Combined Ozonation - Nanofiltration for Mycoestrogens Removal from Water

The paper describes the effectiveness of mycoestrogen removal in an integrated ozonation - nanofiltration system for water treatment. The results were compared to those obtained for ozonation and nanofiltration carried out as single processes. It has been found that the effectiveness of mycoestrogen removal in the integrated system was higher than that observed for single ozonation. During ozonation, the removal of micropollutants was affected by the dose of an oxidizing agent and type of treated water. As far as nanofiltration is concerned, its effectiveness both in the integrated system and as a single process was similar. Nevertheless, it is advisable to precede nanofiltration with ozonation because of membrane efficiency.
