barriers, phytoremediation, and bioremediation. Nineteen manuscripts were selected for inclusion in this volume, based upon peer review, scientific merit, the editors' perceptions of lasting value or innovative features, and the general applicability of either the technology itself or the scientific methods and scholarly details provided by the authors. General topics include: soil treatment, groundwater treatment, and radioactive waste treatment.

This book focuses on innovative treatment technologies for the elimination of emerging contaminants in wastewater and drinking water treatment processes. The book also discusses sources and occurrence of emerging contaminants in municipal and industrial waste, giving an overview of state-of-the-art analytical methods for their identification. Further important aspects covered include the acute and chronic effects and overall impact of emerging contaminants on the environment.
