Continuation of the pilot tests with the innovative process combination ionOXess and C-MEM at Bad Reichenhall WWTP (Germany): removal of pharmaceuticals


The pilot tests concerning the removal of trace substances in the plant effluent by applying the innovative process combination ionOXess and C-MEM, which were successfully carried out by SFC Umwelttechnik GmbH at Bad Reichenhall WWTP (55,000 p.e.) in early summer, will now be continued in cooperation with the Technical University of Munich until the end of November.

The focus of the new tests will be on the capacity of the process combination regarding the removal of selected pharmaceuticals. Actually, scientific studies prove that even treated wastewaters of municipal wastewater treatment plants, especially the ones that also treat hospital wastewaters, still show too high concentrations of pharmaceutical residues.
