Cyanobacterial blooms in freshwater reservoirs represent a threat to human and animal health because of the potential release of a wide variety of harmful metabolites, known collectively as cyanotoxins. Microcystins (MCs) are one of the most commonly...

To date, the high cost of supplying UV irradiation has prevented the widespread application of UV photolysis and titanium dioxide based photocatalysis in removing undesirable organics in the water treatment sector. To overcome this problem, the use o...

Journal Article
OLIVEIRA, S., CLEMENTE, A., MENEZES, I., GOIS, A., CARLOTO, I., LAWTON, L. and CAPELO-NETO, J. 2021. Hazardous cyanobacteria integrity response to velocity gradient and powdered activated carbon in water treatment plants. Science of the total environment [online], 773, article ID 145110. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2021.145110

Although some studies have investigated the impact caused by chemicals used on water treatment (coagulants and oxidants) on cyanobacteria integrity, the isolated effect of shear stress during coagulation is still not fully understood. This study eval... Read More about Hazardous cyanobacteria integrity response to velocity gradient and powdered activated carbon in water treatment plants..
