Abstract

This chapter is an overview of several different advanced processes for treating emerging contaminants (ECs). Membrane processes, including membrane bioreactors, ozonation and advanced oxidation processes are discussed, with emphasis on the main advantages and drawbacks. It is concluded that treatments for ECs should combine separation and degradation in order to protect the environment and/or permit reuse of water. Finally, solar advanced oxidation processes are presented and discussed in detail, highlighting the low efficiency of TiO2 photocatalysis and the advantages of combining nanofiltration and photo-Fenton.
