All the latest OBG presentations, stories, videos, and more.

Treating Emerging Contaminants presentation now available

Emerging contaminants (ECs) and micropollutants are becoming a global environmental problem as there is increasing information linking them to environmental and human health hazards. Recent studies have shown that conventional technologies such as biological treatment or activated carbon adsorption can successfully remove many of the identified ECs. Others may require advanced treatment using technologies such as advanced oxidation, membrane bioreactors (MBR), or novel adsorbent materials. 

In his Treating Emerging Contaminants – Both Conventional and Advanced Treatment Technologies webinar, delivered through New York Water Environment Association (NYWEA) Environmental Education Committee Educational Webinar Series, OBG’s Scott Grieco, PhD, PE provides:

  • Description of the variety of ECs across compound classifications
  • Review of detected ECs type and extent in surface and ground water
  • Studies that show ability to remove ECs with conventional and advanced technologies
  • Focused discussion on current ECs of interest (PFAAs & 1,4-Dioxane)
