Adapting the low-cost pre-disinfection column PREDICO for simultaneous softening and disinfection of pore water
In previous works, a low-cost predisinfection column that combined coagulation-flocculation and GAC filtration was proposed for combination with electrodisinfection in the successful treatment of highly faecal polluted ...
The integration of ZVI-dehalogenation and electrochemical oxidation for the treatment of complex effluents polluted with iodinated compounds
This work evaluates the integration of dehalogenation with Zero Valent Iron (ZVI) and electrochemical oxidation (EO) for the treatment of urines polluted with iodinated X-ray contrast media (ICM). To do this, different ...
Disinfection of polymicrobial urines by electrochemical oxidation: Removal of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and genes
In this work, data obtained from the University Hospital Complex of Albacete (Spain) were selected as a case study to carry out the disinfection experiments. To do this, different configurations of electrochemical reactors ...
Occurrence and toxicity impact of pharmaceuticals in hospital effluents: Simulation based on a case of study
In the University Hospital of Albacete (Spain), the distribution of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) was studied to estimate the occurrence of the most prevalent analgesics and anti-inflammatories and antibiotics ...
Depletion of ARGs in antibiotic-resistance Klebsiella, Pseudomonas and Staphylococcus in hospital urines by electro and photo-electro disinfection
The depletion of blaKPC (K. pneumoniae), blaOXA-50 (P. aeruginosa) and mecA (S. aureus) genes from hospital urines is evaluated to contribute to solve the silent pandemic of antibiotic-resistance bacteria. A microfluidic ...
